Shangri-La is an area that's one massive immersive installation, a vast interactive fictional world brought to life by a creative team of over 1,500 crew, performers and artists. It is an entire realm to explore, with layer upon layer of creativity, This year is the fourth of the The Shafterlife story arc. Developing the idea of heaven and hell with contemporary sins and salvations - their message is "don't believe what you see hear or read!"

Shangri-La, part of the late night South East 'naughty corner' of the Festival have revealed that 2016 is the year of Media Truth & Lies. This year’s story aims to highlight the deceit and distractions of the mainstream media. In Shangri-La, a new power resides over the this sensational, subversive city now that the media has gained full access to its inner workings and everyone’s personal lives. Shangri-Hell International Television has the monopoly on all media outlets, plus a new HQ to create more mind-controlling trite to make you feel better about yourselves.

But with the increase of media influence and technologies, A NEW MOVEMENT OF PEOPLE POWER IS RISING. Using art, music and a fuck ton of “likes” the people are claiming back their voices and power, hacking into the systems that control them, seeking the ultimate truth…

In 2016 the area hosts interactive installations and wrap around venues, ground breaking live art and performance, epic-scale subversive artworks and multifarious music programming unify to inspire and engulf its audiences.

"Shangri-La holds a mirror up to the masses, challenging people in politics and play. Creating conversations, force-feeding the senses, expanding minds and opening hearts. There are No Spectators.

The fantasy field in the furthest corner of the festival has a deep history in outsider art and underground culture. This spirit continues to manifest in original and new ways to inspire the next generation of cultural revolutionaries and amplify the collective conscience."

Due to its overwhelming popularity, attendees are advised to experience Shangri-La early in the evening in order to avoid the crowds after midnight.

SHITV throws open its doors to show you the sparkling underbelly and hideous glamour of our sprawling media conglomerate. We manufacture consent, confusion, lust and distraction in industrial amounts and toss them out all over your face. We stick our memes in your mouth, our GIFS in your eyes and our riffs in your ears. And the ratings say you love it!! The Day Room: 1pm – 4pm with Good Morning! And welcome to SHITV’s classic Breakfast show, hosted by the much-loved Duncan Gribble and Satin Fairmile.

SHITV PrimeTime: Twisted, comedy, dance and music acts holding a black mirror to the mainstream media.

The Hexagonal Towers of SHITV stand brazen and intimidating, with its web of cables, telegraph poles and over saturation of Billboards.

CND’S DARK ROOM

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) invites you to visit their Dark Room this year at Shangri-La. Do you like being kept in the dark about the UK’s nuclear weapons? Or do you feel over-exposed to the fact that it could all be over in a flash? Is getting new nukes as black and white as the government says? Should we be focusing our funds on the NHS and education instead? Either way, come develop your own opinion and tell us if YOU would push the button. The Treatment Rooms collective // Reel News // art against blacklisting

A powerful collection of the UK’s most subversive minds have banded together to be heard at Shangri-La this year. Their voices are critical and their tactics simply rebellious. They are a wily crew of undisclosed artists and culture jammers allegedly behind a number of recent acts of Public Space Reclamation. From “brandalism” in bus shelters, billboards and train carriages. To radical front line video network (Reel News) showing activist film, and The Treatment Rooms Collective behind a number of illicit interventions, most notably a ceramic intervention at the V&A’s Disobedient Objects show immortalizing the UK’s protest history.

United we are going to put a stamp on Shangri La. We are Reclaiming public space with “subvertisement” and sharing the Truth. In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act. – George Orwell

Look out for the bus stop and prepare for subversity.

WALKABOUT 15” OF FAME

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be famous? Here’s your chance! 15” of Fame is a structured reality program that follows participants as they progress through a career in the modern entertainment industry.

THE DAILY DAMAGE

Beware of the Raving roving reporters from The Daily Damage seeking gullible individuals for a dose of insidious salacious dis-information to mess with your heads and ruin your lives

THE SHANGRI-LIAR: READ ALL ABOUT IT!

Look out for the newspaper sellers and grab yourself a copy today! May this one off rag see you through the festival. It will advise you, be your friend, stylist, and never lie to you… Multiple uses – Kindling? Paper airplane? Fly swatting? Out of loo roll? Muddy wellies? All profit goes to projects in refugee camps around Europe
