    Shambhala

    I got to attend a music festival this year that I can truly say is one of the most magical positive experiences of my life. I've been in the "rave/dj" scene for about 7 years now, I work in a nightclub every weekend, I've DJ'd big shows & a few festivals, met tons of people. but NOTHING compares to the weekend I spent out in Nelson BC in August this past year at Shambhala. I think this is something that everyone needs to experience at some point in their life.

    Here is the official after movie that just got released today. and tickets go on sale this week for 2015



    and some other videos:

    Tho it is typically talked about as a "bass" festival, there is such a wide variety of music. From hip-hop, to funk, to reggae, to DnB, to deep house, to dubstep and more. Guys like Bassnectar, Datsik & Excision call it their favorite festival of all time, not just to play, but attend. You can often find artists walking around in the crowds. The sound is earth rattling and crystal clear, PK Sound made their name known thru Shambhala festival and now guys like Skrillex, Feed Me, The Glitch Mob all tour with PK Sound systems to supply the bass and clarity for their shows. The visuals are UNREAL. There's one stage called The Fractal Forest which is 360 of sound around the DJ booth in the middle of a dense tree setting with lasers shooting all around you, trees that have projection mapping on them, and massive "sunflower" screens in the air showcasing some of the trippiest visuals you'll find anywhere. The Village stage is made to look like an Ewok village from star wars, with wooden pathways built all up high in the trees and waterfalls and little pieces of decor everywhere. The Grove had a "living wall" where the stage was covered in real live plants that gave it a nice earthly setting while the music pumped. The Pagoda Stage had a massive laser that shot miles and miles away in the sky, and the stage was surrounded by very tall trees with lights flashing on them to the beat. The Amphitheatre stage is dug out about 10 feet into the ground, so you get a nice sheltered experience. The Living Room is right by the river, where lots of people relax in during the hot daytime. You can find hundreds of gorgeous women topless or fully naked throughout the festival. some of the most ridiculous costumes and camp sites. The food available at the festival was amazing. One of the vendors was home grown beef that was fresh from a week before the festival taken right from the cattle on the farm the festival is held.

    It lasts 3 nights, you camp outside in a tent or trailer, and it's one of the biggest positive experiences you will ever have. definitely go check it out if you can

    Looks like a blast.

    10 years ago, I would have been all about this. Now, I'd just be the creepy old guy enjoying the hell out of it, but being shunned by all the pretty kids.

    not really man. i mean yea the majority are "young" but shambhala is one of the most accepting communities of people next to Burning Man i'd say. I've seen grandparents there & middle aged people too. You'd only be creepy if you were deliberately doing something creepy

    Well, that's definitely promising.

    For those that enjoy Drum & Bass, for the first time ever, Shambhala has shared a video of the entire set of an artist.
    Here is Sub Focus, live from The Village Stage @ Shambhala. This stage was designed and built by PK Sound, who make some of the best & loudest concert grade speakers in the world.
