Fast approaching its 19th year in production, Canada’s Shambhala Music Festival (August 5-8) continues onward with its impressive transformation from its once humble beginnings on the Bundschuh family’s farm in Salmo, British Columbia into one of Canada’s largest, most popular and highest revered electronic music gatherings. As eager ticketholders await for the commencement of this year’s festival overflowing with top notch musical acts like Caspa b2b Rusko, Excision, Liquid Stranger, Emancipator, Nightmares On Wax, Opiuo, Questlove, What So Not and Cut Chemist (just to name a few), Shambhala will be taking some of their 2016 artists on the road throughout the summer to places like Canada, California, Washington and Colorado to start warming up the party.
On Saturday July 2nd, Shambhala will be landing in Victoria’s Sugar Nightclub for a party featuring Fractal Forest stage headliner Ghastly, as well as Village Stage act Generic and Dua. Jumping over to Edmonton on Friday July 15th, a massive crew of cohorts, namely UBK, Pas De Nom, All Blown Up and Future Roots, will be coming together to produce a stellar Shambhaffiliate event at the Starlite Room. That same night in Seattle, Washington, the USC Events crew will be bringing an amazing show at Foundation Nightclub. A couple weeks later, Supreme Hustle and The Hifi will link up to collude on an excellent evening of entertainment in Calgary on Saturday July 30 for the YYC SMF Warm-Up at the Hifi Club. Heading down stateside again, Denver’s Sub.mission will be delivering a large scale, triple-headliner event on Tuesday August 4, at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom with Truth, Om Unit & Shades.
