Many thanks for bringing so much shine and positivity to Boom 2010!
Conditions At the Caravan Park
For the first time we had restaurants, water points and toilets at the caravan park.These are improvements compared with previous editions. Showers were not there as some trucks have these facilities. We opted not toput more showers on site as water is a scarce resource here and the more showers we have the bigger is our water footprint. Even so, forthe next edition we feel it's imperative to build showers at the caravan park and place it nearer the Boom venue.Sacred Fire
Art: The Most Art-Oriented Boom Ever
Boom has always been a festival of arts and this year we wanted to do the most art-oriented Boom ever, as art has the ability to open ourcreative portals *and connect us with a universal language of expression. We involved more people from the Boom team in finding the bestcolour codes, projects, artists and the finest materials.The notion of art was developed in many areas: bioconstruction (using bamboo, cane, clay, superadobe), land art, art installations, visuals,garden design, theatre, art gallery, performing arts, cinema showcase, to name just a few. In the end we had 780 artists at Boom and asense of open-air gallery was fully achieved.Some of the best feedback we got so far went to: the art installation made with trash from Shrine and the Gamelatron embedded in it; themagnificent Drop and the pristine Dow Tow; the Sacred Fire stage and its gardens; the Keynote statue and the holograms at the DanceTemple; the Art Gallery with an exquisite selection of visionary art; the crate structure at the Groovy Beach; the land art that was built bythe hands of Vicente Bittencourt. And, of course, the always-popular Kaleidoscope and its giant aquatic being! You can see some of theBoom art in our photo gallery on our website.Groovy Beach

At the time we opted to limit the number of attendees to revive the cosinessand the sense of belonging that have always been a part of Boom.
