What is the meaning of the festival name?
Shayana is Hindu female name that means "Gift of the gods". We think that the festival is our gift to ourselves. Making the party for everyone, we grow as people and bring a little bit of kindness to this planet. That's why your support and participation is so important.
What is Shayana and when it came to being?
Shayana existed since the dawn of times. It never started and it will never end, we just haven't heard about it before. Now you know the truth!
What about the booze?
We do not advice bringing alcohol to the festival, because its delicate and friendly atmosphere can suffer from this. If you still insist, please do not use glass bottles. Also, please don't start campfires by yourselves, we got this for you. Please, clean up after yourself.
Festival got magical guards. They are kind, but strict, and will ensure safety and comfort for everybody. Don't be afraid of them, they are here for your own security. Remember, we are all guests of Shayana and as guests should be respectful of local rules.
Festival takes place in a beautiful landscape of Daugavas Loki nature park. There is Daugava River nearby (15 minutes walk). Magnificient hills, lively swamp, birch grove, ancient stone buildings covered with ivy await you, fellow Shayaner. There are no shops close by, so make sure you are stocked with food and supplies, including water! We will provide water on-site, but our supply is limited.

Also, it is very easy to get there even without GPS, just few turns:
Drive away from Daugavpils, heading to Belarusian border, using road P68. Drive thru Griva district.
On first crossing after “End of Daugavpils city” road sign - turn left
Drive this way for some time, pass big crossing with church straight. Soon the road will change from asphalted to country road, keep driving ahead
Drive straight on big crossing of country roads
Soon you see the electricity line and pillar - this is a landmark of Shayanaland
You are welcome!
The road is 28 kilometers long, counting from Daugavpils center; approximate driving time - about half an hour. Please, place your cars accurately on field, do not block traffic of cars and agricultural transport. our.
Where we can sleep?
Shayana is open air festival, and in May it can be quite breezy at night in Latgale! You can sleep and replenish your forces in the tent that you should bring by yourself. Please take everything necessary for comfortable sleepover in nature, most important being the sleeping bag. If you are not used to spending the night in forest, you can rent good tourist equipment at our friends in tourist club "Snowdrop" (Daugavpils)
Isn't it too cold in May at night?
Statistics tell us that temperature rarely drops below +6 degrees Celsius. Make sure you have appropriate clothes. We will keep you warm using positive energy and kindness, but this is not always enough. There will be big campfires on the territory, where you can warm up and drink some hot aromatic tea or herbal infusions.
But even better is to use true Shayanic way to get warm - go the Energy Field stage and rock the dancefloor!
