BoomTown team up with Arcadia this year to create a huge, pyrotechnic, sculptural extravaganza on a scale only ever seen before at Glastonbury.
With Tickets selling like hot cakes, Now seems like the best time to reveal that the fancy dress theme will be… Outer Space! Along with the theme BoomTown can outline the plans for 15 new venues and extra terrestrial areas, attractions and adventures. This year there will be 15 more bonkers venues springing up across the various streets of BoomTown: hidden deep in the underbelly of Downtown, propping up the rickety walls of Oldtown and gracing the marbled streets of May-fair Avenue, each just waiting with a whole array of new secret shenanigans to be uncovered, As well as the addition of 15 new quirky and unique venues to get lost in, there are a selection of additional stages including Arcadia, Bearded Kitten’s Bank and the Hidden Woods…

BOOMTOWN FAIR BACKGROUND: BoomTown is unlike any other festival: the legend of BoomTown tells it was once a small but prosperous retreat overhauled into a land of lawless rebels, with only the town official’s to uphold its former glory. The 2011 heavily themed event saw the festival sell out for a third time in its three-year history with the festival goers bringing as much of the entertainment to the show as the organizers. With so much packed into the huge mock town, last year’s highlights included; high-octane headline performance from Gogol Bordello, more reggae, dub and ska then you can shake a stick at, dance-offs, marriages and body crunching bass round the clock from Bassline Circus and The Lion’s Den as well as all the hidden gems scattered around the town in tiny nooks and crannies, eccentric side streets and secret alleyways!
On top of the new stages, the town committee have been given the go ahead to expand the city into a huge luscious new area for more camping with access to the town being only a short walk along the beautiful wooded walkway. The ever-growing craft and healing field has also expanded this year with new additions including saunas, hot tubs, psytrance and chill-out areas.
So dig out those Wellington’s, find your outfits and get EXCITED for yet another crazy and fun packed event that’s only found at BoomTown
