Boomtown Halloween at Area 404 is coming! On the 2nd of November 2019, Boomtown will host a Halloween launch party at their brand new warehouse nightclub named “Area 404” located in the heart of Bristol. Boomtown Source has all the information we know so far about this new venue and event.
Area 404: What and where is it?
For the past few years, Boomtown have owned a large warehouse at 126 Albert Road in Bristol. Up until now this has been used as offices and a production area for the festival. But starting from the 1st of October 2019, it will also have a license to be used as a live events venue.
The warehouse was previously known as the “Trimite Powder Coatings Building“. But it has since been transformed into the headquarters for “Boomtown Events Ltd“. Up until now it’s been known simply as “BTHQ“. The official name for the venue has recently been announced as “Area 404”.
Below is a Google maps image of the warehouse, taken before it’s transformation into Area 404. Please note that the warehouse has been extensively refitted and refurbished since this photo was taken.
Chris Rutherford, Co-Founder and Director of Boomtown Festival, was quoted by the Bristol Post as saying: “The licence we’ve submitted is with the idea of running a series of themed Boomtown theatrical events in our warehouse, as well as offering Bristol a new venue space for general hire for fellow promoters… we’re pretty excited about this new project. Definitely watch this space! ”
What time and where is Boomtown Halloween?
Boomtown Halloween is the launch event for a brand new nightclub named “Area 404”. And it will take place on Saturday the 2nd of November 2019. The event runs from 9pm until 4am.
It is likely to be the first of many themed nights at Area 404, as it is licensed to hold as many as 24 events per year. However Source would like to highlight this number of public events per year is unlikely, as this total includes use of the venue for private parties and events too.
It is also licensed to stay open to 7am on NYE. We think that makes the prospect of a New Years party to top off 2019 quite likely.
How do I get tickets for Boomtown Halloween at Area 404?
Tickets go on sale on the 29th of August and you can preregister to buy them here. The venue is licensed for up to 3,500 attendees.
Boomtown Source first published the news of this Halloween event on our Facebook page after we spotted it in the Boomtown 2019 programme. With no other official announcement coming directly from the festival until the 23rd of August, our post sent people into a frenzy and was shared thousands of times! And I’ve been asked dozens of questions about how to get tickets, and how to get involved.
Based on the popularity of the post on our Facebook page, we predict this event will be a very hot ticket indeed. It is therefore very likely to sell out. Follow Boomtown Source on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for more updates as they become available. I’ll be keeping this page up to date as we find out more.
I’m thinking about my outfit already. Hope to see you all at the first ever Boomtown Halloween!
