    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get Jeremy Loops next year, he would be amazing on the main stage, incredible South African artist who gets the crowd jumping!!!! He would suit Shambala to an absolute T!! Playing Brixton Academy in November after his sell out show at the Roundhouse last Feb – go scout him out!!

    How’s about some psy trance in the woods? Seems perfect for it! Trance is so underrepresented at festivals 😥 and it’s all about the love and acceptance! Uplifting and euphoric! Or at least some progressive house?

    Juju (album – ‘our mother was a plant’) & Follakazoid.

  44. Georgina Cousin says:

    Correspondents bcak please, and Alice Russell.
    Also, how about Mahalia, and some deep house djs from Babble collective ?

    My womxn DJ collective Selextorhood would love to come. We can bring down some djs who love the fest and can play all sorts of tunes, we just supported Jayda G.

    We would also be keen to do a talk on being a DJ in a male dominated industry and run a womxn DJ workshop.

    Also generally get your line up to be 50/50 gender balance!

    Get in touch 😁🤩
