• Boomtown is one of the UK’s largest, truly independent music and theatrical festivals. The 66,000 capacity, five day experience combines a diverse multi-genre musical lineup with groundbreaking theatrical concepts and awe inspiring circus spectaculars, in a totally immersive world that exists within a living, breathing, fictitious city. The lineup, made up of over 500 artists, features international superstars right through to grassroots talent who perform across the 27 main stages and 80 interactive street venues; bringing with them sounds from over 80 musical genres. Boomtown follows a storyline that evolves each year and is played out across all areas of the sprawling city that is made up of 14 uniquely themed districts. It’s a theatrically-led experience like no other where hundreds of actors bring the film-like street sets to life and alongside enjoying the extraordinary musical programme. They encourage the public to explore all the city has to offer, to become their inner character and be a part of the story themselves.
