BoomTown Fair is back and is bigger than ever before. The music and arts festival returns on Thursday 10th of August and is titled ‘Behind The Mask’. Expect the kind of mystic, fantastic and outright brilliance that we have come to love from BoomTown but this year it has been amped up to a whole new level.
Alongside the ska, folk, reggae and rave music that are traditionally associated with summer festivities, BoomTown plays host to a vast variety of comedy, spoken word, art and theatre. There are some big acts lined up including The Specials, Cypress Hill, Frank Turner and Ziggy Marley.
Performing at Poco Loco are Keakie favourites AJ Tracey, Elf Kid and Loyle Carner, who has just released his debut album ‘Yesterday’s Gone’.
Describing ADHD as his superpower, British rapper Loyle Carner has used his well-deserved spotlight for the good of others. Founding ‘Chilli Con Carner’, a cookery course in aid of 14-16 year old teenagers with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), he has used his passion for cooking and past experiences to aid the younger generation into following their dreams, regardless of any minor setbacks. After speaking of feeling isolated in school as a result of his ADHD, Ben has decided to take a hands-on role in ensuring that other young adults use their creativity to delve into something they love and it’s truly inspiring.
