Latest update from Boomtown Fair
Respect yourself – Ketamine awareness:
Why are Boomtown so against Ketamine?
Although we don’t condone the use of any drug, and they all have their dangers, we have a long-running campaign directly focused on ketamine awareness and the often unknown dangers of it…
Key issues of ketamine use:
• Users often have no idea how addictive it is, it quickly gets hold and is extremely hard to escape.
• It destroys bladders and causes other mental and physical health issues. More info here: https://drugscience.org.uk/drug-details/ketamine/…
• It can hugely increase anxiety and feelings of isolation.
• Users often completely disconnect with their surroundings and those they are with and therefore can leave themselves vulnerable.
• Mixing ketamine and alcohol can be fatal.

Camping options & added extras have arrived!! ⛺
Treat yourself and book a special stay for your time in the city - we've got options to suit all budgets from reclaimed tents for £10 per person per night in Camplight to sumptuous Indian Shikkars and luxurious Airstreams in Camp Skylark.
And this year, for those of you who want to bring your own tent but indulge in a little more comfort, we've taken on feedback and created a shiny new offering just for you...
Introducing, Camp Orchid! 🌸
Situated right by North Gate, Camp Orchid fuses a spacious campground with excellent facilities like hot showers & sitewide flushing loos, in an excellent location so you can get to either side of the action super swiftly! ...
Are you doing zoo loos again this year. They are not in added extras
No option for just reserved camping like previous years?
Camp Orchid is a great deal for £65. One of the best central campsite locations, hot showers, flushing toilets, and use of Hilltop and Downtown Zooloos. Sign me up!
Any option just for the reserve space for camping going to be available or is this all that available ?
Gigi Dee Amber Shanahan Jessica Madge 👀
No springs then?
Which of the camping options is where reserved was previously?
Hold on... Are you basically saying that Zooloos are not available unless you camp in camp orchid. That is a piss take and you know it
Steve Jones Layla Fae- so they’ve scrapped springs and called it skylark and in place of skylark we have orchid. Wondering if the shower set up will be same as last year or you only have access to zooloos? Thoughts? What we saying? Got funny feels it’ll be jam packed in comparison to last year x
Are you still doing reserved camping or is that now under camp orchid??
Is there a coach drop off point by north gate?
Would like to see it on a map before I buy
Liam Vera Edson Lloyd Stanley Edson do I have a shower
Is there any pre pitched camps on the east side thus year
I LOVE that your using re-claimed tents, such a brilliant idea! xxx
Where are the showers other than this orchid camp?
We’re super proud to announce that we’ve been awarded Bronze on Attitude is Everything’s Charter of Best Practice for our commitment to being accessible to our Deaf and disabled citizens. Woohoo!!
A huge thanks to the wonderful Meadow team for striving to improve access at the festival, in particular Jos Colover who’s dedication and energy over several years built the legacy we are celebrating today and will continue to build upon. Silver award, here we come! 💫
If you’d like to find out more about what accessible facilities we have on offer, check out our access information: www.boomtownfair.co.uk/info/access/
In loving memory of Jos Colover ❤️ ...
Amazing news boomtown as it's my 8th year I have seen the changes well deserved. That said I have filled out 2 access contact request the 1st being 6th November and I have not had any contact from the team
Devastated to here of Jos Colover passing beautiful Lady inside and out. Makes sense now not having a reply to my email... Had the pleasure of staying at the Meddows with Jos and her team a few years ago. She also done loads at Glastonbury! RIP Jos Colover heavens gain 💓 what a legacy....
Oh no. Jos helped me out 3 years running and if it wasn't for her we may not have returned after the first year. That woman was tireless and amazing. Thoughts go to her family
Wiiiiicked! Nuff love from Deaf Rave Collective xx
Such a shame I didn't receive any of the help I was promised and it totally ruined my festival! I was in touch with the help team from january 18 and had confirmed everything but on arrival was repeatedly told I was wrong and ended up crippling myself carrying ny stuff in when I was promised a bus to escourt us from the gate to the camp. Nobody replied to my emails to complain about what happened and it seemed like the only answer to anything was " volunteers dont know everything" when your aiming for an award to have your gate steward laugh in my face when I handed him printed out emails from the help team and said he doesn't know why they told me i could get help there simply isnt any. Only when I collapsed in a heap on the floor while waiting for him to radio people was I offered a chair and even then the guy was more interested in people not waiting in the 20ft gap between gates than he was in helping 2 young girls on there own and in need of help.

What a lovely woman she made my 1st ever festival experience possible and enjoyable!! I was sad when i found out what had happened but this is a positive reward for all her hard work!! Big love to you all for all your still doing!! ❤️
LayDee LauRah Lorna Blackmore look on the back of her wheelchair it's the gecko spoon lady!! ❤️❤️
So sad to read here that Jo's has passed away.. She was way beyond helpful for my first 2 Boomtown experiences in the Meadow camping. She was so lovely 💖 even gave her personal mobile number to me before the festival in case we had any difficulties on our way in.. I have every confidence that the team will continue to provide awesome help tgat would make her proud 💖 xx
