09 Sep Boomtown Halloween: Launch of “Area 404” in Bristol
Readers of Ohana!
Our favourite annual festival has some exciting news! Boomtown festival has taken the leap from festival to permanent events space!
The 4 year in the making venue will be in Bristol (Boomtowns HQ).
“Launching this Halloween, on Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd 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 night time festival experience beyond this world…
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.”
For Bristol locals this will be a breath of fresh air – not only as there has been little in the way of venue openings for the city in recent years, but also because it feels natural that Boomtown should have a permanent outlet for the creativity of the festival, extending the experience all year round!
Look out for more events to be held here as the Halloween events are only the start of this new chapter for Boomtown!
