BoomTown Fair Header

One of the UK's largest independent music festivals and the most theatrically driven, Boomtown Fair is a five-day interactive experience like no other. It combines live art and immersive theatre with a diverse lineup of international superstars and grassroots talent spanning a multitude of genres, from world music, folk, reggae and hip-hop, to punk rock and heavy metal, to techno, jungle, drum and bass and house (to name just a few).  It’s dedicated to providing something for everyone; from families, wellbeing enthusiasts and those that are looking for a luxury camping weekend to techno revellers and world music aficionados.

Boomtown is not just a music festival, however, it is a fictitious city made up of twelve distinct districts, each with their own theme, 27 iconic main stages and a warren of intimate and unique micro-venues. The audience’s experience is underpinned by Boomtown’s storyline which evolves each year and holds a mirror up to the real world.  Festival-goers are invited to actively get involved in the narrative and take part in The Maze, which offers treasure-hunting, puzzle-solving, live-action role-play and immersive theatre. All of this is brought to life by 100s of actors and spectacular shows across the duration of the festival. 

There are camping options for this event.
