Our Most Stunning Photos of Boom Festival, Portugal

Boom Festival - Featured Image

In 2016, we went to our first festival outside of the UK (the first of many more to come) and, we’ve finally had a chance to go through the hundreds of photos we took during the week.

Boom Festival is a biennial psychedelic music and arts festival in Portugal. It usually takes place during the full moon at the end of July or early August.

We were incredibly lucky to be at this festival with a wonderful group of friends. If you’ve never been before then hopefully you’ll be tempted after this post.

These are our favourite photos from the festival.

Lake Idanha-a-Nova provides a beautiful setting for the festival

…Boom Festival was a completely different world at night

This festival is a 24-hour event, the music at the main stages goes on all night. Just wandering around after dark, the sights and sounds were just as immersive and so much more fun (and of course, easier to enjoy without the blistering heat!)

Shamanism played a central role

Shamanism was the theme of the 2016 festival. This art installation was near the central plaza and main music stage and was a great meeting point.
