People go to great lengths to get experiences they love! Some undertake a two-week trip to arrive at Boom, carrying a wide array of vehicles and survival technologies. Others make a lifetime trip culminating in a gathering with some co-conspirators. Passion for living - that’s the essence of these moves.

 

Here is more Boom info for all passionate living beings. Be ready as we’ve switched on the channel for the next 12 months. This newsletter is not quite as deep as a trip to Boom, but strong experiences usually start smoothly…

 

 

Boom 2008 Dates Revealed

 

Earth dweller be it guided by the cosmopolitan superpowers, or living in a community or just living an Earth friendly life, you know what this means: the Boom dates. That’s the time for a break. Just having fun and celebrating life on a freestyle ethos.

 

Encompassed with the full moon of August 2008 we have tuned the following dates:

 

August 11: Gates opening - Welcome to Boom 2008!

August 12 - August 17: Boom 2008 in full swing.

August 18: Gates closing - See you in Boom 2010!

August 20: Boom after party…Utopia!

 

 

 

Boom's New Dimensions

 

Adventure! That’s the word to name it. Edition after edition Boom Festival likes to move forward and innovate, breaking all borders and established guidelines. We anticipate now three novelties for next Boom…

Expect a bigger input in new thinking paradigms with a major event associated with Boom. We will launch a pioneer festival called Reboot that will occur before Boom Festival.

Be sure that if you’re after the next big thing in the world of music, Boom will know it. There will be a new music area for diverse genres such as dubstep or minimal (no new rave nor mainstream music folks!).

To break lose the constraints of body-ego-centered-thinking we’ll launch a pioneer project to cross-pollinate performance arts. These arts will come alive throughout Boom in a countless series of multimedia productions, experimental theatre, dances, performance - based shows. We’ll interpret avant-garde shows with artists from around the globe.

The Boom Bus service will be held in order to help out all the people that want to come to the Boom directly from the airports. We’re also upgrading this service as the Boom Bus service is also a way for people to avoid carbon emissions. We suggest all people that want a pleasant Boom and a better environment to come to the gathering with the Boom Bus: it’s more ecological, comfortable, cheaper and safer.

 

 

 

The Boom Sustainable Adventure

 

You’ve seen it in 2006: many efforts being made in order to make Boom a sustainable festival. For next edition we’ll reinforce the projects: dry toilets, biological treatment of waters, solar energy panels and windmills. We are also developing a project for collecting vegetable oil from the local region to reuse in the Boom generators. Most of the Boom infrastructures will be made with biological or eco materials.

Keep an eye on your carbon footprint, change behaviors and attitudes for a better environment and use enjoy it wisely as you’re a Boom participant.

 

 

The Boom Book And The New DVD

 

Anticipating the next Boom, two projects will be released.

The “Boom Book” is a book made throughout the year of 2007. A masterpiece of art and culture celebrating Boom´s 10th anniversary. It’s a pioneering book designed in avant-garde visual style and full of in-depth contents. Written by artists, anthropologists, journalists and photographers reflecting the Boom experience and its place of visionary culture in today’s world. It’s the Boom contributions for the perspectives towards the present and future reality(ies).

The Boom DVD will be an outlook of Boom 2006. An introduction for next edition. It’s a synthesis of the spirit, an emotional and funny document that catches the familiar spirit of “We Are One”. A filmed message for the human consciousness.

I’m not a organizer just put this information

 

In last festival we just knew the line up a few weeks of the beginning of the festival

So you pay the entrance without knowing the line up?

 

 

This is not a good thing...

This is a really good thing.

Boom is The leading psytrance/artistic/spiritual gathering in the world, in my opinion !

Anyways, they always have really high quality line-ups anyways, and the fact that they don't announce the line-up early, makes the party 1000 times better, because it doesn't get commercial vibe..

People that go to Boom don't care that much about the line-up, because they go there to gather, to share, to be one with everybody else, and not to see all the biggest live acts in the same party.. If one want to see those crazy line-ups, he would be better at Full moon and such, but for people looking for a changing experience, for a place where he can learn/share and change his life, then Boom is the place ! :-)

It totally worth the trip !

I went in 2006, and i'm gonna be there in 2008 again for sure ! This event changed my life !

Boom is going Dubstep and Minimal!! Im glad they have an open mind since the full-on / psytrance thing is kind of shitty and boring music with no innovation at all.

Ah i think ill be there next year again :)

Since when going with the wave is open minded.

I really wished I could go to Boom this year, it would've been my first time.

But considering that I am from Romania, the cheapest plane ticket to Portugal was ~320EUR.. which is a LOT. I can't come up with those money :(

Anyone has a genius idea to get there cheaper? That would be awesome.

Hitchhiking :huh: From Denmark I would never be afraid to hitchhike to Portugal. From Romania don't know. Haven't tried.

 

Would be and adventure in itself I'm sure. I once saw a tv program about it. The deal was to get for free to Paris from Copenhagen in 24 hours. The guy made it in less than 20. Not paying a dime. Well, food, of course.
