Win 2 pairs of Boomtown tickets and raise funds for The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM)

With an epic extension of their monthly show on SWU.FM, Boomtown programmers Kaptin Barrett and James Wonka will be taking over the airwaves for a whole 12 hours, giving away 2 pairs of Boomtown tickets and raising funds for The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), an excellent and important  charity who are leading a movement against suicide through vital, life-saving support, impactful, provocative campaigns and collective action.


Digging deeper than ever into their extensive music collections, they will be embarking on this free-flowing B2B journey from 12pm - 12am BST on Tuesday 30th March.  Anyone joining for the whole ride can expect their usual selection of brand new sounds and so much more besides, from stone cold classics to undiscovered gems across the ages, and nearly as many genres as you might find at the festival itself.
