Boomtown Fair 2012 Earlybird Tickets on sale today

The Boomtown architects have plans fully underway for reshaping, renovating and renewing the town for the Fair’s annual pilgrimage.  With expansion plans afoot to take over some of the wasteland on the outskirts of town, 2012 will see the festival grow into its surroundings and squeeze in even more weird and wonderful shenanigans!

Boomtown Fair is unlike any other festival: the legend of Boomtown tells it was once a small but prosperous retreat now overhauled into a land of lawless rebels, with only the town official’s to uphold its former glory. The 2011 event saw the festival sell out for a third time in its three year history with the festival goers brining as much of the entertainment to the show as the organisers.

With so much packed into the small town, last year’s highlights included; majestic headliner Gogol Bordello, late night shenanigans from the Arcadia crew in their custom built roaming ‘Bug’ stage, dance-offs, marriages and body shaking bass round the clock from Bassline Circus and The Lion’s Den!

Roll up, roll up for cheap tickets for the 2012 Fair, more details about next year’s show will be revealed over the next few months so watch this space..
