    Looks exciting and like it might be rather different! They never really got the Trenchtown thing together

    https://ww2.theticketsellers.co.uk/boomtown-springs-2018-10046532/ So who's doing Boomtown Springs? I'm curious as heck but can't justify it :/

    Yes there's load of other camping, those are just the specific reserved/family areas. No idea what'll be happening with the camping this year as they've removed the most popular area, but in general there's not a lot of flat ground so there'll be some rush for that

    If you fancy trying this at Boomtown can you let me know when you arrive at the gate so I can watch for shits and giggles?

    Not really no. Seeing the number of people already suffering Friday morning is absolute comedy

    I strongly recommend the reviews here for a taste of the wider picture - Sean has managed to do a lot more than I've ever been with it enough to accomplish http://www.efestivals.co.uk/festivals/boomtown/2014/review-overview.shtml http://www.efestivals.co.uk/festivals/boomtown/2015/review-overview.shtml http://www.efestivals.co.uk/festivals/boomtown/2017/review.shtml But it's all just theory until you see the takeover of the town hall by the rebels descend into chaos when your mate turns up as the premier citizen looking hugely the worse for wear before lobbing a spray-cream pie into the face of the rebel leader off-script causing all hell to break loose and everyone to run screaming from an assault of water guns and police whistles - it's a trial by fire and I can't wait.

    It's still a music festival with 100+ stages with all sorts of non-mainstream acts and music styles but yes it all runs around the city which is a mass of setpieces and literal streets. There is a storyline and you can join in but you don't have to - it exists both as the big thread of quest which might have several routes to complete and at a smaller scale with bits of story playing out all over. I've seen bank robberies in mayfair, pirate heists of gold from the wild west, cyborg takeovers downtown, boomtown police crackdowns in main street to puppet shows and street theatre inside street theatre playing out the whole boomtown story in miniature inside boomtown in Old town. There's not been a year where I've not ended up in stitches of laughter gasping for breath at the madness of it all. Only full weekend tickets apart from those for locals. It's an urban75 picture but this always summed up a side of boomtown for me - look at how much fun this punter's having! then there's this: There's nothing like it. Nobody will believe the stories. It makes Glastonbury look like er... what it is.

    Yeah I'd guessed mid thirties. Oh well good work - keep it up

    Would it be rude to ask how old you are?

    This astonished me too.

    It's a different beast, but massively more exciting. It's fun to go home and see the familiar faces, but the wild reunion houseparty around your best mate's is the real highlight. It's managed to recapture that first "HOLY F*CK" moment of the original Shangri-La every year, pretty much every district.

    The reviews on here are a great read. I was wedded to Glasto and thought nothing could beat it, then I went to Boomtown.

    A bit of an aside - has anyone looked at their website lately? Lots is changing. Wild West has become Copper County (I suspect a mining rather than proximity of PoPoHQ reference) Mayfair is Paradise Heights Chinatown is Metropolis
