Manifestation Media’s SONIC BLOOM 2018 Festival Pro Tips + TOP 7 MUST SEE MUSIC ACTS + Full Festival Lineup & Schedule!

SO HYPED to say that there is less than 1 week until the 13th annual SONIC BLOOM! Finding & falling in love at, making friends, learning, growing, and working for SONIC BLOOM has absolutely been one of the greatest challenges yet most fulfilling joys in my life so far. 2018 will be my 6th year in a row at the festival and my second year as OFFICIAL PROMO TEAM STAFF! I will be at the festival creating the INSTAGRAM STORY for the weekend. Find me at the festival to get blasted on social media.

As a longtime festival goer, I have a nice list of what I am calling my “Festival Pro Tips” including a couple pieces of advice when it comes to surviving and THRIVING the SONIC BLOOM experience.

It is also important to note, that no matter how hard I attempt to prepare in the best possible way, each festival I go to is truly a unique adventure full of plenty of surprises that can usually neither be planned nor properly packed for in advance. So consider my tips a gentle nudge in the direction of success.

Ultimately how much fun you have a seems to have more to do with your attitude and your willingness to SURRENDER TO THE FLOW & GRACEFULLY BLOOM into each magical moment of the experience. 

 

MANIFESTATION MEDIA’S FESTIVAL PRO TIPS:

 

#1 – TAKE BUS TO SHOW!

Looking for the best way to get to the festival from the Denver area? Join the party on the way to the party. The Homies at BTS are doing rides from Denver’s Union Station directly to Hummingbird Ranch.

Save Gas. Save Lives. Save Earth.

#2 – GRAB AN EARLY ENTRY PASS 

Arrive early on WEDNESDAY to get the best possible camping spot and settle into your space before the crowd hits to actually enjoy the first day of the festival.

#3 – GO VIP 

Arrive early and get the best of the best in camping access, beverages, food, a merch package & MORE!

#4 – VISIT THE OASIS BATH HOUSE 

Plan in advance to take a hot shower and maybe even get a massage before hitting the dance floor Saturday night. In my experience taking the time to refresh and take care of yourself is 100% WORTH IT. Step onto the dance floor feeling INVIGORATED and ready to DANCE ALL NIGHT! 

OASIS

#5 – DOWNLOAD THE FESTIVAL APP & PRINT MULTIPLE DAILY SCHEDULES AT HOME (Attached below) 

Keep one schedule at your camp and the other one in your bag or pocket for easy dance floor access. 

>>> DOWNLOAD APP HERE <<<

#6 – BRING A HEADLAMP/FLASHLIGHT + EXTRA BATTERIES

While the primary festival areas will be lighted by an amazing glow of magical art installations, stage lighting, and bright generator powered lighting, the porta potties and the late night/early morning walk back to your campsite could be dark and treacherous. The festival is held on a ranch in the “Rocky Mountains” therefore is rocky and rugged terrain. TAKE IT SLOW and BRING A FLASHLIGHT to avoid dangerous travel and scary potty situations. 

41g9UzrTzrL._SL500_AC_SS350_.jpg

#7 – BRING A REUSABLE WATER CONTAINER & DRINK LOTS OF WATER

Colorado’s hot and dry climate + high elevation is a recipe for dehydration if you are not fully aware of your water intake. Water is free and available at various locations throughout the festival site so take full advantage and drink as much as you can. If you are concerned about the quality of the water (as many are) consider grabbing a bottle with a filter built into it. Another idea to consider is to bring a refillable 1-5 gallon jug to keep back at camp so you don’t always have to go to the water stations for a refill. 

SB16_Merch_Water-Bottle_1.0.png

#8 – BRING QUALITY CAMPING AND OUTDOOR PROTECTION – DOUBLE CHECK ALL CAMPING GEAR BEFORE YOU ARRIVE.

Make sure you don’t forget things like stakes for your tent as high wind conditions may exist and you 100% DO NEED to fully stake down all tents. Camping gear that is in good shape, Sunblock + Aloe Vera Gel, Hats, Tarps, Raincoats, comfortable Sneakers AND/OR Boots, Sandals and so many more things should be considered when packing for a multiple-day adventure at Hummingbird Ranch.

 >>> REVIEW THIS CAMPING CHECKLIST OF IMPORTANT ITEMS TO BRING!<<

#9 – READ BOTH THE HEALTH & SAFETY TIPS AND THE FAQ’S ON SONIC BLOOM WEBSITE! 

