Tickets out the other day, managed to blag a Tier 1 and a Campervan pass.
It's selling fast this time
hopefully I'l have the work that I couldnt do this year...
might buy a couple of tickets anyways...
I'm going with some mates this year. Haven't been since 2011, has it grown much?
Tier 1's sold out in <10 mins I think.....
by 7.03 you weren't able to add them to a cart.
80k site licence cap, selling to 60k, this year
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.
Tier 2's in the bag
AMAZING festie - this might be the first time I don't go in seven years but it might just be a bit too big now... never say never though
First trailer released for 2017
Boomtown releases first trailer for the 2017 festival
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.
1st Line up
That's an insane lineup. You lucky fuckers
I was actually a bit disappointed by it.
I thought hell yeah when I saw the line up too , put it on my maybe list and was reminded will be in a lovely villa in Spain.
Hard to please?
Its all stuff I've see a lot before.
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
Boomtown 2017 festival - news and discussion
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..
Devil Kicks line up is amazing as ever. Legendary Shack Shakers especially
Oh balls, I'd decided not to go .... then I saw the lineup.
I think dervish wants to go though
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.
Just ban 13-17yo's!!
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.
