    HOW TO GET TODIRECTIONS:PUBL IC TRANSPORTFROM LISBON AIRPORTBy Train: Take the Metro to Gare do Oriente station and catch a train to Castelo Branco. By Bus: Take the Metro to Sete Rios bus station and catch a bus directly to Castelo Branco.

    From the train and bus station in Castelo Branco hop on the shuttle bus service straight to the festival (on the 1st and 2nd days). Or get a local bus to Idanha-a-Nova. Or share a taxi to the festival. (Approx Price?)

    Note: There are shuttle buses from Boom to Castelo Branco on the last day of the festival.

    Please refer to the bus station website (www.rede-expressos.pt) and train station website (www.cp.pt) for departure times, costs and further information.

    DRIVINGFROM LISBONTake the A1 motorway, exit to A23, direction Torres Novas. Continue direction Castelo Branco along the A23. Exit at Lardosa / Idanha-a-Nova. Follow the signs to Espanha and Idanha-a-Nova. In Idanha-a-Nova you will reach a roundabout displaying signs to the Boom Festival.

    FROM MADRIDTake the A5 motorway, direction Placencia and Portugal. Take the A1, direction Placencia and follow the signs for the Ex-108 to Coria/Portugal. Continue following signs to Portugal. As you enter the country you will see signs to Idanha-a-Nova. In Idanha-a-Nova you will reach a roundabout displaying signs to the Boom Festival.

    FROM OPORTOTake the A1 motorway, direction Lisboa until you reach signs for the A25, direction Viseu. Drive to A23, direction Covilh and Castelo Branco. Follow the signs to Idanha-a-Nova. In Idanha-a-Nova you will reach a roundabout displaying signs to the Boom Festival.

    CAR POOLINGWeve created a simple and effective way to connect people heading to Boom by car. If you would like to give or take a lift, then please find details right here: www.boomfestival.liftshare.com

    I f you come by car/caravan: The possibility of queues is high, even if the Boom Logistics Team work hard at reducing them. Please make sure you have plenty of food and drinks (especially water) with you. And If you come by caravan, make sure you empty your waste water tank before arriving at the festival! And remember: getting in is part of the adventure!

    BUS Info LEarning some basic PortugueseAround 220 million people in the world speak Portuguese. Going to Boom is a good opportunity to improve the seventh most spoken language in the world.

    The majority of young people in Portugal speak fluent English or Spanish. While older people in small villages do not speak English, though they sometimes speak French or Spanish.

    It would be a good idea to

    learn a few words in Portuguese in case you need to ask for directions

    or advice.

    The Boom Bus is a charter bus service for a safer, more comfortable and sustainable Boom experience. It is part of our environmental program as a public transport project, aiming to decrease CO2 emissions.

    This service provides transport from Lisbon and Madrid directly to the festival and possible connection with the After Boom. In 2012 we transported more than 5.000 boomers and everybody had a great experience.

    There are also connections from France, Switzerland and Belgium offered from our official partner. You can get more info regarding departure cities, timetables and prices and get your trip tickets for these countries HERE.

    Similarly to the last edition, the Boom Bus will get into the Boom venue one day before the official gates opening: youll be able to choose the best place to camp and have some relaxing moments around the lake, enjoying the sculptural and unspoilt landscape of inland Portugal.

    Good news? Besides all the comfort of travelling with our psy buses, our Bus tickets prices will remain the same during all sales phases. Check out our prices for round trips, departure places and timetables.

    Boom Bus tickets can be bought online or in some of our ambassadors. Sales finish on 26th June 2014, so from that date onwards you cant buy more bus trips, just on festival ground for return tickets.

    one way TicketsOnline and at your local ambassador you can only purchase return tickets (both ways). At the festival you will be able to purchase one way tickets to Lisbon Airport, Madrid Airport, as well as Utopia Boom Landing connections.

    Ch i ldrenChildren older than 3 must purchase a bus ticket, as they will use a seat. We will provide proper seats for all children that are traveling with our psy buses.In case of doubt contact us to our infoline +351 277 201 052 or send us an email to boombus@boomfestival.org or etickets@boomfestival.org.

    EAT WEL LFor all food types there are plenty of options at Boom: from raw and veggie to Asian, Middle &BTUFSO.FEJUFSSBOFBOZPVOBNFJU*UJTmandatory for restaurants to have affordable prices. Conscious food stalls are predominant at Boom. We ask restaurants to opt for local, organic ingredients and it is mandatory to use bio-degradable dishes and cutlery.

