What to expect

Main stage

Main focus of Shalanaya is definitely music. The main stage brings you the best of psytrance, techno and tech-house China has to offer, all day and all night, with top-notch sound.

Chillout stage

The famous Shalanaya Chillout stage, as you may know it from Dragon Burn and Midi Electronic festivals, lets you sink into a beanbag, fills your ears with the best psybient and ambient music, surrounded by psychedelic art and the smell of Indian incense.

Live Music

It is not all about electronic music – come and listen to the best live acts Shanghai has to offer. There are jam sessions too – bring your instruments!

Fire stage

Flow arts and fire spinning has always been core part of Shalanaya. Every day watch astonishing fire performances, and discover your flow in poi, staff and hula hoop workshops.

Food & Crafts

You are what you eat, and we pay great attention to feed you well. Local and international cousine is accompanied by several vendors from Shanghai and Zhujiajiao. Local craftsmen will be offering you their handmade crafts and clothes. Would you like to get a vendor table at Shalanaya? Get in touch!



We believe in sharing and constant learning. Every year there are dozens of workshops for everyone to attend. Yoga, acroyoga, meditation, jamming and flow arts are just a few subjects you can discover. Would you lke to give a workshop? Shalanaya is the best place for you to share and to find great audience. Get in touch!


The Dome

Did we say acrobatics workshops? This is where they happen. The geodesic dome is the place to climb, hang, jump, or just chill and look at things from above.


Spending a few days in nature is one of the best gifts you can give to your mind. Bring your tent, your good friends, fall asleep and wake up with fresh air and view of the sky.


Our mind-opening psychedelic art and decorations will leave no doubt that you are in a place far from ordinary.


Why are we doing all this? Besides loving music, we also met our best friends in the past five years of organizing Shalanaya, and at other psytrance festivals all around world. It is all about you. Experience, connect and create with others who too like to live their lives in special ways.
