Take Shambhala Home with You

Blog by Rikki MacCuish

This blog was inspired by the inside of a porta potty.

I’m a skeptic when it comes to flowery peace-and-love “hippy” talk. I don’t believe in goddesses or messages from the stars; but I do believe in the power of community. On the outside Shambhala Music Festival is a five day freak fest full of flashy lights, loud bass, and beautiful bodies. But as they say it’s what inside that counts, and it’s what’s inside Shambhala that makes the festival special. This special quality is something each and every one of us brings to the festival and something that we can all learn from and take home with us.

Many of us come to the festival from big cities, places that alienate people and create material jealousy. We’re bombarded by persuasive advertising, our lives are dictated by money and energy wars. We’ve lost touch with the importance of social capital and have focused instead on surrounding ourselves with cars, clothes, and Apple products. Many studies point to the facts that we’re fatter, more stressed out and more out of touch with nature than we’ve ever been. Our view of reality is falsely constructed and slowly caving in on itself.

Events and places like Shambhala offer an opportunity to get back to your roots, to discover what really matters in life. It’s amazing how liberating ditching your smartphone for a weekend is, and how great a cup of camp stove coffee tastes while you share funny stories with your friends and new acquaintances. The one thing that I’m most impressed about whenever I go to Shambhala — 2013 was my sixth year — is how nice everyone is. No one yells at you in traffic, or skips the coffee line, or scoffs or gawks at a naked person on the beach. People smile, hug and encourage. I hope everyone will take this positivity home and share it.

My aim isn’t to put Shambhala on a pedestal as if it were Mecca — there are many great places in the world and big festivals do have their flaws (environmental damage, etc.) but they offer us a glimpse of what life could be like if we tried hard enough to maintain the community lifestyle we take on for that week on the Salmo River Ranch. Eco-villages and co-op living situations around the world are already proving this is possible long-term in our post-modern age, and they’re not just “hippy communes”. It’s a social movement and anyone can be a part of it.

The Dalai Lama XIV said in The Art of Happiness, “Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” Hugging strangers, sharing and helping each other out may happen in what seems like fleeting moments, but I’m sure that many of you can recall a special moment from Shambhala that made you feel, for that few moments, that all was right with the world. For a moment war, famine, environmental destruction, human rights violations, drug abuse — it all stops. And I don’t think it’s escapism, I think it’s a form of personal and maybe even social evolution, knowing that no matter what happens there is always an opportunity to change things for the better.

How do we take this back to the real world? I still feel uncomfortable making eye contact with people in the streets here in Victoria, I still get road rage when someone doesn’t use their turn signal and I still feel annoyed when someone talks on their phone while ordering coffee. I’ll be honest, everyday ignorance physically and emotionally exhausts me. But like many of you I’m sure, I’m conscious that opportunities will present themselves wherein I can help make someone’s day better by passing on good feelings and compassion.

I was inspired to write this blog by the doors of porta potties at Shambhala. I don’t know if the festival will condone this type of expression because I’m sure those things are a pain in the ass to clean but there was a lot of wisdom scrawled on those dirty doors! Shambhala needs a positive message board with glow pens next year (hint, hint). Let’s bring it out in the open (and hopefully decrease those washroom lineups!). One of the messages I read was, “take Shambhala home with you”, something no doubt copied from their schedule pamphlet but important nonetheless. In marketing they call it the rule of seven. You read something seven times before it sinks in. Well, I had the joy of sitting in that same porta potty at least seven times over the whole weekend and it’s sunk in.

I think the best place to start is by expressing gratitude and paying it forward. Let’s practice what we preach (and let’s be honest, there is a LOT of preaching that goes on online).

I’ll start: thanks random guy who gave me a cherry ring pop because you thought my terrible dubstep thrashing was cool; thanks to our lineup neighbour who shared his cold-water spray-fan in the blistering heat; and most of all, thanks to my amazing now-fiance Tom for making my life so amazing and for sharing so many great adventures with me — we decided we were officially in a relationship on the way to Shambhala six years ago and he proposed to me on our anniversary Saturday night in Shambhala’s beautiful new garden space. I know we weren’t the only ones to get engaged that weekend and it’s so awesome knowing that our story is a familiar one there.

By now, most of you are back home, back at work going about the motions of daily life. It can be a bit of culture shock returning from somewhere that allowed you to feel so free. But I hope we can all continue to evolve this emerging social movement where youth can take charge of our own futures, rearrange our value hierarchies and allow one another to be without judgement. And most of all, I hope to see you all again next year at Shambhala Music Festival!

❤ ❤ HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement, Rikki & Tom, from the entire Shambhala Fam. We love Shambhalove! ❤ ❤

Parking, Camping & Entry Process, Shambhala 2013

2013 Parking Map

PARKING DECALS:

It’s about cars, not camping. Tenting is free in all areas, except ShambhaLodging. 