    ENJOY THE LAKE !Swimming in the Boom lake is one of the best things you can do during the hot Boom days! Forgot your bikini? Strip off and dive in! Swimming naked, or skinny dipping, is allowed and encouraged!

    But be careful, there can be strong currents in the lake, do not swim out too far! And be mindful: do not piss or shit in the lake! Use the compost toilets and contribute to producing soil for a more fertile Earth!

    Note: The lake water quality is monitored on a daily basis by legal institutions, but it is not drinking water!

    TAKE CARE OF OTHERS

    Be kind and generous with other Boomers and look out for those who may need help: whether they are lost, sleeping under the sun, in need of medical attention or having a difficult experiences (see Kosmicare info).

    RESPECT THE LOCALSLife outside of Boom moves at a slow pace. The local population is elderly and many of them speak Portuguese only. Please be mindful and respectful of UIFMPDBMTXIFOZPVBSFUSBWFMMJOHJOUIFBSFB)BWJOHa good relationship with the locals is fundamental for the continuation of the festival!

    SLEEPYou may not want to miss a thing, however the experienced festival-goer will tell you that youll enjoy the festival even more if you get at least 8 hours/day of sleep. Be aware that days can be hot and a proper overnight sleep is a biological need!

    DONT PARTY HARD TOO EARLY

    The Boom is a weeklong experience, you have plenty of time to have fun and celebrate. Dont peak too early, enjoy the middle way and never surpass your limits. Respect yourself and those around you: act consciously!

    BE HYDRATED- DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. Pour water over head, forehead or neck to cool down your temperature.- Dont fall asleep in the sun. You could burn your skin and become dangerously dehydrated.- Keep skin clean and protected from the sun, by wiping the dust and hydrating with sun lotion and lip balm (especially for those with a skin condition). Alternative remedies for sun protection include Belladonna 30c, a homeopathic remedy that can help with dry, red-hot, throbbing skin or sunstroke.

    DRINK WATERThere are many drinking water taps all across the festival site: always bring a refill container and stay hydrated. Drinkable water from the taps comes from the public grid and undergoes daily analysis of its quality. Water is life, please use it wisely.

  • THEFT In any large gathering theft can happen anytime, anywhere. Be mindful of your belongings, keep them safe and look out for each other. Never leave valuables in your tent. Read below for more details. Report any suspicious activity at the Info Stand.

    KEEP ING YOUR VALUABLES SAFE

    -PDLFST If you have valuables such as documents, credit cards, cameras or other electronic equipment that you would like to keep TBGFMFBWFUIFNJOUIF*OGP4UBOE$FOUSBM1MB[B Use a waist-bag, where you can keep cash and credit card, always keep it with you!(FUGBNJMJBSXJUIZPVSOFJHICPSTBOENFNCFSTof the security team that patrol the area.

    NO F IRES ! Considering the high

    temperature and the dryness of the terrain, THERE IS A VERY

    HIGH RISK OF FIRE ON THE BOOM LAND, so the following

    rules are to be carefully respected by every single

    Boomer. ##2TDBNQSFTDBNQJOH

    stoves are not allowed anywhere outside the

    community kitchen at the camping area. There are two community kitchens in the camping area, built for this

    purpose. $BOEMFTCVSOJOHJODFOTF

    and any similar fire device are strictly prohibited all across the Boom land and its surroundings

    (including Caravan Park B)!!!If you need contact with fire,

    remember that at Sacred Fire a big flame is always burning, so

    please opt to go there!,OPXXIFSFUIFSF

    extinguishers are!*GZPVTFFBOZPOFEJTSFTQFDUJOHthese rules, please gently try to convince him/her to extinguish

    the fire and if that is not complied, seek assistance from security or

    firemen (check map for Firemen- Bombeiros- location).

    SCORP IONSThere are no lethal scorpions on site, though a smaller type of scorpion (known in Portuguese as lacrau) can show up in this region. The sting can be quite painful, at least for the first few hours. Seek immediate medical attention to prevent swelling and further pain (see below our note on the Boom Medical Service). Be careful when moving stones and rocks as these are the places where they like to hide. Also make a habit of checking the inside of your shoes before putting them on, especially at night. They are a gentle species so please respect them!

