The line-up announcement stated: "Shangri-La strives to illuminate progressive culture with great urgency - in the field and beyond.

"By holding a mirror up to the masses, creating conversations, encouraging activism and stimulating all of the senses at the same time, we aim to expand minds and open hearts, motivating people in politics and play."

It went on to hail the "radical area" as "an incredible creative playground where this anarchic spirit continues to manifest in original and new ways."
