Travel to and from the festival makes up over 90% of the events emissions. Our Green Travel Strategy centres on audience using shared forms of travel, and fewer delivery/production related journeys.

Over the past 10 years have been enticing more and more festival goers onto the Shambala Express – our festival coaches – with discounted travel, fun on board, and early campsite entry (for morning departures). In 2022 we have increased coach travellers (again!) by 15% compared to the last edition, with 74 coaches from across the UK. Now more than a third of our festival goers are arriving on shared transport – either coach or train & shuttle bus.

We do understand that car travel is unavoidable for some people, and the fuller that car is, the lower the carbon footprint per person. To incentivise car sharing we have partnered with GoCarShare, to match up drivers with those who need a lift.

We also provide organised cycle tours to the festival with partner Red Fox, and reward cyclists with a free programme on arrival, discount massages and secure bike parking on site – you just need to show us your cycling gear on arrival.