#10 – FOLLOW THE RULES!

Everybody comes to SONIC BLOOM to have a great time, so do your part by following these simple guidelines to ensure your experience is as good as it possibly can be. KEY ITEMS HERE – NO GLASS, NO WEAPONS, & NO PETS!

#11 – BRING CASH & KEEP IT SAFE ON YOUR PERSON!

There will not be an ATM at the Box Office so you will need to be 100% prepared prior to arrival on site with your tickets. The ATM that does exist inside the festival is expensive and not always reliable in terms of being a great solution for getting cash. I highly recommend grabbing the cash you need prior to arrival and keeping it on your person.

#12- LEAVE YOUR PRIZED VALUABLES AT HOME & ONLY PACK IN & OUT WHAT YOU REALLY NEED!!!

I would NEVER RECOMMEND that you leave any type of valuables at your tent or campsite. Unfortunately every year people get robbed at the festival. It breaks my heart that people among us that would steal but the truth is the truth. Keep your campsite clean and tidy by only bringing what you really need to the festival. Keep expensive yet necessary items on your person and leave all other valuables locked in your car or at home. This year we also have LOCKERS available so if you don’t have a way to lock your stuff please consider this as a solution.

>>> RESERVE A LOCKER HERE <<<

MANIFESTATION MEDIA’S TOP SEVEN MUSIC ACTS TO SEE AT SONIC BLOOM 2018 

#1 – SONIC BLOOM ORCHESTRA

The SONIC BLOOM Orchestra is one of our favorite features each year! We can’t wait to see the magic that @dirtwire #Zilla@toubabkrewe@kaminanda and members of @sunsquabi@papadosio & MORE create together under the Colorado skies!

SUNDAY ON THE BLOOM STAGE 1-2AM

#2 – YAIMA

I am very excited to see one of my favorite groups in the world, Seattle based, Yaima, at this year’s bloom! This incredible medicine music duo has been amazing to heal too and watch transform over the last few years since I met them one night at Cervantes when they opened for The Human Experience. I am so elated they were finally booked for SONIC BLOOM. So much love to Pepper Proud for being an amazing friend and supporter of Manifestation Media over the last few years.

FRIDAY 8-9:15PM ON THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE

#3 – VIBESQUAD

Don’t miss VibeSquad’s ONLY COLORADO performance of 2018. After learning through his recent video post WHY HE STOPPED DOING VIBESQUAD I am incredibly inspired to support this longtime SONIC BLOOM artist as he continues to share his love for live music production exclusively with our community.

SATURDAY 8:15-9:30 ON THE BLOOM STAGE

#4 – Maddy O’Neal

A local Colorado “lady of the moment” this set is one of my MUST SEE’s as I have truly enjoyed watching Maddy’s career evolve past prior collaboration “Krooked Drivers” and I love her fresh solo sounds. Let this uplifting hip-hop infusion of oldskool tracks with light and lifted electronic beats surprise and delight you.

FRIDAY 9:30-10:45 ON THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE (right after YAIMA)

SB18-Talent-Meme-MaddyONeal

#5 – LIQUID STRANGER 

Are you ready to let the “Weird & Wonderful” sounds of liquid’s “freeform bass” rock your world? I know I sure am. This one may just be one of the most anticipated of the festival and as the Thursday night headliner, I anticipate that it should set a great tone for the rest of the weekend at Hummingbird Ranch.

THURSDAY 12:45-2AM ON THE BLOOM STAGE 

SB18-Talent-Meme-LiquidStranger (1)

#6 – DIGITAL ETHOS 

Have you guys listened to his Beat Lab Radio 127 SoundCloud mix? I have had this on repeat for like a year now so this one is purely based on hoping that his SONIC BLOOM set is similar in magic to this SoundCloud mix.

SUNDAY 8:15-9:15PM ON THE MEADOW STAGE 

SB18-Talent-Meme-DigitalEthos

#7 – JADE CICADA

I had the pleasure of meeting Jade Cicada & his management team in Nashville, TN last August as a muggy rain began to fall outside of the War Memorial Auditorium at the 1st ever “Deep Tropics” EDM festival that I worked as the VIP coordinator at. I remember talking to the crew about SONIC BLOOM and dreaming together that he would get to play at the festival this year. While I wasn’t “really” involved in his being booked for this year’s bloom I do feel like it was that rainy night in Nashville that we collectively put the idea out to the universe and hoped for him to make his debut at bloom this year, AND SO IT IS. THE MAGIC OF MANIFESTATION IS REAL! Just simply ASK the universe for what you want and watch the magic of manifestation unfold before your eyes.

