On the 5th of August, Canada’s bass heavy fest Shambhala will descend for the 19th time on the Salmo River Ranch. The beauty of British Columbia’s lush forests and flowing rivers will be on full display from sunrise to sunset, coupled with a highly anticipated lineup, as the 500-acre working cattle ranch transforms into the biggest city in the West Kootenays.
Shambhala is known for cutting edge production, and bringing the festival to another level in terms of the electronic dance music culture, holding on to their grassroots origins by refraining from accepting corporate sponsorships. Canadian DJ/producer Excision has called his experiences at the festival one of his favorite of the year, and has made a tradition of posting his sets from Shambhala since 2008.
