Welcome to ShambhaLodging

A reserved, shady campsite waiting for your expedited arrival!


Thank you to all of our ShambhaLodgers for 2017!

All ShambhaLodging packages  for Shambhala 2017 have been sold. We’ll see you all at the farm in August.


Are you travelling to come to Shambhala? Don’t have any space in your vehicle for camping gear? Want to skip the holding lots during entry? Just want the peace of mind of having a reserved space in the trees? Our four different Lodging packages add the little bit of extra comfort and assistance in helping provide a smooth experience for you when coming to the festival. Order from our ticket page here.




Our ShambhaLodging space is a monitored camping area in the forest of the Salmo River Ranch. Each campsite is levelled and landscaped to ensure a comfortable, shady place to set up your tent with your Lodging guest and enjoy your Shambhala experience. With only a four to five minute walk to the Pagoda stage, it offers a bit of tranquility from the excitement of the festival, while still being located close to the action. Our lodging hosts are available 24 hours a day during the festival to ensure you have an enjoyable and safe experience.

All guests who purchase a ShambhaLodging package will receive the following added benefits:

  • Complimentary early entry fees for themselves and another guest within the same vehicle (a value of up to $160). Central Park lodgers will enjoy complimentary early entry for up to four guests with them in the vehicle.
  • Expedited gate entry through our VIP entry lane.
  • A reserved campsite within our ShambhaLodging zone
  • Complimentary parking for one vehicle within our nearby ShambhaLodging parking lot. Fancy Pants and Central Park lodgers are allowed to park at their campsite
  • Access to our friendly ShambhaLodging hosts 24 hours a day
  • Port-a-potties located nearby

Available Packages

Campsite Only

Our campsite only packages provide you with a 10’ x 10’ campsite in which to set up your own tent. No camping gear is included with this package, so you will need to bring everything you need with you to ensure an enjoyable camping experience. Make sure to measure your tent before you come as it will need to fit within a 10’ x 10’ space.

SOLD OUT

BASSics

If you don’t want to lug in your tent and air mattress, our BASSics package offers all the perks of our Campsite Only package with an added tent and air mattress setup and waiting for you on your arrival, you just need to bring your pillows and bedding with you, or you can purchase them as an upgrade during checkout.

SOLD OUT

Fancy Pants

A full camp setup in a luxurious 10’ x 12’ canvas tent. This package includes all the amenities, a deluxe air mattress, bedding, two lawn chairs, cooler, water jug, free showers, and parking directly at your campsite.

SOLD OUT

Central Park

RV site hookups right in the middle of downtown. Bring your RV / Trailer and enjoy 30amps of power, daily freshwater refill and sani-dump. All of this in the middle of the action with your trailer right next door to the Pagoda stage.

      Our lodging staff can make a certain number of exceptions in special circumstances, but these are limited and need to have good justification. After purchasing your lodging package, you will need to reach out to lodging@shambhalamusicfestival.com to see if special exceptions can be arranged for you.

      Please note that our Campsite-Only packages are restricted to a 10ft by 10ft plot of land, so large tents are not permitted. There are some double and triple sites for those who wish to purchase multiple packages with friends and bring a larger tent.

      Last year, even though we intentionally undersold our campsite-only sites, we were still required to develop last-minute sites due to lodging guests bringing too large of a campsite with them. Although we try to be as accommodating as we can to our Lodging guests, we will be enforcing our size restrictions more this year. It will be important that your campsite fits within your designated zone.

    If I were to buy a basics package, is the $600 plus tax for 2 people? Or is it $600 each? And then I would have to pay for a ticket on top of that? Cheers 🙂

      Hey Cassandra,

      ShambhaLodging pricing is based on double occupancy (up to two people sharing the site), so it would be $600 for the two of you. You would be required to purchase tickets on top of that as well.

    How many square feet are the campsites for The Bassics? Additionally, are other people who have not purchased Shambhalodging allowed to visit the campsite?

      The BASSics sites have the same square footage restriction, however, we generally don’t have issues as we set these up for you 🙂

      Your friends are allowed to visit with you, but may run into access issues if they are not accompanied by you or your lodging guest.

    Can three people stay in fancy pants? And if my pickup is parked there can I set up my in the box tent?
    Much thanks in advance 🙂

      Hey Lawrence. Only two people are permitted per campsite and our lodging hosts would be unlikely to permit you to setup a campsite for a friend in your parking space, even if it’s a tent for the box of your truck.

    I’m interested in lodging but usually travel with 4 people in my vehicle. Im wondering what happens for early entry with more than 2 people.
    Will I be able to get in through express line with them in my vehicle and then have them pay their early entry etc at the gate?

      If you come through the gate with your friends, they will be able to accompany you in your vehicle throughout the process, but will need to pay early entry when they come through the gate.

    If I were to buy my tickets today and buy the shambalodging another day will it be sold out by then or is it gonna be fine to wait a week or so to purchase “The Bassics”?

      You should be okay, Heather. Our lodging packages are very popular, but there should still be some when you want to purchase them next week.

      Hi Heather. Typically our lodging packages, especially our Bassics package, tend to sell out fairly fast. Usually way before our tickets do. However, we seem to be a pretty popular event this year and orders are coming in fast. The only way to ensure that you get both lodging and tickets, is to act sooner than later.

