Boomtown Chapter One: The Gathering will unleash the biggest shakeup the city has ever seen. Boomtown HQ have been hard at work during the lockdown, totally redesigning many aspects of the festival. It’s such a landmark moment in the festival’s history, that they are going right back to the beginning… Chapter one!
What you can still expect, is the worlds greatest party! But with so much else changing, Boomtown Source breaks down what’s coming at Boomtown 2022.
Have you been struggling to get your head around the changes coming to Boomtown in 2022? The festival layout has been totally scrambled! Boomtown have just released the official map for this year’s festival.
The map is beautiful, painting Boomtown to look like a theme park. But it’s a little difficult to interpret the actual layout. At Boomtown Source, we have had a go at making our own map!
Speculation about this years Boomtown line-up is reaching a fever-pitch. The festival have made the unusual step of deciding to keep the line-up a secret until just one week before the festival.
But with everyone keen to know who might be appearing this year, the thirst for line-up news and rumours has never been greater. You’re in luck, as we’ve managed to confirm over 120 acts so far, as well as at least 90 more rumoured artists.
Boomtown 2021 has now sold out. The last few tickets were snapped up at around 7pm on Thursday the 25th of Feb.
The ticket buying frenzy was triggered when the UK Government announced plans earlier this week to end all Covid-19 restrictions, with a target date of the 21st of June 2021. This easing of restrictions could allow an event like Boomtown 2021, which takes place 11th to the 15th of August, to go ahead.
A further wave of buying started, when Reading and Leeds festivals, which also take place in August, announced they are planning to go ahead. This had led to festival goers around the UK scrambling to buy tickets for festivals before they sell out. We certainly will have all earnt it!
