In the wake of their unexpected cancellation, Sunrise Festival has joined forces with Boomtown to bring you the new Sunrise Area at Boomtown Fair 2015!
Sunrise Celebration has risen from the ashes to party another day by joining forces with BoomTown Fair, providing the perfect setting for all Sunrise ticket holders to enjoy the festival they wanted, but with a lot of added extras, including; Stephen Marley, Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello, Barrington Levy, John Butler Trio, Black Uhuru and Infected Mushroom. Following on from the Sunrise cancellation statement last month, the two festivals can now confirm that a Sunrise area will go ahead as they further the plans to create a magical experience bringing the full Sunrise Celebration experience to BoomTown with a brand new meadow and woodland zone being especially created.
Sunrise ticket holders wishing to swap will not only get to experience all the creativity, theatrics and mind-blowing set production that goes into BoomTown, but those who fancy exploring the whole of the crazy world that is on offer to them will get the chance to see over 500 international artists from across a huge variety of music genres including Ska, Reggae, Dub, Folk, Gypsy, Balkan, Punk, Hip-Hop, Garage, Drum n Bass and a whole lot more. These genre leading acts are all showcased on some of the most jaw dropping stages in the festival world, including a 40ft Aztec Temple, a 90ft long pirate ship, the fully moving Old Mines and brand new for 2015, the immense nine story high Bang Hai Palace!
Every now and then, in the festival world, those very rare occasions take place when two individual creative communities come together to build something totally unique, special and fully unexpected. Where we get the very best of both worlds and because both BoomTown and Sunrise share such similar values, this collaboration, in this form is exceptionally exciting for everyone involved.
