Latest update from Boomtown Fair

For the past month there’s been an indescribable buzz of excitement running throughout the office here in Bristol, the core reasons are something we really wanted to share with you all…

Since leaving the Hampshire hills we have had the mother of all debriefs with the whole team working flat out, collating feedback, reworking and re-structuring every detail that creates the Boomtown experience.

Looking at the whole festival with fresh eyes, we know exactly what didn’t work last year and exactly how to fix it. We can’t wait to implement the changes that will transform your experience and this journey we take together every year xx

Boomtown Fair

Big ups to Loyle Carner for getting a gig goer kicked out and banned for being abusive towards his female support act last week (ind.pn/2fV7jr7)

The #MeToo campaign has highlighted once again the need for all of us to pull together and call out this behaviour to ensure it's seen as inherently wrong. No one should ever be made to feel as if they don't have a voice or a right to say no.

This year we had Safe Gigs for Women on site who work with festival goers, events, bands and artists to remove sexual harassment from our music scenes. Check out our website for more info (bit.ly/2xK2nvO)

Who caught the illegal street party that kicked off in Mayfair on the Sunday? Looks like protesters had something to say about Bang Hai Industries' plans for a massive redevelopment of the district...

    Bar staff treated beyond appalling by Freemans, never known anything like it at all, and I’ve worked festivals for years. Punter all the way next year!!

    Its too late you’ve put me off for life! I spent a fortune on boomtique, emailed ahead to to explain about my health condition, was reasured it would be fine and I got there to find you were actually planning to kill me off before I even got thru the gates.sorry I’ve Always loved boomtown but felt like a massive rip off this year

    Remember crowds behave like fluids, keep them flowing. And get some undercover security to beat shit out of the tent thieves…

  14. People complaining about no water in the queue…. Have you done a festival before?? Not like you can’t supply your own water…. Can’t expect the organisers to baby sit you lot

    The 10 hour dangerous queue,
    The aggressive bullying security,
    Stages wasnt loud enough,
    I just hope all them things aint destroyed it for next year

    Getting in without a 6/7 hour wait would be the major issue

    People complaining about the sound would seemingly rather that Boomtown lost their license entirely I guess. There’s nothing they can do about the council requiring sound levels that don’t piss off the whole of Winchester.
