What strange times we are living in… ❤️
When we dreamt up the ‘State of Emergency’ show for 2020 we could never have predicted we’d be living it in quite such a realistic way, and we want to start by sending our sincerest love and thoughts to absolutely everyone in these really uncertain times. It’s a huge task to navigate through, and for all those working tirelessly on the front line, we stand in absolute awe and solidarity with you all.
Here is our COVID-19 update as of 26th March 2020:
Whilst we are all living in an ever evolving situation with daily updates from the government drip feeding information and actions out, the world does feel somewhat flipped on its head. There are no clear or definite pathways to be able to see exactly where we’ll be in 2 weeks time, let alone by August...
However, since we are scheduled for the end of summer and that the peak is still expected through May and June; as per our previous statement, we are still working towards being able to bring us all together for an almighty celebration come August, should the situation allow, and of course, we get the all clear for mass gatherings by then.
Although this entire global situation is rife with uncertainty, one thing we do know, is that the world, and our events industry, will look very different to how it did a few weeks ago… This means we are going to take immediate and decisive action to pre-empt the far reaching knock on effect of this, to do our best to protect the event for our ticket holders, crew, contractors and the wider festival and events industry as a whole.
As a core team with decades of event experience between us, we’ve been scrutinising all the moving parts that are included in producing such a complex show as ours and consulting with external advisers on the best way forward. After taking all things into consideration we are working towards Boomtown Chapter 12 being a more intimate experience, one that caters for a smaller number of citizens than we have grown to in recent years...
What does this mean:
Imagine a Boomtown world… A carefully crafted world more intimate than before. Continuing to house spectacular stages with jaw dropping designs and handcrafted street sets to lose yourself in. Imagine epic circus shows fused with all the musical entertainers, performance makers and headliner artists who have already been released, imagine a new world bursting with community, comradery and creativity, yet all within a shorter walking distance.
This is the world we are now building, and it’s immensely exciting! We’re working round the clock on everything that is within our power to bring this to life for us all in August. We will release full details about the reworked plans as and when it is appropriate over the coming months.
We also know many of you will be wondering about postponement. We would be naive to not also be planning for this and can confirm that all current ticket holders’ tickets will be valid for the next instalment of Boomtown, whenever that may be, if it comes to that..
For now, we will continue to focus on positivity, community and proactive things to help us all find a way through what the next few weeks hold for us. Be sure to check in on our social channels for regular updates.
As always, please look after yourselves, check in on the vulnerable, care for your neighbours, and keep your inner lights shining bright. We’ll be back with more updates soon.
If you would like any further information then please follow our COVID-19 specific updates on our website.

"Every district is created with such effort, detail & over the top creativity that it rivals Disneyland and Universal Studios..."
Ever wanted to to get the lowdown on the full storyline as it's unfolded since Chapter One? This is an incredible watch from Night Mind's channel, taking you through the intricacies of the narrative with some amazing throwbacks to earlier chapters. 📚
Skip to 3 minutes to take a deep dive into Chapters past & see if you can spot yourself in old footage...! 🍿

Really hoping this goes ahead!!!!! Still need to get tickets. Will there be more acts added to the lineup?

I’m trying to stay positive but all is quite bleak right now. Right now I’m more concerned for people that are paying instalments and have just lost their jobs and or put on ssp/waiting for utc. Will there be something put in place where they can defer the next payment until they have some financial clarity as the next payment is vast approaching. Much love ❤️

For everyone at home at the moment, our bookers have got you covered with some phenomenal playlists to let some steam off to...🎶
For all the HEAD BANGERS... 🤘
Kaptin's got you with this heavy selection...
For all the DISCO DANCERS... 🕺
James has put together this Metropolis playlist!
Which one are you!? If you're getting down in the kitchen or raving in your bedroom do send us a snap or a video in the comments we'd love to see! ❤️ ...
disco disco 🎶 💃
That Metropolis playlist needs some fleshing out please! Anyone wanna throw some recommendations below? I'll start Sophie Lloyd - Calling out (feat Dames Brown)
Just please don’t cancel
Everytime you guys pop up in my feed, I'm just praying it's not a cancellation post 😓🙏

Boomtown will not happen this year I put money onit
Boomtown what do we do about our split payment tickets? It’s quite clear you will have to cancel now but so unsure whether to keep paying
It has to be canceled, surely? The organisers will have to be working in groups to build the festival over the coming months and even if the UK does seem safe by August, it's only going to take one person at the festival unknowingly to be carrying the virus.

In light of everything that is going on around the world, we want to use this space to spread some much-needed positivity far and wide over the next couple of weeks!
An update from HQ we're all working incredibly hard behind the scenes (from home now, not HQ!) to bring you the most incredible show for Chapter 12. But for those of you self-isolating, working from home, and everyone still heading out to work who need a distracting, relaxing end to a hard day out in the world, we'll be sharing tips for stress relief, advice for making a difference in your local communities, throwback mixes & sets, and loads more...
But this isn't just about what we want to see, we'd love to hear from you, our amazing community on what you'd like to explore together how we can help each other through these difficult times before we all come together again for one almighty celebration in August.
Physical distancing, not social distancing ❤ ...

Sending love.. Whatever happens I think we will all be behind you as much as we can. It's not anyone's fault. It there is anything we can do as a community please let us know.. we have plenty of people in Boomtown Storyline and Chat.

❤ you guys
Thanks Boomtown fair for keeping us up to date as much as is humanly possible right now. We’re all making it up as we go along right now xx
If yr at home try and have a structure to yr day, watch each other’s watch parties and do some kitchen dancing . put a bit of this in your day it will ground you and keep u stronger physically and mentally. You don’t have to be good at yoga to do this,she’s great. 💕 yogawithadriene.com/dedicate-a-30-day-yoga-journey/
Mixed thoughts about this. On one hand, the announcements were something to look forward to when things are a bit shit. But at the same time, I think everyone’s acutely aware that nothing is guaranteed to go ahead this year, so... yeah. 😞
Please give my page a like/follow... Had to cancel a self promoted event for the Samaritans Acid house/techno bangs to aid mental health and well being ❤️
Can’t wait for a big celebration when this blows over. Big love boomtown crew ❤️
Mathilde Le Neindre Huynh Alexandre Alves Bassala Fatianoff Fey Fey tellement wholesome ce festival
Nows a great time to be growing seeds and planting vegetables !
I'm thinking all festivals will get blanket ban by 1stMay.Cant see what else can be done, the science says this will peak June/August, what a bastard😕
Hey keep up the good work regardless of what's happening we're keeping our ticket payments and won't be cancelling, we all need to stick together.
Thanks Boomtown your ace We’ve got a great thread going on Boomtown chat with lots of great ideas to help, an incredible thread of Mixes pinned to the top closely following AAA Badboy Spotify 🌟 . My mates are setting up Skype DJ parties, yoga sessions, language skills swap, creative sessions and that all with epic watch lists sending massive love and can’t wait for August let’s all go to Winchester have a pint and wait for this all blow over ❤️
Thank you for something to look forward to ☺️ “Physical distancing, not social distancing ❤”
