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!
I’ve had a crack at making an unofficial Boomtown 2022 map. As the official map is a little abstract it might help put things into place for you.
It’s worth keeping in mind this is an unofficial map, and some guesswork has gone into the locations.
If you want to compare, you can click here for our map of the 2019 festival.
All the 6 main festival districts will now be located in a new expanded downtown bowl area. It’s more than twice the size compared to 2019. Uptown stages and districts are all moved into downtown, and many will be totally rebranded/updated. All the festivals main stages are now contained in the central bowl, with each district getting it’s own iconic stage.
The festivals biggest main stage will be in “Grand Central”. This is a major new stage, right in the middle of the festival. It will have a giant tower in the centre, acting as a beacon which can be seen from around the festival. The 6 districts will encircle this central area, creating a Disneyland style feel. You can immerse yourself fully in the city without the previous long walks between districts/stages.
I’ve marked the locations of the 3 forest parties confirmed for 2022. Hidden Woods, Tribe of Frog, and Tangled Roots are all back, and in their usual spots.
New for 2022 are the 3 campsite villages marked on the map in blue. Each village will also contain a central tower, like Grand Central, acting as a beacon for your campsite. The campsite village will have food, fire pits, acoustic music, and general chill out zones. This is the place to be at the end of the night, where you can wind down, meet like minded people, and watch the sun rise.
In the day time expect yoga, healing workshops, exercise classes, and all the good sort of wellbeing/craft activities that you’d previous find in Whistler’s Green.
For the first time in years, every campsite will be just a short stroll from the main action. There is going to be a lot less walking, and a lot more mayhem!
