If you’re always in search of the next headbanging hit, The Village Stage is most likely the place for you. Many of the DMNW staff love this stage with a passion and who can blame us? The stage has a sci-fi meets ancient civilization,  meeting the supernatural. In addition, the stage is equipped with the best sound system yet: the Trinity sound system. The speakers are fully adjustable (horizontally and vertically) so the sound can be focused where it’s needed the most.


The Village Stage, known for featuring bass heavy artists, has an incredibly stacked lineup on it’s opening day. From 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. the Ragga Jungle Rinse Out hosted by Hush will have attendees warming up for a lot of headbanging. Next up is Canadian jungle and reggae artist Cain.1. Following him at 8p.m is UK DnB producer General Levy. Equally important is Lost City‘s performance, which guarantees to be a unique throwback to the early jungle days.

The night continues heating up when UK DnB producers Phibes get on-stage, until 11 p.m. when Woofax (formerly of Terravita) takes over. Montreal producer Snails brings his unique sound from 12 a.m – 1:30 a.m. Next up is wobbly bass master Dirt Monkey until midnight. On-stage at 3 a.m. is Buku whose music is described as ‘genreless’ in the app for Shambhala 2018. His unique sound led to his releases on labels like Spinnin’ Records, OWSLA’s NEST HQ and more.
New Zealand producers Truth are the second to last act of the night going from 4 a.m until Mr. B takes over from 5 a.m. – 6:30 a.m.


Canadian turntablist DJ Jetts kicks off Saturday’s Village for its 5 p.m. opening. Big B takes the stage from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. This performance precedes Dua & Generic, a duo who are the second act from Victoria playing at the stage on Saturday. One half of the duo, named Dua, is in charge of Blueprint Victoria and is also Stage Supervisor at The Village.

Starting at 8 p.m. the bass-centric stage starts to heat up when Stylust mixes his fusion of dubstep and trap, among other genres. Turntablist and a member of The Village Stage sound crew  DJ Anger will be onstage at 10 p.m, when fan-favorite Subvert hits the decks. Dub-hop artist Protohype was scheduled to come onstage at 11 p.m., however, due to medical concerns his set will be replaced by Big B w/ Secret Special Headliner. All this is followed by what was quite possibly our favorite lineup announcement. That’s right, we’re talking about the return of The Glitch Mob.

Following the highly anticipated return of The Glitch Mob is the Mexican duo Boombox Cartel. From 3 a.m. – 4:30 p.m DC Breaks B2B Loadstar as the second to last act of the night. The three hour Liquid Sunrise Jam hosted by Spiral Architects starts at 4 a.m. and runs to the stage’s closing time of 7 a.m.


Tropical bass artist Subtheory comes onstage as the first act of the last day at The Village Stage. DnB sensation Sean McCallum, known under his Triple XL moniker, will throw down some massive bangers. Following DLB‘s one hour performance is dubstep and grime producer Abstrakt Sonance, who made his Shambhala debut last year. At 9 p.m., Vancouver artist Perkulat0r will step up to the stage, followed by fan-favorite ill.Gates.

At 11 p.m. the pioneer of grime music Dizzee Rascal comes onstage and at 12:30 a.m., well-known DnB duo Camo & Krooked take over the stage for an hour and a half set. A slew of hour long sets take over the stage until close. First up, UK DnB duo Delta Heavy come back for their second Shambhala. After the set’s conclusion at 3 a.m., jungle and DnB producer Aphrodite will spread some good vibes. Finally, Shlump, known for his seamless productions that include glitch hop, dubstep and more, will pass the stage to Scottie who will play until the stage’s 6 a.m. closing.
