BOMfest 2012 is here. Saturday will see the best party Barnsley has had the pleasure to host and what a top show we have got coming. We know what stigma Barnsley has had over the years and many of the city people wont usually venture over these parts but now the town has something to tempt them which is well worth the journey. The crew will be turning up onsite on Tuesday and spending all week preparing and building the event and cant wait to get cracking. Lets just hope the weather is with us. Hope you have a good time and please respect each other and the surrounding community of Worsbrough.

The best unsigned artists of 2012 on show
BOMfest will be in its seventh year this summer and from its humble beginnings in 2005, next to the Barnsley main pit shaft and has defied all odds and become Yorkshire’s most cutting edge supporter of original unsigned artists and prides itself as also being one of the better value for money, live music events providing 7 stages of new cutting edge action.
In 2009, BOMfest was first recognised by the Telegraph newspaper as one of the top 100 events of that year, whilst still only hosting four stages and in the past two years, and after securing what now seems to be a home for BOMfest at Worsborough mill and country park, Barnsley, South Yorkshire S70 5LJ, the event has evolved whilst still keeping loyal to its spirit and ethos.
This years chosen artists have been selected from over 1000 applicants and many hours of checking out live performances at the “South sea ” in Sheffield, and with the limited number of available slots on offer to performers at this years event, the artists chosen to play can rest assured that in this hard knock, labour of love industry, BOMfest has recognised their dedication and hard work. Every artist deserves the support and encouragement which I am sure the BOMfest revellers will provide to make BOMfest 2012 a day to remember for Performers, volunteers and attendees.
Thanks for your support
The Danse Society will be playing their long awaited homecoming gig at BOMfest this year.
