Be Prepared

It’s difficult to predict how long wait times will be because we don’t know exactly how many people are going to show up before the gates open. It could be as little as a few minutes (more likely from Friday onwards) or several hours. If you arrive early to the ranch, be prepared for long wait times between 6 and 12 hours. Regardless of when you arrive, come prepared for the heat of the day. Make sure you have things like sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, appropriate clothing, lots of water (4L per person), at least one substantial meal, and snacks. For extra comfort, consider keeping a couple icepacks and a spray bottle (to mist yourself and others) in your cooler. Above all be patient, you’re only moments away from Home.

Why does Shambhala have Early Entry?

Will Call

Will Call tickets can be claimed at the Reception building located near the main gate. Upon arriving at the farm you will meet many of our staff on the way in.  Mention that you are picking up tickets at Will Call and they will direct you to Reception. Need to leave a ticket at the gate for a friend? You can register tickets on the Will Call list for a $10 registration fee – be sure you know your friend’s full name as seen on their gov’t ID (you can leave notes/maps for friends this way too!).

Wristbands

If your wristband becomes loose or falls off, hold on to it, keep it safe and make your way back to the gate for a replacement! You must have both your ticket and the damaged wristband to receive a replacement. If you feel like your wristband might break, be proactive and get it replaced before it happens.

Re-Entry Policy

If you need go to town and come back during the festival, there is a re-entry fee of $10 per person, per re-entry, payable upon your return.
