- Teen (15 – 17 years)

Admission may be refused, or surcharges applied, if you arrive at the event with tickets of the wrong age bracket for the holder.

Teen tickets may only be purchased with, or in addition to an existing order of adult tickets, by an adult of 30 years or older. A maximum of two Teen tickets and a total of three minors (persons under 18) per qualifying adult may be purchased.

Loco Parentis: In case of emergency, we need to ensure that we are able to care for under 18’s in their best interests and that may require us to take action immediately, for example medical treatment for a minor. Treatment may require permission from a legal guardian. It is the lead ticket purchaser’s responsibility for all tickets purchased for those aged under 18, to ensure that a person is identified as the responsible adult via the ticket system. This is done by associating the responsible adult for each under 18 ticket in the order, during the process of adding names and contact information to tickets, and the responsible guardian must:
- be ‘loco parentis’ for that child whilst at the festival site (this means they are legally entitled to make decisions for that child) in emergencies,
- have been given permission by the legal guardian of the child to act as loco parentis in emergencies,
- be available throughout the festival on the phone number provided on the ticket system.
You agree to these conditions as part of the ticket buying process.

Shambala’s Nudity Policy
Shambala’s policy on nudity aims to balance a supportive approach to an individual’s wish to feel free and safe to choose to be without clothes, and wider considerations about everyone’s comfort and safety. Shambala considers public nudity of a non-sexual manner to be natural. We welcome respectful [adult] nudity in the campsites and main outdoor festival areas in daylight hours, and of course in the Sauna and Spa areas at all times. As part of our general approach to sexual safety, and a commitment to ensuring everyone’s comfort, nudity is not permitted in indoor venues (other than activities such as talks or workshops where attendees are predominantly seated) or dense crowds due to the anonymity these environments provide for those who may not be acting respectfully or within the law. Adult nudity is not permitted in the Children’s field (Playtopia) and Woodland Tribe areas, nor the Family Camping areas.
Shambala’s Inclusivity Policy
Shambala is taking active steps to improve inclusivity and diversity – we want everyone to feel welcome and able to enjoy the festival. Data gathered at the point of sale with TTS will help us understand our audience breakdown, shape the event and measure our progress.
We want Shambala to be a safer space and strongly believe that everybody has the right to enjoy the festival experience free from harassment, microaggressions, abuse or intimidation. We are committed to ensuring that Shambala is an inclusive space for communities targeted by discrimination such as racism, sexism, transphobia, ableism and homophobia. We welcome feedback on how we can improve on these efforts. Every person who comes to Shambala, be it crew, artists or audience has a shared responsibility to oppose discriminatory behaviour and promote inclusivity. This is a community and everybody is welcome.
