Chapter 8: Thursday 11TH – Sunday 14TH August 2016


BoomTown’s Chapter 8 line-up announcement schedule reaches the festival’s Latin quarter, Barrio Loco. A neighbourhood that rarely sleeps, its revolutionary spirit and carnival atmosphere run deep through its streets! The infamous Bassline Circus brings their 360° outdoor show ‘Athletes of the Night’, and in addition to the district’s bass-heavy hub Poco Loco an all-new stage plays host to a bill of house and techno trailblazers.

Heading up Poco Loco are two giants of hip-hop culture; New York rap legend Pharaohe Monch accompanied by a full live band, and one of the greatest to ever touch two turntables, DJ Craze.  Representing the UK hip-hop and bass music scene are Foreign Beggars, JFB, Dead Players, Dr Syntax & Pete Cannon, DRS (Live), Gardna, Jenna & the G’s, Jman, Jus Now, Levelz, Mouse Outfit, Mr Woodnote & Lil Rhys, Red Eye HiFi with Kathika, Fox, Sparkz & Kiva, Submotion Orchestra, Swindle (Live) and White Bully (Live), plus a live AV show from beatbox supremo Reeps One, the reunion of DJ Format & Abdominal and Doncaster soldier MC Devvo.
