Immerse yourself in a festival with an entire storyline behind it, and become part of the next chapter of the tale.
Boomtown Fair isn't an ordinary music festival; it's a living, breathing alternate universe. Ruled over by the indomitable Comrade Jose, this theatrical event lets you pick your home district and find a character for yourself, or simply sit back and watch the antics of the characters already there.
Each district has its own theme and music bill - DSTRKT 5 presents a dystopian, junkyard-styled area soundtracked by the latest in drum & bass, while Copper County represents Boomtown's past with a Wild West theme and a folk/Americana stage bill. Regardless of your preferred genre of music, there's a district for you; just be sure to make time for the international superstars headlining the Lions Den stage each night!
Boomtown Fair 2020 (or Chapter 12, as they prefer to call it) is taking place between the 12 and 16 August. Headliners include Wu-Tang Clan, Kelis, The Libertines and Kool & the Gang.
