Latest update from Shambala Festival

As Pride month draws to a close, we’ve got some announcements for you – buckle up, as it’s a slightly wordy one..


๐ŸŒˆ The SanQtuary ๐ŸŒˆ
This month has been a time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community, reclaim histories and learn better allyship within and from outside of the community. With this in mind, we are immensely proud and excited to announce a new venue debuting at Shambala this year: our all new Queer clubhouse, The SanQtuary.

Run by and for the LGBTQ+ community and its allies, it is an intersectional and intergenerational space, inspired by the ancestors. During the day get cosy by the wood burner, for some holistic healing, and tap into rich Queer heritage, through talks, workshops, meditation and a good olโ€™ brew.

As the sun begins to set, Queens & Cocktails, Shambalaโ€™s daily meet and greet, will be a chance to segue smoothly into each nightโ€™s offering of cutting-edge performance, wild dance parties and slick DJ sets. Come along, explore visions of, and play in, our own Queertopia!

๐ŸŒˆ FREEDOM FRIDAY๐ŸŒˆ
Who doesnโ€™t love a make over? Itโ€™s about time Fruity Friday slapped a little proverbial lippy on. New and improved, we want Friday to be more than just a titillating play at โ€˜cross-dressingโ€™: the gender binaryโ€™s dead now anyways! We want Friday to be the time when people have free reign to experiment with their gender expression โ€“ to be bold and open, in safe and silly, Shambolic surrounds!

โ€œFruity,โ€ the delicious cocktail of sweet plant matter, can also have pretty damning connotations. In Britain, the word has historically meant naughty, bawdy and spicy (no bad thing there!), but has also been substitute for notions of the wicked, impure and rotten. In the US โ€œfruityโ€ has subsequently been used as a homophobic slur. This etymology lesson has left us with a sour taste in our mouthsโ€ฆ perhaps itโ€™s time to do away with the word? Time to make Friday as inclusive as possible.

So, weโ€™re welcoming in FREEDOM FRIDAY โ€“ a day for ludicrous, lovely, larger-than-life gender play; a chance for people to experiment; to dress their truest or to test out the absolute opposite; to play pretend; to proclaim โ€œITโ€™S MEโ€; to revel in body positivity. We hope youโ€™ll get stuck in and embrace the name change. This is an invitation to up-the-ante, covered up, stripped down or dressed to the nines โ€“ and celebrate freedom, as we enter this next chapter in our adventures.

Big love, The Shambala Team x

If you missed Wiyaala's performance with K.O.G & The Zongo Brigade at Barrio Afrika this year and haven't been able to forgive yourself, fear not, the video folks at Trago Studio captured the whole set for you. Behold, the coolest woman on the planet.

Sound and mixing by Pete Not Bombs.
