Unfortunately, we will no longer be holding Boomtown Chapter One: The Gathering this year and it will now take place from 10th - 14th August 2022.
Introducing Camp Orchid, our brand new ‘Bring Your Own Tent’, pre-bookable campsite for Chapter 12.
After taking on board the feedback from general camping, Skylark, Reserved Camping and Boomtown Springs, we’ve created a brand new, spacious campsite with affordable creature comforts at a close proximity to car parking and the key festival attractions! Wristband price includes; showers, flushing toilets, pamper parlour, as well as a bar, cafe and chill out area.
Named after the rare flowers that bloom on our beautiful South Downs National Park site, this option is perfect for anyone after a bit of extra comfort with their festival camping experience.
