There are several ways of getting to Boom and it doesn’t need to cost the earth. Here, we have highlighted three options: Liftshare for those ready for a road trip; cycling for people up for an adventure, and bus for groups and individuals excited about sharing the journey with friends new and old.
Probably THE most convenient way of getting to Boom. Simply get to your Boom Bus Stop in Portugal, Spain, Switzerland or France, get on the bus and enjoy the luxury of getting transported straight to the festival.
It’s hassle-free, fun, cheap and prevents CO2 emissions.
ECO FACTS 2022:

Belgian Boomers Joost and Stan helped to kickstart the Boom by Bike project when they got in touch to say they planned to cycle to the festival.
It took them 40 days to cycle 2,700 km to get here, telling us on arrival: “Everyone should do this!”
Inspired by their positivity and sense of adventure, we took their word for it and launched Boom by Bike in 2010. It became another aspect of the festival’s ethos to promote a more conscious, ecological and fun way to get here.
Over the last decade, we have had the honour of documenting and sharing the stories of countless Boomers who felt inspired to bike it here too.
In 2022, we are proud to welcome bikers to the Boom Bike Village for the third edition running! Come along to enjoy an engaging program of inspiring talks and stories by cyclists from around the world.
