Boomtown Fair ’19

on

Since all the festivals were cancelled this year we are throwing it back to when we went to Boomtown Fair last 2019. If you don’t already know what Boomtown is, BoomTown Fair is a massive roots, reggae and bass music festival that takes place every August in Winchester, UK.  It has evolved from a small gathering of like-minded friends into a multi-stage spectacular encompassing 14 unique districts. Offering people a fully immersive, theatrically-led experience like no other, Boomtown is one of the world’s most innovative festivals. You can catch iconic musical legends across over 20 main stages and delve into Boomtown’s storyline as hundreds of actors bring the districts to life. Each district offers different music from all over the world from ska, folk, gypsy, reggae, world, punk, pirate and disco, via electro-swing, jazz, bluegrass, bass, jungle and techno. We stayed in the artist camping zone as Tianna was a back-up dancer for Bristolian artist Eva Lazarus. Shout out to Eva Lazarus, if you don’t know her music already and you’re into reggae/rap/garage I suggest you check her out. She’s a BOSS. We performed on the Thursday night on stage Poco Loco in an area called ‘Barrio Loco’. It was such an amazing experience. We also got the opportunity to meet other artists as we had back-stage passes which was INSANE. We got to see Lauryn Hill, Salt-N-Pepa, Chase & Status, Carl Cox, Chronixx, Alborosie, Sister Nancy and many other new artists that we discovered there. The whole experience was surreal and magical. We didn’t take many pictures as we were enjoying ourselves too much to be on our phones, but we have some to look back on and to show a little taste of what it was like.
