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 

SB18-Talent-Meme-SBO

 

#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

SB18-Talent-Meme-Vibesquad (1)

 

#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.

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!

-BRIELLE BATAILLE aka GlassyMermaid

CLOZEE HARMONY TOUR TO HIT COLORADO NEXT MONTH!

So happy to 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.

7 MUSICAL ACTS TO SEE AT SONIC BLOOM 2017!

Happy Thursday!

We are officially 7 days out from when the music begins at this year’s 12th annual Sonic Bloom Festival!! I am crazy busy right now but feeling oh so blessed and honored to have been asked to help promote this fabulous fun summer event over the last several months. I wanted to share the updated FULL ART LINEUPS + MUSIC SCHEDULE just released this week + share with you all my top 7 musical picks for this year’s festival.

18920984_10154679232772253_7101452120978645255_o

 

I have always had a hard time with festivals like SONIC BLOOM as the lineups are always ABSOLUTELY STACKED WITH AMAZING TALENT FROM AROUND THE WORLD and it seems nearly to impossible to actually see everything. So this year following my inner voice after continuing to see a lot more of those lucky 777’s I mentioned in my prior post “The 7 Lucky Things I learned as an Envision 2017 Intern” I have narrowed it down to ANOTHER LUCKY 7. This is a simple and NON-CONFLICTING list of sets that I hope will provide attendees a well-rounded taste of the SONIC BLOOM festival experience as the acts booked for this year’s fest span across a wide range of genres and styles. While I do believe that “genres” are close to obsolete in this style of music environment I also feel that each artist does have a special gift for creating a certain type of musical environment that is different and generally is characterized by certain types of rhythms and sounds, samples used, and particularly specific fan bases.

1. MIKEY LION 

GENRE: TECHNO-HOUSE-LOVE 

SET TIME: SUNDAY 12:30AM-2AM

STAGE: BLOOM

With musical roots in the oldskool sounds of Daft Punk & Wu-Tang Clan, THE BOSS MAN at DesertHearts Records is sure to impress the masses late night on Sunday with some PURE TECHNO HOUSE LOVE fused with strong tribal, hip-hop, and psychedelic elements. “Part mythical desert harlequin, part modern soul conductor, Mikey Lion is more than a DJ––He’s a freak of nature and a controller of energy” (soundcloud). As a child with a mother from San Diego who has many fond memories of dancing and playing on the beaches there, I am so stoked to check out this The San Diego-native as he has earned a real name for himself as the center of the Desert Hearts movement. Cheers to all those who can PACE THEMSELVES enough to make it to his set Sunday and DANCE FROM THE HEART like it was the first set of the weekend. #DANCEFROMTHEHEART

2. Maddy O’Neal

GENRE: ELECTRO-HIP-HOP-SOUL

SET TIME: SATURDAY JUNE 17th – 7:45-9PM 

STAGE: Hummingbird 

A Colorado local and former member of duo Krooked Drivers, Maddy O’Neal is a woman on the verge. She just started a brand new chapter of her musical life with the debut of her new self-titled project ‘Maddy O’Neal.’ I resonate with her because I know what it is like to BREAK FREE from the limitations of past projects and step out on my own as a female in the music industry. For the first time in her career, she has full creative control which is HUGE. I see Maddy as a shining light of positive energy and a leader in the male-dominated live electronic genre. Maddy’s rock n’ roll roots and growing appetite for old-school hip-hop, high-quality remix’s, and sunny personality give her a versatility that sets her apart from most other artists in the scene. #BOSSLADY

3. RANDOM RAB 

GENRE: RANDOM-RAB

SET TIME: 7:15-8:45PM 

STAGE: BLOOM 

A few years ago I rang in 2015 with Random Rab at a super small Arcade/Bar in Downtown Denver that no longer exist as an event venue anymore The 1UP. This Random Rab set stands out to me as a really special performance from Rab for several reasons. For one, it was not a sunrise set outside, secondly, Andrelien, Love & Light, and Templo opened and absolutely HYPED the crowd way more than I can reasonably get for anything at 5:45 AM. At this very random and very packed NYE show, Rab showed me his true power as a performer and producer by showing me his true voice and keeping the energy up showcasing another side of himself and his music in a way I had not seen before. While I will always remember each of the amazing sunrise sets I have had the privilege of seeing him play, I can’t forget how magical that night was. I LOVED the high-energy vibe of the crowd as we danced to a much more upbeat style of Rab’s music. This year I look forward to seeing what he has in store knowing that his set will be right around sunset instead of sunrise. I think it is amazing when an artist can break out of what fans begin to expect as their “normal”. Why? because none of the people I know that go to SONIC BLOOM are anything close to normal. We love being random and learn to accept this aspect of ourselves a little more each day that goes by.  #KeepItRandom

