7th - 10th August 2014: THE LINE UP BEGINS...

Barrio Loco District takes over the City and Two New Stages are Revealed

Boomtown has clawed its way to the top of the notorious UK festival scene, holding its annual four-day party in the streets of a fully functioning city that never sleeps.

Proud of its eclectic music and diverse city dwellers, previous line ups include world-class acts from the swirling scenes of reggae, dub, dancehall, ska, punk, psy-trance, hip-hop, swing, electro, techno, gypsy and Balkan. If you couldn't find something to please your ears then there was seriously something wrong with you...

FIRST LINE UP ANNOUCEMENT WAS MADE AT MIDDAY TODAY:

THE CAT EMPIRE, NOFX, HOT 8 BRASS BAND, BABYHEAD, THE WAILERS, JIMMY CLIFF, UK ALLSTARS (INCL. CONGO NATTY), THE SKINTS (and many more - check the website for more details - link at the bottom of this page)

This year, the city has expanded its suburbs even further to include two new districts with full stages: Hold it Down Town (presenting folk and world music) and Wild West (returning to the city's historical roots of bluegrass, country and scrumpy).

 

Tourists flood the city each summer and choose their allegiance - will it be Down Town, Mayfair Avenue, Old Town, Trench Town, China Town, Holditdown Town, Barrio Loco or Kidztown this year???

Here's a taste of what revellers got up to last year...
