Shambala 2014: Explore The Seas of Shambala!

The awesome family-friendly Shambala Festival is held each year at a top secret country estate in Northamptonshire and regularly provides one of the most diverse festival experiences that you can discover anywhere over the summer months. This year, the bank holiday weekend extravaganza will feature the carnival theme of The Seas of Shambala. We have put our heads together collectively and attempted to come up with some costume ideas that will provide you with inspiration, suggestions and maybe even a character that you'd wish to transform into.

Shambala Festival Costume Ideas

If you plan to take part and dress up (and you really should) you'll be needing some inspiration. Here's a few of our favourite outfit suggestions that we fully expect to see at this year's festival.

Mermaid Fancy Dress

Legendary maidens of the ocean, the mermaid is a perfect mythological character to become for the Seas of Shambala carnival theme. With a range of styles and sizes, the mermaid is a superb outfit choice.

Pirate Fancy Dress

Looking to traverse over the seas rather than beneath? We have an absolute load of outfits that will cater to your desire for a pirate costume. Below are a few of our favourite buccaneers.

Shambala Festival 2014

Shambala is widely regarded as the best small festival in the UK today. The festival is encompassed in mystery as the organisers seem to shy away from publicising the event in favour of maintaining an intimate and loyal attendance. The website eFestivals described Shambala as “simply the best festival adventure that you can currently have” in a review of the 2013 offering. On site there's no separate arena from the camp-site, and there's no restriction on alcohol. This is in stark contrast to the bigger festivals and both will seem to be a novelty to Shambala virgins. Boasting pop-up venues and secret and fun activities, the music that is performed over the 12 stages on site almost seems secondary to the plethora of workshops, debates and interactive theatre that you can experience. If you are looking for something different check out Shambala. Unless you don't already have a ticket that is because this year's festival is completely sold out.

The Shambala line up for 2014 includes:
Adrian Sherwood, A Guy Called Gerald, Andy C, The Apples, Babyhead, B.Traits, By The Rivers, Catrin Finch and Seckou Keita, Cocos Lovers, Collie Buddz, Cumbia All Stars, Lisa Knapp, Onlyjoe, The Rin Tins, Roska, Talisman, Young Fathers and Zion Train.
