"Clockwise have been with us for the past 10 years and their ambition, determination and ability to deliver exactly, if not more than, our ridiculous vision still totally blows us away!" - Anna Wade - Communications Manager - Boomtown Fair

Execution

This 60,000-capacity event requires an extensive team to capture the action taking place across the site and secure the footage we need to produce a series of highlights pieces, live sets and documentaries to release throughout the year and keep the audience engaged.

Boomtown sets itself apart from other festivals by creating a truly immersive environment. The site resembles a Hollywood film set and we shoot character-led theatrical scenes to combine with festival highlights to create after-movies with a story that leave a lasting impression. The Boomtown aftermovie is the centrepiece of our coverage, attracting millions of views and generating positive coverage from both mainstream and music publications.

Regular highlights, live sets and documentaries are published throughout the year via the Boomtown social media channels and form a key strand of the festival’s marketing strategy. Tickets sell out months in advance and the festival has grown substantially year on year.