      Hey Ali, Lodging Add-ons are little extras that you can add onto your ShambhaLodging package. You must have a ShambhaLodging package in order to purchase the add-ons. Sorry! If you have purchased a lodging package you can add on:

      -Bedding: 2 comforters, 2 pillows, 1 set of sheets – $100
      -Cooler & Water Jug: 45L capacity cooler, 23L capacity water jug – $45
      -Lawn Chairs: Set of 2 lawn chairs – $35

      You can simply rent these items for the weekend so you don’t have to bring extra gear to the farm. If you have additional questions feel free to contact sales@shambhalamusicfestival.com

    Hi there, I was just curious how many total “just campsite” packages you start with, and roughly how many are left? I have a friend trying to convince about 20 of us to buy them but I wanted to know if that’s even possible with how many are available. Thanks!

      We’ve got you covered for an order of 10 sites (based on 20 people). Based on our last inventory assessment of Lodging, we still have well over a hundred campsite-only packages remaining.

      For some unknown reason, our Lodging sales always get another surge once the snow starts melting, so it would be a good idea to commit in the relatively near-ish future (mid-February / early March). Although Lodging packages are given out on a first-come first-serve basis, our lodging coordinator can reserve a block of adjacent sites for you given the size of your group.

      Glad to hear that you are considering the ShambhaLodging experience, if you have any additional questions, feel free to add them below, or you can contact our lodging team at lodging@shambhalamusicfestival.com.

      Also how close is the tents to the music? I would be worried about getting SOME sleep lol. So if it’s too close, it may not be good for me. Even with earplugs.

        Hey Whendy, Lodging is located approximately 5-10 minutes away from the stages. You can pretty much hear music from every corner of the property, so we suggest you bring your earplugs regardless. If you want to look into Lodging, check out this map.

          Last year, I was in the sunshine lot (or something like that), but that was far enough (with earplugs) to get sleep. So if it’s 5-10min, that may be ok!

          New question though, is there a way to pay off shambalodging? I was wanting to get the fancy pants, but wanted to pay off over 3 months. Is this do able?

            Hey Whendy,

            Unfortunately, we don’t offer any sort of payment plan, however, our BASSics and Campsite-Only packages still have a fairly healthy supply remaining.

    Good day,

    I bought a fancy pants package for this year and am looking forward to enjoying that experience. My question has to do with the early access. You see, we’re getting to the farm by ride share with a few of our friends, who do not have lodging packages. The vehicle is still the one we’re going to put the decal on and park at the site. I’m just wondering if since other occupants in the vehicle do not have lodging if they would have to wait in the regular line or if we’d all be allowed to line up as the one vehicle with express entry privileges. Of course only the two of us in lodging would have early entry fee waived, but I figured I’d ask about the vehicle early.

      Hi! You would be able to take advantage of the express lane entry with your friends as long as you are all in the same vehicle. And as you mentioned, they would have to pay the early-entry fee. See you on the farm in August!

    Hi,
    So I’ve purchased the fancy pants lodging and I’m just curious about the parking situation on our campsite. I’ll be driving a new truck up that I obviously don’t want tons of people running around and potentially scratching/banging up.. Is our campsite going to be relatively seperate from others or are they tightly packed together? Is the parking spot out of the way?

      Hi Sarah, Parking for our Fancy Pants lodgers is located directly beside the site in a fairly secluded forested area.

    Hi, I bought Shambhalodging for two, but am bringing a third person in the vehicle. I understand they will have to pay the early entry fee when the gates open, but will this change our VIP entry?

      March 10, 2016

      No it will not. Guests travelling with lodgers are welcome to catch a ride into the festival and enjoy the express lane entry. However, as mentioned they will have to pay applicable early-entry fees.

    Hi, Our group is thinking about arriving and setting up our campsite only shambhalodging site late on Wednesday. Would the VIP entry lane cut down considerably on the expected 6-12 hour wait time for the regular line? Any estimated wait times for the VIP line?

      March 18, 2016

      Hi! It is gosh darn impossible to predict how the line-ups are going to move every year. However, the longest wait times are going to be in the morning on Wednesday. Since you have purchased lodging with us, you will get to enjoy our express lane entry which will considerably cut down your wait times. I would recommend that you arrive later to avoid the chaos of gate opening. If you want to find our how to score sites for a group in lodging, check out the Lodging FAQ.

    We purchased a bassics package when we bought our tickets and our tickets arrived but they didn’t have any info on the campsite. We are driving all the way from Minneapolis so I was curious how the entry process is different when you have purchased lodging. Shorter wait times? Is a separate ticket for the camp site coming in the mail? How do the people scanning tickets know that you have purchased a campsite? Any tips are much appreciated:)

      That is wonderful that you are travelling so far to come see us on the farm!

      Our guests that have purchased lodging will be able to enjoy our express lane entry once you reach the top of the driveway.

      We do not mail out anything out for lodging. Once we get closer to showtime, we will be e-mailing you a parking placard and additional information about lodging. If you are a first time lodger, I recommend that you check out our Lodging FAQ for more details about the arrival process. If you still have additional questions, feel free to contact lodging@shambhalamusicfestival.com .

      Unfortunately, our Fancy Pants and Central Park lodging packages are the only packages that allow you to park at your campsite. However, the lodging parking lots are located quite close to our lodging check-in building.

    Hi Shambhaldoing gang.
    Somehow (assuming through Paypal) my car printout decal/reservation is booked under my maiden name and not my married name, which all my ID’s are now under. Will this be a problem when checking in? If so please let me know how we can fix this. Looking forward to be back home on the ranch.

    Hi,

    I’m thinking of buying a Central Park RV Pass second hand.

    We’re fine with a louder spot for camping and figure with ear plugs we’ll be fine to fall asleep.

    My question is if it DOES end up being too loud for my group, can we move our RV over to sunshine lot to be away from the action if worst comes to worst?

    Thanks!
