    Yes!

    Boom is not a punk festival at all but there are a lot of punks/diy-types/like minded people there. I went 2 summers ago and this year they've given me a free ticket, food, and transport to give a lecture there this year about cooperative houses. Last time I went I had the time of my life, its the biggest festival I've ever seen. Must be the good part of 100,000 people there at least, yet it's not crowded at all. Its got the wild deserty feel of Burning man, yet there are patches of cork trees here and there, plentiful water, random abandoned hundred year old stone shacks, and a lake where you can swim. im hitching the whole way there from London, I cant wait.
