It is a festival dedicated to all free spirits. It is a celebration of intuition and telepathy where we witness a change in the way we communicate – eliminating the need for words.
Together, we have experienced the trance dance across some of the world’s most vibrant festivals, forests, beaches and parties: places where we’ve tuned in to the finest DJs and live acts and encountered the most invigorating vibes… In the process, we transformed ourselves, changing our attitudes and beliefs and the way in which we view the world.
Boom itself however, is more than just a sonic festival. It was spawned by the idea that our psychedelic experience can make a positive impact – not just in terms of our personal development, but also in terms of the universe around us.
Our thoughts, music, sculptures, paintings, clothes, films, photos, ideologies, experiences, communication, philosophies and much more enhance the possibilities of life and its experiences – and these are all magnetic energies that feed the ever-expanding nature of the Universe.
Boom was created to channel a cosmic message. It has embodied values such as peace, environmentalism, art, psychedelic culture, consciousness and love. In simple trance language it is simply, The Spirit of the Boom – and that spirit encompasses the true sense of interculturalism.
Back in 1997, a mere 3,500 enthusiasts converged in a pristine forest, transforming the Boom into a worldwide gathering that today resonates on a global scale with both the cybernetic and natural worlds.
Google analytics in fact, tell us that the Boom website (www.boomfestival.org) has been viewed by more than 1,200,000 people across 212 territories.
The 2008 edition witnessed an influx of 35,000 visitors from 85 countries. During the festival itself, close continuous and intimate contact is made between people from a spectrum of nationalities – allowing in the process, a more profound knowledge of the so-called “other.” It is therefore through such interpersonal relationships, discovered within an anti-status quo context, that we can begin to rid ourselves of the prejudices and stereotypes that pollute our perceptions.
The experience brings about a new awareness of the “differences” that we have been conditioned to believe in by the dominant cultural narrative – such as east versus west, or Christian versus Muslim.
