WHAT TO PACK

PACKING LIST

The best way to find out what to pack is to talk to people who have been before. You can reach out on any of our social media channels. The Shambhala Music Festival Farmily Facebook Group is a great place to connect and reach out to past attendees for tips!

Below find some general tips for packing:

  • Camping Gear – Tent, chairs, sleeping bag, tarp, shade structure etc.
  • Bandana/Mask
  • Sunglasses
  • Water containers – For camp, and while you are out dancing. Free water is available with your own vessel.
  • Jacket – Temperatures will drop at night.
  • Food – We only have two food vendors at the Reunion events, so we advise that you come prepared with plenty of food.
  • Flashlight – Outside of the Downtown Area there is limited lighting.
  • Comfortable footwear – The ground is uneven and rugged, so be sure to have a good pair of walking shoes with you
  • Fire extinguisher

BANNED ITEMS

Alcohol is not permitted in the camping or downtown area of the Reunion Event site. Any found in searches will be confiscated and dumped.

No campfires or open flames of any kind are permitted on the Salmo River Ranch. It is extremely dry during the summer and provincial fire bans are regularly in effect. Do not bring candles, fireworks, fire poi/hoops/other fire toys, fuel (white gas), tiki torches, propane-powered heaters or propane campfires. You may bring cooking devices (Jet boil, propane camp stoves) but please exercise caution when cooking.

We encourage you to use LED and solar light options to light up your camp at night.

Smokers, please ensure you bring a pocket ashtray or other small container to dispose of butts. Do not toss your butts on the ground, it could easily start a fire.

All types of liquid fuel in open-nozzle containers are banned, including white gas, kerosene, gasoline in jerry cans, and any other forms of combustible liquid fuel. Refillable propane tanks are permitted.

Propane or butane cookstoves and containers are permitted. Do not leave camp stoves unattended. Gas-powered fire pits, barbecues, and anything else with an open flame are banned and will be confiscated.

Use of generators, including those built into RVs are prohibited at Shambhala Music Festival. Generators create noise and air pollution, and are not suited for our tightly-packed campgrounds.

There is no public access to electricity for personal care (ie: hair dryers) at the Salmo River Ranch. You can charge your phone at the General Store.

If you need electricity to charge your electric wheelchair, or have another medical device that requires power, please contact us at info@shambhalamusicfestival.com so we can arrange access for you. View info on ShambAbled Camping below in the Camping and Parking section.

Glass is banned to protect our guests, as well as our beloved cows, horses, ponies, donkeys and dogs who roam the Salmo River Ranch before and after the festivities. Banned glass items include large mirrors, drink containers, decorative glassware, etc.

Small jars of food (jam, condiments, pickles) are ok, but must be kept inside your camp, though we do recommend transferring these items into small, reusable containers.

No handheld laser pointers are permitted. Laser pointers can very seriously damage someone’s vision, they do not belong on the dancefloor at eye level.

Matters involving illegal substances will be turned over to the RCMP.

Only authorized Shambhala Music Festival drivers can operate motorized vehicles during the festival. The motorized vehicle ban includes minibikes, golf carts, ATVs, dirtbikes, and any other motorized items. We encourage pedal-powered transportation. Bring your bike.

Drones, quadcopters, and other magical flying machines are also banned, and will be confiscated by security if found.

Festivals are not a suitable environment for pets. Additionally, if you are staying at the Salmo Campground please note that you can not leave your pets unattended for any amount of time. Leave your pet at home in the care of someone who loves them or make other boarding arrangements. Kennels in the West Kootenay area book up very quickly for the summer months, so be sure to make arrangements for your pet well in advance if you want them to stay in our area. Guests who arrive with a pet (including dogs, cats, birds, rats, etc) will not be given access to the festival, no exceptions.

Legally recognized service animals are permitted, but must be pre-registered with us and must be approved by the landowners prior to arrival. Additionally, all service animals attending the festival must be certified in BC, even if they do not reside here. More information is available here.

Emotional support animals, therapy animals, and comfort animals are not permitted.

Weapons of any kind are not permitted at Shambhala Music Festival. This includes machetes, knives (including swiss army knives / leatherman tools with blades), swords, guns, axes, baseball bats, etc. Anything that could potentially harm another guest can be considered a weapon. Cooking knives must be under 6 inches.

At Shambhala Music Festival we do not tolerate hate speech of any kind. If you display images or symbols that represent hate, including but not limited to signs, totems, flags or attire, you will be immediately asked to leave.

We welcome each and every human being with open arms on the farm regardless of their ability, sexual orientation, gender, sex, age, race, colour, ancestry, aboriginal status, ethnic origin, place of origin, citizenship, marital and family status, immigrant status, political affiliation, religious affiliation, creed, level of literacy, or language.

If guests notice any signs, totems, etc that display concerning messaging as mentioned above, please notify a Shambhala Music Festival staff member immediately.

Granted that it is not alcohol, drugs or paraphernalia, we will do our best to return confiscated items after the show. However, there is 100% no guarantee that you will get your items back. Shambhala Music Festival does not take responsibility for lost or damaged items. We have hundreds and hundreds of banned items checked into our front gate. With our staff dropping to almost nothing by the end of the show, these items become hard to manage and may go missing. The best way to guarantee these items don’t go missing or get damaged, is to not bring them in the first place.

