Latest update from Shambala Festival

As 2018 draws to a close, it’s time to look back on everything we achieved together over the past 12 months, in the name of a better future.

It’s been another vintage year for all things green at Shambala. We say it every year but it’s true – none of our environmental wins would be remotely possible if we didn't have support from the Shambala community. Thank you, as ever, for being the most conscious, thoughtful and kind festival crowd on the planet. Every year, you lot prove that purposeful hedonism is possible and we’re so very lucky to have you.

Below are a few of this years' achievements – follow the link at the bottom to delve into each point in more information:

🌎 We achieved a 5 star rating from Creative Industry Green for the second year running.

🌎 For the first time ever, we sent zero waste to landfill – this is really positive, as far as ‘not wasting stuff’ is concerned – but it’s not actually our ultimate goal. Instead, our focus is on reducing the waste created in the first place (and we’re doing well in that regard too, reducing the total tonnes of waste created, year on year) and recycling as much as possible.

🌎 The estimated impact of taking meat off Shambala's menus is a massive 100 tonnes of GHG emissions per year.

🌎 Our overall carbon footprint was reduced by 10% as a result of nearly doubling the numbers of coach travellers.

🌎 12,000 hot drink cups were captured (and properly recycled).

🌎 Half a tonne of food waste was distributed to local causes.

🌎 We became one of the first festivals in the UK to offer electric car charging on site.

🌎 We remain 100% powered by renewable energy.

🌎 Over the past ten years, we have reduced the carbon footprint of the festival by almost 90%

Delve into all of this in more information, and have a sneak peek at our sustainability plans for 2019, by reading our full green round up, here: https://www.shambalafestival.org/the-big-green-round-up-20…/

🌟 WIN THE LAST TICKETS TO SHAMBALA 2019! 🌟

Shambalans, we need you. We’re raising funds for Unseen – a charity who do vital work in the fight against modern slavery and human trafficking. This isn’t a cause that gets a large amount of media spotlight, but it’s a huge and urgent issue both here in the UK and around the world.

◼️ Today there are 24.9 million victims of forced labour, more than any other time in history.

◼️ 1 in every 200 people in the world are currently enslaved.

◼️ 1 in 4 victims of modern slavery are children.

◼️ According to the National Crime Authority, in 2017, British nationals made up the highest proportion of modern slavery victims within the UK – an increase of nearly 100% vs the previous year.

We’re asking YOU, the great people of Shambala to join the fight against modern day slavery – and in doing so, you’ll get the chance to win the very, very last tickets to this years’ sold out festival!

If you donate £6 or more before August 3rd 2019, you will be entered into a prize draw to win ONE ADULT TICKET to Shambala 2019.

If you donate £13 or more before August 3rd 2019, you will be entered into a separate prize draw to win TWO ADULT TICKETS to this year’s sold out Shambala Festival.

Winners will be notified via email on 4th August 2019.

100% of your sponsorship money will go to the Unseen. For every donation received, we'll fly a string of prayer flags from the Shambala stage as a symbol of our support for victims of modern day slavery.

  1. Love that you are encouraging upcycled and repurposed costumes next year! As we created zero-waste costumes for last year, I’m totally taking a slice of the credit for that HA HA!! 🙂 but I am left worried about how on earth we’ll top it next year! Bring on the theme vote so we can get our thinking caps on – can’t wait. Shambala is the best!

  2. Wow!!! This is outstanding! And only makes me love Shambala more!!! Such a wonderful event. Thank you for inspiring us to all be better. Thanks for organising such an amazing event 😊😘

  3. This is all amazing. Shambala you are a trailblazer. But please can you help me understand something. How come you have not sent any waste to landfill when people bring single-use plastic with food in it? What happens to that waste? Thank you 🙂
