Festival Crowd Header

All 9 districts announced with over 500 artists plus Chapter 8 trailer released!

Over the past six weeks BoomTown Fair has unleashed a stream of line-up announcements for the nine themed districts that make up the festival’s vast immersive world. As one, it’s a boundless kaleidoscope of music that trawls the far reaches of the sonic spectrum, from ska, folk, bluegrass and punk, to reggae, world and gypsy, via disco, electro-swing, hardcore, hip-hop, jungle, house, techno and much, much more! World-beating headliners Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Parov Stelar and Fun Lovin’ Criminals share stages with UK legends Madness, Bad Manners, Leftfield and Levellers, whilst international cult favourites such as Mad Caddies and Ojos De Brujo feature amongst home-grown heroes like So Solid Crew, Beardyman and Seth Lakeman.

With 500+ artists performing on 100+ stages, and 50,000 citizens from all over the world, BoomTown’s mind-blowing creative landscape is as diverse, eclectic and inspiring as it is wild, weird and downright entertaining! Take a trip into the wonderland that awaits you at Chapter 8, with the just-released trailer
