Is the crowd young at Boom? I'm 18 and about to book with my friends and honestly can't wait as it looks amazing.

Also is there any other forum or place where you can get more information/chats about Boom?

The majority are under 25, I'd say. The first time I went (about 5 years ago) there was almost no one over about 22.

There's facebook, but it's facebook.

That was quick - does that mean it was legit, but leaked?

how come? what was the post above?

I'm a big reggae fan, and it looks like this year there's nothing to excite me.

what a tease :( only  5 days to wait  . . . . . . . . ..

one of the organisers has been querying thoughts on Sean Paul via FB.  Hopefully not, but judging by Neil's comment sounds like a similar sort of reggae/dancehall act

you might find a few rumoured names on the Boomtown line-up page on a website around here somewhere. :P

I know they've tried to book him in the past, and failed. 

A little birdy asked me to recommend some UK festies that were Manu's sort of thing that same year, and top of the list I sent back was Boomtown ... turned out it was an attempt to find more places he might play to make a trip to the UK for Boomtown worthwhile.

I don't think Manu has much love for UK festies. I know he's not a fan of Glastonbury at all.

That is interesting... 

i remember he had something like a 4pm slot at Glastonbury when he played.... should have headlined west holts or something instead. 

I saw them at lovebox that year. F'ing brilliant - it even made it worth going to lovebox!!

There was a few interesting ones: Dub Poet (not LKJ), Two classic 70's MCs playing together, but nothing spectacular on the reggae front i agree.

He did headline West Holts the last time he played and an early evening Pyramid slot.  They pulled the plug on him on West Holts.  That's not why he doesn't like it though, he says in his auto biography that Glastonbury reminds him of Palestine with all the fences and CCTV cameras, keeping people in and out.

Not too worried about the lineup really. First time at Boomtown so not too bothered for this one as it gives us loads of time to take it all in. 

So excited for this!!!
