Boomtown 2012

Discussion in 'festivals' started by little monster, Jan 18, 2012.

  1. Anyone going to this? I've been for the last two years and its been siiiick! If you are into your ragga then this is a must in my opinion. Think the line up will start to be announced in Feb.

    We were hoping to be child free this year, but my sister is very selfishly going to have a baby that weekend so all possible babysitters will be busy :rolleyes:

    That said, I thought it was a suprisingly good festival for kids.

    Yes, we all had fun, the kids field was pretty good wasn't it. Trouble was at night time we both wanted to go out together and doing it on your own just isn't the same.

    I'm only going if I can get in free, fucked if I'm paying that much to have them turn off the bass at sunset. :mad:

    (If I'm on it I'll probably get in free though)

    For the price it cost to rent one, I'm thinking it might be better to just buy one between me and a few of my mates! We always huddle together in the biggest tent for the longest time until sleep hinders us so it makes sense to just get a massive fuck off bell tent that'll accomodate the horde :cool:

    Privacy is an issue, though.

    I thought about that too... but then we tend to all sleep a different times and theres a fair amount of tent/sleeping hopping anyway. And it's lnot like anyone wants to have sex at a festival :facepalm:

    I will also most likely be attending something called natural rhythm in cambridge. You should all come as it's well cheap and I'll be running a chai stall/chill out area. Maybe.

    I wouldnt be able to work it, would have to leave sunday to get to work monday..... Its still my term time
     
  28. I'm pretty sure last year the music was pounding until around 2am when the main tents stopped - due to the location in a natural bowl it holds the sound in really well. I noticed a marked increase in volume compared to 2010 when by 11/12pm yes it was pretty quiet.
