Excitement stirred as dusk blanketed Salmo River Ranch in hues of pink and purple that Sunday night at Shambhala Music Festival. It was the last night of what had been a phenomenal week in Canada, and hands down one of the most creatively produced festivals we’ve ever covered. It’s easy to see why so many artists return to Shambhala year after year. I mean, that PK Sound is as crisp as a pepperoni hot from a wood fire oven. The sound was explosive no matter where you stood, never sacrificing the music’s integrity.
But beyond the dancefloor, the festival is embodies the idea of a free-spirited community. So we immersed ourselves as much as we could, smoked shisha in lavish Moroccan tents, and danced on towering structures that looked like they torn straight from the Lost Boys camp in Hook. It was an interactive experience and ridiculously fun (see it for yourself in our retrospective after-movie). Among the excitement, I along with my trusty Senior Editor got the chance to sit down with local super-duo ODESZA, right before they took the stage at Shambhala for the very first time.
