BOOM Charlotte - The Intersection
Presented by Que-OS

Three days of art, performance and the unexpected. 

April 20-22, 2018  Plaza Midwood

The BOOM festival is Charlotte’s annual showcase of contemporary and experimental art created on the fringes of popular culture. We’ve gathered a unique coalition of artists, volunteers, nonprofits, local businesses and neighborhood organizations to transform the way art is made and shared.

Our third BOOM festival will feature 30 ticketed, original performances in several small music venues of Plaza Midwood. The Fringe Events feature edgy, experimental, experiential, original performance works by local and national artists.  Ticketed performances and After Parties are $10. Tickets can be purchased online, at the door (30 minutes prior) or at the Intersection Box Office (1924 Commonwealth Avenue). Discounted weekend and day passes are available.  BOOM Performance Schedule

BOOM Intersection Events

The Intersection is the space in which art, culture and community collide. Join us for FREE live music and performance art on our outdoor stage, curated by some of the best music and dance organizations in Charlotte. The Intersection is the epicenter for the festival - creating a location where audience and community members can congregate in an outdoor living room with couches and a fire pit, find out more about BOOM, play in the children’s activity spaces, and participate in a free, outdoor family-friendly environment. The Intersection will include public installations and participatory visual art.
