Us here at Fresh Music Freaks are so excited for British Columbia’s Shambhala Music Festival announcement of Jungle & DnB legends Chase & Status (DJ Set), the third announced headliner of their 2019 lineup, along with GRiZ and ZHU. As one of the most successful electronic acts of the past decade, Chase & Status are no stranger to the music festival circuit, however, this will be their first time playing at Shambhala Music Festival.
Attendees can expect all new music from the DnB heavyweights off their forthcoming album RTRN II JUNGLE, incorporating the golden years of Jungle music from the mid-late ’90s.
“We are transporting jungle into the future – this is a cultural movement” – Chase & Status
Chase & Status have already dropped three singles from the unreleased album, including tracks Retreat, Heated and Big Man Skank VIP ft. Mr Vegas. Heated is my personal favourite, with the smooth sounds of the lyricist and that classic Jungle feel. The album marks 15 years since they first started releasing music and touring. With this momentous moment in mind, Chase & Status’s new music shows a return to their roots with Jungle music. Chase & Status will be bringing their new music to The Village Stage stage at the Salmo River Ranch for the 22nd Annual Shambhala Music Festival, running from August 9-12, 2019.
Shambhala Music Festival began in 1998 as a grassroots gathering of 500 people on founder Jimmy Bundschuh’s family farm in an evergreen forest, nestled deep in the breathtaking mountains of interior British Columbia. The festival is a family-run event that operates completely free of corporate sponsorship and offers six unique stage environments. We here at Fresh Music Freaks are ecstatic to return to the farm and get vibey with you, check out our other headliner announcements and more info here. General Admission Tickets for 2019 are on sale now here. Payment plans are also available for 2019 here. Full 2019 lineup TBA early spring.
