Shankra Switzerland 2021 will return again in the magical valley in 2022!
May 18, 2021 | Shankra Switzerland

Dear Shankra Family,

Throughout the years, our collective dream has been manifested faithfully with many: the welcoming region of Lostallo and its locals, artisans, associations, countless local suppliers, families, friends and most importantly by you, people gathering from all over the world to share a unique message.

After carefully evaluating the current situation worldwide and the regulations still present due to the pandemic, we recognize the incompatibility between the usual festival experience and such regulations: Shankra Festival is about free expression and we do not wish to transform its core identity into restrictions and doubts.

Our very individual and collective responsibility is vital in this situation to shape a brighter future without compromises. Briefing with every group of interest, local and national authorities, we have decided, with great regret, that the most reasonable act is to postpone our Swiss event to 13 – 17 JULY 2022.

We will be working constantly to create our 6th Swiss edition, an opportunity to be together once again and to share the values for which we stand for. Our Festivals are entirely financed by ticket sales, without sponsors or third party investments. Your understanding and support in this situation is vital and much appreciated.

All ticket holders of Shankra Switzerland 2020 & 2021 will be granted access to Shankra Switzerland 2022, which will take place from the 13th to the 17th of July 2022.

If you have any inquiry or reclaim, we kindly ask you to write to support@shankrafestival.org

Jam Sessions at Shankra - Get in the Groove
Feb 23, 2021 | Shankra Switzerland

Music unites everyone.

At Shankra Festival, we have a broad spectrum of music that goes beyond electronic sounds, psytrance rhythms and loopy psychedelic grooves. At our venue, everyone is welcome to bring out their inner talents and emotions, expressing themselves through body, voice and movement, resonating with the rhythm of the festival.

We believe that music is universal and non-hierarchical. The idea of gathering for daily jam sessions allows not only musicians but also our Shankra guests, including kids, avid listeners and unrestrained dancers to mingle with each other, and move to the sounds of improvised music with trumpets, bongos, percussions, guitars, spin drums, tambourines, expressive voices and much more!

Musical improvisations happen when creative sounds are combined with instrumental techniques, and a one-of-a-kind connection happens between musician and listener or between other musicians, producing magical and unexpected interactions. A shift from harmony to many other dimensions of music, including timbre, melodic intervals, rhythm and spontaneous sharing between players, creates new and unique performances, rendering the perfect atmosphere to enjoy music and manifest love towards one another.

Sustainability in Switzerland
Jan 27, 2021 | Shankra Switzerland

Switzerland is not only the land of immense mountains landscapes, clean lakes, crystal-clear rivers and unspoiled nature but also belongs to the world-best categories when it comes to sustainability, an integral part of the country’s identity.  

Gentle tourism, meanings conscious travelling that carefully minimizes climate impact, keeping in mind environmental protection through little changes and support of the local economy has been on demand for many years. Switzerland’s guests and inhabitants pay attention to their behaviour concerning ecology and mindful travel. 

Pure Drinkable Water

Drinking water can be found anywhere around Switzerland and is the product of natural resources: 80% of it originates from natural springs, glaciers and groundwaters, while the rest comes from lakes. Strict regulations result in the highest standard of hygiene and safety when it comes to the quality of water, demonstrating a balanced ecology for Swiss tap water. With an average rainfall per year of 60.5 inches, the country has superior natural reserves compared to other European countries. The majority of water is accumulated in the artificial lakes and dams, where electricity is also generated. This means that these fascinating hydroelectric dams produce more than half of Switzerland’s electricity, creating both renewable energy and CO2-free resources!

On-Time with Sustainable Mobility

Swiss transports are known for their punctuality, just as their population: the railway network, one of the most environmental-friendly transportation, offers a train every 12 minutes, with a total of 9’000 trains underway each day. If you want to explore one of the highest-altitude rail routes in Europe, hop on to the Bernina Express, offered by the Rhaetian Railway. Using 100% of hydropower for their properties, they work on an ongoing basis to improve the energy requirements on trains and railway stations: be it to minimize CO2, adopt renewable energy for heating or innovative recycling approaches!

Waste Management

Switzerland could be seen as one of the world leaders when it comes to waste management: Swiss citizens like to separate and recycle both organic and reusable waste: international studies such as the Environmental Performance Index (EPI) are a confirmation of a country that ranks amongst the first places in waste recycling.

Be it aluminium, old paper, glass, batteries or plastic, every Swiss citizen collects around 300 kilograms of recyclable material each year. At the same time, more than 300’000 tonnes of organic waste is turned into compost!

Preserving Biodiversity & Forest Legislation

Thanks to the varied habitats and mountains range, different weather conditions and soil types, Switzerland benefits from exceptional abundant biodiversity, protecting more than 45’000 surveyed species. Swiss legislation ensures that one-third of the country comprises woodlands and forests that remain unchanged from unnecessary clearances or wood-cutting. Woods provide a green and healthy environment, collecting CO2 greenhouse gas in biomass, thus diminishing harmful greenhouse gas in the atmosphere!
