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.
