After Hacker Attack – Boom Festival presale starts again on 20 November

This post is also available in: deGerman

Bad luck for everyone, who tried during the last weeks to get one of the limited tickets for the Boom Festival 2018. A cyber attack at the end of October has turned the online ticket sale on the Boom Festival website into a chaos. That’s how the festival organizers describe the circumstances on their website. The Boom festival crew has turned down the homepage and froze the tickets.

“Such an attack did not allow the users to normally register into the platform to acquire their festival tickets, which obviously resulted in an inconvenience for the users as well as for the festival itself – an event which cannot and should not be tolerated due to its criminal nature“, the organizers explain. A criminal complaint has been launched already at the court of Castello Branco in Portugal.

Already 11,467 Boomers from 111 countries and territories confirmed

The good news: The Boom Festival crew is working intensively to solve the problem. The website is supposed to be up and running again on the 20th of November. “We are happy to announce, that the platform for online ticket sales will be up and running from the 20th of November at 9 a.m (Portuguese time)“, the Boom Festival crew wrote a few days ago on their Webpage. At this date, the sale of phase two tickets for the Boom Festival 2018, to be held in Idanha-a-Nova in Portugal from the 22nd until the 27th of July, is supposed to continue and the sale of the Ambassador tickets about to start.

“A total of 4,000 were sold as online phase one tickets. There will be a further 3,500 tickets available at a Friendly Price, when Ambassador sales begin“. This will equate to a total of 7,500 phase one tickets“, the Boom Festival Crew says about the status of the ticket sale. „Regarding facts and figures, so far we have confirmed 11,467 Boomers from 111 countries and territories.“

A lot of Boomers express concerns about ticket sale in social media networks

The cyber attacks put a damper on hundreds of Boomers’ anticipation. A lot of them posted their concerns in social media networks. Some were complaining about not having received the tickets, that they had paid for.

The Boom Festival crew promised to check each case individually and personally. But they also asked for patience concerning the high number of received emails from ticket buyers. “From the very beginning, we have been reading everything that has been posted on the social media networks, listening to your calls and we deeply resonate with your frustrations. Our heart is with you and our commitment to you is to be present for any help you might need“, they assure. “We feel very grateful for your patience and to all those of you who sent us messages of support throughout these past weeks. You are an amazing community of human beings!“

For all those, who want to be part of the Boom Festival 2018: Be sure to keep an eye on the start of the restart of the ticket sale. As the festival crew points out on their website: “In 2016 Boom sold out in 34 days.“

Qual é a diferença entre um país que dispensa o conhecimento científico e valoriza a exploração de combustíveis fósseis com uma potência mundial norte-americana que fez o mesmo perante a ciência e Acordo de Paris? Nenhuma. Como pode um país com quase 900 anos de história valorizar mais interesses de empresas que colocam em risco o que a natureza levou milhões de anos a construir (ex: papeleiras e poluição no Tejo; inúmeros projetos PIN no litoral; o furo de Aljezur; entre tantos outros casos)? Como se pode atentar contra o património natural de Portugal (nomeadamente a beleza costeira e o mar), um dos elementos culturais mais valorizados pela população? Num país onde o turismo vale 7% da economia, muito dele associado à fruição do mar e da costa, é compreensível que se deite tudo a perder com a autorização para prospecção de petróleo em Aljezur de 16 de Maio?
A informação sobre a potencial exploração é pública e nada vantajosa quando comparada com o impacto extremamente negativo que pode ter sobre outras atividades, a biodiversidade e o bem estar da população. Portugal inicia em 2018 uma política energética do séc.XIX, um anacronismo gritante, num dos países da Europa com maior disponibilidade de radiação solar (número médio anual de horas de Sol varia entre 2.200 e 3.000). Em 2017 perdemos muito com os incêndios na terra, ontem começámos a perder o país no mar.

Hey Boom, what will happen if tickets are again not personalized after being sold during the second phase of sales? Also, if my ticket was not personalized during the first phase, do I have to re-enter it for the second phase, or will this happen automatically? Finally, it would be good to receive an email confirming that our tickets are actually being taken into account for the resale. When I filled in the form for the first phase, I got no email confirmation (I guess that everybody was in the same case?), so how can I know if there was not a crash in the system?

It's really chutzpah that I filled out an application form four times to return a card and suddenly you send me the wrong details and my card is not for sale !!!! You would have known in advance that something was wrong !!! I want to go back to me and say what's wrong because I want the money back and I'm not going to give up !!!!

Nooooo.. Sacred fire is the best place to be in silence, just observing and feeling... Boomers Council might be a good idea, but not in Sacred Fire... 😞

How do i buy an extra ticket? My mum wants to join me and my family?

Laclem En Tine Camille can't wait !!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
