Boomtown Fair social media channels have advised “regularly scheduled programming” will be interrupted as “a huge announcement” is coming at 1pm tomorrow.
District line-ups are currently being released at 1pm on Tuesdays and Fridays after the main announcement of over 200 artists last month. Recent announcements include Area 404, the brand new Forgotten Valley, Tangled Roots and Hidden Woods.
The announcement is likely to be linked to Boomtown’s storyline or immersive maze: “a city-wide quest that propels its players deep into the rabbit hole whilst firmly making them a key part in the Boomtown narrative”.
To keep up with the maze, join the Boomtown Storyline Facebook group or subscribe to the Lost in the Maze podcast. Similarities between aspects of the Boomtown districts or storyline and a board game supposedly released in the 1990’s have been summarised in a recent blog post.
Boomtown Fair Chapter 12: New Beginnings will take place from Wednesday 12th to Sunday 16th August 2020 at the Matterley Estate near Winchester. Wu-Tang Clan, Underworld, Kano and Damian Marley all feature on this year’s line-up. Boomtown are also aiming to plant one million trees this year and have already raised over £20,000 on a crowdfunder set up to do this.
