Boomtown Area 404

Brand new for Bristol, the minds and visionaries behind the UKs most immersive and theatrical festival will bring their jaw dropping levels of creativity back to where it all began 11 years ago, in their brand new permanent creative events space in Bristol, near Temple Meads train station.

Launching this Halloween, on Weekend 1: Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd November, Weekend 2 Friday 8th and Saturday 9th November. Boomtown are inviting people to ‘Explore the deserted industrial quadrant of AREA 404: an overgrown immersive, dystopia filled with lost souls and the half-living…’  for a nighttime festival experience beyond this world…  Update: Tickets are nearly sold out for all shows with only Fridath 8th November still on sale.

The warren like complex will house five rooms, permeating with the sounds that radiate from Boomtown’s very core… The main room will feature high energy live music , similar to those who’ve soundtracked the festival’s mainstages for the past decade. The medium and smaller rooms will host a perfect spectrum of reggae, techno, house, dnb and disco, ensuring the true Boomtown spirit is represented and brings people together in a huge melting pot of musical styles, theatrical exploration and creative endeavour. 

Boomtown is firmly rooted as a creative powerhouse on the UK festival scene. Their annual event held in South Downs National Park Nr. Winchester, attracts 66,000 from all over the world to experience the top level production values, film set like set design and an ever expansive and infinitely broad music booking policy. Over the years the festival has welcomed an eclectic mix of international superstars such as; Gorilaz, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Prophets Of Rage, M.I.A. Limp Bizkit, Cypress Hill, Madness, The Specials, Jimmy Cliff, The Wailers, Toots and the Maytals, Damian Marley, Carl Cox, as well as providing a platform and celebration of local Bristol talent, such as My Nu Leng, Eva Lazarus, Dr Meaker, 24hr Garage Girls, Carny Villains and DJ Die. 

We are so pleased to be able to finally announce this venue, it feels like a proper homecoming for us! We’re unbelievably excited to be able to showcase everything we’ve grown into since we started putting on gigs in Bristol over a decade ago. To be able to bring our unique mix of interactive and immersive theatre, the beautifully handcrafted intricate set designs and to represent a huge amount of music genres all under one roof, is going to be something incredibly special! Boomtown Organisers
