The 23rd Annual Shambhala Music Festival will take place July 22-25, 2022.

At this time, we expect the remainder of tickets for the 23rd Annual Shambhala Music Festival to go back on sale later in 2021. Please trust that as we continue to plan for the festival, we will be sure to share any updates we may receive from the government and health authorities. We will only proceed if it is absolutely safe to do so. The safety of our guests, crew and artists always comes first. 

At this time, it is too soon to confirm exactly what our next festival lineup will look like. As always, you can expect a stacked lineup for 2022 with the same world-class calibre our Stage Directors have always delivered.

Shambhala Music Festival fully intends to follow the government guidelines relating to COVID-19 practices. As the current mandates and requirements are quickly evolving, we are carefully considering all of the options. Our guests, crew and artists’ safety is our number one priority. We will take whatever steps are necessary to keep everyone safe.

We are awaiting more information, however, we are all very excited to be getting back to doing what we love while staying safe.
