Boomtown Festival & Boomtown Springs

Boomtown is entering its tenth running this year, and for the milestone anniversary, the Hampshire-based festival is truly pulling out all the stops. A bit of background for those that aren’t familiar with Boomtown: The four-day music festival (8 – 12 August) has made a name for itself since its launch in 2009 for its unique mix of immersive theatre elements.
To clarify, that’s incredible districts designed around the theme, film set-like stages and hundreds of actors dotted around the festival that populate the pop-up city.
Each year is referred to as a ‘Chapter’ and reflects its ongoing theatre narrative. For 2018? Enter ‘Chapter 10: The Machine Cannot Be Stopped’.
This year is extra special because Boomtown are launching Boomtown Springs, an immersive theatrical camping experience complete with all the best camping facilities and of course, access to the rest of Boomtown city. In addition, the festival in opening one day early this year (on Wednesday the 8th), meaning one more day of partying in honour of its tenth year.
