Boomtown is a unique festival concept, an enthralling pop-up city with several distinct districts to explore. The ‘Heart Of The City’ opens up into six districts, each hosting its own musical and fancy dress theme. Reggae heroes Jimmy Cliff and The Wailers will grace Trench Town’s turf, which contains a 40ft Aztec temple and features the best in dub, dancehall and jungle. If that’s not for you, maybe the classy Mayfield Avenue, with its electro-swing bands packing out the Ballroom, Gentleman’s Club and Roller Disco might take your fancy. ‘The Outskirts’ contains China Town, ever-popular, party-paradise Down Town and winning district Barrio Loco.

More info and tickets available here. Or, enter our competition. Clash has a pair of tickets to Boomtown to give away. Entrants must be aged 18 or over – and Clash can’t cover any costs beyond the tickets themselves. Sorry about that. The beers are on you. Winners will be contacted on July 18, 2014. Good luck!
