BREAKING: Shambhala Music Festival 2020 officially canceled

Shambhala Music Festival has been postponed until July 2021, the festival announced Tuesday.

In a heartfelt public post addressed to the Shambhala Family, the organizers apologized for the cancellation of the 2020 iteration of the festival, and promised a triumphant return next year. Acknowledging the community spirit of the festival as well as concerns for the safety of the attendees and the surrounding communities, and Dr. Bonnie Henry’s advisory on public events in British Columbia, there is no doubt it was a difficult decision.

The festival will still be held in 2021 at the Salmo River Ranch, its home since the festival first started in 1998.

As for ticket holders, the release states that “All 2020 tickets and lodging packages will be valid for a future date across the following three years (2021, 2022 or 2023).”

“It has always been about the people on the dancefloor, and we know once we are all reunited again, it will be a Shambhala to remember,” the release continues.

This comes hot on the heels of the announcement of the cancellation of Electric Forest, and many smaller events and festivals throughout the province and overseas. Although we are doubtless saddened by this news, it is better to be safe than sorry and to have the guests who want to be come, to be able to do so.
