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.

>>> RESERVE A LOCKER HERE <<<

#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)

#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

#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.

HERE IS THE DESCRIPTION ON THE EVENT PAGE: 
Redefining the possibilities of modern music, The Russ Liquid Test fuses the raw vitality of classic funk and the inventive sound design of the electronic production. Songwriter/producer and renowned brass specialist Russell Scott heads up the New Orleans-based band. Guitarist Andrew Block and drummer Deven Trusclair round things out, with each providing a distinct musical background deeply rooted in the New Orleans jazz scene. Their debut EP 1984 featured an eclectic array of guest collaborators such as Mr. Lif and Ivan Neville—successfully creating an auditory canvas to forge The Russ Liquid Test’s irresistibly soulful future-vintage stylings.

A kinetic energy infuses each track on 1984. Giving way to a mixture of funk/jazz/electro, The Russ Liquid Test evokes a kaleidoscope of textures, senses, and moods. Featuring Ivan Neville on keyboards and the Funky Meters’ Russell Batiste Jr. on drums, the effervescent and synth-heavy title track “speaks about the current state of America from the perspective of an outsider,” as described by Scott. Lead single “Honesty,” meanwhile, finds The Russ Liquid Test slipping into a woozy psychedelia, offset by a brilliantly structured dichotomy introduced in its second-line-inspired groove.

At the heart of The Russ Liquid Test is an improv-driven musicality that began with Scott’s taking up classical piano. After spending several years playing in a jazz quintet on cruise ships and touring with psychedelic ska band Uprite Dub Orchestra, his one-of-a-kind artistry was unveiled in the genre-busting musical performance group MarchFourth Marching Band. Capable of playing the trumpet and saxophone, Scott quickly began experimenting with electronic music, eventually adopting the moniker of Russ Liquid. As his full-length debut, 2013’s Foreign Frequency showcased a forward-thinking mentality and fearless vision, anchored by an incomparable knowledge of music as a whole. “I wanted new colors to paint with,” says Scott of his foray into electronic music. “I kind of look at the electronic world as this whole other color palette, compared to the traditional sounds we’ve been working with for the past however many years.”

While on tour with Gramatik in 2014, Scott crossed paths with Block and discovered the duo’s shared musical tastes and philosophies. A South Florida native, Block grew playing guitar in his local Pentecostal church. “I wasn’t religious, I just wanted to play at that church because the music there was amazing,” says Block. He later relocated to New Orleans, pursuing his dream of becoming a full-time musician. The guitarist’s legendary endeavors reached fellow purveyors of soul/funk/R&B, ranging from Pretty Lights to New Orleans icon Dr. John. Capable of collaborating and working as a solo artist without missing a beat, Block released his 2014 debut You Can Only Go Up From Here on Gramatik’s independent label Lowtemp.

In the making of 1984, The Russ Liquid Test compounded their potent chemistry by bringing in a lineup of equally impassioned musicians. “Coming from a background of playing in bands and then getting into electronic music, I’d really missed having that interaction with other musicians,” says Scott. “The most rewarding thing for me is being able to bounce ideas off other people, so that the music ends up having more than just one person’s vibe to it. Ultimately it lets you give the audience even more to connect with.”

The studio workhorses have already begun working on a sophomore EP. The Russ Liquid Test also presents a joyful sense of synergy in their high-powered live shows, with recent appearances including Shambhala Music Festival, Lightning in a Bottle, Summer Camp, and Sonic Bloom, among others. No matter the setting, a clear multidimensionality can always be heard in The Russ Liquid Test’s projects. “We want to make people feel good but also give them something to reflect with,” says Scott. “It’s not about just making party music or music that’s more introspective—it’s for the full gamut of human expression, and we want it to be just as dynamic as life itself.”

EVENT SPOTLIGHT & TICKET GIVEAWAY: Purple Couch All Stars ft. Gladkill, PRSN, Cualli, & more 11/30 at The Black Box in Denver!

The only thing constant in life is CHANGE. Sometimes change comes easily and sometimes it comes in a series of somewhat challenging transformations that are presented in our lives in order to help us GROW. We are faced with choices every day that ask us to take risks that sometimes have unpredictable outcomes. My mom told me when I was young, “If you get invited to a party and have no reason not to go then GO. Because you never know who you might meet or what that might lead too”.

I was invited to some of Jason Burruss’s private gatherings at his old home in Evergreen, CO and although I did not know Jason well before, I am really thankful that I had the courage to attend these parties anyway. I was nervous about going to a party where I didn’t know the main host at first (I was invited by a mutual friend), but I did end up knowing some of the people at these events and the people I didn’t know and ended up meeting there, Jason Burrus included, without a doubt CHANGED MY LIFE. Brought together by FATE & PURPLE CRYSTAL MAGIC, the relationships I developed and the influence of the people I met at the very first “Purple Couch” parties helped me recognize the CHANGES I needed to make in myself to live my DREAMS and jumpstart my career. For this, I would like to say today that I am humbled and SO GRATEFUL

It has been beautiful to watch both The Black Box and the Purple Couch crew evolve and blossom into what they are now. The level of professionalism and light & sound production value these crews bring to everything they do is really special and something to experience for yourself. I invite you to come join me in experiencing the next chapter of Purple Couch Denver events. A dual room Purple Couch curated bass music event at  The Black Box coming up Nov 30th.

We are just 1 week away from one of my favorite parties of the year! Join the Sonic Bloom Festival Community for a two-night fall indoor mini-festival happening Friday, November 3rd in Fort Collins at The Aggie and Saturday, November 4th at Cervantes in Denver. The lineup for this year’s #SONICBLOSSOM is absolutely stellar featuring acts from all over the world. Make sure to peek the Facebook event pages linked below and preview music by the artist via the Soundcloud links below.

