Shambhala Music Festival is celebrating its 20th year in 2017, and we couldn’t be more excited to join them in those festivities. To that end, we chatted with a handful of their stage directors, asking them two simple questions: What does the 20th annual Shambhala mean to you, and how will that be reflected in your stage this year? So without further ado, let’s dive right in, shall we? First up: Jeremy Bridge, PK Sound CEO, and Village Stage director The Village What does the 20th annual Shambhala mean to you? Looking back at the last 20 years we see the creation of amazing community that has shared their love and passion openly. Something small that started in the back corner of a small music festival in BC has grown to reach across the world with international impact. New friends, new families, new companies all born sharing music and love. But also we are looking forward to the next 20 years because we are just getting started and we can use this foundation to spread the infectious passion and love far and wide. How will that be reflected in your stage this year? We have created new back zones and new art installations with a close and intimate moody vibe to bring people together to inspire creativity and joy. We have new sound technology to shake your insides like never before and we are setting the foundation for something huge in the close future.
