With only 16 days left until the gates of Shambala Festival open once more, we are all seriously excited! We received the final draft of the program yesterday, and it is jammed full of incredible musical acts, crazy cabaret , wonderful workshops and so much more it would be impossible to list it all here… Well, of course it would be possible- it would just take me ages and it would totally spoil the surprise when you arrive!
I suppose though, that i can let a few juicy musical treats out of the bag- exclusive information for the Jibbering Massive!
There will be Brum’s very own 2-tone heroes, The Beat, headlining Friday night on the Main Stage. The Nextmen will be kicking up a reggae-hiphop storm in the Dome on Saturday. The legendary Nicky Blackmarket will be spinning choice cuts for the Junglist massive, while The Destroyers will be battling with the Dhol Blasters. Lastly, i am delighted to say that, after many year’s of trying, we have finally secured a slot from the awesome Overproof Soundsystem, Birmingham’s finest roots n steppa dub live act who have just finished a sell out tour of New Zealand and Australia. There are, of course, loads more bands playing folk, blues, jazz, ska, skiffle, rock n roll, hiphop, breaks and beyond… but you are going to have to wait to find out who!!
Tickets are selling fast and we will sell out before the event. So, if you haven’t already got one… get on it!! Get them either in person from Jibbering in Moseley or Online through The Ticketsellers.
