BOOM Charlotte 2024

Announcing BOOM 2024

BOOM 2024 is the 7th annual arts festival! You are invited to be a part of it!
We are accepting applications from artists to present at the festival. Save the dates of April 26–28 for this unique convening of the arts.

Started by a group of Charlotte artists in 2016, the BOOM festival quickly grew into one of the largest, most diverse, multidisciplinary creative gatherings in Charlotte. Featuring all mediums from live painting to slam poetry, from aerial dance to classical music, it became the unique coming together of the whole creative ecosystem of Charlotte.

We are seeking art submissions for Fringe and Intersection:

  • BOOM Fringe: original edgy/experimental art performed in intimate settings. It features ticketed performances created by the presenting artists in several small venues.

Deadline to apply for Fringe was Nov. 10, 2023.

  • BOOM Intersection: a broad range of art performed on a central stage, plus interactive installations and activities - all free and open to the public. The Intersection is the epicenter of the festival. It becomes a location for artists, audiences, and community members to come together and enjoy live art in an outdoor living room.
