£3,600 raised for Flags In Place of War!

We’re sending high fives, fist bumps and bear hugs to every single one of you who supported our Flags In Place of War crowdfunder, raising an amazing £3,600 by sponsoring the strings of flags that will adorn the Shambala stage.

Every penny raised will be used to set up new music studios across Uganda. These studios will be established in a Congolese refugee camp, a prison in the war affected region of Uganda in partnership with indigenous hip-hop artists and on a remote island in Lake Victoria which is the base of a community organisation that helps single mothers and vulnerable children (and is where these beautiful flags have been made).

Anybody who donated £25 or over was automatically entered into a draw to win 2 tickets to this years’ sold out festival – the winner has now been drawn at random and congratulations go to Malcolm Innes!

Don’t miss In Place of War’s bespoke collaboration, GRRRL, on the Shambala Stage on Saturday at 2pm. This performance promises to be something very special – featuring fierce women artists from areas of conflict fusing sounds of dark techno, hip hop, dancehall, reggae, soul and electronica. GRRRL is rebellious, independent, underground, revolutionary women who are promoting peace, fighting injustice and creating change through their music. Find out more HERE.

See you all VERY soon!
