Caravans & Cars

Do you want to bring your palace on wheels to Boom? Then you are most welcome!

Boom loves the nomadic traveller community - and vice versa too.

As travellers ourselves, we understand the joys and challenges of life on the road, so we’ve ensured that Boom is a caravan-friendly festival by providing spacious, well-equipped parking areas situated as close to the main areas as possible.

However, there are several conditions which need to be considered when driving large vehicles through the natural terrain. These are explained in the instructions below. Please read to ensure a fantastic Boom experience for one and all.

May Boom always be one of the favourite homes of the global nomadic community! One LoVe!

ORGANISATION OF CARS & CARAVANS: PARKING AT BOOM 2018

GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR CARAVANS

This information has been devised to improve your Boom experience, so please ensure you read the following instructions very carefully.

Instructions for a positive Boom:

  • Please recycle all rubbish at designated recycling points and get rid of trash in rubbish bins.

Note: Do NOT put human waste inside compost toilets. This means: no wet wipes, baby diapers (nappies), female hygiene products, cigarettes etc.

  • Please pour all wastewater/ greywater into the appropriate containers provided. Failure to do so will endanger the environment, the species that live within it and the well-being of those around you.
     
  • Do not pour wastewater in the compost toilets! Doing so will kill all microorganisms and disrupt the composting processes.
     
  • Please help us keep the Caravan and Camping areas clean, safe and fun by maintaining your area and looking out for each other’s possession. Make friends with your neighbours. Take care of each other. WE ARE ONE!
     
  • Trailer vehicles or small vans are allowed in Caravan Park B. Please be aware of tents around you to prevent accidents.
     
  • Pets are NOT allowed at Boom. You can choose to stay in Caravan Park B outside Boomland and keep your dog there on a leash to prevent dog fights.
     
  • Be mindful of trees, plants and tiniest forms of life. Do not disturb the likes of ants by planting your tent on their home! We can all have fun and still respect nature.
     
  • You will not be able to move your vehicle for the duration of the festival once it is parked at Caravan Park A, which is situated within Boomland.
GUIDELINES FOR CARAVAN PARK A
  • The Caravan Park A is a very limited space. Many other people will be using it too, so please do not occupy more space than you actually need.
     
  • Caravans are not permitted to leave Caravan Park A before 29 July. This is because people without vehicles must exit the festival first: SAFETY COMES FIRST.
     
  • No dogs allowed.
     
  • No sound systems allowed.
     
  • Shade structures: must be smaller than 10m2.
     
  • Any caravans parked outside the designated areas will be removed and turned into a recycled art installation!
     
  • Wastewater: MUST be collected in the containers provided. Please do not put wastewater into the ground or into a stream. This will endanger the environment and the general well-being of everyone around you.
     
  • The caravan parking space is a community environment. Say hello and have a cup of tea with your lovely neighbours, come together as one family, look out for each other and be mindful of each other’s possessions. Make sure you lock your things away and do not ever leave your caravan unlocked and unattended.
     
  • Motorcycles are not allowed inside Caravan Park A or inside the festival grounds.
     
  • It is strictly forbidden to make fire at Boom!
GUIDELINES FOR CARAVAN PARK B
  • You can move your caravan during the festival.

  • You can bring your dog but ONLY if you have the conditions to care for it inside your caravan / van.  The dog must stay inside the vehicle as this will prevent dog fights and attacks on fellow Boomers.

  • Feel free to set up your own camp but please be mindful of the limited space around you.

  • Any caravans not parked in designated areas will be removed and turned into recycled art installations!

  • Wastewater: MUST be collected in the containers provided. Please do not put wastewater into the ground or into a stream. This will endanger the environment and the general well-being of everyone around you.

  • Be aware of tents which may be pitched nearby. Test your brakes and never, ever put your caravan on a slope with tents below. This will prevent accidents and help keep your fellow Boomers safe.
     

GUIDELINES FOR CAR PARK
  • Boom Volunteers are there to guide you and help maintain the highest standards of safety. Please respect them and their guidance!

  • Do not pitch your tent in the car park! There is a camping area inside the festival. It is just a few minutes walk from the entrance gate.

  • No dogs allowed.

  • Do not park on roads and forbidden areas: your car will be immediately removed if you do so.

  • Please lock your car and watch out for your possessions and those of your neighbours.
