A Pioneer Book
The “Boom Book” is a work developed along 2007 to mark the ten years of Boom Festival that had its first edition in 1997.
“Boom Book” is a cooperative project on a world scale, put together by anthropologists, journalists, designers, poets, photographers and illustrators. It is a book that brings to light some of Boom’s visionary initiatives but also explores the role of entertainment in a rapidly mutating society such as ours.
“Boom Book” is a manifest of independent culture and a contribution towards the deep rooting of a new philosophy of entertainment. It narrates the singular expressions that Boom has and the way it has been able to create a new perspective on the concept of festival. This book is a unique cultural contribution reflecting, through entertainment, the role of subcultures and social movements on modern society.
