BoomTown Fair takes place over 13th – 16th August in the Matterley Estate nr. Winchester. With eight individual and distinct districts to explore BoomTown Fair is a very different festival to the norm… Coming from the roots of British and European subculture since it has grown from 1,000 to 45,000 ‘citizens’ in just six years. This ever expanding community are treated to a completely other-worldly experience and are fully immersed in elaborate and carefully crafted ‘film’ sets, where each venue or stage has a position in the overarching storyline that continuously evolves within the world’s craziest city! Hosting a soundtrack from reggae to psytrance, hip-hop to folk, gypsy and jungle there is something for everyone and all ages to discover in a completely new world!

As with all of BoomTown’s districts, Barrio Loco’s has a running storyline:

The vibrant community of Barrio Loco and current ruling district of BoomTown, love nothing more than to fiesta ‘til dawn!! That was, until Burrita turned her back on them and channelled all public funds into an outrageously ginormous Palace to prove her dominance and power… Unrest is stirring, the people are rising, what does Chapter 7 hold for the streets of Barrio Loco??
