Boom Festival

Taking place around the shores of a stunning lake from 28 July until 4 August 2012 (right in the heart of the Portuguese countryside), Boom kicks off once again for its 9th biennial edition, celebrating 15 years of psychedelic culture!

Epic, beautiful, multi-sensory, overwhelming, eye-opening, creative, inspiring, stimulating, mesmerising, captivating, energising, invigorating... Activation for the mind-body-soul-spirit-senses... Such is Boom!

The festival has become a trajectory for mass interaction and the exchange of ideas and ingenious insights that contribute to the positive evolution of our world on multiple levels.

2012 is the year of the Maya and other prophecies that have depicted the shift in global consciousness. We are therefore happy to invite the awesome Daniel Pinchbeck, who will be giving a talk at the Liminal Village on just that. Nepali painter, Romio Shreshtha will also be joining us for a presentation on Tibetan enlightenment art while founder of MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies), Rick Doblin will give a special talk on the medicinal use of psychedelics.

Meanwhile, the Dance Temple line-up follows the sun as we take it from the top with twilight to progressive to nu-Goa to Goa trance and full-on, right the way to forest and dark... Check out the line-up for the Dance Temple right here: http://boomfestival....m/dance-temple/

This will of course be complimented by a sublime selection of progressive sounds from Alchemy Circle artists such as Grouch, Sensient, Hypogeo, Tom Cosm, Radioactive Cake, Extrawelt, Kaminanda and Two Fold amongst others... More info on Alchemy Circle line-up right here: http://boomfestival..../alchemycircle/

Psychedelicious vibrations abound, crossing the boundaries of sound... Experience it at the Ambient Source, the place to unwind, meditate and be at one with the music, the self and the spirits of nature... Ashirvad (aka Darren Sangita), Cosmosophy, Mimicof, Mixmaster Morris, Pineal and Organic Shapes, Samadhi and Hataken are key highlights. Check out details here: http://boomfestival..../ambientsource/

Come and join us for a phenomenal experience under the sun, the stars and a beautiful August full moon... Join the tribe for an incredible, awe-inspiring experience; bring your love, your energy, your art, your spirit and be part of Boom 2012!

Boom Festival

GREETINGS beautiful people and welcome to the very first e-festivals blog entry by the Boom Festival!

Many of the artists for some of the areas have already been booked while other areas continue to be developed as we go full swing into creative mode. It's a very, very exciting time behind the scenes right now as we anticipate the thousands of "Boomers" that will be converging around the infamous lake here in Portugal - and as we also begin to plan the epic-scale structures of the different stages that will be hosting so many of the artists, DJs, producers, performers, bands etc!

The fusion between structures, art, music and performance is gonna be epic... yeehaaa!

Over at the Dance Temple, we go back to the old school, crank up the volume and welcome home the truest pioneers of the Goa trance movement... From "Trip to Tranceylvania" to latest album "We Interface" - X-Dream have continued to evolve in the most mysterious ways... Older...? Yes. Madder? We’d say genius… Still as gutsy? Most definitely! They’ll rewind the classics and conjure up the magic with that psychedelic sound of yore … These guys will ROCK the dance floor, so you’d better make sure you’re on it when they do! In the meantime, have a bounce around yer living room (hehe!) to one of their most all-time classics: Our Own Happiness... Enjoy! ;-) ♥

Watch this space for more beats and pieces, including music treats, updates and all the latest info on the development of the Boom as we go full power into production and get ready for this year's Boom Festival!

LoVe Only
