"What a wild ride the past 18 months have been, and continue to be. Now the powers that be have spoken, whilst restrictions will be in place for a few weeks longer than expected, it’s looking like we’ll be out of the socially distanced woods (and into The Enchanted Woods) in good time for the August Bank Holiday… meaning we can finally fill you lot in on what that mysterious Save The Date was all about… Whilst a full-scale Shambala wasn’t possible for us again this year, we are pulling out all the stops to bring you a dinky and gorgeous distillation of all that makes Shambala magic, over the August Bank Holiday weekend (26-29th August 2021)."

Wheelchair Access

Wheelchair access
Most of the main site is flat and easily accessible in good weather. In wet weather some areas do get muddy. We provide trackway over the worst areas but in previous years people have had problems with some wheelchairs (particularly electric chairs) over the whole site. We do our best to keep everyone moving, but do be aware that this is an open air event in a grassy field and we cannot guarantee the ground conditions. We keep an information board in the ACA with details of any particularly muddy areas as soon as we know about them. For more information, please visit our website.

There is a viewing platform at the festival and accessible viewing areas are also available. The venue has lowered bars available.
