BC’s Shambhala Music Festival revealed a MAJOR headliner

The Shambhala Music Festival just announced another headliner for the summer 2023 event, and the fans of the gathering are getting seriously pumped.

Popular California-based DJ RL Grime will play his bass and trap songs at the festival that draws approximately 17,000 attendees to the Kootenays.

His real name is Henry Alfred Steinway — and if that last name sounds familiar it’s because he’s the great-grandson of Heinrich Steinway who founded Steinway & Sons Pianos.

RL Grime was supposed to headline Shambhala in 2020 before that edition of the festival got canceled due to the pandemic. Shambhala returned last year after COVID-19 restrictions were lifted and this year it is happening from July 21 to 24.

The beloved-by-many festival has been happening on a farm near Nelson, BC, for more than 20 years. What makes it unique is that the stages are all permanently-built structures that are improved upon every year — no setting up and taking down stages in the middle of a field or parking lot.

Shambhala’s first headliner, Griz, was announced last month. More artists are expected to be announced closer to summer.
