With 2 weeks to go until Boomtown 2018, it’s time to sit down and have a chat about the weather. You might have seen that it’s predicted to be as hot as 37c this week in parts of London.
Normally as a festival weekend approaches in the UK, we all start frantically checking the weather forecast. We usually are hoping, wishing and praying for no rain.
6/8/18: Editors note – the weather forecast has significantly changed since this article was written. Pack for all weather!
This year though the focus is a little different. Everyone is asking… Just how hot is Boomtown going to be? In case you have been living under a rock, we are enjoying one of the best summers in UK history. It has barely rained at all in almost 3 months for most of the South of England. And everyday has been a BBQ day for weeks on end.
Getting lost and discovering a new act, secret alleyway, or forest party is all part of the fun at Boomtown Fair. But sometimes you need to know where you’re going, so that you can find your way to the acts you want to see.
The 3rd episode of “BTN: Boomtown News” is out for 2018. This time, it focuses on the totally new layout of the festival. The festival gods have finally gifted us with a Boomtown Map… in video form!
A lot has changed for 2018. Most of the camping has been removed from the bowl area. Downtown has been totally rearranged and expanded into a whole new maze of alleyways and hidden venues. See what else you can spot. Exciting times!
Remember to check out the Source unofficial Boomtown Map which should help clear up any confusion about the new layout.
