Shambhala Music Festival
(Calgary, AB Canada)
Shambhala Music Festival Salmon River Ranch
Shambhala Music Festival - Salmon River Ranch, BC Canada
House, funk, hip hop, psy trance, dub step, breaks, anything goes!!
It might be small on a world scale, but it's one of the largest in Canada. Shambhala is one of the last real "raves", there is nothing like partying with the hippies deep in the BC interior.
Here is where fairies, hula hoopers, poi and liquid dancers come to play! Tickets are restricted to 10,000, there is an intimate feeling that cannot be duplicated in a huge music festival. I have been to festivals around the world, but there is something special about this particular festival.
You won't see the usual big name headliners, this festival focuses on promoting local talent and the underground music scene. The biggest headliner to day was Q-Bert last year, and this year DJ Nu-mark from Jurassic 5. The organizers of this festival take the greatest care in keeping it fresh and unique.
Must be seen and experienced to truly appreciate. There are 5 stages (Fractal Forest, the Pagoda, the Lambrynth, the Living Room the Village and the Rock Pit). there is also a beach for relaxing and playing during the day, and at night, the forest comes alive with glowsticks and beats.
Not only is the music and the people amazing, the organizers use local vendors for food and local craftsmen for merchandise, many of whom you won't find anywhere else. all healthy homemade food all reasonably priced. you won't find a corporate logo or major record label sponsor anywhere!!
the last rave....i dare anyone to find a party like this!!
