2019 Lineup Details

Boomtown, one of the UKs largest independent music and theatre festival, is delighted to announce the launch of its new techno and electronic district – AREA 404.

A distinctively industrial, post-apocalyptic and expansive district, AREA 404 will be dedicated to the raw sounds within the electronic music spectrum and has invited Drumcode and Bugged Out to host the stage for Friday and Sunday, respectively, with confirmed headliners including techno legends Carl Cox, Four Tet and Amelie Lens.

But this is by no means it. With two new street venues Acid Leak and Fallout Disco waiting to be announced, and the return of SP23 (Spiral Tribe) Street Rave with the best and boldest underground sound system, there’s so much more to come…..

AREA 404 is the latest progressive to arise from the deeply original and idiosyncratic vision of Boomtown’s creators, and added to 14 distinctly themed areas, hosting 27 main stages and 80 smaller street venues. The latest edition to the Fair is poised to instil excitement and eagerness within the electronic music community.
