All You Need is BASS

Our Top 14 Summer Bass Music Festivals to Attend in 2014



Location: Matterley Estate, Winchester, Hants, England

Dates: August 7 – 10, 2014

Our Reason: Divided into nine separate “districts”, BoomTown is a temporary city of revelry. Each city district features a different kind of music, which is an original take on festival stages. For example the DownTown district features drum and bass and jungle, whereas China Town has punk and ska. The entire musical lineup focuses on non commercial music, and festival organizers scour the globe for the best acts in all the genres. BoomTown has an underlying theatrical plot that goes with the entire event. There are hundreds of cast members playing roles at the party, and they can pop up at any time to play out some part of the plot. There are city elections each year to vote for the best district, as well at the mayor of BoomTown! Last year’s winning District was Barrio Loco, which means it’s now the “ruling distrct” of BoomTown. Barrio Loco alone has four separate venues/stages with a stacked line up. Multiply that by nine districts and BoomTown looks to be a huge festival with so much going on you would never, ever have a lull in activities. This one even has a family friendly area, KidzTown, which has an activity roster full of interactive installations. KidzTown alone looks like an entire festival.
