Latest update from Boomtown Fair
Our world, our environment, our future: Boomtown’s Sustainability Pledge.
Thankfully it’s becoming pretty common knowledge that the world needs us all to start paying attention to the damage humans are doing to it. This year we are ramping up our mission to reduce the impact that we, as a festival, have on our planet.
It’s going to be a totally joint effort between what we put in place and how everyone at the fair works with us to radically change the culture of festival waste, but we have every faith that together we can make significant improvements to protect this incredible environment we are so lucky to have.
Check out our sustainability policy for more details on what we’re doing this year and stay tuned for more details on how you can get involved and help us, help the planet! xx

Use your voice - vote! 📣
An incredible 3 million people registered to vote between the election being called and registration deadline!! That's an amazing number and could make a real difference.
There hasn't been an election more important in many of our lifetimes. It really is THAT important.
Vote for your future, vote for the things that matter, for the NHS, to defend the environment, to invest in our services, to support fellow humans, wildlife and ecosystems... there are very real differences being offered in this election, real differences this country hasn't had the opportunity to see for decades.
It might be a bit cold and soggy out there but our chance to shine has finally come and now is the time to make it count, to make sure you put your cross in the box that matters to you, your family and to future generations. You really, really matter
Vote with your heart. And absolutely, most importantly please, please, please, vote!
Big love, to everyone. x ✨ ...
Some subtle persuasion in your message, there! 😂
Our first past the post voting system means the Conservatives could be re-elected with just 35% of votes. So it’s essential to vote tactically in each constituency so that we do not split the vote. tactical.vote/compare
I'm voting with my ♥️
Michael Stone your favourite festival saying Vote Labour. Guess you won't be going there next year
As if I needed anymore reason to love boomtown 🌹❤
Boomtown CH12: New Beginnings According to your official Boomtown Chat group, those of us who are not voting as instructed by the admins are no longer welcome at Boomtown. Some of the vitriolic abuse I have been witnessing is rather unsettling, and truth be told, if that is the sort of people in charge now, I doubt "people like me" are going to bother attending the festival anymore. It's disgusting, and totally against everything you lead us all to believe Boomtown was about!
Hannah Johnson I'm not gonna force you to vote, but I really think you should
Nice pushy vote towards labour.. always nice to see blind pushing.. don’t only look how bad conservatives were this last 9 years look at labour before them.. neither of the 2 parties are the answer they are both historically terrible.. labour are weaponising the nhs yet they done the most damage this last 20 years.. use your hearts by all means but my god use your heads too that’s where your brains are
As of 10pm tonight is it possible to turn this back into a ‘boomtown’ chat group??
Ive looked at the menu today, im finding it hard to choose between the shit sandwhich and the shit sandwhich, not feeling so hungry now

OECD calculate 3 million hidden unemployed, rate is really 13%. Creation of 1.3m jobs, mainly temporary, self employed, gig economy and ZHC. Only 30k full time work positions created. Close on 50% of workers are self employed, ZHC, or part time precariat. 80% of the 5.3 million self employed live below the poverty line. 35% of self employed only earn £100 a month. 25% cuts for our disabled community. 80% cuts to Mobility allowance.

One million families on council home waiting list. 100,000 increase on the council home waiting list since 2010. 36,000 teachers have left the profession. ..... and we now have MORE BILLIONAIRES IN THE UK THAN EVER BEFORE!!!!
Let's reverse this madness.
Love how Boomtown Fair says vote for your future, vote for the NHS, vote for investment in services, etc. and people lose their minds shouting about 'pushing a Labour agenda' Kind of says it all really...
Out of interest, because there seem to be quite a few Conservative voters on here and I don't really know any. What exactly are you voting for? I know what you're voting against but in actual real terms what are you voting FOR?
Jasmin Mulrooney Vote with your heart
So who thinks this whole comment section is poppycock and that the only party that REALLY matters is the green party?
If we can party in the rain we can Vote in the rain. Boomtown tribe Go Vote !!!
