We’re planning the layout of a caravan park within Boom Land – which we believe will help us to overcome and make up for one of the biggest criticisms that we received in 2010.
Back in 2010, we found ourselves moving the Boom site to a new location at the lake – and we only had three months to do it! The new location really was like a dream come true although at the same time, there were some fairly big issues that we had to deal with.
What a mission! The biggest challenge was transforming a site without any infrastructure – from land that had been used over the last 20 years for cowfarming, into a sustainable village with water, energy and art!
It took from May until August to install 15km of electric cables, 240,000 lt water tanks, 12 km of water tubes and internet connections. We built roadways, cleaned up the whole place, built showers as well as almost 180 composting toilets, the communal kitchen, campsite, solar power stations and everything else that comprises the whole festival infrastructure.
Time and the actual geophysics of the compound made it impossible to build a proper caravan park within the actual parameters of the festival venue itself. For those living within those parameters, everything was nice and comfortable. However, for those Boomers with caravans, the experience was much harder, which keeps breaking our hearts.
At this moment in time, we are seeking out the best location within the festival site to build a caravan park, and working out the most viable way to distribute water pipes and showers for caravans only.
We are fully committed to the new design to make sure your caravan stay at Boom 2012 will be a super-comfortable and hassle free experience. You are one of our main priorities. We’ll keep you posted on developments. With Love from the Boom Team!
