Bringing the 'Outer Space' vibe to Boomtown this year

BoomTown's fancy dress theme for 2012 will be... Outer Space! and as well as the theme BoomTown have outlined the plans for 15 new venues and extra terrestrial areas, attractions and adventures.
 
BoomTown’s theme provides a starting point for the towns folk to create the character they wish to become for the whole festival. With the mothership Arcadia crash landing onsite, strange creatures infesting the surrounding woodlands and mutated vehicles patrolling the landscape, the aliens are walking amongst you and if you can’t beat ‘em, may as well blow up a pair of marigolds, stick them on your head, spray yourself silver and join in!
 
As well as the addition of 15 new quirky and unique venues to get lost in, there are a selection of additional stages including Arcadia, Bearded Kitten’s Bank and the Hidden Woods.
 
Bearded Kitten presents...The Bank, the Gentleman’s Club, 2012 sees The Bearded Boys hosting a plethora of lawn-based mischief all day in their brand new outdoor arena and unveil the grand opening the very first branch of the Boomtown bank! Expect array of financial fun, games, activities and general silliness followed by late-night knees-ups in the Gentleman’s parlour!
 
The Hidden Woods stage, set in the glorious leafed canopy of the surrounding woodland tucked away from the chaos, will present some of the finest live dub and reggae bands and provide the perfect place to sit back, relax and lose yourself!

On top of the new stages, the town committee have been given the go ahead to expand the city into a huge luscious new area for more camping, with access to the town being only a short walk along the beautiful wooded walkway. The ever growing craft and healing field has also expanded this year with new additions including saunas, hot tubs, psytrance and chillout areas.  

Weekend tickets are on sale now and cost £116 - selling fast so if you want this one you might need to be quick now