    HARMFUL BACTER IAThe hot climate and the presence of people from all over the world can make the perfect environment for these organisms to thrive! To minimise the risk of bacteria please wash your hands regularly with soap, especially after using the toilets and before eating (use water taps provided with soap near all toilets). Drink plenty of water and stay in the shade. It is also important that you dont shit or piss outside the toilets, as this might contribute to the spreading of bacteria!

    EAR PLUGS Loud music can be harmful for your ears! Even if the sound systems we use at Boom are of the highest quality, we recommend that when ZPVBSFPOUIFEBODFPPSTZPVVTFFBSQMVHTOverexposure to high decibels can create long term damage!

    BOOM MEDICAL SERVICE The Boom Medical Team has over 20 years experience with working at festivals. Members of staff are helpful and friendly and the service is open 24h. Go to the Med Team (see map for location) for dehydration, sunstroke, serious stomach problems, wounds and lacerations, painful or swollen insect bites or any other health condition you might experience. But remember that the best cure is always prevention! If you follow the guidelines contained in this booklet you will avoid finding yourself in need for medical service!

    F IREMENFiremen service is available 24h, check Boom Land for location.

    Security at Boom is friendly and helpful. They patrol each area of the festival including camping and caravanpark. Respect their advice and seek their assistance in case of need.Remember that for any emergency you can go to the info stand.

We believe the well being of each individual is vital to the well being of the whole. Kosmicare Team member.

    Substances are not legal in Portugal, although due to the Portuguese EFDSJNJOBMJ[BUJPOMBXTQSPKFDUTGPSrisk minimisation (such as Kosmicare) are allowed. Kosmicare is a pioneer project that started at Boom in 2002.

    Kosmicare is a collaborative project between several entities such as Boom Festival, MAPS, Universidade Catolica do Porto and several governmental institutions such as SICAD.

    At Kosmicare you can find a team of multi-lingual volunteers (including psychologists, psychotherapists, mental health assistants, medics and fellow Boomers), ready to assist you with the following:"EWJDFPOEBNBHFQSFWFOUJPO3JTLNJOJNJ[BUJPOBOEIBSNreduction: information and support, healthcare, substance testing.4VQQPSUJODBTFPGDIBMMFOHJOHexperiences.

    IDANHA-A-NOVA: THE NEAREST TOWN

    Its the nearest town to Boom Festival (18 km) where all basic commodities are available (ATM, supermarket, shops, etc.). Its difficult to pinpoint its origins but its assumed that the construction of the castle in 1187 by the Templar Knights is a landmark. Presently, in this region the ancient and the contemporary live in harmony.

    IDANHA-A-VELHA : THE NEAREST VI L LAGEIdanha-a-Velha is an BNB[JOHMZCFBVUJGVMUJOZWJMMBHFjust a couple of km from the Boom Land. It is considered one of the oldest villages in Portugal (about 2000 years old!) where Lusitanos, Romans, Moors, Celts, Visigoths and

    Templar Knights have all left a trace of their presence: the cathedral with the biggest collection

    of Roman inscriptions of the Iberian peninsula, the ruins of the ancient walls, the tower of the Templars and the ruins of a roman temple dedicated to Venus are the backdrop to the simple life of the small Portuguese population living here.

    MONSANTO: THE MUST-SEE

    If you have the chance to visit only one place outside of Boom, make sure this is Monsanto! Nestled on top of an ancient vulcano (758 mt- 18 km from Boom), towering over the whole region (it is the mountain that can be seen even from the Boom Land), this village will surprise even the most experienced traveler! The characteristic round giant stones have, since the

    Paleolithic offered shelter to the local population, which has devised the most surprising ways to build houses around them! And a walk to the fortress on the top of the mountain at sunset will be just as unforgettable as a night in UIFEBODFPPS.POTBOUPIBTa unique mystic to itself, some say it is the closest to being in )BNQJ*OEJBZPVMMFWFSHFUJOEurope!

    PENHA GARC IA : THE TR I LOB I TES TOWN

    Penha Garcia (30 km from Boom) impresses for the majesty of its position towering over a breath-taking valley famous for the rich presence of 480 million year old trilobites fossils. Penha Garcia was an ancient fortress and from the top of the town you can observe the valley with the river Ponsul, its ancient mills (also visitable), waterfalls and a very fresh natural swimming pool (a must-see!!!).

    Boom Festival takes place in a region of Portugal extremely rich with ancient culture and natural wonders.

    The region around Boom is one of the most remote and well preserved areas in Southern Europe. A place where history seems to have its own rhythm and where tradition intermingles with nature.
