    Lineup looks good, well what has been released of it.

    I went in 2013 and was disappointed by the fact they kept turning down all the soundsystems when it got late.
    Couple of my mates went last year and said it happened again on some stages.

    Too many cons to justify buying a ticket at the moment. Loved every other aspect in 2013 other that that. Buckets of booze for brekkie in the hidden forest was my forte

    Up to 50k now. They have expanded the site a fair amount and there's more sections. New House section in the woods, some yoga/meditation hippy bollocks area. They also had 70 complaints last year from locals regarding sound. They've brought in some 'special sound engineers' who have been working on stage and speaker placement to stop the sound from getting to the locals without it affecting the punter's experience. Guess time will only tell if it's effective.

    Soph. I forgot Pants.. so just went all out wellies. was airy. and fun.

    Boomtown 2015 ... DONE.

    DC Breaks set!!! oh. my. days. wonder if it got recorded. i wanna hear that again! ... was a fucking sweat pit in there tho and some ppl proper hummed.

    no arcadia , palace was not too shabby. needs more fire.

    Big Ups to all the overly fit women this year. Small Downs to all the overly gangster rudeboys givin it the biggun. see a fair bit of trouble. the whole thing seemed smaller this year but maybe just too used to it. untill next year.

    How was the sound? Did all their insulation trickery work? Did the Bodyshop actually bang?

    awesome one this year, the best they've done I Reckon. Sound levels were improved since last year, yes body shop was banging. Prohibition was banging.

    But onto the politics of the festival, things need to change. I have seen this festival go from 10-15k to 50k in just 4 years and i don't believe it can expand anymore in the location that it is in, there is simply no room. Also what the fuck is all the alcohol sponsors about? Corona having their own stage? Jaegermeister having one? I don't like the direction this festival seems to be heading but what else can they do?

    Cant say Im too depressed I didnt go but Im glad to hear its improved.

    It is depressing how quickly its grown, but other festivals like Mischief, Balter and Symmetry are the new "small Boomtowns"

    Best festival of my life I recon, the stages and the sound in the places I went was just silly good!

    Infected mushroom were fucking on point and the system in that woods was ridiculous! Noisia and break destroyed the dance! Dc breaks set was off the chain vibes, went hard for that..

    All in all I loved every minute, can't wait to do it all again... Plus the weather was surprisingly manageable, proper win!
