Shambhala Music Festival, one of DMNW’s favorite dance music festivals, heads to its home this summer in Salmo, British Columbia. Sliding into its 23rd edition, the festival is Canada’s most established electronic music festival, and looks to dazzle attendees with not only fest experiences that spark joy amongst the sunflowers, but a lineup that looks to hold up with comparisons to the very best of them on the festival circuit.
Typically curating a lineup anchored in bass, funk, and vibey house, Shambhala plans to showcase the sounds that you can groove to from artists hailing not only from North America, but beyond.
One unique aspect about this festival is that it remains fiercely independent, unwilling to give into corporate money-making trends. This clearly is evidently working as DJ Mag’s readers voted it North America’s best festival in 2019.
Tuesday, Shambhala released another huge artist that will be headlining the newly reimagined Village stage in Slander. Whether it be their electric performances, heartfelt production, or amazing bond of friendship, it’s clear that this duo always brings the heat for their sets, as evident at the Alchemy Tour this last summer at Gorge. Through their meticulous blend of emotional lyricism and bone shaking drops, Derek Andersen and Scott Land have built a passionate following and will elevate the event as a whole with their always on point melodies.

We wait with bated breath to see who else we might be dancing to on Salmo River Ranch in July! Previous lineups have included an abundance of amazingly gifted artists, including the likes of Bassnectar, Crizzly, Claude Vonstroke, Liquid Stranger, Fisher, Justin Martin, Adventure Club, Claptone, Opiuo, and so many more.
Not to mention REZZ will be making her triumphant return to the Pagoda stage with her trippy beats this year too!
