    Boomtown 2018

    Whatever it was it sounds like a good reason. Urinal signposting was godawful though, only found the one by Robotika on Sunday, never found ones near Tangled Roots or the Psyforest. The new layout really spangled me, I was so used to knowing where everything was going to be

    Oh cool, but also weird! Nicer on draught than the cans. I do wish the drinks provision would go back to how it was in 2013, I mean they ran out of stuff but it was a glorious selection of non-standard fare.

    I don't think the Red Stripe was on tap anywhere? It was Symonds, Maltsmiths, Sbow Dark Fruits and I thought Amstel or something... didn't drink much beer but I remember being surprised at the cans of Red Stripe so don't think it was the standard beer. It was all the same as Bluedot and that was Amstel

    Cans only was only at a very few bars, most had a few normal pints and there was more in certain locations. I agree there should be more, used to be more varied - but this idea it's just cans of those two is off.

    Boomtown 2018

    Something got a bit confused there - it was Nicholas Boom who came back to ask the question - The Masked Man was identified as the head of BangHai Industries, and had been playing people off against each other to take control. But those were lovely to read and gave me a bit of a lump in the throat - Boomtown blew me away my first time too, and the bastard thing still does it again and again. Five years now, jaw still drops every time not just once but multiple times around site. While we were enjoying a dance in the Gypsy Disco my mate popped outside for some fresh air and came back in raving about some crazy fish ceremony and procession that had taken over OldTown in the middle of the night full of fire and costume - when we came out it was like nothing had happened and it was all a dream - that this wasn't in any way at all surprising or unusual says a lot.

    That was mental Only managed to find Sean and Phil though, then the fun kicked in and next thing I knew it was nighttime Thursday and I was jumping around somewhere having missed several attempted meetups. Glad to hear it has the Ben seal of approval, hope you managed to wear yourself out! The changes around Barrio Loco and Metropolis were absolutely amazing, even if Poco Loco had lost it's frontage. Hangar 161 was a helluva structure too. Can't believe every year they manage to make my jaw drop Springs was odd - didn't feel robbed but not the best really, did a good job of making it feel like Boomtown straight away on Wednesday. Going to bed clean and showered after Sunday night was a thing of wonder. Extremely Drunken Sunday chewing through our drinks vouchers was a bit of a highlight, but the big prize goes to Deluxe who were actually more energetic and fun than last time. Hope everyone is suitably happy and knackered! Damn close with the weather too, that was some serious rain at times

    There will be people wandering around with wheelie bins full of them from gates opening, just keep an eye out. They will also sell them from the info points which look like little village sections with a huge boomtown logo on them. They're normally £10 and yeah I've never felt robbed by them, it's very nicely done and ad free.

    Question - NOS and entry refusal

    It's a disgrace to the planning process that they weren't asked to explain why such extreme measures were absolutely unquestionably needed at Boomtown while Glastonbury on national TV and livestreaming around the world does things so dramatically differently. I really don't mind when these things are needed but this is just excuse making. As to the NOS they have a specific ban in place - it's still a music festival and people want to listen to the music not wooshing interrupting performances. Not an unfair point.

    Good luck! Sure you won't be distracted, all very professional

    Hah sorry, I'm ridiculously literal just now and feeling far too tired to be considering going to a dance festival - hopefully normal service will resume by Thursday! Gotta be ready for some dancing by Dub Pistols tho sorted the videos from the weekend now, was far too sober at this point That glasto video of the guy on the water bubble was from the bottom of one of the drainage channels down the field I think, but yeah the ground here is dry a.f. and full of cracks. Any muddiness will be extremely short-lived. TBH after the last few weeks a gig or too in cool rain and a poncho sounds brilliant

    Well sometimes it is yes, but they're just chasing their own tails thinking they can stop it if they keep demanding BT pay them more so they can crack down harder. According to those I spoke to the dealer's supplies never see the gates, it just criminalises the amateurs. Proper shitshow. Despite loving Boomtown I think this is probably my last as all this is just so intensely unpleasant. Just waiting for them to confiscate all my vape stuff now effectively pushing me to smoke, at which point I might explode a bit.

    I am a strange kind of excited. Can't we move it back a weekend? Looks dry then. Totally knackered from helping run a little festival last weekend, dancing might be limited! Drunkeness however is assured

    Anti-FOMO is the way to go You really must do a bit of hanging out in Old Town and the Town Centre at least - it's really a show in itself watching the bonkersness of the crowd but there'll be time for that waiting for gigs etc. I am so looking forwards to the crowds

    Not having many things to do in every waking moment is one of the Boomtown Problems - half the really good times come from getting distracted on your way to things It won't take you long to find your way around though, it's not actually that large there's just lots of nooks and crannies and things will change day/night and over the weekend
