Earlier today, in a bold move, the festivals creative director revealed the festival may be considering going meat free for Boomtown 2020. It has created an extremely lively debate on social media. Seems we have a lot to discuss…
It was calculated that at least 10,000 animals were slaughtered to provide food for the 65,999 revellers at Boomtown 2018. Making up for more than a third of the festivals environmental impact! With Boomtown’s sustainability objectives taking centre stage during the 2018 closing show, reducing meat consumption could be a big win! Or is it instead a massive own goal, opposed by the festival’s fans…
Boomtown clocked up record ticket sales in just the first few days of being available. On the 1st of November 2018, over 20,000 tickets sold in the first 2 hours alone. So does that mean the festival is on course to totally sell out? And if it does, then when will it sell out?
Was the identity of the masked man hidden on the Boomtown official website all along? At Boomtown Source we’ve uncovered a mind blowing secret on the official website. The identity of the masked man could have been figured out long before the big reveal on the Sunday night of this years festival.
The crew are still busy clearing away Boomtown 2018, but for the vast majority of us it’s now over, and we have all returned to reality. Our boring everyday non-Boomtown lives =(
It has taken Source 4 days to recover enough to write anything for the blog. I know about and have heard many stories of the difficult adjustment period after Boomtown. It’s just hard to return back to real life, right?
It really is a testament to the quality of Boomtown. A fantasy world, that makes us believe that anything is possible, shows us who we can truly be, and questions our very reality. Going back to work sucks.
This is the last blog post until after the festival! Source is about to go into full out Boomtown mode, and won’t be in a fit state for writing or posting anything for the next 5 or 6 days. So the blog is on official hiatus until after recovery.
If you’re coming to this page on your mobile from the festival, and are just looking for some quick links to the most popular information pages, here you go:
Source is unfortunately not going to Boomtown until Thursday morning. But Source has enjoyed seeing many photos of all of your beautiful faces on coaches, in the queue, and setting up your tents. And will see the rest of your beautiful faces tomorrow at the fair.
If you just can’t go without all the latest news and updates during the festival, Boomtown Chat is a non-stop source of information, photos, and chatter. But really you should just turn off your phone for the whole weekend and enjoy the festival. That’s what Source is doing at least!
Thank’s for all your support, this blog page is only 3 weeks old, but Source has had so many wonderful comments and compliments. The Best Campsite guide has been read by almost 6000 people! And the Source Boomtown Map went viral all over social media and message boards. It’s totally blown me away.
You guys are awesome, and Source looks forward to partying with each and everyone of you this weekend.
