Fool 35 – Boomtown


I arrived at the location of the Boomtown festival on a hot summer day only to find a flower market in full swing. I wasn’t surprised, as they invited me to capture the transformation from the square into a rocking 5 day festival (a feat they accomplish in only 72 hours!) and provide a face to the people behind the scenes.

My All Access pass during the festival itself gave me a unique view of the side of Boomtown that most people never get to see. From artists preparing for their performance or enjoying the rush afterwards, to a hard working stage crew and the many dishwashers.

Hello, I'm Maarten.

With Fools With Dreams I travel the world by trading my services as a pro photographer for a warm place to sleep, some food and a (zeppelin) ride to the next location with those who are following their dreams, those who are called fools by those who don’t know.
