Festival Crowd Header

The UKs only fully interactive and theatrical music festival, BoomTown Fair can now unveil this year’s event will be revolving around the fancy dress theme of Carnival!

Sticking to the ever evolving backstory of the Fair, the inauguration of the new Mayor from the Latin Quarter will see an explosion of colour across the city with an all-encompassing carnival! However, many underhand and unexpected events have taken place over the past few months within the city walls of BoomTown including; bribery, scheming, time-travelling and the sudden appearance of the forgotten district of BoomTown’s founding fathers; The Wild West! BoomTown Fair takes place over 7th – 10th August 2014 in the Matterly Estate nr. Winchester.  The first line up announcement will be made on Tuesday 4th February, tickets are down to the third and final tier at £150 (+BF & EcoBond) and available via the website.

One of the major components of BoomTown’s appeal is the backstory and interactive theatre that runs alongside all the memorising sets, incredible acts and outright crazy characters! Last year saw the seven diverse and distinctive districts going head-to-head in the first ever onsite festival elections, resulting in Barrio Loco (the Latin Quarter) taking the title of Town Mayor! Plans by the new Mayor for 2014 event are heavily themed towards a carnival-esque atmosphere, bringing in a bright and colourful, vibrant energy to the entire festival site. However, whilst the new Mayor is busy planning, the ex-Mayor has been preoccupied with plotting! In a twist to the official plans the disgruntled, ousted ex-Mayor will be re-introducing The Wild West to the streets of BoomTown through the power of time travel! 

BoomTown has now has nine districts in total, each one celebrating different cultures and musical genres, here’s an overview of what’s what, who’s who and most importantly, what to wear!
