After celebrating the historic two decade mark last year, Shambhala Music Festival is excited to return to the immaculate Salmo River Ranch in British Columbia, Canada on August 10-13, 2018 for the 21st annual edition. Taking place on a breathtaking family-run farm , festivalgoers will have the chance to experience the best of what nature has to offer throughout four blissful days while witnessing hundreds of artists across six unique stages that are individually curated and run by their own stage directors.
To kick things off on the music front, the Shambhala family is pleased to announce their first confirmed headliners for the 2018 edition: Canadian DJ and record producer REZZ and pioneering bass music trio The Glitch Mob . This is just a small taste of whats to come with the full lineup to be announced soon, which will bring performers from around the world in genres like dubstep, drum and bass, glitch-hop, house, hip-hop, trap, future bass and much more to Salmo River Ranch.
REZZ , affectionately known by her fans as Space Mom, started DJing at 16 and soon after developed the confidence to begin producing her own originals. It wasnt long until she caught the attention of Skrillex and soon after released a project on his OWSLA imprint . From there, her rise in the EDM industry was meteoric as she released several projects on deadmau5s label mau5trap , including her debut album. The Shambhala veteran recently announced that her second album is also in the works.
The Glitch Mob comprised of ediT, Ooah, and Boretahave been pushing the limits of electronic music since their inception in 2006. Meeting at an underground Burning Man party in Los Angeles, the three instantly kindled a creative chemistry that has led to an illustrious career with multiple albums and one of the most beloved live shows in dance music. The trio has announced their third album will be dropping on May 4th, and also recently released thefirst singleentitled How Could This Be Wrong.
Shambhala began in 1998 as a grassroots gathering of 500 people on founder Jimmy Bundschuhs family farm in an evergreen forest beneath breathtaking mountains, and has since grown overtime primarily by word-of-mouth thanks to past patrons and artists. Shambhalas home has continued to evolve over the past two decades with a focus on infrastructure that ensures a healthy and sustainable environment .
