Latest update from Shambala Festival

Well.. that was just a little bit special wasn’t it?
That may just have been our favourite Shambala ever.
A huge and slightly emotional thank you to the following:

– Our amazing, tireless and talented crew who worked their bottoms off bringing this whole shebang together – building utopia from the ground up, keeping us all fed, watered, safe and smiling.

– The phenomenal musicians, artists, performers and workshop leaders who kept us all dancing, laughing, learning and wondering and left us with huge smiles, aching muscles, big ideas and nourished souls.

– The thousands of caring, hilarious and giving Shambalans who remind us every year why we do what we do, and love doing it. You lot give us a peek into the world we want to live in year round and remind us that behind bleak headlines and gloomy world events, this planet is still bursting at the seams with kind, open hearted people who want to live better, love more, laugh harder and tread lighter.

– Also, thanks to our last minute, unexpected headliner, ‘blazing sunshine’ who played a stonking, four day set.

Big, big love – the Shambala team x

Shambala Festival

โšก๏ธTICKET WARNING!โšก๏ธ
Never before in our 17 year history have we had to issue a ticket warning in February, but we can now confirm that less than a quarter of tickets remain for this year's festival. Ticket sales so far have smashed all of our previous records into smithereens, so if you're yet to book, we very strongly urge you to get a wriggle on! Grab yours here:

Can I have one for free? I'm desperately broke but good to have at a party...

Bought mine in October! I was born ready for my first shambala!

wiggle or wriggle or both with a shimmy?

quick question... I presume trailer tents are classed as live-in vehicles/caravans?

Thanks for sharing shambala. Can you keep up with the ticket reminders for us slow people. Thanks. Love you xx

Rae Oswald, Rachel Singleton, Denis McFadden, Dana Guba, Rubin Amsalem Lisa Modiano Cleo Yuki Goodall - for beth?

We're going ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜again!!

What are the dates canโ€™t see it anywhere

Shambala I love you! And I miss you, had to have a couple of years out being away and was so excited to come this year But with tickets going up in price every year and early birds selling out so fast, it so hard to afford/buy tickets. Will be the first time coming as a family and finally had enough to buy the deposit tickets but they have sold out! I canโ€™t work or volunteer as I have a small person to look after. I really hope they donโ€™t sell out before I can afford a full ticket.

Wow, worked there for last 3 years but havenโ€™t heard about this year as itโ€™s early what shall I do

  1. I want to be back x a big thank you to the medical team when I had a seizure we think it was due to no sleep from camping by the red zone music blasting till 7 am then parties and music round our tent next year we will camp in a quiet area x

  2. Wow Shambala! It was our first, it won’t be our last ๐Ÿ˜
    I’ve not got a single complaint, not one, the staff, security, the creativity, the effort, the atmosphere, even the loos, it’s the best run, most super friendly, outrageously fabulous festival I’ve ever been to ๐Ÿ˜˜ thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š

  3. Thanks for a great long weekend!! It was the first of many for us and the kids. We all LOVED it! (Runs off to buy more sequins and glitter for next year). ๐ŸŽ‰โค๏ธ๐Ÿคนโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ€๐ŸŽˆ

  4. ๐Ÿ˜ my home! Can’t believe it’s over again ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ช๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ญ
    Keep doing what you’re doing, the staff, the responsible element, the veggie food, the art without the pretentiousness, the magical woods, the wonderful world music, the gorgeous gorgeous humans xxx

  5. This is by far the most incredible, friendly, fun, colourful, exciting, loving & laughter filled festival I have ever been to (and I’ve been to MANY!) I adore you Shambala and I will be back every year from now on. Thank you from the botton of my heart for everything! X
