I hope you all had a great festival season and if not, had a great summer nevertheless!
I wanted to share this (unofficial) aftermovie of Boom Festival 2014, a biennial transformational festival in Portugal. The festival features music performances and a broad variety of visual art exhibits, much like the arguably more famous Burning Man.
The big difference between Burning Man and Boom Festival however is the location. While Burning Man is in the middle of the Nevada desert and Boom Festival in east-central Portugal, Portugal has decriminzalized all drugs across the board.
And while most people don’t have any problems with smuggling drugs across the security check points at festivals, at least at Boom Festival you’ll feel less paranoid and more at ease.
It’s too bad I only found out about Boom Festival a few weeks ago and will have to wait two years before I’ll finally be able to attend the festival. And while I can’t predict where I’ll be in the summer of 2016, I would love to be in Portugal, at Boom Festival!
See you there!
