Shambhala Music Festival is the BIG one. It’s the music festival that all the other festivals I photograph lead up to and the one that shakes the ground and lights up the night sky in a ridiculous explosion of bass and stage design. The people are the most die-hard, the lasers are the biggest and the costumes blow my mind. It is, in short, a monsoon of indulgence and stimulation. A wonderland for adults that has people marking it on their calendars for next year before they even leave the festival grounds.

Last year was my fifth year photographing Shambhala and, in many ways, the best. I have been lucky enough to join an amazing crew in The Grove, a stage that I feel is leading the way in sustainable partying. With well attended workshops in the day and world-class music and performances at night it was a joy to be a part of the team and watch it unfold as the week went on through hard work and creativity.

My gratitude goes out to everyone involved in this festival including Byron Whitlaw for having The Grove vision, Ruhamah Marie for bringing the performances to life, Ricardo Hubbs for getting me on the media team in the first place, Mitchell Scott and Britz Robbins for leading the team last year, the First Aid crew for keeping people safe in the craziest of environments.

I especially want to thank Shambhala and all its patrons for making this beast of beauty what it is. Every year my mind is melted and reconfigured just a little bit more and I know I’ll be back for more the following year. Looking forward to Shambhala 2016!
