Shambhala Music Festival, which takes place in Salmo, British Columbia, Canada is known for its wide array of artists from a multitude of genres. Whether you’re into Funk, Bass, Dubstep, Trap, Breaks, you name it, you’ll always find something to groove to. Though I dabble in the love of many different genres, my heart belongs to House music.
Shambhala’s 2019 lineup is a FEAST for those who love to devour many flavours of House, whether it is Dark House, G-House, Tech House, Deep House, Progressive House… the list goes on. This years lineup is nothing short of pure amazement. I’ve compiled a list of some of my must see’s for this year which includes a little about the artist, what stage they’re playing and time, but also one of my favourite tracks. Make sure you INDULGE in the tasty House music when you head home to the farm this summer August 9-12th, 2019.
