Boomtown Fair Pre event review update
March 18, 2020 | By: Leeann Walters
With Boomtown fair creeping ever closer and the lineup now out making it tantalisingly real excitement is certainly at its highest. With the line up now including The Libertines, Wu-Tang-Clan, Flogging Molly,Skindred and Municipal Waste to scratch the surface and name but a few this year’s outstanding and diverse line up is set to be the best yet. With personal favourites that I myself can’t wait to see such as Andy C, SHY FX, Sick Of It All and Dinosaur Pile-Up chapter 12 is set to be the festival of the New Decade and set precedent for all other festivals to try and follow when it comes to the calibre of musical acts to be expected, entertainment, diversity and all of the extras that only come with Boomtown fair.
With a few added themes to this year’s monumental Boomtown these are to include working alongside ‘Tree Sisters’ who support the restoration of the planet through tropical reforestation and the empowerment of women with a target to plant one million trees. People who wish to make a difference and contribute towards this noble cause in any way can do so by either contributing a £2 donation when purchasing a ticket and for all those attending or working at the festival or contributing via an online fundraising platform which can be found on the Boomtown Fair official site to which you can find all of the information regarding this brilliant venture to help with world preservation.
In light of current affairs involving COVID-19 Boomtown is also releasing up to date statements with regards to the festival. Boomtown Fair will still go ahead as planned as it is not set to take place until August. Boomtown has had back to back meetings, planning and running all risk assessments to ensure the safety of all those who attend this spectacular event. All Government guidelines will be monitored and information updated as the months progress so that all festival goers are fully informed of any situation’s that unfold regarding Boomtown and can be found on the official Boomtown Site. A massive thank you should be made to all those continuing to buy tickets and support this most amazing festival, keeping the Faith and showing positivity. Boomtown Fair is a good few months away and will certainly be the light needed at the end of this dark tunnel.
With new stages, additions to Area 404, Metropolis District and exciting additions to Forest Parties the excitement is certainly mounting. One of the main elements I love about Boomtown is how diverse it is musically, culturally, in general entertainment and spiritual enlightenment. With Chapter 12 set to be no acceptation there is to be no shortage of surprises, storylines and teachings on acceptance and exclusive behaviour that should always be shown by society. Amazing LGBTQ+ collective Little Gay Brother and French Electro Folomour along with others such as Glitterbox have an enticing lineup for the House and Disco District Metropolis. Combining Music and Theatre like no other this futuristic themed district welcomes the public into an ‘advanced society that subscribes to the utopian dream’ and is this year introducing a brand new stage Zenith! The full line up and any extra info you may want about Zenith can be found on the Boomtown Site. With Hidden Woods and Tangled Roots still set to be a huge part of the Festival there is nothing but greatness to be expected for Chapter 12. Known for it’s renowned Forest parties Tangled Roots and Hidden Woods is home to the best Dancehall, Dub, Jazz, Hip Hop, Dubstep, Electronic and Sound system Culture to scratch the surface of music genre’s, transporting you to the jungle with their own Bench bars and Tree top walks. A couple of acts to be gracing these very special woods this year are to include Gardna, Hollie Cook and Pinch to name just a few. I feel that Chapter 12s Forest parties may be the best on record and setting a whole new feeling and demonstrating how exceptional areas like these making it a wholly unique experience like none other.
If you don’t already have your Boomtown Fair Chapter 12 tickets I implore you to get buying now! With Stages unlike any you have seen before, Musical acts and entertainment to suit all and the best crowds making it a fun and memorable experience it will be the place to be this August!!
