The Boom Festival is an international music and culture festival near Alcafozes (map), in the municipality of Idanha-a-Nova (map), in Portugal.

The Boom Festival has an extremely beautiful setting, which offers unique views over the historic village of Monsanto (map) and is integrated within Geoparque Naturtejo – a zone which has been classified by UNESCO, due to its geological riches and valuable natural, historical and cultural heritage.

Boom Festival is a totally independent event that is proudly free of corporate sponsorship, state-funding or political affiliations. This biannual festival, held during full moon in August, is a singular event dedicated to independent and artistic culture. It includes performing arts, music, multimedia, painting, bio construction, theatre, cinema, conferences, workshops and installations.

Portuguese organisation, Good Mood Productions has been at the helm of the Boom Festival since its inception. The organisation became the first to introduce the Portuguese populace to the sounds of Goa trance and psy trance in the early 1990s.

The festival is considered the largest event of its kind in Europe every two years and by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the most famous transformational festivals in the world. A family-friendly, inclusive festival, it is carefully designed with families with babies to people with special needs in mind. The festival has been internationally recognised for its sustainability efforts.
