The summer is coming to an unwanted end; the festival season is just about to shut its doors for another year meaning back to dull, mind numbing reality for most of us… Unless you’ve completely forgotten that the almighty Boom Bap Festival is merely two weeks away — not so sad anymore now are you?! The weekend beginning 13th- 15th September marks the second year for Boom Bap, a concept which begun as a night in Norwich and has since erupted into the biggest date in the metaphorical hip hop calendar. The back bone of Boom Bap really is its sheer range of hip hop on offer, with an enormous array of 100+ acts spread over five stages; this truly is a mecca for anyone even slightly invested in the UK scene.
When the entire line up was released I initially thought it would difficult to top last year’s effort however with the likes of Chester P, Klashnekoff and Skinnyman ready to storm the main stage, it’s clear that this year is going to be a much bigger event. Which is exactly what has been promised to the heads attending, with an increased ticket price of £70 (which really isn’t that steep, come on) Boom Bap has pledged to raise the bar to a whole new level entirely, vowing to completely transform the site in time for your awaited arrival.
Set to be an incredible weekend full of seriously good vibes with an unbeatable atmosphere that flows the acres of land like some crazy magic it’s well worth getting yourself down to Peterborough to join in the madness. Come for the line up, stay for Boom Bap’s all uniting spirit – a touching testament to the hard work gone into creating the festival.
