Shambala takes place across four days on the August Bank Holiday Weekend at a stunning secret location in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside. The variety and quality of entertainment on offer is staggering for a festival of its size. With over 200 diverse musical acts across 12 live stages, world-class cabaret, an amazing array of workshops, stand-up comedy, inspirational talks and debates, jaw dropping circus and acrobatics, interactive theatre and nationally acclaimed poetry all housed in beautifully decorated venues.
Pioneering, intimate and truly innovative, Shambala Festival has perfectly blended creativity and participation for well over a decade. Shambala is a special 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.
Lineup – TBA
Shambala is a magical paradise like no other. An award winning festival set in enchanting forest based in the midlands. With boundless creativity, art, workshops, installations, world music and immersive projects – it’s no wonder Shambala is a world-leading and guaranteed sell-out event.
Volunteers will be required for no more than 3 x 8 hour shifts. No overnight shifts.
You will be part of the ‘Gates & Eco Bond Team’, welcoming festival-goers, and helping to facilitate the festival’s Eco Bond initiative to keep Shambala tidy and help spread awareness of their exceptional sustainable and green (award-winning) schemes. You’ll be required for no more than 24 hours across the weekend with no overnight shifts! You’ll get free entry, a free meal for every shift, training and support from an experienced team, access to tea and coffee, a chill, charge and camping space with other volunteers and loads of time to enjoy the music.
Go with your mates and not one of you will leave with the same story to tell!
