Feeling the LOVE & LUCK lately? At Manifestation Media HQ we are rolling in the Monday musical magic and are thrilled because one of our very favorite artist Mike Love‘s “Great Remembering” 2018 tour hits Colorado for 3 nights this weekend!
Today is Saturday, April 7th and coincidentally today I am sharing my personal selection of 7 special events for Colorado 4/20 weekend 2018. While it was insanely hard to narrow it down to just 7 events, I feel this mix truly has something 4/everyone! STONERS B WARNED. 420 has now GONE FULL WEEKEND in CO and scanning the horizon it appears it could turn full “bongathon”. =)
My “party mom” advice: take it easy breezy this 4/20 and remember slow and steady wins the golden green turtle race. Plan now to designate a driver for any events you are going to consume ANY sort of substance at. Make sure if you partake you take part in making sure you make it home safe.
And now for a little flashback to my first year living and blogging in Colorado.
Why? Because… “The seeds of the future can be found in the soil of the past.”
I remember the day I met Chris Anderson & The “Sunsquabi Boys” in Boulder, CO, the year was 2012 and I was a freshman in College. A mutual friend I met at JWU Denver campus that had gone to high school with Chris introduced me to the group. She invited me to an STS9 show that they were all going too at the chilly tail end of December at The Fillmore in Denver. I remember rocking the night away at numerous totally EPIC SunSquabi jam “after parties” on The Hill that year.
Though time has challenged all of us to grow and change to better fill the shoes of our larger SOUL PURPOSES, it was on that day 12/30/12, that the “Sunsquabi Boys” became part of my musical SOUL FAMILY and STS9 became one of my SOUL FAMILIES favorite bands.
I had no clue then that time would do such a diligent job at watering the lovingly planted SunSquabi seed, shifting and transforming the band for the better. The house parties I grew to love quickly were quickly traded for shows at some of Colorado’s best venues.
How beautiful it has been to witness some of my favorite musicians BLOOM under the spotlight of venues like Red Rocks. How special it has been to watch the band that I once attended CU house parties with EXPAND and start to sell out larger and larger spaces like The Fillmore. For all of these reasons and so many more, my #1 event for 4/20 weekend in Colorado is OPIUO + Syzygy Orchestra/ SunSquabi at Red Rocks, on Saturday, April 21st, 2018!
The rest of the events on this list are in RANDOM ORDER and are simply my personal favorite picks for 420 events in Colorado this year. While there are TONS of other events happening all over the state for 4/20 week in CO I have hand selected those on this list to appeal to a variety of different types of art and music lovers.
The list includes a “Target Audience” that I have pre-determined based on years of experience marketing different events in the Colorado scene.
The list showcases a wide range of locations and ticket price points that should allow most Colorado 4/20 goers to find at least one event that matches both their personal style and budget.
HERE ARE MANIFESTATION MEDIA’S TOP 7 EVENT PICKS FOR 420 2018 IN COLORADO!

So happyto announce that one of my favorite artists in the world right now, Chloe, aka CloZee hits my beautiful home state of Colorado 4 TIMES NEXT MONTH! I had the lucky experience of running into CloZee at both the Sonic Bloom and ARISE Festivals last year. She generously gave me one of her “special limited edition” weirdly oversized hat pins and played some of the best live music I saw outdoors last summer. This year at Envision I was sitting in the Solo Bueno VIP lounge relaxing after a hard day at work running around the festival as an Intern when I said her name and BOOM she appeared right in front of my face almost instantly. This slightly magical experience reminded me how much more powerful we all are at Manifestation when we finally LET GO and let ourselves go into CHILL MODE. Sometimes it seems the best things happen to us when we sit back, relax, and enjoy life’s simple pleasures.
Get your tickets, grab your best friends, and immerse yourself into a soundscape unlike any other. CloZee is coming to Colorado 4 night THIS JULY. Details and a chance to win a pair of tix to either her Boulder or Denver shows below.
Feeling truly blessed and inspired after a wonderful weekend spent back home in Austin, TX visiting my family and working as staff at the 6th annual Euphoria Festival. Euphoria was a blast and I plan to do a separate blog post with highlights from my second experience at this fest. Every time I am brought back to the place of my birth I am reminded of how hard I have worked and how far I have come to build my life and career in Colorado. It seems the older I get the harder it is to take time off to visit Austin. While it is hard to be so far away from my parents and lifelong grade school friends, I do truly feel the work I am doing right now in Colorado is my SOUL PURPOSE. I enjoy the little time I do get to spend in Austin a lot more now, and always leave with a renewed sense of feeling reconnected to my “Live Music Capital of The World” roots.
Electronic Music Festivals have a certain energetic magic about them that allow me to notice and open myself to life’s mysterious synchronicities. The synchronistic reality for me – when I was 6 years old my parents split up and my dad moved into a modest “bachelor pad” on a cul-de-sac called Hummingbird Circle. The magical and majestic Humming Bird is the symbol for the Sonic Bloom Festival. Coincidence? Maybe… However, I truly believe that little things like this are life’s way of reminding you – everything happens for a reason. I live my life ON PURPOSE. Manifesting only what I karmically earn and deserve.
BEYOND STOKED to announce I have been asked to join the Social Media team for the 2017 SONIC BLOOM electronic music festival at Hummingbird Ranch in Spanish Peaks Country, COLORADO. Join me this June for live music, visionary art, and yoga magic over the Summer Solstice! Make sure to grab ur tix to UNIFY THE FIELD at the Sonic Bloom Pre-Parties April 28 & 29 at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom.
Excited to announce that Steven and I will be displaying our latest works next week in Denver at Lime Light Media’s local music and arts showcase!

I want to give a huge thanks to Amanda Wolf of Synchronistic Creations for inviting us out and for putting in the hours to make this event come to life!
