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.

#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.

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

SB18-Talent-Meme-Yaima

 

#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. Jon is one of my favorite people in Colorado and he has helped me discover my passion and find my path. BIG LOVE JON!

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.

Higher Society New Years Eve at City Hall in Denver with Alex & Allyson Grey!

15675642_804277973056597_7729432406827154450_o

As I reflect on the past year, A LOT of emotions ARISE! While I would say 2016 has turned out to be one of the most spiritually educational years of my life, it has also been the most challenging and devastating. I started this year off ALONE in Portland, OR  INSPIRING TRUTH at Beloved Festival’s NYE event held at the stunning Portland art museum. A month and 6 days later (2/6/16)…My beautiful mountain studio home burned down along with 99% of my beloved belongings.

Against my first instinct to give up, run away, and hide from the truth, instead I AROSE! Like a phoenix from the ashes, I stood and faced with as much courage as I could possibly find, the challenge of continuing my job as the ARISE Music Festival Office Manager. Ultimately, I contributed all that I had to the promotion and production of the INSANELY SUCCESSFUL 4th year of the festival. Success taste sweet. Yet life in general would be more accurately compared to the Sour-Tsunami from Native Roots I just took a fat rip of. A little sweet, a little sour, and an insanely wild fun ride.

So now good people, without further ado – I invite you to come ring in a new year, a new dawn, a new love. My high hope is that you will come celebrate and bring THE HIGHEST AND MOST LOVE FILLED VERSION OF YOURSELF! One that is INSPIRED BY TRUTH. One that has ARISEN from the ashes to a new level of courage, strength, and stature. One that is ready and willing to face 2017 with the highest level of self-love and self-respect possible.

Join myself and Colorado’s HIGHEST SOCIETY at Denver’s City Hall Saturday December 31st to close out 2016 and ring-in the new year at the HIGHEST POSSIBLE LOVE FREQUENCY.

2017 I AM READY FOR YOU.
