Today we should be throwing open the gates of our magical city, bursting to the brim with exquisite new wonders for you all to explore
We hope the Summer of 2021 is treating you well so far! Although things have got off to a bit of a bumpy start, there is still time for Summer to be saved and those dreams of reuniting in fields filled with joy, friends and freedom to be realised!
With that in mind… Since we postponed Boomtown, due to the huge risk involved in running an event to that scale with the continued unknowns of COVID legislation, we have been busy plotting and planning a completely separate, brand new and one-off event; Boom Village! Designed to be at a more manageable size with significantly reduced risks, this family-friendly, sustainability focussed, smaller scale festival will take place at the Matterley Estate over 12th - 15th August 2021… and you’re invited!
The initial release of tickets went out to those in the local community and long-standing crew to ensure we could manage the expectations around the limited capacity. However, since the extension to stage 3 of the Government roadmap and the hopes and promises of stage 4 from 19th July, we are now able to open up the remaining few thousand tickets and are coming first to those of you who’ve been on this Boomtown journey with us over recent years.
Dearest Citizen, here is your official invitation to Boom Village 2021!
R.S.V.P here to receive a direct ticket link and a reminder on Monday as well as all the other Boom Village news you need to know! Please note that spaces are not guaranteed and tickets are extremely limited.
What is Boom Village?
For four magical August days and nights, come and explore our home at the Matterley Estate in the South Downs National Park as you’ve never seen it before! Experience the curiosities of Boomtown’s handcrafted Oldtown district with the new, vibrant and colourful central Village Square... Dance on the sandy floors of our iconic sun-soaked Forest Parties, and rest and rejuvenate in the Forgotten Valley; a beautiful space filled with craft, wellness and family entertainment.
Lose yourself in an intimate world flooded with hundreds of musicians, charismatic walkabout characters, powerful parades, engaging theatre and creativity at every turn. All of this will of course be underpinned by a soundtrack fitting for a summer of freedom we’ve all been dreaming of, and have deserved for so long!
Whilst we won’t be releasing a lineup before the show, our trusted and genius music team have been busy handpicking the perfect lineups to dance and stomp your way through our new world. Expect styles of underground electronic music as well as grassroots live bands that we all know and love from the hidden gems and stalwart small and medium stages of Boomtown.
Explore the areas, stages, musical styles and extra surprises you can expect from Boom Village on our What's On pages.
