Latest update from Shambala Festival
High fives and bear hugs to every one of you who supported our Flags In Place of War crowdfunder, raising an amazing £3,600 by sponsoring the strings of flags that will adorn the Shambala stage.
The money raised will be used to set up music studios across Uganda. These studios will be established in a Congolese refugee camp, a prison in the war affected region of Uganda in partnership with indigenous hip-hop artists and on a remote island in Lake Victoria which is the base of a community organisation that helps single mothers and vulnerable children.
Any generous soul who donated £25 or over was automatically entered into a draw to win 2 tickets to Shambala 2017 – the winner has now been drawn at random – congratulations, Malcolm Innes!
Don’t miss In Place of War’s bespoke collaboration, GRRRL, on the Shambala Stage on Saturday at 2:10pm. This performance promises to be something very special – featuring fierce women artists from areas of conflict fusing sounds of dark techno, hip hop, dancehall, reggae, soul and electronica.
(PS – see you in ONE WEEK! x)
