    Tried getting the Tier 1 tickets but missed out (went so quick!), so had to settle for full price. Ah fuck it, I'm going Boomtown! Loved it so much this year. Got a little crew coming this time round.

    I reckon it will sell out even quicker in 2018, with it being Glasto's fallow year.

    That's amazing, I knew Boomtown had grown, but had no idea it was THAT big now.

    At some point I'd be keen to return, but for date, location and other reasons, the van is taking us elsewhere this year around Boomtown time.

    Enjoy it all anyway though, everybody :). Our mate Andrew went down last year and got the bug, he'll be back. He absolutely loved the bands/acts, partying atmosphere, and the fact there was so much to do and see.

    He confirmed to us what we'd expected when we chatted, that there were plenty of caned people there. Shurely not etc. :D

    Right which of you reprobates is off this year? Broke my arm and elbow days before the last one and am well on it this year!

    Let's organise some kind of get-together too. Would love to catch up with you guys.

    Love to one and all x

    Just moved to the area and ordered some 40 quid day passes for locals- sunday only. Here's hoping the specials will be playing on sunday? Probably not..

    I do think its a bit bollocks that younger parents are not allowed to take their kids

    And has been announced after tickets have been on sale a good while.

    Edit: They clarified a bit

    I can see what they're trying/being required to do..... but didn't put it across very well.

    Alright people. Anyone who has been to Boom town before, can you answer me a question!
    I emailed boom town info, but it left me more confused.
    Basically, I was asking about the alcohol situation, whether you could take your own drink into the different districts. I got a reply from them that stated that your only allowed to take 16x 440ml cans (or the equivalent) to the festival, and thats it! Surely this can't be the case. Hows 16 cans meant to last the whole festival!
    If any of you can help me out with this let me know!

    Yeah it's fine. Once you're in you're in, there's no barriers between the districts.

    It's not. They want you to buy more inside.
