About this festival
"A truly individual festival in a sea of mediocrity. Long may it reign." - The Independent, 2017.
An all singing, all dancing adventure into utopia. Back for it's 17th year, Shambala is a 100% independent and anti-corporate explosion of colour, nonsense and communal giddiness. Pioneering, intimate and truly innovative, this is a place where you play, revitalise, make lots of new friends and return to the world fuelled-up on the beauty of being alive. As well as being known as a legendary party, it is also a haven for cutting edge theatrics and performance, a think-tank of ideas and an award winning green event.
