We are getting closer and closer to the return of the epic Shambhala Music Festival. Tucked into the gorgeous forests of British Columbia, this festival has captured the hearts of attendees all over the world. Over the course of the weekend, Shambhala slowly revealed the lineups for each of the six stages at the festival.
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 REZZ, The 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.

This decision after the festival was forced to cancel the final day and have the attendees of the event evacuate earlier this morning. The festival has said

The sun might not set on Shambhala just yet.
Located on the Salmo River Ranch, the festival closed early yesterday afternoon amid reports of a nearby spreading wildfire. Although Shambhala was clear in its statement that the fire posed no immediate threat to ticket holders, festival organizers recognized that the festival’s cancellation would be in everyone’s best interest from a health and safety standpoint. Much like Saturday, the third day of the festival has been cancelled, shutting down more than eighty scheduled performances.
While prospects remain bleak for a Shambhala restart, on social media, festival organizers are hopeful that some of the weekend’s programming could resume due to a predicted rainy forecast for the day. The festival, however, is officially over unless further notice is given by festival organizers. The chance that the festival will reopen is slight, but nonetheless, possible.

So far August has been a rough month for music festivals. We have seen many go the way of the Dodo this year, from Mysteryland USA to Karoondinha to most recently, UpNorth which was canceled just a week away from it’s starting point. Many other festivals including Lollapalooza and Moonrise have been forced to have

Earlier today, August 12, Shambhala organizers issued a pre-evacuation alert for the festival. The surrounding McCormick Creek wildfire has been spreading rapidly, jumping the Salmo river to inch close to festival grounds while adding toxicity to the air.
Risk of endangerment has ultimately led the iconic festival to proceed with an “early closure,” per a PSA on its social media pages and websites that was erected initially at 3pm PST. According to Shambhala’s statement, Saturday evening will continue as planned, but the closure will begin afterward. They also requested guests to begin packing up their campsites accordingly to prepare for a smooth exit.
Sunday’s programming is completely cancelled, though guests don’t necessarily have to be out that morning — they simply have to be prepared to leave in the worst case scenario. Shambhala clarified later on in the comments of their Facebook announcement that “This is not an evacuation, it’s an early closure. We begin egress as we normally would Monday tomorrow morning.”
