As well as huge musical highlight acts the festival hold host to an eclectic line up of all underground genres of music.
Even with an emphasis on bass/dance music the festival hosts a brilliant arrangement of every genre crossing over from folk to rock to roots reggae, taking you on a dance of musical delights to places you’ve only ever dreamed of.
The dreamlike, imaginary stage designs throughout the festival as well as the main stages are as exciting as the music they host, visually exciting, audio visual, cabarets come to life for this very special Boomtown Fair, chapter 11. The party starts when the festival doors open and doesn’t stop till you leave.
