Boomtown reveal their astonishing headliners
This week Boomtown released their lineup for this summers festival. And believe me, if you haven’t seen the calibre of talented artists and musicians revealed then you’d better sit down! Taking place between 12th – 16th August we see them returning once again to their home of Matterley Estate, Winchester. With their big reveal the 66,000 capacity, living, breathing creation of independent artistic endeavour, has again surpassed its own expectations.
Some of the artists announced (far too many to mention them all) that we’re really excited about are Wu-Tang Clan, Underworld, Pendulum Trinity, Orbital, High Contrast Band, Andy C, Helena Hauff, Noisia, The Black Madonna, Maceo Plex, Eats Everything b2b Monika Cruz, Moodymann, Horse Meat Disco, Stanton Warriors, David Rodigan and Sy FX to name a few!
Alongside unveiling an incredible lineup of international superstars and underground legends, the theatrically led festival released the movie-like trailer for ‘State of Emergency’, a brand new multi-stage spectacular show that is set to unfold throughout the duration of the festival, in a full throttle, dazzling display of modern-day circus and mind-bending technologies!
Always ones to hold a mirror up to the real world, Boomtown’s brand new site wide show will delve deep into the overarching storyline, as well as question where we are as a society and how, if possible, we can find a route to ‘New Beginnings’, perfectly circling back to the Chapter 12 title. Although the full details about how Boomtown will create this multi-stage spectacular will not be released until the festival, it is described as:
“A high energy, theatrical spectacular of circus and performance, as well as boundary-pushing sound design, technology and special effects to create a 360 degree experience across multiple stages and areas. Curated by Boomtown production and theatrical teams, as well as circus troupes from across the world, the Boomtown story will unfold on an unrivalled scale throughout the 5-days…’ Boomtown Organisers
In the distinctly cinematic launch trailer, avid Boomtown followers can find some very exciting ‘easter eggs’ planted within the trailer as the gates to Chapter 12 The Maze are officially opened…The immersive game play is on!
