One of the UK’s wildest independent festivals, the BoomTown Fair, is bringing its extravaganza to London this coming Saturday. The event is part of the BoomTown Gatherings, a series of warm-up parties across the UK ahead of the festival that will take place in August in the county of Hampshire.
Happening in the two rooms of the Electric Brixton, the only mid-range venue in the area with a capacity of over 1,500 people, and organised by Continental Drifts, GoMad Events and Deep Brass Productions, the night will see both performances by live musician and DJs, such as Ed Solo & Deekline, A.Skillz, Cut Capers and Dj Chris Tofu.
This will not be a conventional gig though. Expect to find themed interactive areas and walkabout perfomers: a cabaret casino, a circus, and beauticians ready to remodel you into a character of your choice.
