Boomtown Site Management

Boomtown has nine districts set across a green field site outside of Winchester in the South of England. Districts include Barrio Loco, Chinatown, Mayfair Avenue, Old Town, Whistlers Green, Kidztown, Trenchtown, Dstrkt 5, Wild West and Sunrise Arena. Each of these area features micro and nano venues themed to match the respective district.

Boomtown features 22 Stages & Arenas, from a myan temple (Lions Den) dedicated to Reggae, thru to the new Bang Hai Palace blasting out Drum n Bass. Boomtown encoumpasses genres including Ska, Reggae, Folk, World, Hip-Hop, Drum n Bass, Jungle, Garage and so much more.

Build & Break
A four and a half week build, one week operate and three week pack down resulted in an amazingly inspirational event for 50,000 patrons. The reviews of this festival speak wonders of the coordinated site and art elements, and the success of onsite services such as toilets, showers, water and welfare.
