Shambhala Mini-Doc “Set The Stage” Shows the Hard Work of Festival Planning

Have you ever wondered what work goes into creating your favorite festival? Well the creators of Shambhala are showing us just that, in their recently released a mini-documentary called Set the Stage. Set the Stage, created by Shambhala Films, talks to a number of great minds that created the magical place that so many people escape to each summer at Salmo River Ranch in Canada.

The documentary interviews people that put in 14-hour days, and are even often running on 2-3 hours of sleep weeks before the festival begins. With each interview you see the passion and love the creators have for the music, art and the festival.

There are a number of interesting things shared in the documentary. Set the Stage shows you the land that this great festival is built upon and how they create the images on the stages. The best part is that you are hearing all the information first hand from people that create the festival.

They have been doing this for a long time and they know what makes the stages, lighting and images work well together. Each of the volunteers, contractors and workers know that they are doing something awesome; they are creating an escape for people.

Many people each year escape to a festival to experience a mutual love of music and art. Being able to hear what goes into a festival is a eye opener. People are very passionate about Shambhala, and you can learn a little bit more about why in the mini-documentary.

Are you one of those passionate people who attend Shambhala every year? What part of the festival do you appreciate the most?
