It’s no secret that we here at DMNW are huge fans of Shambhala Music Festival. Last year we even made a guide to successfully planning to attend in 2016, and that’s because we want to see you there! Our favorite part about the farm is somewhere between the diverse stages, floating on the river, the positive vibes, and the all-encompassing Shambhalove. Simply put, it’s absolutely incredible and we can’t wait to go back. But here’s the thing: It’s (almost) completely sold out.
That’s right, retail outlets are completely sold out of hard copy tickets, as well as the stock of online tickets. There’s only one way to ensure tickets online or otherwise, and that’s by purchasing Shambhalodging on the Shambhala ticket site. Upon selecting a Shambhalodging package, you’ll be given the option to purchase weekend passes from there, but that’s the only way to get in!
We’re still weeks away from getting a lineup, and this is the fastest sell out in Shambhala’s 19 year history (the festival sold out online but not at retail outlets in 17 days back in 2012). One thing is for sure, and that’s that the word is spreading. The cool thing about Shambhala is that it really can’t get much bigger than it is, since the area can only comfortably fit so many people (the festival caps ticket sales every year at around 11,000). So in the future if this trend continues, we’ll just have to snag our tickets earlier and earlier as word spreads.
Just so we’re clear, regular camping is included with your weekend pass. Shambhalodging is the leveled-up version of camping at the Farm, providing you with expedited entry as early as Wednesday, August 3rd, complimentary parking, and a reserved 10×10 campsite. There are only a certain number of Shambhalodging passes available, so if you want to come explore the Salmo River Ranch with us this Summer, you’d better reserve your spot and tickets now.
We wish you the best of luck in making your arrangements, and we hope to see you this August! Who are you hoping to see on the lineup when it drops in a few weeks?
