As we mentioned just briefly in yesterday's Weekend Primer, the line-up's been announced for this year's Boomtown Fair, and it's shaping up to be an absolute stormer.


The headline acts for 'Chapter Eight', as they're calling, it are a typically eclectic selection: Madness, Damian Marley, Leftfield, Fat Freddy's Drop, Parov Stelar and The Levellers. And the rest of the bill is just as varied - and just as star-studded!
