fowey regatta live music

We’re one of the country’s best-loved Regattas, attracting thousands of visitors, many making an annual pilgrimage.

Traditional favourites include the Carnival procession, fireworks displays, the crab-catching competition and Fowey harbour swim, the Giant Pasty ceremony and pasty-eating competition, flora dance and, of course, Fowey Town Band. Plus live music every night on Town Quay.

The Regatta is also one of the UK’s best known sailing events. There’s a full programme of races, including the famous Troys, a class of sailing boat built only in Fowey.

A week of memories to treasure forever!

Fowey Regatta Favourites

Fowey Regatta 2019 Highlights

Fowey Regatta 2019 Highlights

Not The Beatles

Cornwall’s premier Beatles tribute band played a triumphant gig at Fowey Regatta last year, and they’re back by popular request.

Over two sets – early Beatles and post-Sergeant Pepper – and numerous costume changes, expect all the hits of the Fab Four. And plenty of singing along!

Saturday night, Fowey Town Quay

The Irregulars

London’s Irregulars have played all over the capital and had the crowd congoing around Town Hall at the last Fowey Cider Festival – so make sure you’ve got your dancing shoes on!

All your ska and 2-Tone favourites – and they might even reprise their ska take on The Wurzels’ I Am a Cider Drinker…

Friday night, Fowey Town Quay

The Red Devils

The official parachute display team of the British Army and Parachute Regiment are back after last year’s thrilling display (in hardly conducive conditions!).

We’re delighted to invite them back, for one of their 60 worldwide formation displays of 2019!

Friday evening, Fowey skies

The Good Old Fashioned Lover Boys

We Will Rock You on Thursday night – gauranteed! – when Cornwall’s Mercury-tastic Queen tribute band, The Good Old Fashioned Lover Boys, play the Town Quay stage.

All the hits, all the chants, all the magnificent pomp! For one night this summer, we shall all be Champions!

Thursday night, Fowey Town Quay

DJ Zorro’s Lord of Misrule Carnival Party

Hosted by Fowey’s very own DJ Zorro, plus Cornwall’s fave DJ Jace Hobbs, Reece Johnson (BBC Introducing) and Devz (Factory, Plymouth).

Plus a live PA from Rothwell performing We Got It (SPY Remix), the biggest D&B vocal roller of the last two years!

Wednesday night, Fowey Town Quay

Black Friday

Come Tuesday night, the Quay will vibrate to the Celtic-folk-punk of Cornwall’s very own seven-piece Black Friday band.

Via the South-West, Ireland and the Glastonbury Festival, we’ve finally brought them to Fowey. And a cracking night ensued, that was talked about for weeks afterwards…

Tuesday night, Fowey Town Quay

Best New Cornish Bands

Curated by Cornwall Live’s esteemed arts critic, Lee Trewhela, now in its second year.

First up, from Falmouth, the dreamy indie tones of Falmouth’s L I P S, followed by headliners O’Deus, fresh from playing Britain’s biggest rock festival, Download, at Donington Park. Catch them both before they become huge!

Monday night, Fowey Town Quay
