Shambala 2016 Review

One of the things I love about Shambala is that the organisers obviously love it as much as I do. The extra thought given to details at this festival is simply incredible. This year they put on so many extra little stages and acts that I’ve decided to concentrate on the new things! If you […]

Shambala 2015 Review

Another year another Shambala Festival! For a medium sized festival, we all agree this one is hard to beat. It remains our family’s favourite festival, because it has so many different activities and exciting performances and artwork everywhere, that every year there’s something new to experience. They also listen to feedback from festival goers, meaning […]

Shambala 2014 Review

21-25 August 2014 Shambala deservedly won Festival of the Year in our awards last year. Could they deliver another award winning performance? The answer as far as our family goes is – yes! Another truly wonderful weekend from the festival that keeps on getting better and better!

Shambala 2013 Review

SHHHHambala! The secret’s out… One of the more exciting but less well known festivals in the UK is gaining fans year on year. This year it sold out weeks in advance, and I would advise anyone wanting to go next year to get tickets early. I only hope that it doesn’t grow any larger because […]

Shambala 2012 Parent Review

Shambala 2012 reviewed by Momof2MK (with 2 kids aged 10 and 4) Parking and Setting Up: There was no queue for the car park, it was well signposted and the postcode (satnav) on the ticket info actually took us to the right field. We had to park very far from where we were camping as […]

Shambala 2012 Review

After having over a week to think about my Shambala experience this year, I can safely say that it has been my favourite yet! More kids than ever, good food, peaceful camping and a great crowd. 

Shambala 2011 Review

Louise went down to Shambala Festival to check out their family friendly credentials for Festival Kidz.  Louise lives and breathes festivals, so much so that she even took her newborn baby to Glastonbury last year just days after an emergency c-section!  So what did she make of Shambala then? “Wow!  It was all the best […]

Starry Skies 2017 Review

This was my family’s first time at Starry Skies. When I showed my two children the Festival website they were both immediately sold on it. It is a beautiful family gathering, close to the Welsh border, with the main emphasis on encouraging children to enjoy their natural habitat. The event is exclusively for families, predominantly […]

Starry Skies 2015 Review

It was our first visit to Starry Skies, although we were excited about it because it is run by the same people as Shambala (my favourite of the adult festivals). Starry Skies doesn’t list itself as a music festival as such – it is more like a family camping holiday with activities. For us, this […]

Shambala

“Good morning, Shambala, it’s really good to see ya, Good morning Shambala, we’ll have lots of fun. Playing and dancing and singing songs, Shambala is where I belong!” This is the song my children have been singing all year from the moment we left Shambala festival last August – the song they sing in the […]
