around the site


Now in its 10th year BoomTown Fair is a music, arts and family festival that takes place at Matterley Estate, nr. Winchester, Hampshire, and will run from Thursday 9th until Sunday 12th August 2018. 

The main stage line-up will consist of ska and party bands from around the world, with the other live music stages offering cabaret, gypsy, folk, reggae, dub and country and western. Plus loads of cabaret, comedy, spoken word, a range of stages, an anarchist theatre, lots of site art and many areas to explore with plenty of catering options, all the normal facilities you'd expect at a festival and a massive emphasis on eco-friendly initiatives. All attendees are encouraged to dress up in fancy dress, the fancier the better!

Eco bond

To keep the site free from litter, Boomtown offer festivalgoers an eco bond initiative to help keep the streets of BoomTown tidy. Ticket purchasers will be asked to pay an additional £10 eco bond deposit. On arrival at the festival attendees will be given a 'boomtown eco bag'. Organisers ask everyone to fill this bag with all their rubbish and hand it back into one of the drop off points for recycling, and have their £10 deposit returned.

Boomtique Village

Boomtique Village provides accommodation including bell tents, tipis, yurts, pods and cabins. Boomtique wristband upgrades provide access the Boomtique Village with compost loos, hot showers, a beauty tent with straighteners and hair dryers, hot tubs, sauna, chill out tent with phone charging points and more to help you forget you're actually at a festival, you paid good money for. Alternatively there's the Boomtique Deluxe wristband which give access to most of the Boom Deluxe Rooms fancy amenities across site.
