‘This is by far the most eclectic and diverse lineup we’ve ever had, it’s even more ‘Boomtown’ than ever before. There is something really special about completely different artists, who are at the top of the genre they represent all together together on the same bill. It feels like a true privilege to be able to introduce thousands of people to a huge amount of totally different music from all over the world and the entire spectrum of musical tastes. 

’Boomtown Organisers

Boomtown’s uniqueness comes from the different ‘districts’ that make up the ever evolving ‘city’. Each district is a mini festival in its own right, with a main stage, smaller venues and an interactive theatrical experience as part of the overarching festival storyline and its own unique mix of genres represented.

Chali 2na from Jurassic 5, beautiful and soulful contemporary folk from Hampshire This Is The Kit, blends of hip hop funk, reggae, jazz, folk from Michael Franti and Spearhead.
