Info About Buying Tix from 3rd Parties. SHAMBHALA 2011 TIX SOLD OUT.


 So, Shambhazens – all 10,000 of you are on the Road To Shambhala. Congratulations! We hope this summer brings you plenty of love, sunshine and happiness as you journey toward our mythical city in the BC mountains.

In light of tickets being sold out online and at official retailers, we expect there will be some of you scrambling to get a ticket from any possible source you can find – so we wanted to provide you with some information to protect yourself from fraud.

Shambhala does not take responsibility for tickets sold through 3rd parties, and cannot guarantee the validity of these tickets. It is up to you to protect yourself from fraud. We recommend the following:

  • See what information the seller will give you. They should be able to send you a copy of the transaction receipt so that you know the order is legitimate, or be able to tell you the store they bought it in.
  • Be cautious when purchasing tickets through Craigslist or Kijiji or any other classifieds website. This is historically where most of the scams happen. Other options: We have a Ticket Trading Post on our website’s forums (you will need to sign up for an account if you don’t have one already), or you can try the Shambhala Facebook page / event page.
  • Where possible, buy tickets through referrals from friends you trust. It’s always safer buying from within your own social network. You’re a lot less likely to get scammed by a friend of a friend.
  • We cannot offer any advice on the exchange of tickets / money, except that, if at all possible MEET UP IN PERSON to do the exchange. We have heard stories of both ticket sellers and ticket buyers being scammed by sending money in advance of receiving tickets, and vice versa. Trust your intuition – if it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it.
  • If you are purchasing a “Will Call” ticket, then there are certain pieces of identification that you will require from the person you are purchasing from in order to pick up the ticket. Please see “How do I pick up my ticket from ‘Will Call’” in the Will Call section of our Ticket FAQ.

Once again, Shambhala does not guarantee the validity of any tickets purchased privately, and does not assume any responsibility for ticket fraud – tickets purchased from 3rd parties are bought at your own risk.

We love you all and urge you take the proper steps to protect yourselves from ticket fraud!

And also, a reminder to those of you with extra tickets: BE GOOD FARMILY. SHAMBHALOVLIES DON’T SCALP TICKETS.

If you have extra Shambhala tickets, be mindful and compassionate. You wouldn’t rip off your own family – and we Shambhazens – we’re all FARMILY. Sell extra tickets for a fair price (or, consider simply giving a ticket to someone. It’ll feel great). Bring all our brothers and sisters Home to dance under the stars with us. ♥

“I gave my spare ticket away in line in 2009 to a guy who was asking for money to buy a ticket. Pretty sure I made his festival as well as got my shambhala experience started off with a bang. Much more fulfilling than scalping it.” – Chris Meyer, on the Shambs FB Page

Posted on the Shambhala website yesterday:

WOW!!! Unbelievable. Tickets for Shambhala 2011 are completely sold out, a full 2 months earlier than last year!

Ticket holders – you are all On The Road to Shambhala! We wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU for all your support. We have an incredible show lined up for you this year, and cannot wait for our FARMILY to come home to the Salmo River Ranch to dance under the stars with us.

Those of you who did not get tickets this year – we’re sorry we have a limited capacity, and cannot accomodate everyone, but we hope that you’ll join us for Shambhala 2012, or some other year in the future! Tickets go on sale in mid to late October, so start saving now to guarantee you’ll be with us next summer!

We love you all, and can’t wait to see you.

Keep spreading the SHAMBHALOVE, and we’ll see you in August.

Yeaaaaaaah!!!!

Much love from all of us at Shambhala

    Hi! If anyone has 2 spare tickets for sale, I would absolutely love the opportunity to go. I shared in the experience in 2006 and since have become a devoted mother who is finally ready to spend 4 days away from her girl to share in this amazing experience once again!! I have a 7 passenger SUV that I’d be driving there in, from Kelowna, so if anyone’s willing to sell two tickets I could also provide a ride for 4 extra shambhalovelies! heather.ml@hotmail.com

    Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a blogger, and
    I was wanting to know your situation; we have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to trade
    strategies with others, be sure to shoot me
    an email if interested.
