Latest update from Shambala Festival

MISSED CONNECTIONS!**
At this time every year, we get inundated with messages like this:

‘I met the love of my life in the woods and didn’t get his name. He had a face, two eyes and probably had hair – can you help?’

‘I’m pretty sure I joined a band around the Roots Yard fire on Friday night – if I don’t track them down soon I’ll be late for our first gig..’

‘A man dressed as a giant poached egg danced with us for twelve hours straight and then disappeared in a puff of smoke – any idea who he was?’

Here’s your chance Shambalans – looking for somebody? Want to thank somebody for making your festival? Just want to give a virtual high five to the person who handed your phone or wallet in? Comment below and you might just be reunited…

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

Luke Bliss-Thompson

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. Yes! I would like to find out of anyone knows who was the dj in the treehouse in the woods on Friday night, possibly about midnight (I think), he had curly hair (I think!) and took us on a journey through some rather awesome dirty electronic tunes!??? In the programme it just said opening ceremony! …It was such a good set 🤘💜🕺

  2. The lady who just proposed to her man on Sunday night who came to dance under a big jellyfish in kamikaze!! Would love to wish her congrats! (Also, anyone else who joined me in jellyfish Sunday fun!)

  3. Dear HENGE and the guy wearing the penguin onesie and shiny silver cape (make yourself known (!)) me and J Baker need you in our life, you were all so unexpected and magical and the highlight of shambala. Be our friends so we can colonise space together. luv ur biggest fans from planet earth xxx

  4. Id like to say Hello and a big THANKYOU to anyone who stopped and spoke to our 7yr old little lady on Thursday afternoon in the family camping. She was stopping people on their way further up the field asking if they wanted to see her “Crumping.” To all those who stopped whilst lugging their gear with a cheery “Go on then..” you made her absolute weekend! And to all those who threw a coin in her hat…you’ve no idea how excited she was! She (and all of us) had an absolute blast so a big HI FIVE to you all! Xxx

  5. Would like to say hi to Ben with the great smile who I met in the Enchanted Woods on Fri night. Was working at the festival and had to start at 7.45 on Sat morning ! Unfortunately didn’t catch up again!

  6. The lovely group of people (some in Egyptian outfits) dancing in The Botanical Disco from 10pm on Saturday. My wife took a video with some of our Brighton friends and You guys were in it. I met you on the Sunday and we talked about that Thriller edit. You were a lovely bunch and helped to make my festie x

  7. Im looking for copious amounts of people that took pictures of me. I had orange harem shorts and was either a fox in bowler hat with taid or rabbit in top hat. Would appreciated and be for ever thank you.

  8. I like to say big thanks to a Spanish guy called Mati( I think) who gave me a battery for my pixel whip and come to tree house with me to dance together on Sunday night. I was very impressed with his dancing n friendly company. He had one mechanical leg and brown furry outfit, big speakers on his trolley to take his music everywhere and his pixel whip to dance with. I had to go back to tent early, please contact me if you read this or if u know him. Let’s dance again!

  9. Thank you to some wonderful person who handed in my (indian-style zipped up) purse, with all the money and credit card intact! You made my festival – another friend lost a wallet the day before, with £300 in it, and didn’t get it back, which did my head in (being Shambala and all that!), but my faith was restored when my own purse was kindly handed in! Thank you Shambalian, whoever you are xxx

  10. To the guy who gazed at me across the urinal… So much love in those eyes. And declared… ‘I’ve just proposed to my girlfriend on the ferris wheel, I love her so much’. And then took me by the wee hand to meet the beautiful lady. You guys were so damn happy. I dined out on that moment all day! Thank you x

  11. As Kayleigh Marlow mentioned.
    I do hope the girl had an awesome shambala, cos she provided us with one of many entertaining memories.
    😂 she just crawled in the tent and fell asleep between two of our fellow campers.
    Would love to hear from her. X