The New Drop Zone (#3) & Baggage Shuttle

Because of past issues with the Drop Zone near Metta (people taking advantage and parking in Starlight instead of returning to Free Parking, as well as excessive dust), vehicles will no longer be allowed past the zone that they are decaled for.

The baggage shuttle will run from the New Drop Zone (#3) down the main road. The more organized people are with their gear, the more efficient it will be!

Baggage shuttle is by donation, proceeds go to the Kootenay Romanian Relief Organization.

Free Parking (#1)“No Camping” Zone

Enjoy free parking all weekend long!  With a Free Parking Decal, you won’t have to pay extra for parking, and you can camp pretty much anywhere you want. Guests who park in Free Parking can use our “New Drop Zone” to drop their gear off closer to the festival before parking their car. No RVs or trailers in the Free Parking Lot. Free Parking is a “No Camping” zone.

*Note: If you park in Free Parking, you can still camp with your friends in the Sunshine or Starlight Camping Zones who have purchased parking passes!

Sunshine Camping  (#4)

Sunshine Camping (#4) has great flat ground only a 10 min walk from the downtown.  With Sunshine Camping (#4), you have the option to park your vehicle at your camp.  This camping lot is the family hay field, where the Salmo River Ranch produces a beautiful crop of hay before the festival.  It is located right next to Free Parking (#1).

Starlight Camping (#9) is closer to the festival’s downtown and less parking decals are available. Starlight Camping is on a first come first serve basis.  This area is smaller every year. Eventually no vehicles will be permitted here.

Enjoy the new terraces. Thank you for reducing your imprint!

Screen shot 2013-07-30 at 2.50.57 PM

Why does Shambhala have Early Entry? Once upon a festival, the Shambhala was a a weekend festival, Friday-Sunday – but as the years went on, people kept showing up earlier. In an effort to get people off the dangerous highway & keep them safe (the speed limit is 100km/hr), we allowed our ticket holders to come on site a few days early for an additional rate. Early Entry pricing offsets the costs of additional staffing and service levels for the extra festival days (including the recent extension of Monday through Tuesday morning post-show to allow people a good night’s sleep on Monday).

Everything you need to know about WILL CALL

SB Dan Berk

This is Dan.

Hey Shambhalovlies!

So, our Ticket Administrator, Dan, is getting A LOT of emails about the ticket ordering & pick up process now that we’re no longer shipping tickets.

We stopped shipping tickets as of NOON, June 28th, 2013 as a precaution, to make sure that you’re able to access your tickets by the time of the show. We want to make sure that throughout July, people aren’t anxiously waiting for tickets to be shipped to them, only to have their order hit their mailbox after they’re supposed to be On the Road to Shambhala.

Enter, WILL CALL.

2013tickets

So what is “Will Call“? It’s a pretty common box office term in North America that simply means, “for pick up.” That’s it. You pick your ticket up at the festival.

It sounds like a lot of you want to know a little bit more about Will Call before you order. That’s cool! We’ve got the details for you.

web_JESSE_MAZURICK _2012DSC_0030

^^^ Pick Up Your Tix Here ^^^

Here’s the super simple process for picking up WILL CALL tickets:

  • HIGH VOLUME TIMES: If the lineups in the Fairy Lot are long, parking staff will direct you to park in the Fairy Lot line.  Then you will walk back to the Reception building for Will Call (this way, you don’t lose your place in line).
  • LOW VOLUME TIMES: Drive toward the Reception building for Will Call. Park in designated Will Call parking area. 
  • To pick up a ticket YOU ordered: Present Reception Crew with your Paypal transaction receipt & 2 valid pieces of ID (1 piece of valid, gov’t issued photo ID, one supporting piece of ID).
  • To pick up a ticket SOMEONE ELSE ordered: Did a friend or family member buy your Will Call ticket for you? No problem – it’s almost the same process. Present Reception Crew with a copy of:
    • a Paypal transaction receipt for the order.
    • a photocopy of the valid, gov’t issued photo ID of the original purchaser.
    • a signed letter from the original purchaser giving you permission to pick up the ticket held under their name (the letter must include your full legal name, as it appears on your ID).
    • Your 2 valid pieces of ID (1 piece of valid, gov’t issued photo ID, one supporting piece of ID).
  • Pick up your pre-ordered tickets at Will Call.
  • Return to your vehicle to proceed to ticket processing.

That’s all there is to it!

This is where you pick up your Will Call tickets.

This is where you pick up your Will Call tickets.

Will Call is safe, easy and secure – your ticket is already at the festival, so you don’t have to worry about losing it or forgetting it.

Don’t wait! Grab your tickets soon! There have been a couple surges of ticket sales in the past week. See you in 18 days!

If you’re in Vancouver, Kelowna, Nelson or Calgary, you can also pick up tickets locally in one of our Ticket Stores!
