THE official lineup for Boomtown Chapter Two: The Twin Trail has been announced, including The Prodigy and Sister Sledge.

Boomtown, the 66,000-capacity music festival on the Matterley Estate, has officially launched the full lineup for this year's festival, as part of its 15th-anniversary celebrations.

The festival, which is famed for its immersive stories and award-winning production, will once again feature famous artists as it returns from Wednesday, August 9 - Sunday, August 13.

Spanning across 12 main stages plus hundreds of smaller venues, audiences can expect to see heavyweights from across many different genres as well as some up-and-coming DJs performing to thousands of festival-goers.

Grand Central, one of the biggest stages, will play host to art-punk legend Peaches, as well as disco royalty Sister Sledge.

Brit Award and Mercury Prize nominee Loyle Carner and hip hop icons Cypress Hill will also take to the stage over the weekend.

The Prodigy will be making their first Winchester performance in almost three decades.

Andy C, Dimension, Interplanetary Criminal, Enei B2B Mefjus ft. Jakes and many more will play on the festival's biggest DJ stage, Origin.

The mammoth stone-like stage towering at over 90 ft tall, with waterfalls cascading at either side and giant fire bowls sitting atop, will provide electronic music lovers the space to dance all day.

There is a brand new stage in district Area 404, Spectrum 360, created by queer DJ pioneer Mandidextrous, that will showcase the full spectrum of the harder style of dance music and serve as a brave space for ravers to dance in unity.

There is a first-time collaboration with Boiler Room and Sports Banger, who are taking over the Hidden Woods all day on Sunday with a full lineup including VTSS B2B Hudson Mohawke, Elli Acula, Tasha plus many more.

TSHA, Eats Everything, HAAi, Helena Hauff and KiNK (Live) will be amongst the artists providing the house, techno and disco beats to dancers late into the night on the Zenith stage.

Alongside the extensive lineup, Boomtown is made unique through its stories that festival-goers can immerse themselves into by exploring the ‘districts’, playing games and interacting with characters.

This year, for the first time ever, attendees can affect the outcome of the closing show by interacting with the storyline and voting via the Woov app.

With nine districts all with their own personalities and town trials and tribulations, audience members will be able to spend their days going back in time at Old Town, or jumping to the future in the Betterverse.

Then dance late into the night to some of the biggest multi-genre artists on the scene. Boomtown runs from Wednesday, August 9 - Sunday, August 13 at the Matterley Estate, Winchester.

The full lineup is available on Woov. Final tickets are available here.
