In the mountains of southeastern British Columbia sits Nelson, home to Shambhala Music Festival—the beating heart of Canada's bass music scene. With a progressive philosophy emphasizing community and harm reduction, the annual event has been shaking the ground for nearly 20 years.

In part two of SUB.Culture British Columbia, THUMP visits the family-owned farm where Shambhala's stages are built from wood, and people dance like no one's watching. We speak with the festival's founder, Jimmy Bundschuh; crowd favorites like Datsik; and Stacey Lock, the festival's harm reduction director about what makes the people—and mountain air—of Shambhala unlike anything else in the world.
