Shambhala Music Festival 2019 is quickly approaching, and this year’s installment boasts one of the festival’s most diverse lineups yet. With so much to choose from, it can be hard to decide where to go and who to see. Luckily, no matter where you end up, you’re bound to hear some incredible music.
We put together a list of five artists we think are must-sees at this year’s festival. Let us know who you think we missed in the comments below! If you haven’t already, grab your tickets and see the full lineup at shambhalamusicfestival.com.
Anti Up, the brainchild of Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo, is basically a dream for any house music fans. If you’re not already a house head, they might just convert you. With this project launched just last year, you’re sure to hear new and fresh sounds. Being one of only three North American festival appearances this year for Anti Up, you won’t want to miss this.
Ganja White Night
Belgian bass duo Ganja White Night has just had one of their biggest years yet after the release of last year’s ‘The Origins’ album. The act is known to put on a great show, but with how much new music the act has been teasing in recent performances, you’ll want to be there to get a taste of what’s to come.
DJ/producer Minnesota is known for his bass-infused glitch-hop productions and genre-bending mixtapes. The WAKAAN regular and Outer Realms label boss is sure to curate an experimental set full of free-form bass heavy-hitters and unique edits. If you’re not catching any of the other tour stops on his Fall/Summer tour, then take advantage of his Shambhala appearance.
Subtronics is one of the most in-demand acts in dubstep at the moment, and with very good reason. With releases on labels like Disciple, Never Say Die, Kannibalen, his very own imprint and more, there is no doubt that this set will be packed, so get there early. His most recent ‘NOW THATS WHAT I CALL RIDDIM’ mixtape just surpassed a million plays, so if that isn’t reason enough to catch his set, then I don’t know what is.
Known for putting on an epic show, you’ll want to strap in for the experience that is ZHU. The GRAMMY-nominated house music pioneer put out his ‘RINGOS DESERT’ album in 2018, which kicked off his sold-out DUNE tour, and now he’s back for a handful of festival dates this summer. This will surely be one of the most well-curated sets of Shambhala 2019, so make sure to take it all in.
