Boomtown have launched a video to support their Respect campaign. The idea is to respect yourself, respect each other, and respect the city. These are principles to make sure everyone; punters, crew, artists and staff alike all have a great time at the festival.
The basic principles are sound. So have a watch of the video below and get yourself into the Boomtown mindset. We are all one big community, let’s all look out for one another and have a great time while at the festival and in our every day lives.
The festival have posted some new teasers images from this years Boomtown build on Facebook! As usual, they are not giving much away. There are some big surprises this year, and so far we haven’t actually seen many updates from in and around the site. No big spoilers leaked so far… keep up the good works guys.
You should go check out the official Building Boomtown Facebook post now to see it all if you haven’t yet. Source has some of that and plenty more below.
Beware of fake tickets for Boomtown! There are still official tickets for the festival available from the official website. There is no reason to buy a ticket from social media. Once a ticket bar code has been used once, it can never be used again. The seller can sell the same ticket as many times as they want. Maybe hundreds of times. But only the first person to arrive will actually be let in.
But what if the seller seems totally legit?
That doesn’t mean they are not stupid. Check out this post from Instagram today. The seller has posted the entire ticket for the whole world to see. Anyone who buys it from him, will probably find it won’t work. Source has very professionally used MS paint to cut out the sensitive information with red boxes.
The guy is probably a totally upstanding chap, but his silly mistake of posting it publicly on Instagram has invalidated the ticket. Source has emailed Boomtown to get the bar code cancelled. They should be able to issue the poor lad with a fresh one. Source hopes that someone won’t get stung by this particular example.
But it is a lesson to be learned. Don’t buy from strangers. You don’t know what silly things they’ve been doing with that ticket.
Where is the best place to camp at Boomtown? Which is the best campsite? It’s one of the most frequent questions asked online 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.
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’ve already in a pre-booked a specific campsite, check out the map instead to see where you are heading.
Edging closer still; Boomtown Fair 2018 is less than 2 weeks away. Here is the latest Source round up of build photos, including an official video.
First up, we have a video posted yesterday on the official Facebook page. It has already been viewed 68k times at the time of post… With a capacity of 66k I guess everyone has watched it already (some more than once)! You guys are sure getting hyped.
