Dancing Astronaut has been gifted with an exclusive, hour-long mix from the outfit, that will give all attendees a wondrous preview of what will be heard at the farm.
Shambhala is known as the largest and longest running electronic music festival in Canada and exhibits a strong sense of community and respect for all artistic expression. Shambhala is located on a family-owned farm in the West Kootenay mountains near Nelson, British Columbia. The festival is an all-around transformative experience that leaves you overly stimulated for 4 days and 3 nights. This year’s lineup includes other legendary acts such as Silk City (Diplo and Mark Ronson), Anti-Up (Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo), and Zeds Dead. Every performer puts together a special set for Shambhala, so we can only imagine the type of production Jack Beats will bless the farm with.
