Well, wow... We're truly feeling the love after you shared your stories for our Valentine's day competition! 💕

Not just incredible stories of how people met their soulmates but stories of kindness from strangers, parental love, SO MANY festival proposals and glorious tales of people learning to love themselves!

Spreading the message of respect and love is at the heart of why we do what we do and for so many stories of human kindness radiating out so far and wide, really is humbling to our very core, and pretty emotional to read! Thank you all so, so much for sharing! 💓

The winner, with a resounding 379 likes and counting, are the adorable Laura and Billy who met at the festival two years ago and went off travelling the world together only 6 weeks later! A pair of Chapter 12 tickets with Camp Orchid upgrades are coming for you... 🎫

We also had to award another bonus prize for the mind-blowing tale of Sophie Louise and how she met her cousin - we absolutely had to give you guys tickets to Chapter 12 as well!

If you need a pick me up this Wednesday we’ve pulled together just a few of the hundreds of tales for you to read through here…

Today is #RandomActOfKindnessDay, and it feels like it couldn't be better timed.
Even though we think we should show kindness every day, let's make sure we all do something kind for someone today and spread the love... 💕

I have known my boyfriend for a long long time, friends for ages and finally together! we had only recently got together before ch11 and his favourite band was playing (the streets) they were playing blinded by the lights he was holding my waist and we were singing together and dancing and it was so romantic I can’t listen to that song without welling up now! One of my happiest memories ❤️

Blaize is that you again? 🤣

I'm just looking forward to meet my soul mate at chapter 12 ❤️

Boomtown hearts <3

Fatty Harris we both went to Boomtown together, spent our time together and although we were already together it helped out with a big part of our relationship enjoying the moments and the music ❤ I would love to experience that all again.

Been to Boomtown with my better half for a few years now and we fell in love with the festival the moment we stepped foot onto the site, we loved it so much that during our third year we were about to watch Toots and the Maytals (one of our favourite acts) when I decided to pop the question and get on one knee..... She said yes and made the rest of that year's festival even more magical. To say Boomtown has a special place in our hearts would be an understatement 💕

does it count if I say I fell in love with being the hype man for a slaves set, didn't fall in love with crowdsurfing though, harder than it looks (help me out I need to get to ch12)

Me and Ash Aukland made a friend for life at Boomtown 2015. We were just stumbling home after a fun night when we saw a gal on her own, and went to see if she was alright. anyway 8 hours later, many 'silly' chats later and i will never forget the fun. me and ash tell this story to everyone cos we've got no other mates 👍 #makefriendsatboomtown Emily Clara Aukland Izzi Daly Edward Blanchard Bay Jemima

Joint Stag and Hen do Boomtown 2016, got married two weeks later. Best month of our lives (so far). We got burnt that weekend and so did our mates car.

100% learnt to love myself at boomtown 💗💗💗

I met my other half at Boomtown in 2016! My friend had two residential Sunday tickets and asked if I wanted to join her, I had wanted to get a ticket for the whole thing but couldn't afford it. It was my first time going. She said we were meeting a group of her friends. I remember walking up to the groups tents and seeing my future boyfriend leaning back against his colourful tipi tent with his mate.... I'm sure it had been a tiring 3 days! The rest is history after that! It was like we had known each other in a previous life or had always been friends. We didn't leave each others side all night. I had the best time, and we have been back every year since. It's our anniversary! All thanks to pure fate at Boomtown. Otherwise we probably would've never met. Thank you Boomtown, it was meant to be 🧡💛❤️ Brendan Dumper

Luke Bradley Puzzar me n u started talking after you commented on this photo from Boomtown 2017 because you were jelly of mine and Ella 's spot at Skindred ❤️

Me and Darryl Escott met at Boomtown. I asked him if the D on his cap stood for 'dickhead' 3 years later we're still going to boomtown, still going strong and the rest is history. Love you dickhead! ❤️

I met a girl from derby (Georgia) at Relic stage last year while shy fx was playing, moments before the stage was shut and everyone evacuated, we spent the rest of the festival together and took what you could say “a liking towards one another!” We took each other’s numbers at the end and said we’d def meet up! 2 weeks later we became an official couple and moved in together in Bristol, we now have many plans for the future and of course one is to come back to where it all began at boomtown this year 👌🏻 happy Valentine’s Day x

I was PROPOSED to under Arcadia in 2014 when the choon dropped and the fire singed my mustachio 🤯🖤 I SAID YES. but then we broke up 👌😍

Eliza Ruby Bentley we defo got some stories!! Lol

After a long time coming meeting at our first festival season in 2013, working for a glamping company he finally won me over at boomtown 2014 with a kiss. Them 2015 with a ‘cuddle’... 2016 was our first proper year together and have been ever since...we got our own hip hop tatz as of today. PS I CANT WAIT FOR THE WU and/or BOOMTOWN

Imma purpose to my future wife there this year and I'm very nervous to do so 🙂

Brilliant. Every. Single. Time.

Jack Corby dem luvved up seshs babe x

I fell in love with my now 9 year old son at boom town 2010. Both boom town and sonny have grown quite a lot! That year I was 12 weeks pregnant with my surprise baby and very sober. I had an early night every night and it was during those evenings I realised I was gonna be a mum and that I would do anything for my kids.....even staying in and watching fantastic Mr fox on a laptop in a tent whilst all my mates were raving. We had our tent right next door to the mystic swing so I listened to that a lot and fell in love with my baby. I have loads of memories of 2010 boom town due to the enforced sobriety, which makes it even better now I'm an old lady 🙂 Last comptition I entered was to design a Lego space station and I didn't win....

Why in gods name is this selfish attitude being praised? These festivals are not for children! You re making a statement that your fun trumps your childs well being nothing else. Father of the year material for sure. Its what gradparents are for dummy. 🤦‍♂️

Boomtown make so much effort to create an amazing area for families in Whistler’s Green and Kids town and why shouldn’t people raise their children with the festival ethos of be kind, respect each other and the environment around you and learn some amazing skills at the various, workshops provided.

People have been taking kids to festivals for years and those children will probably take their children too. It’s not anything new.

The main reason we don’t take ours is because it’s a very rare weekend where we get to let our hair down and enjoy ourselves.

So glad this little one enjoyed their festival experience.. That smile says it all.

Oh wow. I know plenty of kids bought up around festivals. All are amazingly grown up clued up kids/adults now. Since when has removing your kids from everywhere they may learn about different aspects of life become a good thing. There is enough other bits of festival that parents and kids can have a safe and amazing time. Yes there’s bad parenting but if I look out my bedroom window I can see worse patenting daily. Kids love festival’s and it’s our choice whether they go or not becusee we chose to keep them safe. If you don’t wanna take your kids fine. But fuck off telling us how we bring up our kids. Wanna have a opinion on breastfeeding too cus your about a step away from that.
