EPROM attacked by crazed fan during Shambhala set
EPROM fell victim to a rare case of violence on the first night of Shambhala Music Festival. According to a post on his Instagram page, the left-field bass producer had been playing his set when suddenly a crazed fan tackled him on stage, punching him and later placing him in choke hold while biting his head until fellow artist Zeke Beats came to his assistance. He also commented that the attacker appeared to have been on strong drugs.
Luckily, no serious injuries resulted for EPROM, who generally maintained a humorous take on the incident. “Watch out for zombie attacks out there kids,” he quipped on his post.
Shambhala runs until August 8 on its usual location at the Salmo River Ranch in British Columbia. It is one of Canada’s oldest and well-respected transformational gatherings, having drawn festival goers from all over the world to its grounds since 1998. Artists playing at the 2016 edition include Destructo, Emancipator, Beats Antique, and more.
Last night while playing my set I was attacked on stage by a crazed fan who was apparently under the influence of some strong drugs. He rushed the stage, decked me to the ground, put me in a choke hold and started biting my head. I managed to get him off with the help of @zeke_beats, thanks bro. Watch out for zombie attacks out there kids.
