Official Shambhala Warm Up Parties Hitting The PNW

Shambhala Music Festival is getting closer and closer, and DMNW couldn’t be any more excited to be returning to the farm for another year of summertime shenanigans! But, that only brings us to the home stretch of the waiting game; the point in the Shambhala calendar year where days just seem to crawl by at a pace a snail would be proud of.

Will August ever come?!?!? Yes, eventually. In the mean time, trying to fill the gap between now and our annual pilgrimage to the Salmo River Ranch can be a bit of an uphill battle. Thankfully, DMNW is filling the void North of the border with festivals like Bass Coast and Motion Notion, but since not much else compares to those vibes from the farm, we’re also checking out the official Shambhala warm up parties starting in June!

Don’t have a ticket to the farm? Can’t wait until August to feel the Shambhalove? Don’t sweat it, because Shambhala is bringing the party to you, with 10 stops between Edmonton and LA. Better yet, each show will feature at least one different Shambhala 2016 artist, like LWSD in Vancouver; The Gaslamp Killer and Space Jesus in Seattle; JPOD, Neighbour, Adham Shaikh, and Dubconscious in Kelowna; and Eprom in Los Angeles (along with the godfather of grime – Joker)!

While details for most shows are still rolling in, Vancouver, Seattle, Kelowna, and LA have already been announced and tickets are on sale by clicking on the respective link below. Hopefully we all learned something from how quickly the festival sold out this year and don’t hesitate on picking up these tickets, but we’ll leave that in your capable hands! Meanwhile, keep an eye out for events in Victoria, Nelson, Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, and Denver as they’re announced.

DMNW can’t wait until we’re back on the farm this August, but in the mean time these should hold us over until we’re back breathing in that *sweet, sweet dust once again.

Which Shambhala warm up show(s) are you going to be attending? If you see the DMNW crew in your city, make sure to ask us for free high fives!!

*Note: Dust is not really sweet, and actually sucks to breathe. Wear a bandana.
