The Pagoda is a temple of myth, lore, and legend. The seven-story house of worship has been designed by the Pagoda stage Druids as a symbol of the collective love felt by the people who gather to connect with each other at Shambhala. It is said that when dancing beneath the Pagoda people can also connect with their true selves.
The Pagoda channels the energy released by our farmily’s fears, anxieties, insecurities and negative emotions, completely destroying them and leaving nothing but a feeling of Shambhalove and connectedness. In this process, the Pagoda transforms into almost anything you can imagine. Mystikal creatures, Gothic temples, spirits, animals. We have even seen it change into a hamburger. Pagoda is setting the bar for the future and the past of dance music. It’s timeless connection with the global musical journey is meeting here for you under the trees at Shambhala.
The Village Stage is an experience unlike any other; an immersive environment surrounded by decorated paths and the treehouse walkways of your childhood dreams.
The main stage is adorned with an eighty-foot geodesic structure that encompasses a chandelier-like roof. Under this amazing form, you will find the world’s greatest talents in both the electronic and analog realms. Expect to be transported to another dimension at The Village. The stage is entirely stage decorated in an ancient tribal dialect, of which, is mostly a mystery…with one exception; a recurring glyph that has been roughly translated as “Krinkoia”. Experts believe this was an ancient tribe of aliens that may have crash-landed on Earth many ages ago, and that perhaps The Village was a place of their worship; a place of togetherness.
