10 Years of Music Culture

Since we began, live music and immersive theatre have been at the forefront of what we do - using music and creativity as a way to expand minds and encourage individuality within the safety of our city walls and beyond.

As we approach Chapter 10 we're looking back at where we started at Chapter 1 with immersive theatre from the Invisible Circus two live music stages - Town Centre and Lion's Den - it is truly humbling.

In the Chapters that followed we've had the pleasure of working with close to two hundred independant crews who have joined us in creating this community and the fantastic beast that is Boomtown.

It is a privilege to be able to evolve each year and bring our favourite musicians from around the world to our pop up city.
