Embrace the Unexpected - Poetry
14 gen 2021 | Shankra Switzerland

Embrace the unexpected...our magical Lostallo Valley in Switzerland is covered in snow these first days of 2021 ❄️

From the boundaries of the sky rolling to the perpetual stream of life,

lofty mountains made of ice and rock, 

bursting splendour and ethereal clouds, 

sounds of steps resonating through the vales, 

together we are in a ceaseless motion, 

an harmony of a kind,

blooming under the soil, 

snowy, restless, silent, 

feeling deeply universal minds, 

beaming growth getting louder and louder, 

and sighs as 

music begins. 


when feeling understood

Overthrowing the limits of feeble dreams, 

flowers, fields and trees standing tall, 

relentless beats of presence, 

birds from far coming back,

coming anew, 

flying over mighty hollows,

secret lands of abundance, 

where stillness and motion

Embrace the unexpected. 

Through winter, Nature enhances introspection and suggests us to preserve our energy. 

With the beginning of a new year, we are faced with a chance for renovation, to prepare ourselves to bloom again and again ✨

Shankra Switzerland 2020 postponed to 2021
4 dic 2020 | Shankra Switzerland

Dear Shankra Family,

We started this festival five years ago with a simple dream: to fill our valley with kindness that psychedelic music generates in people. From the very beginning, and during all these years, we have received an immeasurable amount of trust in response to our work. This has always been our main drive to do what we love to do.

Today, in this critical situation, we are asking you to take, once again, a big leap of faith in us.

Hope can be the source of both our biggest strengths and weaknesses. We had an unshakeable faith that our Festival could happen this year. Unfortunately, our assumptions and hope were misplaced: sooner or later we will be back to our daily life, enjoying and appreciating all the small gestures that the world has to offer, but it will take time and patience and, most of all, our individual and collective responsibility.

Your health is imperative to us and we will not compromise on it. Gathering up thousands of people from all over the world may jeopardize all the efforts and sacrifices that we are being through in this moment.

After briefing with every group of interest, with local and national authorities and with all the other festivals in the psychedelic scene, we have decided that the most responsible act is to postpone our event to 7 – 11 JULY 2021.

All the ticket holders will be granted access to Shankra 2021, which will host the exact same artistic value as we were planning to offer this year.

Shankra is entirely financed by ticket revenues, we always have been sponsor-free for a greater cause.

Ticket sales have been funding everything that goes into the production of our 2020 edition.

We will be working constantly to create, with our 6th Edition, the opportunity be together once again and to share the values for which stand for.

Your understanding and support in this unexpected situation will be much appreciated and vital.

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