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

You can try if this page is also available in: German


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.“

Boom Cheer

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.“

When will we be getting refunded for our tickets you resold ?

Wondering when I will be refunded for the 3 tickets I purchased that you have resold

I have learnt valuable and life changing lessons at Boom!

whats about the ticket refunds? boom was really nice but still many peoples waiting for their refund!!! it looks like u made much much money this year. not even an answer u can give Boom Festival Official

We can only wish to stay in that Devine, free and full of love state of mind like we all had in boom!! I would totally change my life as well 🦋🎶💜

hello people and boom, we could not enjoy the boom because we had to sell the tickets, we did it correctly as indicated by the platform and we still have not received the money back. we have an email that tells us that we would have it as late as the last week of July and it has not been like that. I write this here because I have already sent many e-mails and they do not respond. Thank you

Please please dear boomer's djs musicians and artists say something in your concerts and performances about the stupidity of oil exploitation in Portugal to help the stop of it! Thank you!

hi my boom was excellent but on the 29th all my belongs got stolen. I had an important external hard drive with all work i ve been doing. that may not make any difference for who toke it. if they could send me back on anonymous would be great. or if anyone saw it. one is a white hard drive and my name was wrote Flowaa (this brand and this colour) thank you so much, obrigada

hello people, Im looking to contact a guy called George from Romania, he was there with his sweet girlfriend and another guy, all living in Amsterdam. We met at Ace Ventura and had a nice connection, also after having a great time around the lake with more friends. As it goes at boom sometimes we lost each other later. So George, if you read this than lemme know! Peace and love Diederik Gerritsen

poor guys you not making enough money you need to make money out of people by stealing our refunded tickets? you guys are proper slaves of the system.

Thanks you all for everything, much love Boom ❤️

I miss you Boom 😔

The (lala)land we are all looking for!

I love you boom, I love you so much <3

A real dream

Será que se fizer uma publicação por dia a relembra-vos que ainda não me pagaram vai surtir efeito? O vosso festival até pode ser muito bom mas não o façam com o dinheiro de quem não pode ir e a quem prometeram devolve-lo

😍

What kind of joke is that ??

What kind of joke is that ??

Obrigado Boom! 🙏💙

What’s kind of joke is that ??

Boom of conclusions 🙏🏼

One love xc

Dear Boomers,

Thank you for bringing your amazing vibes and energy to the 12th edition of Boom Festival!

As the dust begins to settle, we all reflect on our collective experience and on how to take the spirit of Boom back home and apply it to our everyday lives.

It goes without saying that Boom would not be what it is without the creative spirit that Boomers bring to the festival.

It would also not be made possible without the love and energy dedicated by workers, volunteers, catering crews, artists, stewards, eco-teams,facilitators and therapists, designers, and all those who helped the production and the build of this psychedelic city. MUITO OBRIGADO, THANK YOU SO MUCH!

In the meantime, we hope you are all having a smooth transition and have returned home feeling energetic, vibrant and full of inspiration and creativity in order to cultivate freedom and love wherever you are.

See you all in 2020 for yet another epic edition of oneness and love.

With Love and Gratitude,
Yours Boom Team

THANK YOU!! For an amazing experience! 😍🙏🏼 This was my first psytrance festival ever, i’ve come all the way from Denmark, and this may have been the sickest week in my life. I was surprised of how happy and kind everyone was to each other! Maybe the biggest experience of them all 😍 See you at Boom 2020!

BOOM IS THE BEST ❤❤❤ brilliant staff/security/spotless toilets, beautiful smiles all round, fantastic music ... the list is endless ❤❤❤❤❤

Thank YOU again guys 🙏🙌 Boom spirit never disapoints ❤️ all the love and energy shared in that land during that week is something really special and heartwarming ❤️ and all the amazing people there makes it a mindblowing experience 🙏 keep doing what you do...and we will keep coming back for more 💕 see you in 2years for another amazing journey 🤞🙏 love to you all ❤️

That was a decades memories and happiness given in 7 day... first boom, solo traveller, but was never solo in Boomland !!

