BOOMTOWN Fair 2012 has officially sold out. But you still have a chance to grab a last-minute ticket if you’re quick!
The organisers are holding a resale of cancelled tickets from 9am on Friday morning (20 July) – first come, first served! Ravetalk has been told that around 500 such tickets are available.
This is the fourth time in a row that Boomtown has now officially sold out. This year’s event near Winchester includes Reel Big Fish, Caravan Palace, Alborosie, Beenie Man, Tanya Stephens and a very special secret Sunday headliner.
Boomtown transports the festival goer into a fully working town, complete with a bank, casino, hotel, numerous saloons, theatre, street parties. This year Glastonburyâ€™s Arcadia Spectacular is taking over a whole new part of the town in the guise of an alien invasion, in keeping with apocalyptic forecasts based on the year 2012.
Organisers add that there is more space for campers and the extension into the nearby woodland for treetop walkways and more sun dappled chill out areas.
