Will you lot please STOP tagging my username to posts in this thread* as it inevitably leads to me coming her to respond politely (as one should), thus serving only to remind me that I'm not going to Boomtown in 2019! Which is a bit rubbish.

:(

I was SOOOOOO bored at Pagoda Plaza waiting for SMD (who I had in firm pencil as a set to see...their DJ set at Latitude 2017 was incredible...) and the sound was so poor, that I sacked the monkeys off and went to Tribe of Frog for my second night in a row of stellar psytrance. And that's in the Boomtown area with the. best. sound. And that's not an opinion. It is FACT!

And that's such a bummer @stu_kent about Enrico...Charlotte was pretty good, Enrico was unbelievable. About as good a festival-ending set as you could imagine (I'm not trying to be an arse...!).

:)

You should have stuck around for SMD, the sound levels noticeable went up for their set.  I think they could push it up at Pagoda because other stages had finished so total sound out from the site didn't breach the allowed levels.

Was gutted about Enrico but I wanted all our group to stay together on the last night and as I'd seem Enrico at Junction 2 in June I was (relatively) happy to see Charlotte and then pop off to Sector 6 for Andy C which was also pretty good I must say.

Loved that Boomtown was stronger for the techno this year... that forest is perfect for it.  More of that next year please!  A Drumcode takeover would be sweet.

Would they be too big for town centre? After Cypress Hill doing Lion's Den last year I could see them doing the same slot.

They'd be a great booking though.

Possibly. 2018 was my first Boomtown... I just assumed that Rock was more for the Town Centre than Lions Den, but - you are probably right.

From those dates, they must be in with a shout & if Cypress Hill enjoyed the fest in 2017, they will be up for it.

I'll be a bit surprised if they are not announced.

Looking at those tour dates, and seeing how they fall with Boomtown has made me think this is a real possibility. Also, with the fact they have the same booking agents as Limp Bizkit too....

N.B - I have no info on this, it's purely my own guess work!

Will try and do some digging :ph34r:

Plus, 2 members are in Cypress Hill, who played in 2017....  makes absolute sense to me.

Yep today.

Think it'll be the announcement of the new House and Techno stage, but not sure if it'll mention the line up or stage it's replacing.

So the announcement was that we have 8 days left until the next announcement :lol: 

Announcement of the announcement! 🤣

So much for "all revealed 6th December". Nevermind, I can wait another 8 days...

As soneone who knows a few promoters, Im guessing they were expecting to be able to announce some acts & now can't for some reason. Probably to help sales somewhere else?

Given POR were Charing upwards of £60 for their Brixton gig a year or so ago I'd imagine they'd need to be a Lions Den headliner for budget purposes as much as anything.

Part 1: How quickly does Boomtown sell out? I won't be able to purchase tickets until January if I decide to go.

Part 2: Do I choose the Green Man Festival or Boomtown? Truth is I will likely choose one this year and the other next. I like that I can choose tickets, coach transportation and accommodation all in one go for Boomtown.
