The good folk of BoomTown have released details of the folk-punk line up in Old Town, which will includes performances from
Baba Zulu, Fat Bastard Gang Band, Larry & His Flask, Transylvania, Guifa, Maika, Dirty Bourbon River Show, The Carny Villans, and Hallouminati.
Old Town is key to Boomtown’s evolving storyline where the boundaries between fiction and reality are beautifully blurred. The enigmatic district invites all its visitors to be part of the story which remains focussed on the animated, outrageous and engaging circus culture that is so close to Boomtown’s heart. Exploding with intimate musical and theatrical venues citizens can explore, amongst many, long standing micro venue Grandma’s Living Room, the infamously twisted taxidermy of Rimski’s Yard, plus the everyday cosy vibes from People’s Front Room, and The Nobody’s Inn. All of whom offer their own distinct take on cabaret and sideshows that take place within this narrative and theatrically filled world.
BoomTown takes place from Thursday 9th - Sunday 12th August, Boomtown is a theatrical event like no other; a playground with stages built with film-set like precision, brought to life by hundreds of walkabout actors populating the intricate streets. BoomTown 2018 is sold out, however the festival will be running a resale of unclaimed deposit tickets in June.
This is just one district line up of 14 unique area line-ups, along with three mega stage line-ups still to be released.
