Shambhala unveils REZZ as first of 2018 headliners

This post was originally published on this site

When REZZ made her extraordinary debut appearance at Shambhala Music Festival in 2016, her beloved performance was widely regarded as one of many breakout moments in her, at the time, short career. The mau5trap signee was also among Shambhala’s most anticipated returning artists among organizers and attendees in 2017.

Sadly, REZZ was instructed not to travel to last year’s event when the festival faced imminent cancellation due to raging wildfires in the area.

Now, less than 200 days out from Shambhala’s return, organizers have made a special, unexpected announcement that REZZ was the first of the 2018 headliners to be announced.

Affectionately known as “Space Mom” by fans, the Canadian-bred female powerhouse talent tweeted to her cult following over her shock and gratitude at the sudden festival announcement.

Shambhala will return to Salmo River Ranch near Nelson, British Columbia this August 10th–13th, 2018. Tickets and ShambhaLodging camping packages are available online.

BREAKING: Shambhala issues “pre-evacuation alert” as nearby wildfire continues to grow

This post was originally published on this site

An evacuation alert has been issued at Shambhala Music Festival, today August 12, due to rising concern of the McCormick Creek wildfire and its jumping of the Salmo River.

While this evacuation order area does NOT yet currently include Shambhala Music Festival and mandate for its attendees to leave the premises, the McCormick Creek Fire Evacuation Alert area has been expanded to include the Salmo River Ranch as advised by BC Wildfire.

At this time the evacuation alert is merely a notification of risk in the area and not yet an order. Attendees should be aware of the rising concern, remain in communication, and stay informed as an evacuation order from the area may follow an alert, although often times an area may remain on alert for an extended period of time.

Updates are set to follow on Shambhala’s blog here, but until then the festival wishes for its attendees to “be safe, stay positive and dance to bring the rain!”
