WE ARE BACK!
It took us a while and lots of efforts this year, but we are glad to finally announce all the details for the seventh edition of Shalanaya festival!
Welcome new and old friends to our adventure of music, art, outdoor, and good vibes all around.
In the autumn days of November 22nd to 24th, we will gather once more to celebrate life, nature and community
For its seventh edition, Shalanaya has a new home, a beautiful piece of land in Changxing Island (长兴岛). The venue is surrounded by water, grassy fields and trees, is detached and isolated, yet easily accessible from downtown Shanghai. We love it because it is comfortable and very relaxing, and it offers us a beautiful playground for our stages and activities.
What to Expect
Shalanaya brings both local and international artists line-up, performances, and shows on three stages: Main, Chillout, and Fire stage.
The Main Stage will blast your ears with psytrance, techno and alternative electronic music.
This is the dancefloor where your body can liberate, restore, and energize. We took the difficult – but we believe wise – decision to pause the music on the Main stage at night: We are tired of spending our evenings by dealing with noise complaints, and we are sure you are too.
Main stage will run full power from 9am and will be closed at 8pm, and we expect the concentrated enjoyment energy to be stronger than ever.
Chill Out stage will be curated and running 24hours, bringing you ambient, psybient, tribal and world music: expect live shows, relaxing visuals, jam sessions, drum circles. Chill out and Fire Stage will be the playground for workshops, art performances, live shows, fire and flow arts, which will be happening both day and night time.
And whilst you move between the dancefloors, the dome, the creative market, the teahouse, the cinema, and all the greenery of the venue will be there for you too.
Shalanaya is a non-profit event completely run thanks to the generous love and efforts of volunteers.
The experience of a community, a tribe, a family, or whatever you wanna call it, is the most important reason why every year we do all of this.
Thanks to everyone who makes the festival possible.
If you are interested in volunteering or helping out with any tasks (building/deco/media/bar/kitchen is what we need the most), please reach out asap at email@example.com
Shalanaya will open on November 22nd at 4pm until 4pm on November 24th. Gate will be closed from midnight to 8am, so entering the festival is not possible in these hours.
Please plan your arrival accordingly.
The venue includes camping grounds (access is included in ticket price), toilets and one indoor shower.
We will run a bar as usual and serve food. As the income from the bar and restaurant is enabling us to pay the rental fee, the artists, and all other costs, we ask everyone to refrain from bringing drinks and meals, although of course you are very welcome to share your snack with everyone 🙂
Free water refill will be available, bring your own bottle and cups! We really want to step up the collective effort of producing less trash at our festival, please participate!
To book a tent, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tents for rent are limited, first come first served.

Leave No Trace
Shalanaya is a Leave No Trace event in which we expect everyone to take care of their waste footprints and to cherish the environment.
We have been inspired by other festivals in Europe which are completely Zero Waste, and we want to transition into that direction too. For this to become possible as soon as possible we need the collaboration of everyone.
There are trashbins on site but we need each of you committed to reduce the impact.
What to do and how to help:
1) Bring with you cup, bottle, plate and cuttlery to be reused for meals and drinks. We provide water for free. Drink it, don’t waste it. Avoid plastic water bottles please!
2) Avoid buying products in excessive single-use plastic packaging
3) Separate and recycle trash
4) Finish your meals, share with others what you can not eat
We are currently looking for a supplier of re-usable cups for the bar. Please, if you have any connection or link to share we would be grateful of your suggestion. Send us an email at email@example.com or get in touch on wechat.
Shalanaya is a rain or shine event, so better get prepared for any weather. Don’t forget your gear for chilly night and rainy days. Pack warm clothes (layers!) and sleeping bag, raincoat, flashlight, insect repellent, toilet paper, and everything you need to make yourself comfortable whilst dancing and chilling.
– Dont forget your original ID card or passport
– A screenshot/printing of your ticket
– cup, plate and cuttlery to be reused
– The best of your good vibes!
