Boomtown 2019 takes place at the Matterley Bowl, Hampshire on 7-11 August

UK festival Boomtown have added yet another new 'district' for their 2019 event. AREA 404 will be dedicated to techno sounds, and brings the total number of districts at Boomtown to 14, with a whopping 27 main stages and 80 'street venues' between them.

Boomtown don't like to do things by halves, so they've roped in Drumcode and Bugged Out! to help them set up their new techno playground - they'll be hosting the Friday and Sunday, respectively. DJs you can expect to see in action include Carl Cox, Four Tet, Amelie Lens, Mall Grab, Ben UFO, Joy Orbison, Erol Alkan, Boyz Noize, Eats Everything, Skream, Claude VonStroke, Dense & Pika and La Fleur B2B B.Traits.

That's a very impressive line-up for what is a mere 1/14th of a festival, we're sure you'll agree! If you do, then tickets are on sale now, starting at £229 for a weekend pass. See the Boomtown website for details.
