BoomTown Fair have kick started six weeks of intensive line up announcements with the bass heavy playground of DSTRKT 5.

Taking place over 13th – 16th August in the Matterley Estate bowl in Hampshire, they have now released the final part of the ‘Chapter 7: The Introduction’ trilogy:



As the festival is made up of eight very different ‘districts’ which celebrate a variety of music genres and cultures from Ska to Jungle, Reggae to Folk and a whole load more in between and beyond, the line ups are released district by district.

First out is the mecca of DSTRKT 5, which true to form will be hosting some of the most innovative names in the scene including Squarepusher, Noisia, Spor, Machinedrum, a Metalheadz takeover and Surgeon to name a few, resulting in a powerhouse line-up and the perfect soundtrack for BoomTown’s unveiling of a the brand new centre-stage for DownTown. The Palace is all set to be the UKs largest fully immersive festival dance arena!

Keeping Squarepusher good company on The Palace stage is a drum and bass lineup that is like no other:

Spor
Noisia
Metalheadz 20 Year Takeover (Hosted by SP:MC):
Goldie b2b Dillinja
Ulterior Motive b2b Dom and Roland
