‘Our biggest yet’: Shambhala unleashes star-studded lineup for 2023

The team over at Shambhala Music Festival have dropped their lineup for the 24th annual event and it is epic! Of course, following the headliner announcements of GRiZ, RL Grime, Zeds Dead, John Summit  and Gigantic NGHTMRE – we knew that this year’s lineup wouldn’t be anything short of amazing. There are still 100 artists that will be revealed when the stage-by-stage announcements kick off.

Some of the PNW-based Shambhala veteran artists set to return include: Living Room stage director Lion-S, Vancouver’s Longwalkshortdock, funky breaks and bass master Stickybuds, Vancouver Island’s Whipped Cream, Washington’s Fort Knox Five & Qdup and “Really Good” Mat the Alien.

From elsewhere in North America and around the globe, Shambhala 2023 has stacked talent. Kicking off this list are Montreal’s Black Tiger Sex Machine – swifly followed by Excision, French DJ Shiba San and UK legends Goldie and Rusko.

“As far as lineups go, this is our biggest yet. Our Stage Directors really pushed the envelope this year in order to bring some of the biggest names in electronic dance music, as well as a stack of talented up-and-comers that Shambhala has become known for amplifying,” Shambhala CEO Neil MacLeod said in a news release announcing the lineup. 

The 24th annual Shambhala Music Festival takes place from July 21st to July 24th, 2023. Tickets for the festival are now 90% sold out. If you miss your chance at getting tickets not all hope is lost, as Shambhala crew applications went live February 24th. To kick off the application season Shambhala is holding a Facebook contest for a prize pack valued at $500 CAD. All you have to do is like this post and tag a friend. For a bonus entry share the post to your page and tag the Shambhala facebook page.

As I've always lived in the Pacific Northwest, I've been fortunate enough to explore the beautiful province of British Columbia and its vibrant culture. When I'm not writing about music, I enjoy hiking in the mountains, trying out new recipes with ingredients from local farmers' markets, and spending time with my family and friends. I also have a passion for sustainability, harm reduction and environmental conservation, and try to incorporate these values into my everyday life. Thanks for taking the time to learn a little bit about me!
