With all eyes on Shambhala Music Festival, now entering its 18th consecutive year, the boutique EDM event in the wilds of British Columbia in western Canada had to deliver a lineup of epic proportions.
Yeah. They killed it.
Utter eye candy for electronic music nerds, the lineup boasts jaw-dropping headliners like Pretty Lights, Skrillex, Kygo, Zomboy, and GRiZ. As always, the hometown heroes Excision and Datsik will make their way to Salmo River Ranch in beautiful Salmo, BC from August 7-10. Some throwback flavor is in there, for sure, with the appearances of DJ Jazzy Jeff and Beastie Boys' DJ and turntable genius Mix Master Mike. No word yet as to whether or not the Fresh Prince will make a cameo.
Untz faves making the lineup include Liquid Stranger, KOAN Sound, Bird of Prey, Birds of Paradise, Space Jesus, G Jones, Dimond Saints, Haywyre, and Herobust. Bonobo will be performing a DJ set, and fans will be getting two sets from Mr. Dave Tipper. Canada is well-repped by Adham Shaikh, Stickybuds, Stylust Beats, and The Funk Hunters. Australia, New Zealand, and Europe make a strong standing, as well.
The full lineup by stage will begin to roll out March 30th with each stage going live with its roster one day at a time. Fans drooling over this main lineup can head over to www.shambhalamusicfestival.com and start snatching up their $365 CDN festival passes.
