We are confident that Shambala this year will be the best family experience you could hope for. So whether you want to relax by the lake while the kids play in the sand-pit (sounds like heaven), check out the family matinee shows at the Social Club and films at The Lost Picture Show cinema or participate in the many 100′s of brilliant diverse workshops and activities, there is never a dull family moment to be had.
To make life even easier for families we have doubled the amount of compost loos on site and increased the number of “Posh Wash” showers, introduced a new dedicated Family Vehicle Camping Field and will, once again, be offering wheel barrows that you can borrow for free to help get you kit to the campsites. We have also insisted that all food traders will offer reasonably priced kids meals on their menus.
There will be a “baby space” in the heart of the event where you can feed, warm bottles without having to go all the way back to your tent and a Camp Site shop selling everything you could possibly need. Back in the Family Camping Area there is a dedicated Family Yurt offering toys, activities and bedtime stories with cocoa.
We are proud to have one of the most vibrant kid’s field on the festival circuit. It’s absolutely jam packed with activities, workshops and entertainment. We have creative chaos in the many art tents where the little ones can make monsters, build badges, design costumes, get messy, draw dragons, and so much more – they will even be able to take something home to remember the festival.
Teenagers will have their own space to hang out in with music and dance workshops or they could Join the Festival Press Team as a reporter, photographer or editor and get access all areas!
But best of all, Shambala Festival is a famously warm natured and friendly festival with a wild side. After all, parents like to party too!
