Shambala Festival news: Don’t forget your Random Acts of Kindness!

Latest update from Shambala Festival

You may remember that this year, when purchasing your Shambala Festival 2018 tickets, there was some new details that appeared as part of the process:

“Every year, we are touched by the community spirit and kindness that you, the audience, bring to Shambala. With this in mind, we think we can up the ante and create something genuinely astonishing by embracing the idea of random acts of kindness. We invite each and every one of you to dream up amazing, unexpected, beautiful and bonkers acts of completely random kindness and bring them with you!”

With Summer just around the corner, it’s time to get your thinking caps on. A quick google throws up a lot of results that are predominantly money based; ‘buy lunch for a family of strangers at a restaurant’, ‘pay for a coffee for the person behind you in the queue’ – whilst this is all really lovely (and if you can do it, good for you, crack on!) – we don’t see this as a monetary based initiative.

A lot of you have already dreamt up some amazing ideas, but if you’re struggling, we’ve put together some suggestions to get your imagination fired up and your kindness glands working overtime – have a read here, and if you have any other wicked ideas you’d like to share, stick ’em in the comments:

At Shambala, 100% of our charity guest ticket donations go to charity. This year, The Flying Seagull Project were one of the charities receiving funds from this pot.

The Flying Seagulls advocate for access to play for all kids, and have been busy spreading joy and laughter to children effected by the refugee crisis since 2015. Read more about their inspiring work -

This election is hugely important. It's a chance for you to have your say on the policies (not personalities) that are most important to you – whether that’s the NHS, the environment, public services or education. You must have registered to vote by midnight on November 26th.

As if having a voice in your future wasn’t enough, we’ve teamed up with our friends in the festival community on a joint campaign (#UseYourVoice2019) and will be giving away 2 adult tickets to Shambala Festival 2020 to one lucky person who registers to vote between Friday 15th November (today!) and midnight on 26th November, when registration closes.


1. Like and share this post on Facebook.

2. Register to vote (it’s super quick and can even be done on your phone)

2. Once registered, comment on this Facebook post saying ‘I just registered to vote’ and tag at least one mate.

4. After the deadline of midnight on November 26th has passed, we will contact one of you as our winner. To accept the prize, you will need to forward us your confirmation email to show you did register to vote during the specified time period. Should you not be able to do this, the prize will be passed along to somebody else.

Check out our full T&CS here:

Together we can make a change. Use your voice. Vote.
