How do I buy a Boom Festival ticket?

Online tickets are sold out. Ambassador sales will start on the 19th of December. Please check the information available about Boom Ambassadors HERE or read the Ambassador FAQ's below.

Waiting in line

The platform ran like a ticket shop, and when you entered, you had to wait in a virtual queue. This measure was set to prevent the shop from being overloaded. This means that the ticket shop worked on a first come, first served basis.

How do I purchase services such as a Boom Bus ticket or a Tipi at the Wanbli Tipi Camp?

You have the option to order your Boom Bus Ticket and reserve your Tipi when you buy your Boom Festival ticket. Alternatively, please use the code that we email you to book these services at a later date.

When and how do I personalize my tickets?

Once you have completed your order, you will receive a confirmation email explaining how to personalise your ticket/s. The ticket personalisation must be done within a deadline which will be stipulated in the confirmation email. If the personalisation is not completed within the deadline, your tickets will be canceled, so make sure you do it in time.

No changes are allowed once tickets have been personalised!

Other Frequently Asked Questions

Are Boom tickets limited?

Yes, they are.


We believe that Boom should have a limited capacity in order to maintain a sense of familiarity, space and a sense of community that is inevitably lost with large crowds. At the same time, Boomland and its natural resources are limited. We as Boom Team don’t believe in unregulated growth as a factor to define success.

Children: Age Limits

Children under 13 years of age are granted free entrance into the festival. Yet, considering the very high temperatures, loud noise and high levels of dust, we recommend parents not to bring children under three years of age!

All children under the age of 13 traveling to Boom Festival with their parents will have to be registered online. The registration procedure will be identical as to the purchase of an adult ticket and will cost a total of of 1€. This means our security teams will easily locate and find those children who get lost from their parents. Child registrations / tickets will be available simultaneously with general tickets.

Ticket Name Changes

Ticket Name Changes are not allowed. Please check the Terms & Conditions.

Will there be tickets at the door?

If we are sold out prior to the event, there will be no tickets at the gates.
