The Spark Tour, a curated BOOM experience with Boris “Bluz” Rogers $50
Get the VIP experience at this year’s BOOM Festival with a curated docent tour! Highly decorated national slam poet Boris “Bluz” Rogers shows guests how to BOOM, with three curated BOOM Fringe shows, an intentional tour that crosses paths with BOOM STREET performers and installations, talkbacks and an artist meet-and-greet. Learn to worry less about “getting” the artistic message and instead, to focus on the feelings it draws out—after all, like beauty, impact is in the eye of the beholder. The small-group tours, one Saturday and one Sunday, give newcomers an entrypoint and deepen the BOOM experience for seasoned festival-goers. At $50, it’s a substantial value. There are only 10 slots available per tour, so get your ticket early and see you behind the scenes!
