How did we do?

At Boomtown Source, we listed 185 rumoured artists. And so far 121 of those have now been confirmed on the above posters! We still believe many of the others are still coming, but just on some of the smaller unannounced stages.

Spotify Playlists

The legends at Boomtown Chat have made a Spotify Playlist based on all the confirmed acts for Boomtown 2023 so far. You can also find stage specific playlists below.

Stage by stage Spotify playlists:

Prodigy/Fatboy Slim…Still Possible?

These acts were strongly hinted by Boomtown in promotion material, but did not appear in the main announcements. Therefore the chance of them appearing now seems much lower. But not impossible! There are some theories as to why:

  1. The hints were “red herrings” to throw people off the scent of The Prodigy
  2. The 2 acts hinted have both collaborated with The Prodigy, so actually these could have just supposed to have been Prodigy hints all along
  3. Perhaps these 2 acts are still appearing in some form, perhaps as special guests. Some have suggested both of them could appear during The Prodigy, but scheduling commitments makes this seem difficult.

2 Acts, Order A-Z

  • Fatboy Slim
  • Pendulum

Self confirmed / Leaked

All of the below have either self confirmed via socials, or we have received some kind of reliable tip off. There is no guarantee, but we are pretty sure these acts are on the Boomtown 2023 line-up! We haven’t seen them on any of the above posters yet, but we still think they might be there at unannounced micro-venues, or appearing secretly.

17 Acts, Order A-Z

  • Asher Simmons
  • Bubski
  • Bushbby
  • CJ Beatz
  • Jaz (
  • LVT (
  • Majestic

Highly Likely

Boomtown Source has reason to believe that the below acts still have a high chance of being at Boomtown 2023. We think you can bank on it, but don’t sue us.

6 Acts, Order A-Z

  • DJ Kara
  • Esme Banks
  • Kings of the Rollers
  • Mia Koden
  • Mozey
  • Vibe Chemistry


Boomtown Source has seen rumours on some of the below acts, but cannot verify. Many of them have Boomtown shaped gaps in their touring schedules, or are already in the area. But so far they haven’t been announced, so chances are fading. Some of these could easily be booked in smaller venues though, so don’t give up just yet!

23 Acts, Order A-Z

  • A.M.C

Probably not

Given the main lineup has now dropped, these previously rumored acts seem extremely unlikely to appear at Boomtown. Forget about it.

15 Acts, Order A-Z

  • Aphex Twin
  • Carroll Thompson
  • Chemical Brothers
  • David Rodigan
  • Dizzie Rascal
  • Dub Pistols
