The Boom Festival is a biennial festival which takes place in Portugal. The festival features music, paint, sculpture, video art, installations cinema, theater and a concept of crosspollination of different art forms.

The first Boom Festival happened in 1997 with a large influence on electronic music, but nowadays Boom is a multidisciplinary event.

Initially a psytrance festival, the first Boom had two stages: a dance floor, and a chillout area. Boom now incorporates a 'Sacred Fire' stage, for world music, acoustic sets and live bands, and 2008's Boom debuted the 'Groovy Beach', a stage for contemporary genres of electronic music, including Dubstep, Breakbeat, Techno and Minimal.

As well as expanding musically, Boom also encouraged different media to flourish, including an art gallery, natural sculpture, street theatre, fire-dancing, and the Liminal Village contains a large shaded space housing lectures, yoga, films, meditation and discussions.
