Boomtown Fair calls for a mass of people in fancy

Boomtown’s Mayor and his officials have a vision of unparalleled grandeur; a vision to create the most outrageous and extravagant town on the planet! To do this Boomtown is calling for all to don their fanciest of dress and transform into a pillar of

With brand new access to previously restricted parts of Boomtown there will be oodles of extra space for street parties, shop raves and general back alleyway mayhem! Since a town is not complete without its citizens, Boomtown are looking for the all festival goers to tap into their inner identity and unleash the beast from within to really let their hair down! Boomtown welcomes all sorts; Dentists, doctors, nurses, butchers, bakers, candle stick makers, soldiers, sailors, vicars, tailors, lollypop men and ladies, buskers, jesters, bankers, blacksmiths, postmen, patients, politicians or whatever takes your fancy!

With a seemingly endless list Boomtowners are invited to let the imagination run wild; indulge the wildest fantasies, bust out the wackiest outfits and become a true resident of Boomtown!

With Boombuses running from Bristol, London, Brighton, Manchester and Sheffield; and additional hotspot locations added to the timetable; Southampton, Norwich, Cambridge and Cardiff, Boomtown will be bursting from its cultural seems!

Boomtown fair takes place from 11-14th August with this being bigger and better than any other. The line up so far consists of acts such as Gogol Bordello, Caravan Palace, Capleton and many more.
