"The Boom Festival’s mission is to provide a unique and unforgettable experience where all participants are at one with nature while resonating with the art that is present, celebrating with likeminded people from around the world, respecting the environment and promoting critical capacity, education and knowledge. Cultural practice not only puts us in touch with beauty and celebration, but also inspires new ways of finding solutions to the problems affecting humanity and the Earth since the beginning of the 21st century. The Boom adheres to the principle of ‘thinking outside the box’, reflecting novel ways of expressing ourselves by unifying the alternative and psychedelic culture of the world. It is a weeklong experience away from dominant culture in the Portuguese sunny unspoilt nuclear-free lands. Boom’s multidisciplinary, mind-expanding program is constantly evolving.
Fare Trade - The world is at the peak of consumption and we at Boom support both small producers and local products to avoid the dictatorship of world trade organisations. We avoid big brands and opt instead to promote fair trade cola, local drinks and bio-products that are consciously created.
No Logos - Boom is, and always will be, completely free of corporate sponsorship and is funded by ticket sales alone. We are a corporation-free-driven festival, a zone of cognitive liberty that has grown organically by word of mouth. The Boom team dedicates its efforts to creating a parallel universe where you are the most important part. Make Change Happen."
