The 'Psychedelic Gatherings' have been revealed for Boomtown Fair 2018 - Chapter 10 - at Matterley Estate, nr. Winchester, in Hampshire from Thursday 9th until Sunday 12th August 2018, bringing the Trance, Techno, Hi-Tech and Psycore communities together across three psychedelic venues.

Curated by Psy promoters IllumiNaughty, Tribe of Frog and Hitechnicians, Boomtown's sandy forest dancefloors combine a range of Psy from huge international artists to grassroots underground, representing the very best in the Psychedelic universe from PsyDub to Psytrance to PsyCore. 

On Psychedelic Forest stage this year are four international headliners; Shpongle who will be performing live in the form of Simon Posford, Raja Ram and Michelle Adamson, alongside Bliss, GMS, and Freedom Fighters. Sunday will see the Pantheon Techno Takeover which includes headliners Charlotte De Witte with her uncompromising techno sets, Enrico Sangiuliano and Extrawelt.

Tribe of Frog will be back again with psytrance and progressive with the likes of Bom Shanka Music and 24/7 Records hosting sessions on the open air stage, and Sinerider, Psymmetrix, Dirty Saffi and Earthling, while Hitechnicians will embrace the dark arts of  the deepest underground experimental sound of Hi-tech and Psycore. Artists include Ugly Ducky, Apollyon, Pastor John and Astral Labyrinth.
