Ticket details for Boomtown Fair 2012 announced

Early Bird Tickets for Boomtown Fair 2012 will go on sale at midday on Tuesday 1 November, organisers have announced.

The event will take place at Matterley Bowl, near Winchester, Hampshire from 9 -12 August 2012.

Early Bird tickets for Boomtown Fair 2012 will be priced at £85, plus a £5 “eco deposit.” With tickets selling out in under half an hour for this year’s festival, demand is expected to be strong once again, and Virtual Festivals will have ticket links available for you on the day.

As part of the event’s new ”eco bond” initiative, everyone will be asked to fill a “Boomtown eco bag” with all their rubbish and hand it back to a recycling point, where their £5 deposit will be returned.

Festivalgoers can also purchase a BoomTown cup, and receive a reduction on drinks when it’s used at the bar.

While the pop-up town that the site is built around is set to be “upgraded, adapted and expanded” for the festival’s sixth anniversary, capacity is staying capped at 5,000.

While no artists are yet confirmed for 2012, this year saw the likes of Ms Dynamite, Toddla T, Gogol Bordello, The King Blues and Bad Manners appear.
