ConcertSocks-Shambhala

After celebrating a historic two decades last year, Shambhala Music Festival returns to the pristine Salmo River Ranch in British Columbia, Canada, on August 10–13, 2018. Organizers of the transformational event have already dangled some tantalizing teasers in REZZThe Glitch Mob, Kyle Watson, and DJ QBert. Today, the festival announces the first phase for its 21st annual edition. 

This year’s roster will boast the first-ever Canadian debut of UK hip-hop legend Dizzee Rascal!, Dirtybird founder Claude VonStroke and his hip-hop leaning project Barclay Crenshaw, legendary UK dubstep aficionado Feed Me, renowned bass renegade DESTRUCTO, crossover hip-hop/electronic producer Mr. Carmack, mysteriously masked Malaa, world-class producer Gramatik, British creator of the “purple sound” sub-genre Joker, French world-music producer Fakear, UK drum & bass duo Camo & Krooked, melodic dubstep duo Adventure Club, the electrifying 2¢ project from DJ CRAZE and Four Color Zack, Mad Decent’s Boombox Cartel, electro house trio Black Tiger Sex Machine, Montreal bass music phenomenon Snails, Grammy winning live duo Brasstracks, and the glitched out Australian act OPIUO, plus many more.

Arriving as the most intriguing act of the weekend, arguably so, is 29 Palms, a collaborative side-project between Ooah and Boreta of The Glitch Mob.
