Shambhala Music Festival just dropped its full headliner lineup via Instagram. The lineup will include performances from Ephwurd, Boyz Noise, Caspa, Excision, Ghastly, What So Not, Kennedy Jones, Autograf, Bleep Bloop, Getter, Andy C And many, many more.
Shambhala is back for its 19th year and is proud to present 2016's headliners! While many have speculated in recent months about how a low Canadian dollar would impact Canadian festivals, a glance at the 2016 Shambhala lineup shows its resilience and diversity, reminding us all of why Canada’s premiere electronic music festival sold out in record time this year, well ahead of announcing a single headliner, for the first time in its history. ••• Expertly curated, this versatile lineup offers something for everyone. Old school fans will be excited by acts like @felixdahousecat, @cut_chemist, @officialgreenvelvet, @ronisizebristol & @dj_krust's @fullcyclerecords revival, @andyc_ramagram, @casparusko, @questlove, & @nightmaresonwax, while newer electronic music fans will be delighted by acts like @snailmusic @boysnoize, @hermitude, @marshmellomusic, and much much more! As always, the lineup includes a host of crowd favourites, veterans, up-and-comers, and bonafide legends. Make sure your dancing shoes are broken in, because your feet won’t stop moving all week. We can’t wait for you to come dance with us this August! #Shambhala2016
Shambhala, set on Salmo River Ranch, Canada, has teased their audience with a little taste of what’s sure to be a killer lineup. The headliner lineup was released last week, after dropping a teaser announcing that Dim Mak and Mad Decent-affiliated trio Keys N Krates will be gracing their stages.
Since the lineup release, however, we’ve learned that Baishaus and Datsik’s new project, Ephwurd, will be making their first performance at the festival. The duo infuses their signature house music with dirty bass beats, causing absolute chaos and instilling serious havoc on every dance floor. It’s clear that this will be a historical event, bringing these two “home.”
Shambhala has a unique feel and is held yearly at Salmo River Ranch, buried deep in the Canadian forest. Generally, attendees flood through the gate (running, even) as early as Tuesday, while the music starts to blast off on Thursday-Sunday morning. The festival is set for August 5-8, 2016. Shambhala Music Festival boasts six stages, art installations, and the beautiful natural landscapes only found on the ranch. This won’t be a festival to miss, so make sure you get your travel arrangements sorted out soon. The festival lineup may be up, but oftentimes you can find artists “surprising” the audience with select guest performances.
