If you don’t have a ticket, please don’t come to Boom. That’s a bummer, but please: Let us explain.
Boom 2014 is sold out. Now that’s a bummer – for those who wanted to join the festival but who don’t have a ticket yet. And, please believe us: Also for us, the team.
Yes, we knew there was the possibility this could happen. However, we regarded this possibility to be very, very little. The increase of popularity we are experiencing for this edition is simply overwhelming.
The decision to limit the size and to close the ticket sale wasn’t easy, we had a really hard time making it. However, we are still convinced that this was the only right decision. Why? Please read the statement we published already some time ago.
There’s yet another scenario that worries us. The scenario of hundreds, maybe even thousands of people gathering outside the festival. It worries us because the local authorities and also the people who live in the region would not be happy to see this happening. Ultimately this scenario could be a risk for the existence of the festival as a whole, because good relations with the locals and the authorities are vital.
If you don’t have a ticket for Boom 2014, please don’t come to the festival. Yes, that’s another bummer. But we just explained why we kindly ask you to do so, and we hope for your understanding. If you like Boom, if would love to be a part of it, but if you don’t have a ticket this year – please make the best of the summer somewhere else.
If you already planned your trip to Portugal, maybe you even have a flight – it’s not that bad after all. It’s a beautiful country with a guarantee for warm summer days, with lots and lots of pristine beaches, the wild beauty of its hinterland, the urban laid-backness of Lisbon, and some absolutely splendid food. So why not explore one of these aspects of Portugal if you didn’t get a ticket for Boom? For sure you will meet other travellers, and for sure you will have a great time.
Once again: A big, big SORRY for those who don’t have a ticket. We really hope for your understanding of what we explained above.
