“Shambhala is a one-of-a-kind musical experience in a truly magical location. It’s one of the few places that you feel like everything around you is working cohesively to deliver the best experience possible from the production crew and artists all the way down to the attendees. Everyone’s involved, but it’s bigger than all of us. It’s the sort of magic you can’t explain, you just have to experience it for yourself.”

What were your favourite moments from the festival this year?
What part has Shambhala Music Festival played in your journey as an artist?
What is your favourite stage?
All the stages are amazing with their own vibe, but we have to say that the Pagoda is our favorite. We’ve played the stage twice, so it’s sort of our Shambhala home, the place where we take everyone to the BTSM Church on Sundays. It’s really special to play on such a unique structure, surrounded by trees; it gives the visuals a totally different feeling.
How does Shambhala compare to other festivals that you’ve played at?
Shambhala is super different from other festivals. It feels more communal and less commercial. All the stages are very well put-together and unique. The musical curation is definitely on point too, so many great diverse artists involved. You’ll see artists at Shambhala that you won’t see on other festivals. And most importantly, the audience is so positive, kind and welcoming.
