Live Music

Every year we have a superb group of musicians, bands and entertainment for you to enjoy through the day.

We will be delighted to share this year’s music line-up with you as they are confirmed. Some old faces you love and have been with us since we started, and some new ones we know you will LOVE as well.

We can announce our headliners though and, if you are an act who has already confirmed and you aren’t here yet – don’t worry, you will be. As always, the support we get from the great musical talent across the area and further afield is massively appreciated.

Responsible Drinking

At Newquay Beer Festival, we encourage responsible drinking, in a safe and welcoming environment.

We operate a Challenge 25 policy on-site, which means that if you are lucky enough to look under 25 years of age, then we will ask you for identification to verify you are over 18.

Acceptable forms of identification are:

  • Photocard Driving Licence
  • A valid UK Passport

The site will be patrolled by both professional security staff, and volunteer marshals to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable, and safe time.

As the event is slightly outside of the resort, car parking is available. However, for your return journey there is a bus stop outside the park, and also many regular taxi services available.
