Get wild in the interior of British Columbia!

One of the most immersive music festivals in Canada, Shambhala returns to the Salmo River Ranch for the 21st annual edition. What started out as a grassroots gathering of 500 people, the festival has evolved to become an incredible showcase of bass and house music, with over 20,000 people in attendance in 2017!

Blurring the lines between reality and fantasy for an experience like no other, here are five reasons why you should add Shambhala to your festival roster this year:

5 It’s on a Farm

Not your typical barn party, Shambhala is set on a lush, 500-acre working farm known as the Salmo River Ranch and is nothing short of breathtaking – with a focus  on cultivating a healthy and sustainable environment.

Literally farm-to-table, festival-goers can fuel up on organic, locally-sourced food supplied through venue itself! During the four-day festival, the farm takes on a life of its own.

  • A Wiccan Celebration of the New Moon

More workshops TBA!
