BoomTown Fair is the most ambitious independent music festival in the UK. Its sheer scale is mind-blowing, and the lineup packs in more acts and artists than you could ever ask for.

A custom-built city straight from the set of a movie hosts 22 stages across 9 themed districts, with countless crowd performers bringing BoomTown to life. 35km of streets taken from America’s wild west join up English tudor housing and a stage made out of a giant boombox – the word ‘unique’ barely does it justice.

And with an outlandish soundtrack led by Stephen “Ragga” Marley, SOJA, Flogging Molly and Gogol Bordello, BoomTown’s immersive world will welcome in a whole new set of residents this August.

Despite having one of the largest festival lineups in the world, it's BoomTown's pop-up city that really marks it out from the crowd. A quiet corner of the English countryside is turned into a fantasy world, where life back home can be left behind for four days and nights.


Address

Matterley Estate, Alresford Road, Winchester, SO21 1HW, United Kingdom
