BoomTown Fair 2014: 7th – 10th August

BoomTown 2014 Explore Our World

If you’re longing to fill your summer with magic, mischief and make-believe, look no further! In August 2014, BoomTown Fair will be returning to Hampshire for its latest and greatest installment, offering up some of the biggest and best names around, a huge collection of musical genres and activities plus more madness than ever thought possible under one roof!

Venturing to places no other UK music festival has dared before, BoomTown is not your average muddy musical camp out. Creating eight unique and diverse ‘districts’ – all complete with their own camp sites – and totally transforming its surroundings, the Fair indulges each city ‘resident’ with a fully immersive experience; dunking them into the magic of the ‘city’ and letting their imaginations run wild!

This year, BoomTown residents will be spoilt for choice when deciding which district to call home; will it be Barrio Loco, ChinaTown, Mayfair Avenue, OldTown, Whistlers Green, Kidztown, TrenchTown, DownTown or the Wild West? The possibilities are endless.

Each district provides a homely and welcoming atmosphere – but with a difference! A wander down swanky Mayfair Avenue will lead you to the likes of a Gentleman’s club or Roller Disco, whereas a trip into TrenchTown will bring you the best of Dub, Reggae, Dance and Jungle as you party all night long in an Aztec Temple or Forrest Party! Plus, with endless winding streets and hidden nooks and crannies scattered throughout the districts, there’s always somewhere new to discover and explore!

With over 400 acts announced across the weekend, headliners for this year’s edition showcase such talents as: The Cat Empire, NOFX, Jimmy Cliff, The Wailers, Tinariwen, Bellowhead, Afro Celt Sound System, Playing for Change, Raggasonic, Lady Saw, UK Allstars, Babylon Circus, Toasters, Special Request and Eats Everything – plus one very special headliner is still to be announced for Saturday night!

For a festival commonly known as the ‘pop-up city where the impossible is possible and the abnormal is normal’, do you really want to miss out on the magic?
