Latest update from Shambala Festival

We have no words – so have some pictures instead whilst we try to string together some sentences that do justice to the magic and sun-soaked, giddy wonder of the past few days.

If you can sum up this year’s adventures in your own words, we’d love to read them. We love you. x

Shambala Festival

After smashing it out of the park last year, in their Shambala debut, Botanical Disco is BACK (and yes, it's BIGGER).
This years' line up features takeovers from English Disco Lovers (EDL), TWOGOOD, Sleazy Sessions and The Night Owl for starters. Plus, everyone's favourite mischief makers , The Dance-Off! will be back to host the ultimate disco show down - you better be oozing cool, dripping with chicness, and throwing down moves sexy enough to instantly induce widespread pants-dropping.

Shambala Festival

Once again Compass Presents bring you a world of topsy-turvy fairground relics, and inventions spawned from the mind of (the now elusive) Mr Wiggles. Beyond the red velvet curtains and under the halo of a glitter ball, expect an eclectic mix of live music, film and cabaret, before descending into outrageous beats and late-night debauchery. Delve into their line up here: ... See MoreSee Less

Late night debauchery - Can’t wait 😜 x

I have not spent hardly enough time in Compass. That needs remedying this year 😁

One of the best early-late night venues (10pm-12am). Damn I’m going to miss Shambala this year 😭

I just looked on the main website and it’s starting to show what’s on where! I’m going to start a plan...which like last year I won’t follow πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ˜

As lions, carnival kings and sequin queens of debauchery, we would kill to bring our raucous afro/latino/jazz/punk/funk infused 20 legged beast to Compass Presents

Great line up!! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ˜œ

Can't wait!

    SHAMBALA!!! My love for you grows stronger each year. So intensely stimulating that my eyes watered at the vivid colour and animated life of it all. Thank goodness we met three amazing girls who guided us in the world of cross dressing, we were free! FREE I TELL YOU! It was an emotional time with my dearest friends. We entered the magic cosmos, surfed the psychedelic clouds and came back to earth only to be greeted by the grooviest of groovy disco atmospheres. Anything goes in the shambalaland and I would say one of the best experiences of my life. Let it all go! Peace xxx

    My first shambala and I was blown away by the atmosphere and how fantastic everything/everybody was. Such a perfect weekend πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

    The closing ceremony was one of the coolest things I’ve seen!

    I so hope it was filmed!

    From the moment we arrived on site we (my Wife and I) were very much looked after. First there was Larry the 61 year old Bristolian Steward who found us space in our camping area which was very busy. Next up Kelly and Luke our festie neighbours who were really nice people. Next there was Stuart who gave us a crash course in putting up bell tents properly (its all about the ropes) Shout out to Rory who gave me an excellent neck massage and also some valuable advice which was very kind. Finally everyone who came along to The Botanical Disco on Saturday night. It was such a great sight seeing everyone dancing together in all their outfits. So many smiles and handshakes as we did our thing. A lasting memory on all levels. Xx
