Car sharing is a big action we can take to take climate action….

…. because last year, our footprint from Audience, Crew and Artist travel was nearly 500 tonnes of CO2, over 50% of the festival’s impact.

There were approximately 1.55 people in each vehicle.

If each of those vehicles seated 4 people instead – emissions would drop to 193 tonnes of CO2 only. 

We understand not everyone can travel in shared transport, or fill a car easily. But if you are able to, give it a try!

As sharing your car journeys has the potential to reduce the festival’s carbon footprint considerably.

How to find people with LiftShare

Thankfully there is a slick and easy-to-use car sharing site – LiftShare Festival are linking up thousands of passengers with car drivers, meaning everyone can get where they need to go, sharing time, cost, sandwiches, music – and of course saving CO2.

It’s a great way to save money if you are driving, or find like-minded people who are offering lifts and travel with them.

So if you’re driving, or need a lift, check out LiftShare Festival and share the journey.

⚠️ Beware, LiftShare may say that “Shambala Festival” doesn’t exist. But just scroll down to find us?!

How long does it take to drive?

Here are some distances, to help you gauge your journey:

  • From Birmingham it is only 45 miles and takes a ridiculous 47 minutes.
  • From Bristol it is 120 miles and takes a very manageable 2 hours.
  • From London it is 80 miles and takes a very do-able 2 hours.
  • From Sheffield it is 95 miles and takes a measly 1 and half hours.
  • From Penzance it is a long way – but it’s well worth it!
