Boomtown Fair news: So many people from all over the world make the journey to Boomtown on their own

Latest update from Boomtown Fair

So many people from all over the world make the journey to Boomtown on their own every year, but they're not on their own for long… Solo Camp is always there to welcome them! This is its story… ๐Ÿ“š

One of our citizens, Bronte, started going to festivals on her own back in 2006… she found people on online discussion groups who were in the same boat and soon gathered them together! They started having meet-ups and this snowballed into a huge movement at other festivals across the country…

When she started coming to Boomtown in 2015 she found people on groups selling their tickets because friends had let them down… she was having none of that so she started a group and the Boomtown Solo Camp began!!

It's now at 214 members and growing every single day with its own dedicated campsite on the map. She also met her soon to be husband doing the group and they are getting married before the festival this year… โค๏ธ

Our community is amazing!!! โค๏ธ ๐ŸŒŽ

Use your voice - vote! ๐Ÿ“ฃ

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 โœจ

Some subtle persuasion in your message, there! ๐Ÿ˜‚

๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน

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 ♥๏ธ

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 ๐ŸŒนโค

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

Ignore the bluff, the lies, the spin, the opinion and the outright ridiculous and stick to the facts. This is where we are. Do we let it continue? 2010-2019, in case you missed it... 1,000 sure start centres closed. 780 libraries closed. 700 football pitches closed. Food bank use up 2,400%. Homelessness up 1,000%. Rough sleeping up 1,200% Bedroom tax caused mass evictions. Evictions are running at record highs. 35% of U.K. kids live in poverty. Student fees up 300%. Student debt has risen 150%. Eradication of EMA (education maintenance allowance). National debt has risen from £850billion to £2.25trillion. Emergency Brexit stimulus from BoE in June 2016 of £175b. Brexit related fall in national revenue £500b. GDP fallen to -0.1%. GBP fallen by circa 15% versus EUR and USD. Manufacturing in recession. Construction in recession. Services close to recession. 25-30% cuts to all govt departments. 25-30% cuts to all councils, mainly centred on Labour councils. Half of councils facing effective bankruptcy. 185k extra deaths attached to the political ideology of austerity. 25,000 less police. 20,000 less prison officers. 10,000 less border officials. 10,000 less firefighters. 10,000 less medical professionals. 25,000 less bed spaces for mental illness. 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. Closing Remploy. 40% of working households have practically no savings. 70% of households have less than 10k savings. 60% of households can only survive 2 months without a wage. Household debt reaches new peak, despite emergency base rates. Increase of 50% in hate crimes. Increase of knife crime by 150% to 22,000 per year. Increase in teenage suicide by 70%. Suicide up 12% in the year 2018. Self harm among young women up 70%. Life expectancy down 3 years. NHS satisfaction level at lowest recorded rate. 200k social homes lost since 2010. Zero starter homes built, despite Tory flagship programme. Council home building down 90%. 200k social homes lost since 2010. 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...

labour and boomtown are hand in hand with Stalin.

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?
