Boomtown, the UK’s largest independent, theatrically led festival, has just announced that they will be reducing the ticket price for the 2021 event in response to the pandemic.  Returning to its home in the Matterley Estate in the South Downs National Park, nr. Winchester, over 11th – 15th August 2021, the creative event has also confirmed that tickets and event details for the 2021 event will all be released on 1st October 2021.

Commenting on the change in pricing strategy Boomtown founders said; “With so many people going through so much right now, we felt a reduction in ticket price was vital. By reimagining how we run and create Boomtown, we’ve been able to reduce the price, but also enhance the parts that make us a truly unique experience.”

As well as a huge variety of music, Boomtown is one of the most adventurous, colourful and immersive festivals with a unique ongoing storyline maze and intricate film-like sets which hundreds of actors bring to life, with endless venues and streets to explore

Boomtown will simultaneously unveil the new creative direction, deepend ethos and emergence of a new, extraordinary and boundary pushing world for 2021.  

With over half of the 2020 ticket holders choosing to support Boomtown and the festival industry during these challenging times by rolling their 2020 tickets over to 2021, there is less than half the amount of tickets available for 2021. Tickets are expected to fly out of the door and the public are encouraged to explore the new price options for the different ticket and instalment options available.  

Having grown in size from 1,000 to over 66,000 capacity Boomtown’s ongoing priority is to protect the environment from the impact of an event this size.  To raise awareness amongst the public that attend and encourage them to make changes to their behaviour both at the festival and beyond. The event will push forward with sustainable initiatives embedded into all of the planning and infrastructure.
