Values

Creativity, Connection, and Celebration, are at the heart of everything we do. And we believe it's all about respect—for yourself, each other, and our beautiful planet.

Respect yourself

In a world that can make us doubt our own worth, we want to provide a space for self empowerment, freedom of expression and most importantly self care.

Respect Each Other 

In a world that is deeply scarred by the open wounds of racism and prejudice, we want people of all backgrounds, beliefs, ages, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities and races to know that you belong and we strive to keep you safe in our city.

Respect The Planet

In a world that is burning, we call on our collective humanity to come together to find solutions and care for nature, as she cares for us.

Creativity 

In a world where conformity is valued over creativity, we want to provide a platform that nurtures artistic freedom and pushes the boundaries of creative expression.

Celebration

In a world that can so often feel overloaded, we want to celebrate the very best this beautiful planet and all humanity cxan achieve in one almighty party where everyone is welcome. 

Connection

In a world where digital connection so often replaces physical connection, we cherish the depth of connection that comes from the gathering of humans

Giving Back

Our Non-Profit Partners

We believe that when we come together, we accomplish great things. We’re passionate about making a difference and work with a number of nonprofits and social enterprises, who inspire kindness, not competition, towards people and the planet.

CLIMATE ACTION

TreeSisters

Taking global action to restore the Earth’s forests, TreeSisters has been our partner since 2019. They take direct climate action through ethical reforestation and renaturing. Through our work together we are protecting and restoring species and habitats and are part of a growing network that has so far funded planting of over 27 million trees.

CLIMATE ACTION

South Downs National Park (SDNP)

Boomtown is built on borrowed land. We are committed to supporting the SDNP to achieve its two core objectives:

1. Conserve and enhance the park’s natural beauty, wildlife, and cultural heritage.

2. Promote opportunities for the understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the National Park by the public.

Over 55% of you have told us you will be visiting the South Downs National Park as a result of attending Boomtown. This is epic news and we urge you to take care of this precious natural resource, and make sure the only footprints we all leave are on the dancefloor.

CLIMATE ACTION

Ecolibrium

Ecolibrium started life in 2015 as ‘Energy Revolution,’ a festival industry response to COP21 and research shows that travel typically causes up to 80% of a festival's carbon emissions. As a founding festival member, Boomtown continues this important work by keeping climate action and low-carbon travel at the heart of our culture.

Mental Health

Tonic Music for Mental Health

Tonic are on a mission to deliver good mental health and recovery through music. They support people experiencing mental health issues via mental health and suicide prevention training, peer support groups, music workshops, psycho-eductional workshops, resources counselling and advice. All proceeds from our Chapter EP’s are donated to Tonic Music for Mental Health. We also work with them during our live show where they provide a supportive space in our one of our campsite villages for talking and sharing.

Drug Awareness

The Loop

The Loop provide information and advice on drug-related risks, aiming to prevent misuse and educate about potential dangers. They are campaigning hard to regain the ability to provid anonymous drug testing facilities at festivals. We partner year round with The Loop to support their incredible work.

Violence Against Women, Girls and other Vulnerable People

Safer Spaces Now

Safer Spaces Now is the next step to creating equality and safety for all at festivals and events through education, training and providing vital, immediate and specialist support.

They work to prevent and address harassment, discrimination, and violence by providing trained staff and volunteers who promote respectful behaviour using the five D’s of active bystanders. Safer Spaces Now offers support and resources for anyone who feels unsafe or violated during the event. We are passionate about their important work.
