Boomtown Fair returns in 2019 with a new chapter in the immersive, ongoing storyline.
Week 2 (7-11) of August 2019 sees the return of the hugely popular Boomtown Fair back for it’s 11th year since it’s launch in 2009. With over 1000 artists performing over the event, on 38 stages across the site, Chapter 11 is sure to be the most musically diverse lineup in the history of the festival. This is definitely going to be the biggest Boomtown Fair ever!
The most noticeable thing for 2019 so far is the hugely diverse selection of musical acts and artists that will be performing this year. From D&B & House to Folk, there will be something to suit everyone. With such a large amount of stages (and don’t forget those secret, hidden venues behind the doors), you can be certain to find somewhere to call home.
Headliners this year include Ms. Lauryn Hill, The Streets, Chase & Status and Groove Armada – Join us next week as we delve into who we will be looking out for.
A huge part of Boomtown Fair is the storyline that weaves it’s way into every fibre of the festival site. As you traverse the hill that separates Downtown from Uptown, you get to choose just how involved you become in the ongoing story arc.
In previous years, there have been some fantastic, seemingly impromptu performances in the streets in each district, in which you have a choice – be a spectator or play a part in the show. If you really want to take on a role, head to the Job Centre in the Town Centre, and see if you are suited to a specific job, or destined to claim benefits. On the Sunday, the staff hold their annual Christmas Party, something that should not be missed! Word has it, there’s a special festive play this year, after the success of the Boomtown Nativity back in 2018.
The most noticeable thing for 2019 so far is the eclectic selection of musical acts and artists that will be performing this year. From D&B, House to Trance & Folk, there really is an artist for every musical taste. Check out this Spotify playlist to get a glimpse of what’s to come!
We will be breaking down the story, scenery, stages, musical acts and more in the coming few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled. Boomtown Ch.11 is destined to be bigger, better, and more sustainable in 2019.
