The countdown to Shambhala is officially on.
Following not one, but two postponements due to the global pandemic, Canada's longest-running independent music gathering is set to return. At long last, the 23rd edition of Shambhala is set to take place from July 22nd to 25th, 2022.
With the fest less than 100 days away, Shambhala organizers have announced a massive lineup to fan the flames of the excitement surrounding the event's long-awaited return. What has been commonly dubbed as a "farmily reunion" for the past 20-plus years will finally reach its full potential this summer.
Set to headline the beloved Canadian fest are Australian tastemaker What So Not, French "world bass" purveyor CloZee, Grammy-nominated electronic music virtuoso TOKiMONSTA, and house music superstar Chris Lake, among others.
Shambhala wouldn't be the same without performances from the likes of SkiiTour—who kick off the festivities on Thursday—as well as The Funk Hunters, Moontricks, Neon Steve, Dr. Fresch, Opiuo, The Librarian, Of The Trees, A.Skillz, Krafty Kuts, Smalltown DJs, Slynk, Fort Knox Five and Qdup.
