Shambala Festival news: Important ticket details – Shambala 2018

Latest update from Shambala Festival

HEADS UP! With tickets running very low, we want to touch base with you about our Coach Packages. We expect that very soon, the last of the tier 5 regular tickets will have been snapped up, and the only adult tickets left will be the Shambala Express packages.

If you choose one of Shambala Express tickets, you must book one of our coach tickets and travel to the festival this way. Shambala Express ticket buyers are wristbanded on the coach (and have priority access to site!). Please note these tickets are only valid if you arrive on the coach – if you book a coach ticket but don’t take the coach, right of admission is reserved.

We are looking to encourage people to use more sustainable modes of transport, and are incentivising this with lower price tickets and subsidised coaches. If you missed the general release and don’t want to come on the Shambala Express, we’re sorry but you need to wait until next time.

We’ve jazzed up our coach offering this year to make it more appealing than ever, including:

🚌 £15 off all festival tickets bought as Shambala Express Packages.
🚌 Kids go half price on the Shambala Express!
🚌 We’ll be picking up from the following departure points across the country: Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, London, Manchester and Sheffield.
🚌 We are offering early and late departures from some cities
🚌 On arrival, travellers who have taken the early coaches will enjoy fast-track first entry to the campsites (weather dependent).
🚌 There will be luggage support options in place on site to help you carry everything to camp.
🚌 The festival starts early, on the coach with a pub style quiz, broadly based on this year’s fancy dress theme, with a fab prize. We’ll also be playing an exclusive Shambala mix, to get the party started.
🚌 It really is the easiest way of getting home after days of partying hard – and those who would have driven can keep partying late into Sunday night rather than having to take it easy early on.
🚌 You can revel in the lovely warm glow of knowing you’re travelling in the most environmentally positive way (apart from cycling or walking, of course!)

We have set aside 20% of all 2018’s festival tickets (at every ticket tier) for the Shambala Express Packages. In all honesty, we really need to reduce the number of cars driving to the festival. Audience travel makes up a huge percentage of our overall carbon footprint and we’re desperate to reduce that – but we do need your help. If you book a coach ticket, please do your bit and get on that coach!

Book your festival (and coach) tickets here and we’ll see you in August:

Love, the Shambala team x

Tickets for Starry Skies - our very own family camping holiday - are on sale now! Now in it's eighth year, Starry Skies is truly a place for the kids to roam free; from axe throwing and pony grooming to mudpie kitchens, treehouse building, barn dances, family raves and fancy dress.

Join us down on the farm in Monmouthshire next August.
Our Easy Pay options enable you to bag your adult ticket for just £50 and pay off the rest in chunks. Under 3s go free, and it's just £45 per child for kids aged 3-17.
