Got no plans August 10-13th? Then you need to be in Salmon River, BC at one of the largest and longest running electronic music festivals in Canada.Since the beginning, it has been a family-run event and has never accepted any corporate sponsorship. In the summer months, the ranch becomes home to volunteers & event staff who contribute to repairing and adding onto the many permanent structures on site. Shambhalodging (camping) offers the ultimate festival experience: comfort, convenience, shade in your very own campsite located near the action. Now at $420 per person (includes all music shows, parking spot & camping site) for four days and nights of partying, we went over budget for this one because you're getting free access to a huge list of famous DJ's you could never afford to see for less than $50 alone. Expect to see Skillz Adventure Club Destructo and other major stars.
