Rumours, wish list and speculation

Source also thinks that it’s time to start up the Boomtown 2020 rumour mill. Last year I only published a few rumours from high quality sources, and as a result they all turned out to be 100% true! This year I am taking a few more risks/guesses so will try and put the strength of the rumours into categories…

Likely Rumours:

These rumours have come from trusted sources, and seem like fairly safe bets. But don’t count your chickens yet…

-Electric Swing Circus
-Dirty Saffi

Possible Rumours:

These rumours are more uncertain, but there has at least been some inkling of a clue that they might be appearing. There’s no guarantee…

-Noisia (now confirmed!)
Aphex Twin
(not happening)
(now confirmed!)

-Fatboy Slim
-Inner City / Kevin Saunderson
-Wu Tang Clan (now confirmed!)
-Damian Marley
(now confirmed!)

Speculative/Wish List:

These rumours are just speculation from around the community, and should be taken with a grain of salt. But sometimes no smoke without fire? Don’t take these too seriously yet…

-Major Lazer / Diplo
-Shy FX (now confirmed!)
-Pendulum Trinity (now confirmed!)
-Fat Freddy’s Drop
-Reel Big Fish
-No Doubt
-The Wurzels
-Dropkick Murphys
-Mad Caddies
(now confirmed!)
-Too Many T’s
-Oh My God! It’s The Church

-Smerin’s Anti Social Club
-Tankus the Henge


This is just a selection of the better known regular acts who show up most every year at Boomtown…

-Beans on Toast
-AAA Badboy

-Count Skylarkin
-Countless regular DJS, crews and soundsystems

Definitely not:

Just a quick note that System of a Down are a UK festival exclusive at Download in 2020, so won’t be appearing at Boomtown. Sad times.
