The Basics

9-12 August 2018
Winchester, United Kingdom

BoomTown Fair is a roots, reggae and bass-driven music festival held every August in Winchester, UK. 

Transforming its site into an old town, reminiscent of a film set, BoomTown is a fully immersive festival, with festival-goers encouraged to jump in and be a part of its creative story.

Complete with different districts, each with its own genre twist, BoomTown's alternative world plays host to everything from reggae, ska and funk through to garage, grime, jungle and drum and bass. 

Each year a fantastical new chapter is written into the history one of the most experimental and imaginative festivals in the world.
