Boomtown Fair has announced the line-up for its 2020 festival. Headlining the Hampshire gig includes American hip hop icons Wu-Tang Clan, grime artist Kano, Underworld, and The Libertines. The five-day festival runs from August 12-16, billed as “Chapter 12: New Beginnings”.
Boomtown Festival, a 66,000 capacity event, is held annually at the Matterley Estate near Winchester. Further acts billed include Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, Mura Masa, Kelis, Squarepusher, Orbital and Kool & The Gang.
So, it’s a lengthy lineup, with Shy FX, Noisia, Andy C, Angerfist, and Skindred also billed. Plus, drum ‘n’ bass legends Pendulum will be presenting Pendulum Trinity, an entirely new show for the 2020 run. Have a gander at who else is featured to perform below. It’s fair to say, there’s a lot going on.
It’s a lot to look forward to, and the Hampshire festival’s twelfth year doesn’t appear to disappoint. For ticket and further information on Boomtown Fair, check out the link here.
