Boom Book 20 Years Available

We've created a book for the 20th anniversary of Boom Festival.

Produced during 2017, we released one year later in 2018 a very special book that puts the 20 years of Boom into numbers, words and images 

Thus, we’ve collaborated with dozens of people to bring to the world the book Boom Festival 20 Years: A Visual and Oral History, a 356 page compilation of testimonies, photographs, flyer art imagery, and graphic design illustration.

The book tells the compelling story of Boom, starting with an essay comparing contemporary festival culture and the ancient rites of Eleusis, before leaping forward to the 21st century. Told from 134 different perspectives, Boom’s birth and growth are documented in three distinct chapters which bring a deeper sense of context for each period: 1997-2000; 2002-2008; and 2010-today. The whole is illustrated by exclusive photographs, some of which have never been published before.

We’ve created a microsite where you’ll find a glimpse of the book and additional information about it. There you will also find the information you need if you wish to purchase it.

As these words echo around the world, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the fantastic support that you have given us.
