Boomtown Fair Launches New Temporary Bristol Venue

Boomtown Fair Launches New Temporary Bristol Venue

The UK’s most ridiculously eccentric and eclectic festival, BoomTown Fair, is coming back to where it all began with a brand new temporary live venue in the heart of Bristol.

Open from January – April 2015 the Circus of Boom series will host eight different themed nights showcasing the diversity of culture, music and characters that make up BoomTown’s fantasy world.

Opening on 30th January with the rambunctious Wild West district and closing on the 19th April with The Skints, attendees to the Circus of Boom nights will celebrate the music and atmosphere from each of the eight districts of BoomTown, globetrotting through music genres and experiencing a small slice of BoomTown magic in central Bristol.
