The Boomtown Rats Isle of Wight Set-list

Boomtown Rats Isle of Wight

There has been an enormous amount of positive feedback regarding The Boomtown Rats performance and set-list played at the Isle of Wight Festival.

Interestingly, the youth of today have been hearing the band for the first time and they have been asking us for details of the set-list. The songs are just as relevant today as they were when first released.

We have therefore created a Spotify play-list of the songs from The Boomtown Rats Isle of Wight Festival set-list:
