In 2015 organisers launched the crazy challenge of raising £30k in 30 days to set the very first Boondocks Festival in motion. 900 Kickstarter supporters, 2000 tickets and 27 bands later, and Boondocks took place, then they did the same again in 2016. They took a break in 2017, running the much smaller Baby Boondocks, before returning this year.
Boondocks will take place at a site on the Foxley road out of Malmesbury, just opposite Foxley Nurseries, and will allow camping right on the site.
Boondocks will focus mainly on live music, with at least 2 large outdoor stages, programmed all weekend with live bands of all genres, from the local area and from all over the country. Plus a small fairground and an outdoor skatepark.
Additional charge for kids' activities
Children's activities require a £10 wristband for the festival and allow children to enjoy a circus night, ‘make n’ take’, music and dance workshops, storytelling, balloon magic; and more.
More information will be here when available.
