The madness of Boomtown Fair 2013 – full photo report online

Once again, Boomtown proved to be my favourite festival of the year, serving up a wonderfully chaotic mix of music, performance art and Gawdknowswhatelse.

Unlike many festivals, Boomtown isn’t centred around big bands and superstars, but about little happenings around the site, which had been magically transformed into a large town with rows of façades lining the streets.

By hook or by crook I’m going to endeavour to put on a stage there next year!

Here’s a selection of some photos from the main Boomtown 2013 feature on urban75.

The Lion’s Den stage was nothing short of awesome.
