Now Playing Tracks



Back in 2013 we established a maximum population count based on our idea of a comfortable experience with enough water, toilets, food, shade and a low impact on the environment. It is and has always been our firm commitment to provide the best possible experience for all Boomers, and it is this commitment that inspired us to stop ticket sales once we reached the maximum carrying capacity for the land itself.

Boom values quality over quantity, and we would rather close ticket sales than create discomfort and inconvenience for tens of thousands of people coming from all corners of the globe. It is one of Boom’s principles not to turn into a mainstream festival, for we value the family spirit and the feeling of connection that can be created among Boomers when the festival is not overcrowded.

We are aware that a sold out event will prevent many people from buying that last-minute ticket at the door. We are truly sorry about that. It is as painful for us to say “no” as it must be for you to hear “no.” But it is our greater responsibility to enforce this limit.

Tickets have been available online since November 3RD 2013, and we have done everything in our power to ensure that everyone could experience Boom using whatever payment methods that are available: online tickets, Bitcoins, direct sales from 100 Boom Ambassadors in 50 countries. And each phase of ticket sales had multiple pricing systems (Regular Price, Social Price, Friendly Price, Guest Country) to make sure that economic difficulties would not prevent anyone from being part of Boom 2014.

Reaching full capacity is an amazing collective success and we must thank every single Boomer who is supporting this year’s edition. This has allowed the Boom Team to manifest the amazing beauty, creativity, love and technological mastery that is blooming all over Boom Land!
A sold out event also means that more and more new people are becoming aware of the existence of this independent culture nurturing alternatives to dominant culture. One of the Boom’s primary intentions is to spread new ideas like seeds, to begin to build a new social, cultural and ecological model.

In less than two weeks we will open the gates to all ticket holders and together we will make magic happen again!

But we will not forget about the rest of you who could not come.

We are, in our hearts, All One.

Your Boom Team

Healing Area: Chi Nei Tsang.

As you might know there’s a vast Healing Area at Boom Festival. The name is somewhat self-explaining, but exactly what happens there? Today we want to introduce one example: Chi Nei Tsang.

Based on the Taoist model, Chi Nei Tsang simultaneously heals the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual. It’s a hands-on practice, similar to a massage. The idea of Chi Nei Tsang is to harmonize the Qi, the natural energy that floats through the inner organs of our body. The practice stimulates the deepest internal structures of the human organism – it literally goes very deep, to the roots of various ailments. After a session the receiver often experiences a great sense of well being, grounding and spaciousness. Try it yourself at this year’s Boom Festival!

One of the reasons why we are limiting the amount of people at Boom is the imperative of comfort. This means we’re having more shade, more gardens and more seating places. We’ve been recycling and upcycling a lot of wood to make comfort zones using pieces such as this at #boomfestival #boom2014.

3333 Tickets Left

Dear Boomers,

Please keep in mind that there will be no tickets available at the gate of Boom 2014. If you want to join the gathering, you’ll have to get your ticket before the festival starts. The last opportunity to do so is to get one of the 3333 we are offering since the day before yesterday. They are available exclusively via our website - first come, first served!
