The world’s first digital currency is making headway in the UK circuit.
In an attempt to make festival transactions much more fluid, UK’s Shambala festival has now decided to make their tickets available for purchase via Bitcoin – the world renowned digital payment system. Going cashless is not new to the music festival circuit, but Shambala is taking it a step further by tying up with the open source software.
The festival takes place across four days on the August Bank Holiday Weekend (August 27 – 30) at a stunning secret location in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside. The variety and quality of entertainment on offer is staggering for a festival of its size. With over 200 diverse musical acts across 12 live stages, world-class cabaret, an amazing array of workshops, stand-up comedy, inspirational talks and debates, jaw dropping circus and acrobatics, interactive theatre and nationally acclaimed poetry all housed in beautifully decorated venues.
Pioneering, intimate and truly innovative, the festival has perfectly blended creativity and participation for well over a decade. Shambala is a special place where you play, revitalise, make lots of new friends and return to the world fuelled-up on the beauty of being alive. As well as being known as a “legendary party”, it is also a haven for cutting edge theatrics and performance, a think-tank of ideas and an award winning green event.
