The lineup for a popular music festival held in a rural community, also known as "the farm," has dropped.

Shambhala Music Festival, held in Salmo, announced its headliners on its website, Feb. 28.

This year’s lineup includes popular electronic acts: BTSM, Bob Moses, Claptone, DJ Premier, Ekali and more with more than 200 artists performing on the festival’s six stages.

The music festival has been ongoing for more than 20 years, born from a Labour Day weekend in 1998 when some 500 people wanted to showcase local art and music at the Salmo River Ranch, according to the festival website.

"By 2010, 15,000 guests, artists and crew were coming to dance and be free in the wilds of interior British Columbia,” the website said. The festival also features an artisan market, with hand-crafted goods from more than 50 vendors.

Tent rentals are also available so guests don't have to haul in their own equipment.

Tickets for the 23rd annual festival are available online for $450.
