The most recent district to be announced in Boomtown’s bumper pack of line-ups is the much loved Mayfair. With a backdrop of Vintage Remix, Funk & Soul and Electro Swing, this highly theatrical district brings characters, costumes and ultimate fun to the forefront; whilst at the same time putting consumerism and capitalism under the microscope through the multitude of interactive street venues, walkabout characters and immersive theatre.

Acts representing the Mayfair music genres on  the  Town Centre include; independant French producer Wax Tailor, festival favourites 10-piece live outfit Smerins Anti-Social Club, Sam & The Womp’s trumpet and vocal Balkan electronica  and Bordeaux beatmakers Smokey Joe & The Kid with their infectious hip hop loops.

Mixing 1940s jazz with hip hop, drum & bass, house and techno, The Ballroom presents a glittering extravaganza courtesy of Charleston-inspired electro from Alice Francis, bringing Romania to Hampshire. Future Funk duo LMZG (Lamuzgueule) will take the crowd through a history of vintage sounds and Paris/New York duo GinkGoa provide a modern slant on Electroswing. Bristol boys The Allergies deliver ‘vintage sounds reshaped for the dancefloor’ whilst Smoove and Turrell’s Northern Funk encompasses soul, hip hop and jazz.

Twisted cabaret and swinging steampunk awaits any that stroll past The Bandstand, where the most colourful acts go to shine.

Find there the fantastically barmy Hallouminati mixing ragga punk with traditional Greek sounds, Gypsy Unit bulking up basslines with infectious string sections and skapunk Londoners Imperial Leisure exciting the feet.

Long-standing street venue, Park Hotel is the ultimate playground with an almighty Soca takeover on the cards, courtesy of Jus Now, Dub Boy, Atki2 and AAA Badboy. Crowd participation at its finest, Laid Blak will be getting the crowd to go down low whilst Eva Lazarus and The Afronaughts bring 3 part harmonies to jungle, garage, hip hop and everything in between. The Mayfair Street Party will be taking swing to the streets with Scottish collective, Electrikal Sound System supplying their mega rig fresh from Thursday’s Sector 6 opening. Expect sets from Dutty Moonshine, Big Swing Sound ft Hypeman Sage and C@ In The H@ to name a few.

Down the shimmering side streets and The Bank’s doors are open for all to discover where money goes to lie before gazing down from the Sky Bar with a glass of champagne.