FRIDAY 12-1:15AM ON THE HUMMINGBIRD STAGE

SONIC BLOOM 2018 – Phase 1 Line-Up Announced + My BLOOM STAFF STORY + GET INVOLVED & MAKE AN IMPACT!

Feeling incredibly hyped to announce I will be working with some of the best in the industry to promote the 2018 SONIC BLOOM festival! Finding & falling in love, making friends, learning, growing, and working my ass off for #SONICBLOOM has been one of the greatest challenges yet most fulfilling joys in my life so far. This year will be my 6th time being present at the festival and my second year as official PROMO TEAM STAFF!

The first time I earned a ticket to SONIC BLOOM was in 2013, the very last year the festival was held at Shadows Ranch in Georgetown, Colorado. I applied to be on the street team that is managed by Jon Eisenberg aka Blackspy Marketing. Jon and I have worked together for years now and I have so much respect for what he does. If you want to join a killer street team and go to the best shows ever in exchange for promotion work, visit Blackspy Marketing.com & SIGN UP NOW.

ME AT SONIC BLOOM 2013 – THE 1ST YEAR I STREET TEAMED!

BEFORE, the 2013 festival in April 2013, I was INSPIRED to created THE SONIC BLOOM FESTIVAL COMMUNITY group on facebook. Facebook groups had just started to take off in popularity at that point and I guess I figured it would be a way to keep in touch the “few friends” I had met at the festival. Nearly six years and six thousand+ community group members later, I manifested the job of Social Media Strategist & Community Outreach Manager for the 2018 festival season. YAY! I LOVE MY JOB!

How did I EARN my SONIC BLOOM festival ticket in the years 2014 & 2015? I joined the STREET TEAM AND I HELPED BUILD & MANAGE the live glassblowing ART INSTALLATION at the festival. It was in these years that I earned the name” Glassy Mermaid”. I love glass art and got to blow glass live at the festival in the years I went as part of this art installation team. The live-glassblowing installation is one of the very best installations at SONIC BLOOM and is a MUST SEE!

LIVE GLASSBLOWING AT SONIC BLOOM 2015

In 2016, I was single & sad because my house had just burned down. Ironically, IT WAS NOT A GLASSBLOWING ACCIDENT. LOL! I knew I needed to GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY HEAD AND FOCUS ON BUILDING SOMETHING NEW. So I signed up as an unpaid volunteer and was placed in the production office because of my prior work in the office setting for ARISE Festival. At the time I lived with the Rainbow Lightning Children’s Village lead coordinator Taylor Martin and her partner DJ Rob Treaphort. I want to take this moment to say THANK YOU to Taylor & Rob for helping me heal from the tragedy of my house burning down and being my best festival friends in 2016 at SONIC BLOOM. You both helped me heal so much from the pain I was going through and rediscover my inner child.

Later that year in December 2016 I was added on Facebook and approached by the producer Jamie Janover. After sharing my extensive backstory and sharing how much the festival had changed my life, I was offered a paying gig on the festival social media promotion team. In 2017, I worked on the production team as a Social Media Strategist and consultant pre-festival and on-site during the event.  I loved creating the Instagram story and can’t wait to do an even better one this year.

My Costa Rican yogi story + Envision 2018 yoga lineup!

Getting excited!!! Just 65 DAYS! I leave the second week in February for another 15+ day adventure to the birthplace of many of my ancestors. I learned recently that while my name is very french my heritage is mostly Spanish & German. Many of my Spanish ancestors settled in Costa Rica and my great-grandfather was the bodyguard for the president at one point. Everything I have learned about my Costa Rican heritage has fascinated and excited me. Every juicy insight from the past draws my interest to this special country and its rich natural beauty.

🐒🦋🐢🐠🌴🌊🏄🏻‍♀️🎨🌋

As a kid, I grew up doing #Yoga in front of my TV with my mothers Rodney Yee cassette tapes! My favorite flavor of yoga practice is typically a vinyasa flow though I have done different forms like, yin-yoga and hatha yoga and enjoyed those as well. My practice isn’t competitive it’s internal and focused. It’s sacred but not religious for me. Yoga is something that I love doing for the sake of doing. I push myself every class & never worry about “looking good” doing it. Yoga means more to me every time I do it. I have enjoyed practicing all over the USA at some of the very best yoga festivals and events, there is absolutely nothing else like practicing yoga in the #jungle at Envision Festival! Pure soul-sweat magic!

