Jungle Cakes Takeover
While the rest of the drum and bass at The Village this summer is great, the Jungle Cakes Takeover is the true high-point for fans of the genre. Featuring Benny Page, Deekline, Ed Solo, and General Levy, fans of DnB couldn’t ask for much more. The UK label is one of the premier destinations for fans searching for the latest and greatest in drum and bass tunes. We’re excited to see how this takeover takes shape in terms of set times. A night full of Jungle Cakes tunes sounds just fine to us.
The other takeover, from Liquid Stranger’s Wakaan label, doesn’t feature much in the way of guaranteed drum and bass. But, Liquid Stranger dropping some drum and bass at The Village wouldn’t be a huge surprise.
Ragga Jungle Rinse Out & Sunrise Sessions
Of course, record label takeovers and headlining acts are easy to make time for and appreciate. But if those sets just aren’t enough drum and bass for you, or even if they are, taking some of your valuable time on The Farm for the Ragga Jungle Rinse Out and Sunrise Sessions is a must for Shambhala newbies and veterans alike.
Steve Hush hosts the Ragga Jungle Rinse Out. It’s a several hours long block of drum and bass greatness from a handful of artists. It’s opened the proceedings at The Village for the last few years, and is a great way to prep for a weekend full of fun.
Spiral Architects hosts Sunrise Sessions (formerly Liquid Sunrise Jam). It provides a similarly enjoyable block of liquid drum and bass from several artists at The Village. But, in a different way. Taking place during sunrise (duh) on one of the weekend’s mornings, Sunrise Sessions are the perfect way to realize you’ve stayed up all night. Only to then realize you aren’t done dancing yet. Enjoying the late-summer sunrise at The Farm, while getting down to some drum and bass tunes with our closest friends, is what Shambhala is all about.
Update 4/16: We now know who will be performing during the Sunrise Sessions!
There are many great acts coming to Shambhala 2019, and the DnB contingent is still one of the bright spots of the weekend. Let us know what you think of the drum and bass action joining us at The Village this summer, and which artists you’re excited to see most! Comment on Facebook, or reply on Twitter!
