    What will be on... well, we never let out much, but expect the usual Shambala concoction of quality music, cabaret, spoken word, workshops, performance arts, intimate and creative venues, site art, and the unexpected... lots more info here in early 2008...
    See a list of the venues and areas: HERE
    Just to tease you here's a few things to look forward to:

    • A massive new luxury jungle hot tub area
    • Saturday night Carnival - Rio style
    • Crazy golf course is back, bigger and better
    • LOADS omore creative workshops
    • Several exciting stages of music, cabaret, poetry, spoken word, debates, and the unexpected
    • Woodland installations which will blow your mind, again
    • Really sunny weather (just like in 2007)
    • Quiet family camping areas
    • More walkabout performance and weird goings on than you can shake a stick at!

  • If I get my dissertation finished a month early as I plan too, I'll be heading to this straight from Boom. Whether this will actually pan out or not depends largely on my ability to get my ass in gear without a deadline looming...

    does it have a good kids area anyone ?? xx


    Yes it does, ''Festival Mama's'' work really hard to ensure the littlest of 'Shhh' kids have a great time. older kids get a very fair size of fun and teenagers seem to find the stuff they like too. It's excellent for kids.

  • I'm trying to decide today whether to buy a ticket to this or croissant neuf....arghh, decisions. I have heard a lot of good things about shambala

  • buy a ticket to one and work the other?


    shambala is fuckin awesome to work at!

  • email them and ask. what do you want to do?


    look at their website to see which cafes and stages are gonna be there then email them to ask for work or ask the organisers to put you in touch with whoever runs whatever it is you want to be involved with!
