It’s the time of year you’ve all been waiting for: THE ANNUAL BOOMTOWN FAIR COMIC!

Well, it’s the time of year a very specific section of my friendship group has been waiting for. And also nagging for. Well it’s here now, you can stop nagging! And guess what, IT’S THE FIRST OF TWO FOR THIS YEAR’S BOOMTOWN! HAPPY NOW?!

I’m sure you;re all well aware by now but I bloody love Boomtown Fair! I have been to every single chapter over seven years and loved them all.

This year’s gathering is going to take some beating!

I have never had so much fun at a festival! So many great bands playing! So many bands I can’t believe I’d not seen before! HOW HAVE I NOT SEEN LESS THAN JAKE BEFORE THIS?!

Anyway, part of the reason Boomtown is so great is the decor. The town centre stage is an epic Tudor building with a stage set into it, surrounded by the town centre courtyard with the Town Hall, Post Office and main bar and lined around the top with JETS OF FIRE!

Wandering around after a headline band, Rob Brand, with his eye for weird techy stuff, happened upon a steward with a weird console thing. Turns out, it does FIRE!

We made fire happen

It was epic.
