Pioneering, intimate and truly innovative, Shambala Festival has blended creativity and participation perfectly for well over a decade. Shambala is a truly special place where you play, revitalise, and return to the world full of joy. 


Shambala takes place across the August Bank Holiday weekend (23rd - 26th) at a stunning secret location in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside.

Make you're camping experience stress-free by renting a bell tent from Firefly Camping. Our beautiful bell tents are cosy for two, big enough for the family, or fun for a group of friends, and having us put it up for you means you can relax and enjoy the fun from the moment you arrive. A hop skip and a jump away from the main arenas, you won’t have to walk far to get home, and with hot showers, compost toilets and a coffee cart on your doorstep you’ll find waking up under canvas a pleasurable experience too! 

Firefly Camping are bringing 4 metre and 5 metre bell tents to this year's festival.  

Choose from either 'Just the Tent' or our 'Firefly Fancy' package which includes:

  • Comfy air beds
  • A wooden mirror and side tables
  • A welly deck for your wellies
  • Firefly lanterns and shepherds crooks 
  • Bunting, fairy lights, and a colourful rug.

Our packages do not include bedding so please make sure you also book your required bedding when booking your bell tent.


How many beds does a 4m tent sleep?

4m tents sleep up to 4 people on either:
– 2 double beds
– 1 double bed + 2 single beds

(NB: you cannot fit 4 single beds in a 4m tent)


How many beds does a 5m tent sleep?

5m tents sleep up to 6 people on either:
– 3 double beds
– 2 double beds + 2 single beds
– 1 double bed + 4 single beds
– 6 single beds

(Please note, the more beds, the less floor space for belongings, so we advise using double beds rather than single beds as much as possible.)


Damage Waiver Fee:

We require a separate £100 damage waiver deposit to be made on top of your total price. This is refundable and returned once we get everything back in a satisfactory condition.
