Latest update from Shambala Festival

Ticket news! Regular adult tickets for Shambala Festival 2019 sold out back in January, and the last of the coach packages have now been snaffled up.

The only ticket types now remaining are our Red Fox Cycling Tickets. These tickets do get you entry to the festival, but are only valid for entry if you take part on a Red Fox guided bike tour, from either London, Sheffield or Bristol.

All routes have been tried and tested – they are scenic, safe and frequently off road. Riders will be accompanied by a support van which will carry everything that you don’t want to. The folks at Red Fox Cycling have handpicked campsites for our riders to lay their weary heads, on route.

Don’t worry, nobody expects you to cycle back from the festival too – you’ve already proved that you are absolute warriors. If you’ve got mates at the festival with room in their vehicle for your bike, feel free to jump in with them, but Red Fox will also be offering a return journey in a coach for an additional £15 – your trusty bikes will be transferred back in the support van at the same time.

Shambala Festival

Hello, wonderful humans of Shambala.

Firstly, we want to send everybody our solidarity and love at what is a truly bewildering time. While we may all be apart, the need for community, kindness and connection has never been greater.

This is an unprecedented situation for the festival and events industry (and the world at large) so we have taken some time to review information and advice and to watch how things have developed, before making any public statements.

Shambala takes place right at the end of the Summer, still over 5 months away. Current suggestions are that the situation with COVID-19 may have run its course by the time we hope to open our gates, so as it currently stands we are working under the assumption that Shambala 2020 will go ahead on the August bank holiday weekend.

Whilst the current situation is brand new, we’ve been putting Shambala on for 20 years and have weathered many storms (both figurative and literal) in this time. With decades of experience under our belts, we know nothing is more important than looking after all of you. Your health and wellbeing is of paramount importance.

With this in mind, should government advice mean we find ourselves in an unavoidable situation whereby we are unable to proceed with this year's event, we can confirm that you will be able to claim a refund on your ticket(s). Should this situation ever arise, all customers would be notified by email and given 8 weeks to claim a full refund (less booking fees).

There will also be the opportunity for you to not lose your tickets and carry them over to the next edition of Shambala. For those who are happy to support us in this way and guarantee their spot for the next festival, no action is needed - it will happen automatically if you do not claim a refund within the 8 week period that would follow a postponement announcement.

As you can imagine, we're all keeping a very keen eye on the whole situation and are in close contact with national health authorities and the Government. We will always act on their advice when it comes to the welfare of the Shambala family – our audience, crew and artists.

We appreciate that the situation is very fluid and that public health advice can change quickly - should the situation change, we will adapt accordingly, and pledge to keep our audience informed of any changes that could affect them.

We do truly hope to see you for a very special 20th birthday celebration at the end of August.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be using our various media platforms to spread positivity – be it through live streamed activities, tips on managing anxiety or practical advice on how you can best help your communities, so keep an eye out.

Sending solidarity and love to all – now go wash yer hands.

I really hope we will all be united and dancing together at the end of the summer....let’s all keep positive and stay at home....

This is just the sort of response I expected from you guys! You rock, and I will certainly not be claiming a refund should it come to that, and will look forward to joining the Shambala party again, whenever that might be x

Fingers x'd all will be well. What an amazing celebration it will be. Being classed in the 'elderly ' category 🤔 I hope I'm there to witness the most superb festival on the planet. Keep safe all. You are very special. ❤

That’s the way to do it. You are lucky to be able to be so reassuring. But you make your own luck don’t you? Long live Utopia ❤️

So hope you guys will save the day. Love ya Shambala. 🙏💥
