Shankra Switzerland 2024 Postponed to 2025
Jun 24, 2024 | Shankra Switzerland

Dear Shankra Family,

It's with a heavy heart that we must announce the postponement of our upcoming festival to 2025.

Lostallo and Mesolcina region have been victims of heavy rainfalls on Friday evening that resulted in landslides and floods all around the Region. 

It's an unprecedented crisis for the Region and something that Switzerland rarely witnesses. 

The sense of grief and sadness in Lostallo town is palpable, still, everyone is working relentlessly to stabilize the situation.

We have been on festival grounds for 14 days and while we were not as affected as the other side of the valley, it would be an irresponsible act and logistically impossible to conduct an event in the next 2 weeks, given the actual conditions.

Lostallo, its town council and especially its residents have been one of the most important reasons for our gathering to happen: they welcomed us 10 years ago, nurtured our dream to celebrate life through music in the Valley and have been supportive in every way possible since day one. It's our responsibility to be on their side in this crucial moment. 

Our crew will be helping in the Town once we finish dismantling on the festival grounds; if you are willing to come and give a helping hand in Lostallo town or in the Region, please announce yourself at Cancelleria Comunale di Lostallo.

The exact date for the 2025 edition will be decided with the town council once the situation is resolved. The artistic value will be integrally kept and tickets bought for 2024 will be automatically valid for 2025.

Refunds and name changes are possible; every ticket holder will receive an email with instructions for these applications in the coming weeks.

Children's village

Knowledge is the most precious value we can gain. Through knowledge, we can get in touch with deep meanings and unexpected connections that can change our perception of reality. Enrich your personal culture by following our program of lectures: a broad range of topics will be addressed, covering different areas of interest.

Healing Practices

Reconnecting with your body, touching inner spots and cleaning your spirit is sometimes a much-needed process that we tend to underestimate in our daily routine. At Shankra Festival, discover techniques to consciously work towards a deeper understanding of yourself, your spirit and the planet with the precious help of worldwide healers.

Live Painting

The most powerful way of creating is using our imagination. Sharing our visions with people is like selling plane tickets to our personal world: you will be able to travel through the artistic expressions of painters and creators, presented in a unique environment.


Inspiration is the primary source of action: we find something new that awakes our interest, that becomes enthusiasm and may change our daily routine. Get inspired with our program of workshops and activities: you will have the chance to learn new and exciting skills, training your body and feeding your soul.
