Since launching in 2009 Boomtown has established itself as one of the UK’s most dazzling festivals, with production levels that transport you to another world and a mighty line-up spread across 27 main stages.
For its 11th edition this summer, which takes place in Winchester across August 7 to 11, Boomtown is introducing the new post-apocalyptic themed district AREA 404 to showcase hard-hitting electronic music and rap, ranging from Carl Cox, Amelie Lens and Four Tet to The Streets, Little Simz and Ms. Lauryn Hill.
Drumcode are taking over AREA 404’s Nucleus stage on the Sunday with Dense & Pika locked in to perform. The duo emerged in 2011 and have since established themselves as one of the most unique acts in modern techno, achieving many career milestones from a BBC Essential Mix to releases on Drumcode and Hotflush.
