BoomTown Fair is surely one of the most creative and diverse music festivals in the UK.

Embracing its independence, the festival converts a corner of the English countryside into something straight out of a "western come tudor drama" movie set. 

With 22 stages across 9 themed districts vibrating to the soundwaves of everything from folk to jungle, the huge variety of musical artists will be joined by a cartload of interactive performers who will immerse festival-goers as they walk the town's streets, turning BoomTown into a dystopian carnival intended to reflect current global society.
