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.

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.

Source didn’t expect 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.
