Boomtown Fair organisers have revealed Chapter 12: New Beginnings will take place from Wednesday 12th to Sunday 16th August 2020 as the official Facebook event was shared on social media.

The title ‘New Beginnings’ was revealed just before midnight on Sunday during Chapter 11’s closing ceremony. Next year’s festival will see a capacity increase by 11,000 to 76,999 people after an increased licence was approved earlier this month.

Boomtown haven’t yet revealed when tickets will go on sale, but the event description encourages would-be citizens to subscribe to email updates to find out first. Last year, Boomtown tickets went on sale on November 1st.

Boomtown organisers reported a 70 per cent reduction in campsite waste after this year’s festival, the result of efforts including the ‘Take Your Tent Home‘ campaign and a new zero-waste campsite.

Boomtown revealed in this year’s programme their new warehouse venue at their Bristol HQ will host ‘Boomtown Halloween’ on Saturday 2nd November.

Festival co-founder Chris Rutherford told the Bristol Post: “The licence we’ve submitted is with the idea of running a series of themed Boomtown theatrical events in our warehouse, as well as offering Bristol a new venue space for general hire for fellow promoters… we’re pretty excited about this new project. Definitely watch this space!”

The venue is licenced for a 3,500 capacity and up to 24 events each year.
