Lak Mitchell, founder of Boomtown commented, “We’re seriously excited about expanding on the rock music side of the festival… The first event I ever put on was a heavy metal gig when I was 16 and have been in various thrash/punk/metal bands ever since, so to represent such an amazing British musical culture within the context of Boomtown is insanely exciting and I can’t wait to see where this takes us.”
