UK: Boomtown will introduce a new district to its site this year, entitled Forgotten Valley, that ‘brings together ancient spiritual ways mixed in with modern-day aspirations’. Positioned in the centre of the festival, adjacent to the family-friendly Kidztown, the area will comprise workshops, crafts, and music.
Central to Forgotten Valley’s theme of blending the past with the present is Ancient Futures, a space dedicated to the importance of building new and sustainable futures. It will host various speakers, workshops and artists, with hundreds of additional expert-led workshops taking place in the surrounding area that span circus and dance, yoga, Tai Chi, and massage. There is also a healing zone, an area devoted to green innovation, and an array of jam spaces for musicians.
