Some of you surely must be going to the best small/medium sized festival I've been to.

I am going for the 2nd time. Last attended in 2016 and really enjoyed it.

Hoping this nice warm weather sticks around as a non-welly/walking boot festival is always better in my mind.

As someone who got to see Sister Sledge & Anoushka Shankar headline last time I went, I have to say I am a tad disappointed with the line-up as recognised barely any names. But maybe that is more telling of my musical taste than their line-up.

Also I am not naive enough to not realise that Covid cancellations will also have had a huge hit on budgets for bookings and the like. So fingers crossed I find something new on the line-up to enjoy long after the festival has finished.

Overall really like their general message and ethos which is one of the main reasons for returning.

I don't recognise much either, but I fully trust Shambala and I'm sure I'll find some new (to me) stuff I really like.

Biggest disappointment for me - Kamikaze seems to have gone.

I went for the first time when it was "Shambino" during Covid.

It was a much smaller festival, but it was good. You could really feel there was a lot missing though, and something wasn't quite right. Really intrigued to experience the full thing for the first time.

I have semi-retired / almost fully retired from festivals. However, I have just put my hat in the ring to 'win' two tickets to Shambala by donating £5 to charity. If it's a win if I win, and if it's a lose,  somebody else wins - result.

You've got to love the good folk behind the festival. It was the first festival that I went to that was 'green' beyond compare, at that time. Way ahead of the game.

Anyway, that's enough of the sycophantic behaviour.

It is a great festival though.

Enjoy.

It's still way ahead of the game and constantly working on improvements.

By far the best small medium festival I've been to.

I was becoming very jaded with festivals, fully beleiving that they'd all "lost the plot" and no one had any idea what a festival should look like.

Then many years ago I took a chance on Shambala and was gob-smacked, they really understand.
