Boomtown Fair is returning for its tenth-year celebrations over 9th – 12th August, at Matterley Estate, near Winchester, Hampshire. Today the festival announce their Diss-order Alley line-up, a new area for Chapter 10.

“Boomtown Fair is one of the most unique and thriving festivals in the UK and it’s a privilege to be a part of it for Chapter 10. We are on a mission to bring heavy music to the masses and big credit goes to everyone at Boomtown for welcoming us with open arms… We have a varied line up that should go down a storm but we have tried to book bands with a purpose, bands that mean something and are fighting for positive change in this world. Bring your earplugs.”
