Boomtown Fair adds reggae legends

I do like the sound of Boomtown Fair. The likes of Toots & The Maytals and Ozomatli will ensure a party vibe while all facets of reggae, drum and bass culture are explored with the likes of Digital Mystikz, Buggsy, Richie Spice, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and LTJ Bukem. (I didn’t realise the latter was still in circulation, did you?)

Mates that went last year told me it’s very West Country…I think they meant loads of white dreads, dope and ketamine. The friends are from the West Country by the way, and assured me “being very West Country” is no bad thing. This is a proper rave, which probably means I won’t be going with the nippers. Which is a shame, cos the site sounds like a wonderful place to explore.

My mate also warned me that a few names on the stellar line-up didn’t turn up. However, he may have just been over-indulgent and missed them. And frankly, the list of stars is so extensive that if you dig this kinda thing, there will probably be plenty to keep you amused. A right royal rave up is virtually guaranteed methinks.
