Shambhala is back with their 2018 lineup! This year’s artist roster melds old school, with names like Aphrodite, Dizzee Rascal, DJ Maseo (Of De La Soul fame!) and Joker, with the best in established current talent, including masked virtuosos Black Tiger Sex Machine, Dirtybird pioneer Claude Von Stroke, and Destructo. After the tumultuous, but incredible 20th anniversary, we here at DMNW have been waiting patiently (or not) for the reveal of the next installment. Rumours have been flying around almost since we left the ranch, and with announcements like REZZ, The Glitch Mob, and DJ Qbert already made, we were all pretty sure the lineup was going to leave us stunned as ever. AND BOY, WERE WE CORRECT! Plus, there seems to be a massive influx of drum n bass, with names like DC Breaks and Loadstar playing a b2b set for the ages, and the return of Delta Heavy after the fires cancelled their 2017 appearance. And of course, Shambhala would not be complete without some west coast flavour, with our friends The Funk Hunters, Neon Steve, Whipped Cream, and so many more rounding out this absolutely incredible first wave. This is one of the most immersive and well-rounded lineups we’ve seen from this festival, with a mix of crafted favourites, brand new up and comers, and Shambhala residents, this is sure to be the BEST TIME EVER! With full stages dropping their lineups on April 9th, we’re waiting to see just what else they could pack in! Who’s joining us on the Farm for another year?
