Prophets of Rage and UB40 were both rumoured to appear.

Last year, Beans on Toast concluded his regular Sunday afternoon set at The Old Mines by confirming he’d be back for Chapter 11. The folk singer features on the line-up poster revealed today.

Newport rap group Goldie Lookin Chain will return to the Fair. They last played at Boomtown back in 2015.

Lauryn Hill was rumoured to appear at Glastonbury this summer when Emily Eavis shared a photo of her performing on Instagram back in December.

Fellow headliners The Streets were also rumoured for Glasto’ when frontman Mike Skinner let slip he’ll be playing a DJ set at festival’s Rum Shack.

A recent Boomtown News bulletin revealed that eight of Boomtown’s main stages will be ‘radically’ upgraded ahead of Chapter 11. The sound experience across all outdoor stages will be overhauled by the first-ever Boomtown Radical Sound Design Group.

Organisers revealed the line-up for Boomtown’s all-new techno and electronic district, Area 404, before Christmas.

Boomtown Fair Chapter 11: A Radical City will take place from 7th to 12th August on the Matterley Estate. Initial ticket sales broke festival records back in October.

Tickets remain available on the official Boomtown Fair website.
