The 17th annual Shambhala Music Festival 2014 features its most powerful lineup to date including Bassnectar, Griz, Moby DJ, Skream, Beats Antique, Paper Diamond, Justin Martin, Phaeleh, Gorgon City and more—over 300 acts in all.
As one of the longest running electronic music festivals in North America, this internationally famed gathering has become an institution in both the festival world and that of electronic music. This year’s lineup also includes the sultry sounds of J. Phlip, Odesza, Christian Martin, EOTO, Lucent Dossier Experience, Opiuo, Hannah Wants, plus a slew of other industry leading, genre-defying producers.
Shambhala Music Festival returns to the wooded mountainous awe of the 500-acre Salmo River Ranch near Nelson, BC from August 6th-11th on their privately owned, immaculately artistic landscape (Google Maps). What has become one of the most beloved venues in the world, natural and man-made features collide to create a unique environment for infinite exploration including six individually curated stages with their own aural and visual schemas, swimming in the river, yoga sessions, and several surprise speakers.
The permanent and serene nature of the venue allows for its year-long development and perpetual growth instead of the typical build up, tear down festival model. This finely sculpted environment is set within the overarching perpetuation of community, connection and sustainability.
As an event which has had an invaluable impact on the progression of electronic music and festivals alike, the Shambhala Music Festival represents a point of departure from the typical understanding of creative communities. By upholding its intimate form, the gathering is able to deliver a uniquely curated window into the most transformative sounds and sights on the planet. Through a synthesis of expertly crafted sensory experience, the festival stands apart as veterans in what is now an internationally explosive scene.
