Celebrate the summer solstice in synchronistic style at Sonic Bloom. Now in its eleventh edition, Sonic Bloom continues to outdo itself with an incredibly solid 2016 lineup.
For their phase three lineup announcement, Bloom is adding huge names like Break Science, Wick-it The Instigator, and Colorado native Jantsen, alongside several stellar acts. The festival will be returning to the site of its parturition at the scenic Hummingbird Ranch, nestled on the foothills of the Spanish Peak Mountains. The pair of massive snow-capped peaks provide a stunning backdrop to what is guaranteed to be an incredible weekend of music and community. From June 16th through the 19th, the bass will be thumping and artists the likes of Adam Deitch, Family Moons Collective ft. Omega, Abstract Rude, Seied, and Subaqueous will be providing crowds plenty of great vibes and even better music.
Although crowds will be kicking up quite a racket at Sonic Bloom, it is also noteworthy that organizers have taken huge strides towards making Sonic Bloom a truly green experience. In addition to utilizing solar energy provided by SunPort, Bloom continues working towards sourcing their electricity from alternative sources; all part of a long-term goal of completely eliminating reliance on fossil fuels. In this regard Sonic Bloom deserves more praise than simply exalting their amazing artist roster. Positioning itself as one of the few festivals that adhere to a strict code of resource sustainability, Bloom should be a role model for event organizers worldwide. Not only will Bloom possess meticulously arranged decorations throughout its sprawling grounds (which include a bubbling brook and breathtaking alpine views), it will also include innumerable workshops and art galleries that showcase artists nationwide, ensuring that Bloom will be a transformative, mind-expanding experience.
A multitude of different passes and camping options are available. From the boilerplate GA option with car camping, RV camping, and VIP packages, you should tell your boss you’ll be sick from June 15th to the 19th and that the only cure will be raging out in the rugged Colorado wilderness with some of your closest friends and favorite artists. Additionally, a weekend of pre-parties from April 28th to the 30th in the Denver and Fort Collins areas will offer a taste of what is guaranteed to be a life-changing weekend this June. On a more somber note, the pre-parties will be a tribute to Nicholas “Pumpkin” Alvarado, who tragically passed away following a traffic collision a few weeks earlier. The community will always remember him for his loving kindness and incredibly prolific performances.
Tickets for the “Unified Field” Denver and Fort Collins pre parties are available now. Don’t forget to grab passes to Sonic Bloom before they sell out and be sure to RSVP so you can begin establishing friendships for a lifetime.
