Shangri-La’s mighty Truth Stage shouts loud and demands your attention! It’s right here that the sounds of the revolution resonate well beyond sunrise with an eclectic musical programme featuring acts from around the world, uniting the tribes. The truth is out there… the truth is yours!

This year the Truth Stage will be hosted each day by a line-up of some of Shangri-La’s best mates; taking care of business on Thursday will be Angel Mel, taking over the stage on Friday afternoon will be Craig Charles, while Friday evening’s festivities will be brought to you by Clare Ferguson and John Swale. On Saturday Angel Mel will be back on duty but this time she will be bringing some friends, and on Sunday Drag Syndrome, Clare Ferguson and John Swale will be guiding proceedings like only they can.
