Boom is known as a Festival with a strong focus on art and creativity, and this year the restaurants area is also embedded within the arts program, in the newly re-designed Central Plaza.
This is one of the main meeting points of the Boom, encompassing the Restaurants Area, Info Stand and the new CENTRAL PLAZA STAGE where you can sit back surrounded by beautiful tall trees and carefully crafted land art. Here you can watch amazing Live Art Performances from all over the world and Open Sessions fully dedicated to the Boomers, who now have the chance to share poetry, narrative, information and personal views.
Step out from the campsite and make yourself at home in the dining and living room of the Boom!
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE DIFFERENT POSSIBILITIES:
OPEN STAGE NIGHT
The stage is yours for 10 minutes, to host your skills and creativity: performance, dance, acrobatics, juggling, games, music, you name it!
When you register at the Info Stand upon arrival at the festival, you can also bring a CD or pen drive featuring background music if you need it. One microphone is available, as well as a simple light set up.
Please also note: this is not a space for DJs.
An account or recital of an event or a series of events, either true or fictitious.
Everyone has a story to tell, a message to spread; whether it is uplifting, inspiring or bizarre.
Come on stage (for ten minutes) to tell about an event, or a series of events that occurred to you or that you just invented!
This is a participatory event where the audience is free to affect the path of the session. The audience is the performer and the performer is the audience.
Overcome your fears, you are among friends! Express yourself, lose yourself, be yourself!
