As you may already know, because we bang on about it enough, over 90% of our remaining carbon footprint is made up of audience travel, and we’re constantly looking for new ways to hammer that down…
In 2023, you lot set a new record for arriving on public transport, with over a third of you rocking up on one of our coaches, by bicycle or by train and shuttle bus! Huge big ups to every single one of you who chose to travel to Shambala sustainably!
This year, in an effort to get even more of you saving both carbon and cash, we’re pricing all our sustainable travel packages at £30 cheaper than general entry tickets.
RAIL TRAVELLER COMBO PACKAGES
If you choo-choo-choose (..sorry) a Rail Traveller combo package, your tickets must be purchased in conjunction with a £10 return Rail Station Shuttle Bus ticket (bookable through our official ticket page). This Shuttle Bus ticket will get you from either Market Harborough or Long Buckby train stations to our festival site, and back again!
Your discounted Rail Traveller Combo ticket is strictly only valid for entry if you arrive at the festival via the shuttle buses and show a valid rail ticket for the same day as entry to the event. Please do not turn up to the festival by car or any other mode of transport, if you have booked this ticket type, or you may be refused entry.
MARKET HARBOROUGH STATION SHUTTLE BUS & ENTRY DAYS:
The Market Harborough shuttle bus operates on both Thursday (22nd August) and Friday (23rd August). If you’re a Rail Traveller Combo ticket holder arriving via Market Harborough, you can arrive at the festival on Thursday or Friday, using this shuttle bus.
This shuttle bus will also take you back to Market Harborough station on the Monday (26th August)
LONG BUCKBY STATION SHUTTLE BUS & ENTRY DAYS:
The Long Buckby shuttle service to the festival is only available on the opening day of the event, Thursday 22nd August, with a return journeys to the station on Monday 26th August.
If you are a Rail Traveller Combo ticket holder arriving via Long Buckby, you must arrive on the Thursday (22nd August) ONLY, as this shuttle bus does not run on the Friday.

“CAN I USE THE SHUTTLE BUS IF I’M NOT A ‘RAIL TRAVELLER COMBO’ TICKET HOLDER?”
Yes, absolutely you can. Shuttle bus tickets may be purchased in advance on our ticket page, or in person on the day (please note the cost of the Shuttle bus on the day may cost more on the day – so best to book in advance).
The shuttle service will operate on a first come first served rolling basis.
