One of eight districts in BoomTown Fair, May-Fair Avenue hosts Electro-Swing, Swing and Vintage Remix across its fully interactive and immaculately themed venues including The Ballroom and The Bandstand. Top of the bill for May-Fair are Parisian electro-swing superstarsCaravan Palace, the pioneer of chap-hop Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer, mash-up DJ collective Dutty Moonshine big band who lace bass heavy sets together with a vintage sound and many more.
On top of the overarching narrative to the event, each district has its own backstory and May-Fair’s involves a socially scheming husband and wife, Mr and Mrs Fitz-Sloane who pledged to uphold the area’s exclusivity by keeping out the riff-raff and ensuring that only the most well-to-do attend their famed Electro-Swing soirées! But things in BoomTown are never as they seem and as citizens step inside these glitzy façades the Fitz-Sloane’s true colours will be revealed…