THE SONIC BLOOM COMMUNITY STORY: In June of 2013, I discovered the SONIC BLOOM Festival. From the very moment I got to the festivals old home in Georgetown, CO “Shadows Ranch” I started to feel a shift. At the time I wasn’t sure what I was experiencing, but now I am sure that this sensation was my entering “The Unified Field” the feeling of unity and heart-centered connectedness with souls of like minds. Ever since SONIC BLOOM 2013, my life has continued to change and evolve for the better. I have purged a lot of the archaic ways of thinking and doing things and made space in my life and in my heart for what I believe is one of my “Soul Purposes”. After Sonic Bloom 2013 I created the Sonic Bloom Festival Community group on Facebook for connecting what I thought would be the few friends that I had made at the festival that year. Four years later, the group of 30 has grown to 5976 members and more bloomers are being added all the time. I may not have known it then, but by creating a place for community online and continuing to pursue my passion of connecting people online I ultimately “manifested” the job of Social Media Strategist and Community Manager for the SONIC BLOOM music festival. Now I enjoy sharing the beauty of SONIC BLOOM and it’s new home Hummingbird Ranch with the community almost every day of my life. It truly is one of the best things about my life and I want to take this moment to express my gratitude for this opportunity and role in the community. I would also like to INVITE YOU ALL TO JOIN THE GROUP HERE –>  Sonic Bloom Festival Community!

THANK YOU, BLOOM FAMILY! I LOVE YOU AND I HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE SHOWS!

Manifestation Media’s TOP 7 Bass Music Picks for Halloween 2017 in Colorado!

MANIFEST YOUR NEXT MEDIA REVOLUTION (3).png

Calling all Deep, Dark, and Dangerous Yogi’s and Wildstyle Witches in Colorado. Halloween week is upon us! With so many options it can be hard to decide…WHAT TO GO TO?

To help you pick your poison I have narrowed it down a little for you. This event lineup was specially curated for BASS MUSIC LOVERS.  We looked to balance a mix of shows in both Boulder & Denver. We selected these shows based on the expectation of the show featuring both amazing sound quality and that freaky-fun dance party vibe that has put Colorado on the map as the “BASS MUSIC CAPITAL OF THE WORLD”.

Keeping it to just 7 shows was extremely difficult as there are many other events happening that are noteworthy in the area for the entire month of October. To view our full lineup for the rest of the month of October check out our events listing on Facebook HERE.

*SHOWS ARE LISTED IN ORDER BY DATE OF SHOW FROM TUES 10/24 THRU TUES 10/31

*FOR THE FINER EVENT DETAILS LIKE DOOR TIMES, AGE LIMITS, & MORE CLICK RSVP ON FACEBOOK AND VIEW THE EVENT PAGE DESCRIPTIONS. THESE ARE FREQUENTLY UPDATED AS WE GET CLOSER TO THE DATE OF THE SHOW.

*FOR TICKET PRICES & TO BUY A TICKET CLICK LINK DIRECTLY BELOW EACH SHOW LISTED.

*We highly recommend getting to these shows EARLY and purchasing your tix in advance as Halloween shows historically SELL OUT.

HERE are Manifestation Media’s TOP 7 BASS MUSIC PICKS FOR HALLOWEEN 2017 IN COLORADO!

Manifestation Media’s SHOW OF THE WEEK: Tonight! The Orcastrator w/ Guests at The Bluebird Theater in Denver + Throwback Personal Story & Underground Video Feature

22135634_708124526054159_7192542232615766387_o

Manifestation Media‘s #SHOWoftheweek is TONIGHT with The Orcastrator & friends!!! Tickets are available online at AXS.com and at the door.

Here is my Thursday Throwback to last January for #xtractgames in #Aspen! I dug this one up from the iphone archive and shared on Instagram today because these two, The Orcastrator & Alex Bowman,  have a BIG SHOW tonight at The Bluebird Theater!

They have been doing absolutely amazing things since I took this video and I am excited to watch them continue to grow in competitive yet nurturing Colorado music scene.

>> CLICK TO VIEW FEATURED THROWBACK VIDEO<<<

 

Here is a little story for you: I took a HUGE RISK in my business and got involved with a few people I hardly knew to “orchestrate” a private house party for the Cannabis Connoisseurs Collation a group of Colorado weed and hash experts that throw private events all over the state. I was mostly interested in their event because I had purchased a ticket to #Bassnectar at the #XgamesAspen the same weekend.

I had the money when the tickets went on sale & because I am a music lover and I had never been to Aspen I decided this might be a good time to check it out. I purchased a ticket the day they went on sale and decided I would figure out the travel details later. I had no idea how hard it would be to get a great place to stay in Aspen during this big local event.

THE LESSON: Producing this event taught me so much, but the key to my survival & ultimate success was to go with the FLOW! 🐳😎🍍 

Things did not go anything close to as planned from the get-go which made it hard for me to relax,  but the good vibes from the people around me and positive feedback I received from most lead me to feel like it was a success. I got to meet some amazing people in the community and score this OG underground (literally we are in a basement) footage of some of Colorado’s most uprising talent . AND, as DEVINE timing had it the money I made working and producing this event helped me finally get my passport & purchase a ticket to #costarica🇨🇷 the sacred place of my ancestors.

ROOT DOWN in the KNOWING that all is FLOWING to you. Hope to see you at the show tonight!  🐳🐳
