Boomtown is a festival all about love, The story of Boomtown started in 2009 by its creators Chris Rutherford, Lak Mitchell creating a fully immersive theatrical and music experience. 2021, is the beginning of a new story for Boomtown, its chapter one, the gathering.
The Boomtown Ethos
THE SIX PILLARS OF BOOMTOWN:
Respect Yourself: In a world that can make us doubt our own worth, we want to provide a space for self-empowerment and freedom of expression.
Respect Each Other: In a world that is deeply scarred by the open wounds of racism and prejudice, we want people of all backgrounds, beliefs, ages, gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities and races to know that you belong and are safe in our city.
Respect the Planet: In a world that is burning, we call on our collective humanity to come together to find solutions and care for nature, as she cares for us.
Creativity: In a world where conformity is valued over creativity, we want to provide a platform that nurtures artistic freedom and pushes the boundaries of creative expression.
Connection: In a world where digital connection so often replaces physical connection, we cherish the depth of togetherness that comes from the gatherings of humans.
Celebration: In a world that can so often feel overloaded with negativity, we want to celebrate the very best this beautiful planet and all humanity can achieve, in one almighty party where everyone’s welcome!
For 2021, Boomtown are starting with a clean slate and our world of new wonders to discover in Chapter One: The Gathering.
The premise is simple, we are a Gathering… Gatherings are a deep part of human connection and celebration and have been so for millennia, but in these current real-world times, they were also one of the first things to be outlawed. When we come together this will be The Gathering we’ve all been needing for so long…
The depths of our story in this reset year are as yet unknown, but we will be building our version of a post-pandemic world and exploring what that can mean for our collective ‘new normal’.
As ever, all are invited to fully participate by creating their own character and discovering their part to play in this ever-evolving story.
