The world we live in today is tainted with problems, and it’s far from the ideal society that we’ve envisioned. But the Shambala Festival is an opportunity to understand what it would be like to live in a utopia where people of all ages get along, life is celebrated, and positive feelings are evoked without sacrificing the environment for our delight.
Each year, the multi-day festival attracts 15,000 people to a secret location in Northamptonshire, the UK, to indulge in an exhilarating array of music, art, healthy food, and wellness in an environmentally-friendly festival with a huge heart. There are over 200 music acts, 12 stages, jaw-dropping performances and acrobatics, quirky workshops, interactive theater, poetry, transcendental and gastronomical activities, and so much more in venues that have been crafted to make you feel like you’re in another planet entirely. Want to relax? Sip a cocktail in a hot tub, or get a massage.
Event organizers have thought of everything you’d need for a fun yet safe experience, including 24-hour security. If you’ve forgotten a thing or two, head over to the Corner Shop which is stocked with practical and useful goods. Playtopia is a kids’ paradise; filled to the brim with all-day entertainment to keep the little ones occupied with activities such as golf course, sandpits, craft workshops, and even bedtime stories at the Family Yurt! Best of all, festival sustenance is as healthy, ethical, and delicious as it gets. There will be several bars serving over 50 different draught beers, ales, ciders, lagers, and cocktails.
‘Sing, dance, be amazed, cry from laughter, and feed your soul at this four-day event that promises an escape to utopia. ‘
It is the only festival in the world of its kind, where every single act and activity has been thoughtfully designed to leave a positive impact on the world while ensuring that you leave feeling revitalized and inspired. Attendees camp out in the spectacular countryside and immerse in nature and all things beautiful.
