Sometimes, when we hear the words, ‘music festival' our minds quickly think of, ‘party,’ or ‘rave'. Shambhala is definitely a massive celebration in the forest, there’s no doubt about that. This year was especially exciting as it was the 20th Anniversary of Shambhala Music Festival. Just like every year, it took place at The Salmo River Ranch.  For two decades this gathering has been happening.

I grew up in a hockey arena watching my brothers, and in between that I was doing my own activities.  I remember being on the volleyball court with fake eyelashes and my dance makeup on.
