A glimpse of hope for music festival fans surfaced over the weekend when the famed Canadian dance music fest, Shambhala Music Festival, announced plans to return to the Salmo River Ranch in 2021.
Originally, the festival was set to run in late July 2020, but to err on the side of caution, Shambhala will now take place from August 20th to 23rd, 2021. Although it is a ways away, the new announcement gives festival-goers something to look forward to. In the meantime, it is important to remain positive and stay informed about the country's health and safety protocols.
Tickets purchased for the 2020 iteration of Shambhala are redeemable for the next three years. In order to confirm redemption, ticket-holders have been asked to determine their desired year of attendance and the deadline for securing the transfer will be announced in 2021.
