UPDATE- This event has been cancelled

We are heartbroken to see a number of events cancelled due to COVID-19. Shambala has been cancelled for 2020, but will be back in 2021! We still have a number of events on our calendar for later in the year and encourage new applicants to apply for those.

It has been heartbreaking to see the range of festivals and live events that have been forced to cancel, however, we respect that these decisions have not been taken lightly and are likely to reduce the risk of loss of life, which is of course paramount.

If you’ve paid a deposit and have a confirmed position for this event, our team will be in touch shortly to outline the next steps.



Due to unprecedented demand for volunteering opportunities at Shambala 2020, we are only offering positions to existing and previous volunteers this year.

This means you need to complete a minimum of 4 shifts with us in summer 2020, not including your shifts at Shambala. Remember you will be asked to complete 3 shifts at all of our residential (weekend) camping festivals and only one shift on each day of our one-day festivals.

There are many ways to complete these shifts but some examples are;

1. Volunteer at one residential festival where you will do three shifts such as; Noisily, Boomtown, Boardmasters, and also volunteer at one day event such as Lovebox, Love Saves the Day, All Points East or British Summer Time.

2. Volunteer at four, one day events; for example, all three days at Lovebox and then one day at British Summer Time.

If you have volunteered with us in both 2019 and 2018, want to volunteer at Shambala but are unable to meet this requirement then drop us a line at hello@mycauseuk.com.

As with all of our events, you must apply and pay your deposit before we can confirm your application, and positions are filled on a first come, first served basis.

If you are accepted to Shambala, and then subsequently cancel other events meaning you no longer meet this requirement we reserve the right to cancel your position at


26th – 31st August 2020