✨🐒✨ #meetmeonthebeach feb 22-25 2018 & make sure to enter for a chance to win TWO 4-Day VIP ‘Casa de Luz’ Passes to Envision Festival 2018 (Valued at $2000!)🤸🏽‍♀️🏝

EVENT DETAILS: Desert Dwellers consists of Amani Friend and Treavor Moontribe, who began their careers as independent music producers and DJs in the deserts of New Mexico and California. Coming together in the late ’90s after connecting through the legendary Moontribe scene, today the duo enjoys a reputation as one of the most pioneering and prolific downtempo, psy-bass, and tribal trance acts in the United States. Desert Dwellers have toured extensively across six continents, spent a 7-week stretch on the road with renowned psychedelic artist Shpongle, and have performed at dozens of festivals, most notably Shambhala, Lightning in a Bottle, Envision, Coachella, Rainbow Serpent, and Boom. Taking a new approach to digital production, Amani and Treavor have combined the raw sounds of the natural world while skillfully blended deep bass, earthy percussion, etheric voices and cross-cultural instrumentation into sonic incense for the mind and body. Bringing the electronic music vibe to the yoga scene, and the sounds of yoga to the electronic dance scene, Desert Dwellers’ global sounds are the bridge between the worlds of dance and movement.

MEET YOU ON THE BEACH! My top 7 picks from the Envision Festival 2018 1st wave lineup!

 

Instagram.jpg

Got my first package of promo in the mail today from Envision Festival! Let me know if you would like one of the awesome stickers they sent me (pictured below). I was accepted to the Street Team this year and I am so grateful to be heading back to Costa Rica this February 22-25th for the 8th annual Envision. The 1st wave lineup was recently released and features some of my personal favorite internationally renowned musicians, yoga instructors, performance artist, and workshop speakers.

My top 7 picks from the lineup so far: Bob Moses, who I got to see in August in an intimate setting at Deep Tropics and really loved. Clozee, who has quickly become my favorite #FemaleProducer in the world. Stephen Brooks, who is the man with the plan when it comes to all thing Eco or sustainability-related at Envision. Random Rab, who I hope to see for yet another mystical jungle sunrise. Gina Caputo, who is the “yogini on the loose” from Colorado that I have yet to get to practice Yoga with. DJ Dragonfly, who totally rocked my world with THIS SET at Envision 2017. AND Patterns, my “wildcard” synth pop Costa Rican trio that I have this sneaking suspicion just might rock my world.

I fell in love with Costa Rica on my first ever 15-day trip there last February with my boyfriend Kevin. I had never been there before and I am 1/8th Costa Rican and Kevin is 1/2 Costa Rican so when I heard him mention that he was planning a trip there I decided last minute to go.

The trip started with an adventurous 5 days in San José, visiting Kevin’s family and enjoying the Barceló San José. On Friday, we headed to Jacó to for the weekend to experience Bamboo Bass Festival. This smaller festival the weekend before was pretty inexpensive and was really fun for us as we are huge bassheads. The Monday after Bamboo we drove down Costa Rica’s beautiful west coastline to Uvita where we stayed at the magical Cheeky Monkey Headquarters, a total score of an Airbnb we rented last minute a short 6 min drive into town from the Envision site. The following week I Interned in the Hospitality department at the festival. Read my prior related blog post about my experience at Envision 2017: “The 7 Lucky Things I learned as an Envision 2017 Intern.”

While I learned so much and loved my incredible experience as an intern in the Hospitality department in 2017, I left the festival feeling the need for less work and more play time on the beach. So this year I am “stepping back” from a hands-on work role in order to really experience the festival as an attendee. I am excited to earn my ticket BEFORE the festival starts so that I may FLY FREE in 2018. I am looking forward to going with the flow and really being able to immerse myself in the experience.

In 2017 I fell in love with my twin flame (Kevin) in the birthplace of our ancestors.

In 2018 I will SWIM MORE! DANCE MORE! PLAY MORE! & LET ENVISION FESTIVAL ROOT ME DOWN & TRANSFORM ME.

ARE YOU READY FOR THE FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME??? MEET ME ON THE BEACH!
