You can only by tickets in advance.
Included in your ticket: The access to two dance-floors, all workshops, the camping-sites, toilets, showers and lots of fun!
Children till 12 years have free entrance to the festival.
Worst-case scenario, you’ll get your money back, if we have to cancel the festival again due to COVID-19. We will keep you updated!
Upon arriving at the festival, go to the entrance to get your ‘COVID-19 free zone bracelet’. For those who come by car, go to the parking lot first and come to the festival entrance next! As soon as you have your bracelet, you can start setting up your tent. One of the most wonderful weekends of the year can start :D!
The campsite is a COVID-19 free zone too. So you need a bracelet to enter the campsite. There will be two campsites:
- Next to the entrance there’s a campsite for tents only
- The second campsite is located a bit further away and is called ‘the quiet campsite’. At this campsite it’s allowed to park your car next to your tent.
We will open the campsite on Wednesday August 25 at 16h00.
FESTIVAL GROUNDS & FOOD
There will be a first gig Wednesday evening for the true Boombalfestival lovers ;). The festival grounds will open at 18h00. Guus Herremans and Aurélien Claranbaux will be playing at 20h30. You’ll be able to meet some friends, dance and grab a bite to eat (French fries, will be the only food truck that evening and it will close at 21h00).
- Only those with a Thursday ticket or a weekend pass and a ‘COVID-19 free zone bracelet’ will get access to the festival grounds on Wednesday.
- Bear in mind, we won’t have a COVID-19 test centre yet on Wednesday! In other words, you won’t be able to take a rapid COVID-19 antigen test at the festival site on Wednesday. So… come prepared if you want to enjoy the Wednesday gig!
The campsite will open at 12h00 (midday) on Thursday and will remain open until Monday 30 August, 12h00 (midday). The festival grounds will open at 14h00 that day. It will then be up to you to choose the best spot to dance, find the nicest place in the shadow, drink a nice Belgian beer, and most of all, enjoy seeing each other again after a crazy long time!
The festival grounds will open at 10h00 on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The bar close at 01h00 every day (official Belgian closing time in this COVID-19 era). Jamming will still be possible :)
COVID-19 TEST CENTRE
Always bear in mind the opening hours of the COVID-19 test centre!! After closing time, we will no longer be able to test you!
OPENING HOURS COVID-19 TEST CENTRE AT FESTIVAL SITE:
(not on Wednesday!)
• THURSDAY: 12h00 – 16h00
• FRIDAY: 10h00 – 14h00
• SATURDAY: 10h00 – 14h00
• SUNDAY: 10h00 – 14h00
A COVID-19 rapid antigen test will be valid for 24 hours only! If you, for example, arrive at 14h00 on Friday, you will get your ‘COVID-19 free zone bracelet’ after having been tested, that is. Your test will be valid for Saturday (entire day) IF you arrive before 14h00 (for instance at 13h30). However, it will no longer be valid for Saturday (if you arrive after 14h00) or Sunday. It, subsequently, means that you will have to retake the test before entering on Saturday (after 14h00) or Sunday, otherwise you will be denied access.
Price tag? A COVID-19 rapid antigen test costs €10 and can only be paid by card (Bancontact, Visa or Payconic).
The easiest and safest way though to enjoy the festival is to arrive with a negative PCR test or a vaccination certificate !
We are really looking forward to welcoming you all at Boombalfestival 2021!
All over the world people are currently suffering the consequences of the coronavirus.
In Belgium the authorities have decided not to allow festivals during the summer of 2020.
Boombal, and the people behind it, want to take part in the collective effort needed to get through this situation in a safe way.
Which means that we won’t be able to invite you to share a dance or two this summer. Dancing together and having fun is what defines Boombal…
As a consequence, the 15th edition of our Boombalfestival will be postponed to August 26th to 29th of 2021. Save the date!
We look forward to sharing the dancefloors again!
Stay safe and see you in 2021
