Where is the best place to camp at Boomtown? Which is the best campsite? It’s one of the most frequent questions I’m asked about Boomtown. With the help of the unofficial Source Boomtown Map, I’m going to review every campsite at the festival so you know all the best spots. Updated for 2019!
In this post, Source has given every campsite a rating, along with a selection of pros and cons. I’m only covering the main public campsites which are open to everyone with a standard ticket. So if you’re already in a pre-booked a specific campsite, check out the map instead to see where you are heading.
Boomtown Source has scoured social media and the web, to bring you a round up of all the best photos of this years Boomtown build so far.
The build is still very early in the process, and most of the photos only show scaffolding… so no spoilers yet! All photos were taken over the course of the past 10 days or so. Meaning things have now moved on further than pictured in some cases.
If you’ve been paying close attention to the Boomtown Storyline Quest group on Facebook, you’ll know that this years immersive maze has already started. This year for the first time, the maze runs deeper than ever. You can start getting involved before the annual fair has even begun!
Boomtown citizens have been busy unravelling clues planted by hackers on the OneCor company website. And trying to solve social media puzzles being posted by Mr Bliss from Momentary Bliss in Paradise Heights.
But new puzzle pieces are constantly revealing themselves. There are many more already floating out there just waiting to be found.
Boomtown Source can exclusively reveal a previously undiscovered social media account. Perhaps this could help us to unravel the next part of the mystery…
Boomtown are due to release a new film at 1pm tomorrow, called “What It Takes To Build A World”. The 19 minute film has been leaked to Youtube early, and is already available to watch right now!
It’s an absolute treat for fans of the festival. Source thinks this might be the finest video they have ever put out. The film takes a brief look at the history of Boomtown before diving in to interviews with some of the main team behind the festival. They give a rare behind the scenes glimpse of what exactly goes into building Boomtown.
Boomtown have announced 8 new stages for 2019. The new information was revealed during the first BTN broadcast of the year on Friday. But where are they? What are they replacing? We don’t have all the answers yet, but Source is perhaps able to speculate a little…
Update: Please note that this page was written in February 2019. It no longer contains the most correct and up to date information on the new stages at Boomtown 2019.
We also learnt about the new Boomtown Radical Sound Design Group. They are doing everything possible to get the bass levels as loud as permitted, without breaching the strict sound leakage restrictions which have been imposed by the local authorities.
If you didn’t see the new BTN yet, you should catch up here:
