Sonic Bloom Festival lands in Hummingbird Ranch, Colorado
Set where Colorado’s Spanish Peaks touch down to the high plains, the annual Sonic Bloom Festival gathers artists, performers, dancers, workshop presenters, yoga and movement instructors and a crowd from points throughout the continent for a confluence of the spiritual, the transcendental and the musical over four days and three nights.
With a musical lineup consisting of more than 70 producers and artists, Sonic Bloom – now in its 13th year – has emerged among the larger gatherings, and with that comes the refined features of an experienced festival: a curated selection of yoga classes; workshops ranging from wild herb walks to fundraising strategies for nonprofits; aerial, hoop and fire dancers; and music from day until dawn. Additionally a Kids Zone contributes to the family-friendly aspects of the festival.
Musically, artists reside across the spectrum of electronic music, with some performers set to include accompanying light visuals and live bands with their sets. From headline sets of Shpongle’s world beat electronica to the trap dance of Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak recording artists, Keys N Krates, the lineup has performers from the hip-hop, house, jungle, and electronica genres.
Hummingbird Ranch – powered by solar energy and committed to green practices – lies in scenic sun-kissed front range country about 150 miles south of Denver.
Car and tent camping are available to all attendees onsite, while daily shuttles are offered from the nearby lodging and eating amenities in the town of Walsenburg.
VIP packages and Happy Hour options are also available.
(Reno/Tahoe readers may be excited to hear that Frontier Airlines is currently offering roundtrip flights to Denver in the $120 range.)
The festival is June 14-17. Visit SonicBloomFestival.com for complete information.
