Lusty Glaze Beach Sundowner Sessions 2014
Newquay sees its fair share of live music events held over the summer months, but none quite as special as these. The secluded sandy haven that is Lusty Glaze Beach will once again provide the backdrop for some seriously unforgettable gigs, and with a schedule jam-packed with live acts, food and drink, we at GCG can’t wait to sink our toes in the sand.

Lusty Glaze Beach,
Lusty Glaze Road,
There’s a real yearning in Cornwall for nights like these, that epitomise the Cornish summer, capturing the atmosphere of a real beachside celebration, getting far away from the image of clotted cream and sunburn behind a windbreaker. Running throughout the summer, the impressive line-up includes a (frankly enormous) list of local talent playing a series of free gigs, and six ticketed events to see some huge names.
Lusty Glaze veterans and beloved Cornish boys Fisherman’s Friends are returning to their natural watery habitat on July 4th to wind down from what is sure to be a rousing performance at this year’s Glastonbury with some soul-moving shanties, leading a Celtic and folk night. Brit nominees The Feeling will no doubt express their own with dance-inducing gusto on July 24th with support from Lloyd Yate, and Morcheeba are set to bring their anthemic, silky-voiced stylings to the perfect setting for their laid-back summery sound on July 31st.
Not to be missed is fellow Brit nominee Newton Faulkner on August 1st, bringing his trademark red dreadlocks and percussive guitar playing back to Cornwall, Simon and Oscar from Ocean Colour Scene with an acoustic set on August 17th, and on August 18th in the last of the ticketed events, Bellowhead will be supported by one of the South West’s absolute finest and most fun acts – I challenge anyone to witness People’s String Foundation and not dance.
Tickets range from £18.00 to £26.50, and parking is available but limited. Be prepared for the 133 step stomp to the beach, and all the more so to get back up it at the end of the night. Families are welcomes, and so are pooches as long as they behave themselves on their leads.
Fill your tum with BBQ grub and Cornish seafood paella, grab a dark and stormy from the bar and make your way to the beach to kick your shoes of and get dancing. I shall see you front and centre.
