Shambala 2023 was fully-vegetarian with what is offered from the trader stalls. Attendees were welcome to bring their own food to cook for themselves.Expect the 2024 edition to follow a similar 'policy'.

Bottled-water-free festival

Instead of being able to buy bottles of water festival goers are being asked to bring a reusable bottle which they can refill with free filtered water available at all of bars on site. Festival organisers enthusiastically predict this will reduce waste by an estimated 10,000 plastic bottles.

This year Shambala are also offering 'bottles for life' from their ticket page.

Green credentials

In 2023 the festival hoped to once again be 100% powered by renewable energy, by the wind, sun, waste veg oil and pedalling! Lot's more eco initiatives are expected to be on site too.

Many activities will have themes around cultural awareness, and the environment.
