Shambhala is one long-running festival that has dugs its roots deep into the pristine grounds of Salmo River Ranch. After 22 years, and despite multiple buy-out offers by big box live event companies, the British Columbia-based festival has managed to stay fully independent and keeping its transcendent ethos. Now the event proudly announced another stunning line-up for the weekend of August 9-12.
Among the top talent on the 2019 line-up is Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo’s Anti Up project, Bonobo, Excision, FKJ, Ganja White Night, GRiZ, Liquid Stranger, NERO, Diplo and Mark Ronson’s Grammy-winning Silk City duo, and more. The undercard is just as impressive, with house fans getting their dose in Anna Lunoe, AC Slater, Dr. Fresch, Justin Martin and more. Trance fans have Billy Kenny and Paul Oakenfold to ascend with, while bass fans can get down with the lower frequencies of Alix Perez, Charlesthefirst, Boogie T, Minnesota, Downlink, Tynan, and many more.
While music remains a cornerstone of Shambhala, the event is so much more than that. This is a festival that is deeply seeded in communal gathering, consciousness raising, and karmic connection through a range of transcendental activities that have strengthened the other ethos over decades. This is one festival you won’t want to miss, if not for the life-changing experiences alone.
A full lineup release, with over 200 more artists, is still to come. Tickets and travel packages are almost sold out, grab yours here.
