Festival Description

The BoomTown Fair is a music, circus, experimental and arts festival, which celebrates ska, reggae, dub, swing, punk and all spectrums of roots and bass culture. With winding streets and eccentric venues to explore, BoomTown Fair is an actual town created by an ever expanding network of artists, craftsmen and imaginative minds. The festival has sold out every year for the past four years and has impressively expanded from just 1,000 in 2009 to 28,000 in 2012. The secret to success is an eye for detail and dedication to perfection and imagination; as well as keeping the ticket price affordable and accessible for all.
