Boomtown Fair 2014
The Matterley Bowl, Alresford

This Festival has not been reviewed yet Be the first to write one!

Boomtown Fair rolls into town, it's an expansive collaboration of music, entertainment, activities, art & tradition. The legend of Boomtown tells it was once a small but prosperous retreat now changed into a land of lawless rebels while town officials work to uphold its former glory. Boomtown will be pulsing with performances in every festival side street.
The Town Centre Stage boasts that every single act is guaranteed to get revellers knees above their heads by the second song with a wonderful team of ska-swing enthusiasts booking the cream of the crop to play the main stage
The Lions Den is a jungle world of reggae, roots & dub. Dance around the temple and come face to face with real life warriors & stalking tigers, a mix of exotic beautiful animals to get up close and personal with some of the freshest beats in town.
The Invisible Circus is a late night venue offering a selected showcase from the immersive extravaganza that is Carny Ville, the most dazzling & gravity defying circus acts of the age with a plethora of interactive theatre installations & live music and DJs.
Downtown is the place where hoodlums run amuck with their own agenda for the fair & the richly bizarre takes hold. Everything from The Body Shop (a twisted costume nuthouse of limbs & livers for dress up), The Leisure Centre (everything to maintain body & mind - get ready to feel the burn with daily Rave-aerobics!)

The Old Theatre provides a sanctuary for free thinkers & misfits where self-expression, magic & perversity is the norm, a place where reality and fantasy blur!

The Roadkill Casino features pole dancing ferrets & badger racing, a scandalous riot for a debauched party backdrop! and what town would be complete without a village hall? The Community Centre lays on a traditional knees up in an ASBO Disco, clamber past the burnt out motors and discarded shopping trolleys to find the dancefloor! The Little Shop of Horrors is a jungle of tropical flowers & all things underground, a line up of the UK’s best music producers and world-class artists performing.
The Devil Kicks Dancehall is an unashamed celebration of bourbon trash culture on the rocks, dishevelled decadence, vintage glamour & dancefloor fever whilst The Bad Apple Bar is an Old West Salon Bar, barrels of different ciders and perrys take hold with late night swinging entertainment.
Kids And Workshops, this year kids are a high priority with family camping and entertainment having its own dedicated field! Featuring traditional fairground rides, bouncy castle, face painting, story telling, paddling pools, sandpits, puppet shows & cinema.

The theme for 2014 is Carnival
