“After four years without editing and to launch a new standard after 25 years of Boom we feel that we should do two consecutive editions, in 2022 and 2023”, reads the festival page.

The organisers of Boom Festival explain that the 2023 event “will take place from 20 to the 27 of July, crescent moon”, and stress that tickets will be available in the month of October.

Boom officials point out that, despite taking place in 2023, they do not intend to turn Boom into an annual festival.

“Boom does not intend to become annual. The new standard we want to implement is to perform edits in odd years (2023, 2025, and so on). We will follow the various phases of the moon, not specifically the full moon, and we will no longer be tied to the month of August, due to the effects of climate change and intensive agriculture in the region around Boomland.”

The 13th edition of the Boom Festival, which took place in Idanha-a-Nova, from the 22nd to the 29th of July, provided more than 430 hours of music, promoted 142 hours of conferences and 165 workshops and had 544 artists from various countries.

The organisation added that around 40,000 visitors visited Boomland, 15% of which were Portuguese.

The team that organized this edition involved more than 2,100 people from 59 nationalities.
