I first heard about Shambhala from a friend I made at EDC Vegas 2011. He was a Canadian native and said there was nothing like it. What made it so different? Well for one, it’s a dry festival, so there were no drunken people, which is something no other festival can state (though it does make me wonder how far everyone goes with other substances). The other part that he said separates Shambhala from other festivals is the fact that it is thrown on a family farm and the venue is absolutely gorgeous.
The thing that I am most excited about is the crowd. Shambhala is held in Canada, and Canadians are some of my favorite festivalgoers. They are super easy going, dance hard, and are just fun to be around. I really think that U.S. festivals should give Canadians discounts to encourage them to come down.
If you are still on the fence about Shambhala, go! All of those recommendations can’t be wrong. There are still a few tickets available, so check it out. See you soon!!
