Energy, force, release, and expression.

That's how we'd categorize the range of emotions felt at the second edition of Baum Festival, which took place May 21 in Bogotá, Colombia at the city's Multiparque venue. Owned and operated by the Bogotá nightclub of the same name, the event went for 14 consecutive hours around multiple stages, offering talents like Ellen Allien, Bjarki, Kevin Saunderson, and local talents like Hernan Cayetano, to a crowd of 8,000 strong. Check out this photo gallery below for an intimate look into the massive techno gathering the whole city is still coming down from.
