Latest update from Shambala Festival

“It’s clear from the moment you enter the main gates and are greeted by grinning disco dancers dishing out candy floss, that this isn’t your average festival.” – who spotted us in The Independent today?

There were some unforgettable sets at Shambala Festival – review

Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to attend a whole raft of UK festivals – from chic boutique to mainstream madness, city-centre to country escapes. Yet, on this showing, nothing is a patch on Shambala. I’d argue that an ideal festival should be about leaving your 9-5 behind, letting go of your…

Only for 18-25 year olds, the demographic currently rich with their parents money. Don't go to college, work for us for free under the notion of learning something.

Why is there an age limit on it ??? Kimberley Louise Hurrell we would rock this even if we are too old!

10 week course???? ive got qualifications that allow me to dispense medication, plan and write safety assessments for an entire organisation that took me less than that.

Why the limit ? That's sad to see a limit ?

Why do WE HAVE TO BE UNDER 25, WHATS SO SPECIAL ABOUT THAT NUMBER...WHY NOT HAVE FESTIES THAT ONLY 20 SOMETHINGS CAN GO TO THEN PAH

Jack Wade - this is what I was telling you about Friday ☺️

Alison Chambers I’m sure you know some bright young things who would love this xx

Justin Strong i think we should do this bro

Jim Drummond let's apply ! Be great experience ! X

Tanisha-leigh Dunn what a great opportunity! Real interesting! X

Liz Miss-Daisy. Know anybody that this may interest?

Freya Grayson this would be so cool!!

For those sad about the age limit on this opportunity, I just want to recommend the Charity Apprentice course with Child.org as an alternative. It includes a whole module on event management and loads of opportunities in management and operation positions at UK festivals with Charity Concierge. We have many people on the course who are looking for experience in event management: charityapprentice.org

Rose let's do it

Shame there's so much negativity about this , I am really excited about this opportunity for any young people who can get on this, especially if it's my son Kain Finn Zahiri!!

This sounds brilliant take no notice of the moaners. I worked on the Festival circuit in the 80s and 90s and had the time of my life. Now as a comfortably middle aged vicar I am toying with the idea of venturing forth once more into fields of green...

Hmm shame about the age limit..I review events and would love to be able to do a course like this. Eventually I want to be hosting not reviewing. Using what I have learned along the way

Ben Flava reckon you could get away with being 25? Xx

Zoe Dines Lisa Goodwin..kai might like this...xxxxx

Boris Yentob one for the learners

Maggie Waldon thought you might like to tell a few people locally! X

George Howe this could be interesting & good thing to do ?

if only it was closer to me 🙁

Deneshan Naidoo check out Shambala as well <3

  1. But surely we must try and stop these stories….? Sold out every year and full of the most beautiful people…. they’re what make Shambala such a special place. Punter to Directors…. the people don’t need to change!!!!

  2. after seeing reveiws of secret garden party like this in the press, and then watching the crowd change from colourful wonderful people to `joe bloggs and rampant youth off their heads on ket, i really hope Shambala can stay as it is.
    After finding you 2 years ago and thinking, this is it, just like sgp used to be ten years ago, we’ve found our new home, im dreading it going the same way
