BoomTown Fair – 11th-14th August 2016
BoomTown festival can only be described as the UKs wildest and most incredible music festivals. It had humble beginnings and was very much part of the underground music festival scene in 2009 but it has now become one of the most imaginative and wonderfully bizarre festivals and is top on our list of favourites.
