The DMNW Shambhala Stage-by-Stage Preview: The Pagoda


Saturday at The Pagoda begins at 4 p.m., joining The Fractal Forest as the last stage open on day two of the festival. Sweet Pickle takes the stage from 4 p.m. – 5 p.m., while Freebound does the same from 5 p.m. – 6 p.m. Then, from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. our hearts will be heavy as we celebrate the life of Pumpkin, also known as Nicholas Alvarado. Everyman will be playing a tribute set to the Shambhala-regular and fan-favorite, and we hope you’ll join us in attendance for at least a portion of the set.

The tribute will be followed by a 90-minute set from 2TIGHT, a vocalist/producer combo that has performed at Northern Lights, Lightning in a Bottle, and more this summer. Then, fan-favorites and one of the major breakout acts of the last couple years takes the stage when Hotel Garuda performs from 8:30 p.m. – 10 p.m.

One of the best live-acts in all of electronic music, Chicago’s Autograf is yet another set we’ll be running from stage-to-stage making sure we catch when they perform from 10 p.m. – 11:20 p.m. Then we’ll be treated to a quick, second set of the festival, from fan-favorite Mat The Alien, who performs from 11:20 p.m. – 11:40 p.m.

After the quick-set, Beats Antique featuring David Satori and Tommy Sidecar take the stage to showcase their blend of middle-eastern, downtempo, hip-hop, jazz, and more from 11:40 p.m. – 1 a.m. Another brilliant booking by the wonderful folks at the festival, Beats Antique at The Pagoda is everything we love about Shambhala. European duo Amine Edge & Dance will follow-up with their combination of house, funk, and breakbeat from 1 a.m. – 2:30 a.m., giving attendees at The Pagoda a variety of tunes to enjoy on Saturday.

We keep mentioning can’t miss sets, and at a festival like Shambhala, there’s bound to be more than a few. But, we take few more seriously than rising-star REZZ’s performance at The Pagoda from 2:30 a.m. – 4 a.m. on day two of Shambhala. The Mau5trap artist has been on the up-and-up since the end of 2015, releasing original tunes, mixes, and live-sets that have every dance music fan wanting a piece of the Niagra Falls-native. The stage will then wrap-up the second day of fun with a set from Frenchman Teemid from 4 a.m. – 5:30 a.m.