My first festival in the sand and the choice of boom was excellent Thank you for seven days of happiness and love Thank you Boom You made me the summer in the most beautiful and correct way I can be

Thank YOUUUUUUU!!!!!! 💓🌈 You make come true an unimaginable experience! It's amazing what you do! In every way! I didn't know what Boom was... Now...I know it's possible! I'm going to do my best to keep it alive, wherever I go! Thank you! 🙏💜💛💚❤💙

Thanks Boom for a totally AWESOME time, made a few new mates along the way as well! Laughed my ass of everyday as well, and everyone was so nice to talk to! See you again Boom! 😉

O Boom & Boomland & Boomers... how I love you! A love Boomerang that brings back memories when you need them the most ♥️♥️♥️♥️

Thank you Boom and fellow Boomers for this life time experience. I was robbed of my important belongings including my only Debit Card on the last day while I was sleeping under the white tent near the lake, however the over all experience surpasses this only negative. I am safe back home now and I wish now that my robber could make good use of my belongings. Love, life and Spirit to all of you. ❤️

Thousands of thank you, great Boom!!! It was something absolutely special. If God there is, he was with us these days. DJs are true shamans our times, who as doctors with magic music treated us. I cry few times per day from happiness and from awareness of the absolutely important things that I discovered with you my lovely Boom!!!!!!!

Thank you Boom Team and all involved in the production and creation of this amazing week of oneness! :D Again, it was an unique experience at all levels... Keep it up and alive! Bring back Function One! We miss it! :D

Thank you Boom for this amazing week. My fifth edition (2004 was my first) and you just keep getting better. Learning from mistakes. Working forward. Creating new solutions and creative places and activities. And keeping the spirit through all the festival and all workers. I'm amazed that all workers stayed so happy all through the week in the heat with a big smile and friendly words. Cudos and great work! I hope those who are still there are ok and be careful in the upcoming heat explosion. Damn we where lucky with the dates! This was the "coldest" Boom for me so far. To next Boom if be happy if you manage to fix some more toilets and showers. And some walking paths through the camping sites would be a dream since everyone is so desperate to get a spot that no one thinks of leaving a place to walk. Ending up with everyone falling on each other's tent strings and everyone getting annoyed at each other. 😂 It's clear that we all need some guidance in this issue. See you next Boom Thanks again ❤️

My first time on Boom and i believe that change many things on my life, me most important was the ability to speak from my heart and quiet my mind. Everything is easy on BoomLand but when you arrive to normal life appear a feeling of aloneness. Why? Today i would like a conscious tantra healing hug and i was looking around and no one is there. So i'm looking for non-judgmental heart connected conscious tantra boomers around Lisbon and Algarve for sharing the mood. 🙏❤️💫

Boom never disappoints! I always leave boom vibrating at the highest possible frequency, filled with love and passion and recharged to yet again face the realities of life in the real world...💗🌼

many thanks and respect for this wonderful festival! it's like MAGIC .... Unfortunately, I saw two dogs in the heat in cars at the Caming Area and I do not understand how to do such a thing. There were also two dogs on the boom area! Please forbids that !!! It hurt a lot because there is not the right place for dogs! Thanks for all 🙏🏻

boomafter effect language is just asound just like John L said i may say I'm a dreamer But I'm not the only one I hope some day you'll join us And the world will be as one BOOMFESTIVAL 🙏🙏namaste🙏 !!

Hello everyone, it was our 6th boomfest and as each edition it was wonderful with so much good cheer and love. With this sound quality and this revered programming. A big thank you to the organization for the care it brings to the decoration and the atmosphere. We felt your passion and the desire to satisfy the boomers. On the other hand, I can not help but to express my sadness about the negligence of some boomers concerning waste (cigarette, plastic bottle, can ...) left on the site throughout the festival. A lack of self-management has been strongly felt this year (what would be the cause compared to other editions?). I wonder ... too many people? many "new" boomers? the boom victim of its success? I do not know what to think but I would like to share on this subject with you. Thanks to all the volunteers without whom the site would have been in a bad state. For the sake of Trance. With love.

Lexmy Chiel Teun! ons heerlijke moment met z'n viertjes is besttttt wel OK vastgelegd! 😍

Britt Poeya Julio laten we een waar is wally doen... Waar is Poeya?! 😀
