Limp Bizkit, Enter Shikari and more to play at Boomtown

By Emma Greveson

At the forefront of Boomtown’s immersive and theatrical festival is live music and this year as Boomtown reveals the line-up for one of its founding stages located at the very centre of the fictitious city, Town Centre, is providing 60,000 festival goers that visit the Winchester based event with an experience not to be missed. Live music genres from across the festival are pulled together across a multitude of awe-inspiring acts on this eclectic stage.

Topping the bill for Chapter 10 this August are; rap-rockers Limp Bizkit bringing body throwing nostalgia to the forefront of the stage, Enter Shikari’s post-hardcore experimental rock and the anti-austerity punk of Nottingham hailing duo Sleaford Mills whose music seamlessly mirrors the festivals own immersive storyline and political ethos.

All standard tickets for the festival have now sold out but there will be a limited resale of tickets for any that have been refunded in June – sign up here to register. Boomtown Springs has also been announced as a brand new immersive camping experience at the festival for those who like a little extra comfort, going on sale April 11th.