Synthetic feathers and boas are an environmental hazard and classify as MOOP (Matter Out of Place). These items tend to fall apart very easily and the synthetic feathers are very difficult to clean up. Any garbage that can’t be picked up by us is usually eaten by the cows, which can be harmful to their health. Please leave your synthetic feathers and boas at home.

Indigenous Headdresses are banned from the festival grounds. If you are seen wearing one you will be asked to remove it immediately.

Camping

Free Camping at the event (NOT the Salmo River Ranch Campground) is included with your ticket, for the night of the event ONLY. See our previous post for a detailed explanation of your options, or visit our website.

Free Camping is included with your ticket for the night of your event ONLY. This Free Camping is first-come, first-serve and will accommodate all campers - tents, trailers, RVs, all are welcome.

The Free Camping zone included with your ticket is located right next to the Downtown zone of Shambhala Music Festival in close proximity to the event. There will not be any free camping in the forest available so please be prepared to make your own shade.

Camping at the Salmo River Ranch Campground

The Salmo River Ranch Campground is open for bookings before or after the event with many shady campsites available! If you wish to camp before or after the event (i.e. Friday or Sunday night), you will need to reserve a campsite using the online reservation system: https://www.salmocampground.com/

The Salmo River Ranch Campground is about 15-20 minutes walking distance from the event site. Please be mindful that while pets are permitted in the campground, they must not be left unattended for any amount of time. Additionally, quiet hour begins at 11 pm, so we ask that you are mindful of your fellow campers. Guests of the campground will be able to access the beach at the campground. 

Amenities

Due to the small nature of the Reunion Events, we won’t have all the amenities we offer at Shambhala. All essential services such as Medical will be available. Some amenities and features that will be available include: 

  • ANKORS drug testing 
  • Roaming harm reduction support 
  • Food vendors - There will be two food vendors on-site offering gourmet wraps and sandwiches, as well as tasty tacos! With that said, since food options will be extremely limited we would advise that you come with ample food. 
  • Artisan vendors - There will be two artisan vendors operating, as well as the festival’s General Store with limited merch items. 
  • Water tree 

Amenities that will not be available include: 

  • Cell service/wifi 
  • Safe Space & Sanctuary 
  • All stages outside of the stage hosting the event 
  • River access 

COVID-19 Protocols

Our Stage Reunion Events will follow all health and safety protocols laid out by the British Columbia Government as per our Communicable Disease Plan. To learn more about what you can do to be mindful of COVID-19 please read the following points 👇🏼

  • Please consider wearing a mask in high-density areas (it is dry and hot, so this can double as a dust protection measure). 
  • Do NOT come to the event if you are feeling sick, even if symptoms are mild. Please reach out to info@shambhalamusicfestival.com if you cannot attend due to COVID-19.
  • There will be handwashing and sanitizing stations located throughout the farm, and we ask that you also bring your own hand sanitizer as well. 
  • Please be mindful of those around you who are wearing masks or physical distancing, and be sure to respect their boundaries.
  • Ask for consent before touching people (this is across the board, consent is ALWAYS mandatory). 
  • Proof of vaccination is not required to attend the event, though the BC Centre for Disease Control strongly advises that guests are vaccinated and those who aren’t vaccinated wear a mask.

River Access 

Unfortunately due to the increased fire risk, ongoing construction on the site, and the nature of these much smaller events, beach access will not be available. We are making this decision with the safety of our guests in mind. Our team is taking the high temperatures into consideration and is working on ways to help our Farmily stay cool. With that said, access to the beach will be available at the Living Room Reunion given the stage’s close proximity to the beach.

Getting Home

All guests who are operating a vehicle are required to be completely sober and have had at least 8 hours of rest before leaving the festival site. For the AMP Stage Reunion event, guests will begin to leave the farm on Sunday at 12 pm and must leave the festival grounds by 3 pm. With that said, guests may leave earlier than 12 pm on Sunday provided that they are sober and well-rested. Please drive safely.

Reunion Ticket FAQs

Showpass will only let you transfer your ticket ONCE, so please make sure you have the accurate names for you and your guests. All tickets need to match the ID of the patron wanting to use the ticket.

Please see the instructions on how to transfer your ticket: https://help.showpass.com/hc/en-us/articles/360023831873-How-can-I-transfer-my-tickets-or-products-to-a-friend-

As per the terms and conditions, there are no exchange or refunds. Please see more at https://shambhalamusicfestival.com/reunion-terms-and-conditions/

Unfortunately guests cannot redeem their Shambhala Music Festival tickets for a Reunion Event ticket. The ticket prices between the two events are vastly different and thus the value would not transfer.

Currently, we do not have any other Reunion events confirmed. However due to the success of the first two events our team is working hard to add additional Reunion events. Please keep your eyes on our social media channels for more event updates. 🙂

There were 1500 tickets sold to each reunion event, which is well below the 5,000 person capacity for events according to the BC Guidelines. We think that a smaller audience will make for a more intimate and safer experience for our guests.

At this time we do not have a confirmed shuttle from the Campground to the event, however, it is something we are working on.

The lineup will be released in the coming days. As always, you can expect a stacked lineup from our Stage Directors.
