It’s Time To Start Your Shambhala Journey Home With These First Headliners

Shambhala Music Festival is excited to return to the immaculate Salmo River Ranch in British Columbia, Canada after celebrating the historic two decade mark last year. This year will be the festival’s 21st annual edition and will be held on August 10-13, 2018.

The Salmo River Ranch is a family-run farm where festival-goers have the chance to experience the best nature has to offer. Through four blissful days, fans will witness hundreds of artists across six unique stages. Each stage is individually curated and run by their own stage directors.

Shambhala Music Festival

Shambhala began in 1998 as a grassroots gathering of 500 people. Founder Jimmy Bundschuh held the festival on his family farm in an evergreen forest beneath breathtaking mountains. It has since grown overtime primarily by word-of-mouth thanks to past patrons and artists. The home of Shambhala continues to evolve over time. With this in mind, the Shambhala family puts a focus on infrastructure that ensures a healthy and sustainable environment. Today it attracts world renowned DJs and artists and some of the most eclectic, energetic fans in the universe. Furthermore, the festival is built on Shambhalove and strives on making the Salmo River Ranch your HOME.

While the Shambhala team is working hard to prepare for the upcoming festival, they are also launching The Ultimate Shambhala Music Festival Experience Contest. The contest includes flights, accommodations, tickets, merch, food vouchers, a stay at the Savoy Hotel in Nelson and much more! Two lucky winners will be chosen to win this exciting contest.

General admission tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased here. High-end camping packages are offered in addition to some other accommodation packages for those traveling from afar.

It’s officially springtime. Therefore, its time to start your plans for your journey HOME!
