I didn’t know I was going to be posting another build update the very next day! Exciting times. Also why not check out yesterdays Boomtown Build Update.
Work has started on building Boomtown Festival for 2018, and a couple of photos have started to make their way onto social media over the weekend.
Sam Francis shared this great photo of Downtown construction in progress on the Boomtown Chat Facebook page.
The Boomtown Chat Facebook page is a very active community with over 2000 members, and dozens of new posts every day. I recommend checking it out here.
Over on Instagram, @zedfrances had this photo to share of Sector 6 going up. I recommend checking out her Instagram, as their are a few more build photos on there too.
Check out how dry that grass is! Hopefully the endless British summer of 2018 can last just a few more weeks to take us through Boomtown weekend too.
I’m starting to get just a wee bit excited now.
