BoomTown adds Pharoahe Monch, Derrick May and Skream

BoomTown Fair returns this year for its eighth chapter.

The sprawling festival, based around nine districts, has just announced the lineup for Latin quarter Barrio Loco, focused on house, hip-hop, techno and bass.

The first of the district’s two stages is the returning Poco Loco, headlined by NY rap legend Pharaohe Monch and turntable wizard DJ Craze. The UK is represented pretty well here, with jazzy bass producer Swindle bringing his live band, and Manchester’s Levelz crew sure to prove that they’re worthy of all the hype.

Vamos is a new addition, playing host to some of the biggest names in dance music. Old school heroes Derrick May and Derrick Carter will be repping Detroit and Chicago respectively, Nightmares On Wax will be showing off his DJ skills, while Skream, Jackmaster and B.Traits will be bringing the best in contemporary house and techno.

Check out the full Barrio Loco lineup below, and watch a very cool highlights reel from last year’s festival.

BoomTown Fair takes place 11-14 August, Matterley Estate, Winchester. Tickets are available right here, currently priced at £170.
