DJ EPROM recovering from Shambhala Music Festival assault

A crazed fan attacked the artist during a late night set this weekend.

DJ EPROM posted this photo on his Instagram page following the attack.

Not everyone was feeling the Shambha-Love.

A crazed fan reportedly attacked performer DJ EPROM during this weekend’s Shambhala Music Festival, putting him in a chokehold until fellow artist Zeke Beats could intervene. According to a post on Instagram the raver was on drugs during the attack, in which he repeatedly punched the DJ and bit him on the skull.

Shaken but unhurt, he later posted to Instagram: “Watch out for zombie attacks out there kids”.

Nelson Inspector Tom Roy hadn’t heard about the incident when contacted by the Star, and figures organizers successfully managed the situation. Cops have impounded approximately 100 cars since the bacchanal, and are planning to release statistics on the drug and alcohol-related charges that stemmed from it.

The festival featured over 300 artists and 400 hours of live entertainment at the Salmo River Ranch.
