Boomtown Fair organisers have revealed when tickets for next year’s festival, dubbed ‘Chapter 12: New Beginnings’, will go on general sale – and when the headliners will be announced.

Ticket sales will start at 7pm on Wednesday 6th November. We don’t know how much tickets will cost yet, but in previous years the cheapest ‘tier 1’ tickets have sold out in minutes.

The full line-up, including headliners, will then be released in February 2020. ‘Boomtown Fair Chapter 12: New Beginnings’ will take place from Wednesday 12th to Sunday 16th August 2020.

The Times calls Boomtown: “A surreal mash-up of Blade RunnerMad Max and Westworld, Boomtown is as much giant immersive art installation as a rock festival.”

In addition to the after-movie above, other Chapter 11 highlights released by Boomtown include The Streets and Chase & Status.

After downing a can of Guinness handed to him from the crowd and climbing into one of the waterfalls, Mike finished the set with ‘Fit But You Know It’ which Boomtown have also shared a video of:

Earlier today, Houghton Festival organisers confirmed the event will return in 2020 after severe weather forced it’s cancellation back in August. Having clashed with Boomtown in recent years, the festivals are on different weekends in 2020 with the Gottwood-curated Houghton taking place from 6th to 9th August. (same goes for Bloodstock!)

Boomtown Halloween, the launch of Boomtown’s new 3,500-capacity indoor events area, was originally set to take place on Saturday 2nd November. Three more dates were added, on Friday 1st, Friday 8th and Saturday 9th November, after tickets for the original sold out in 13 minutes. Tickets for all four dates have now sold out.