4. SPACE JESUS 

GENRE: SPACE-BASS

SET TIME: SATURDAY JUNE 17th – 8:45-10:15PM 

STAGE:  BLOOM 

Calling all Martians and Cosmic Mermaids that love to get down to SPACE BASS! Space Jesus has quickly become one of my favorite electronic music producers. Space Jesus aka Jasha Tull is based in Brooklyn, NY with firm roots in hip-hop. His unique and futuristic bass sounds and high energy beat drops make it almost impossible to not get the F down during his crazy hyped sets. He totally melted the faces of the already melted crowd the last time I saw him at Bamboo Bass Festival in Jaco, Costa Rica and I am really excited to see what he brings to this year’s Bloom. #SPACEBASS

5. BARCLAY CRENSHAW AKA Claude VonStroke

GENRE: METAPHYSICAL SLOW JAMS-HIP-HOP

SET TIME: FRIDAY JUNE 16th 9:15-10:15 PM 

STAGE: HUMMINGBIRD 

YOU ARE IN MY SYSTEM. That new album is my jam. THIS JUST MIGHT BE THE MUST SEE SET OF THE WEEKEND FOR ME! “Metaphysical Slow Jams”? Say what? I just gotta see this to believe I fully understand what that REALLY means…#METAPHYSICAL

 

6. I.LL GATES 

GENRE: ILL-TYPE-MOVES

SET TIME: FRIDAY JUNE 16th 9:15-10:15 PM 

STAGE: HUMMINGBIRD 

Something about his style just always seems to meet me where I am. His recent set with live drummer Kj Sawka at Bamboo Bass Festival was absolutely one of my favorite live improvised sets EVER at a festival. It is safe to say he is the real fucking deal when it comes to both live performance and technical knowledge. He is best known as a  “bass droppin’, educatin’, oscillator modulatin’ space genius from the future.”

“DJing since age 13 ill.Gates has had a long and lavish career in the music business. Known for his epic collaborations with Bassnectar, Beats Antique, Datsik, Mimosa and Opiuo he is no stranger to the top of the charts. With 4 studio albums under his belt and hoards of unreleased original music ill.GATES is known for unforgettable live sets peppered with improvised finger drumming and original visuals.” #ILLTYPEMOVES

6. THE BIG GIGANTIC CHEESE BISCUITS

GENRE: SUPERGROUP 

SET TIME: SUNDAY 10:45-12:45

NO SOUNDCLOUD preview on this one people. This is the real deal. A completely original performance by a brand new never before seen supergroup. #ONCEINALIFETIME

A unique lineup never before assembled featuring members of 3 pioneering live electronic bands coming together for a one-time very special set of music: Dominic Lalli, Jeremy Salken (Big Gigantic), Michael Kang, Michael Travis, Jason Hann (The String Cheese Incident / EOTO), Marc Brownstein & Aron Magner (The Disco Biscuits).

SO MUCH LOVE TO ALL OF THESE & ALL OF THE OTHER TALENTED & WONDERFUL PERFORMERS COMING TO THIS YEAR’S BLOOM!

SURE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT HUMMINGBIRD RANCH NEXT WEEK!

Happy First Friday in May to all my magical mermaids and manifestors near and far! I am very excited to share with you this week’s #ARTISTofTHEWEEK – DEREK CARPENTER aka ART OF ONE! Derek and I met years ago when we were both just starting our careers in the Colorado festival/art scene. I remember the day we met at Boulder Vapor House (BVH) like it was yesterday. At the time I was working as a Social Media Strategist & Event Production Assistant for  BVH. I helped coordinate live painters for the very first “Hill Block Party” and he was one of them (see pic below). It is truly amazing to think about how much we both have advanced in our professional careers since the day we met. I feel we are both living testament to what a little hard work and focus can bring to your career. I am so proud to call him one of my friends for life. He has supported my vision for my Manifestation Media class series by attending my recent class at Bodywork Bistro on Instagram Management. Today I return the community love by showcasing a few of his latest works below and offering my fans a discount code for 20% OFF ALL ORDERS FOR THE NEXT MONTH on his new website store: www.artofone.org.

4/13/17

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.

Sonic Bloom Festival 2014

Initial-Lineup-Sonic-Bloom-2014

Hey friends!

Remember that awesome festival I posted photos from early last summer? Well…Sonic Bloom IS BACK! And this year at an all new venue called the American Safari Ranch in South Park, CO! This new location is 75 mins from Denver and 90 mins from Boulder. The new venue looks awesome and features some incredible new perks like a car camping option, on site lodging packages, views of the continental divide, 360 panoramic mountain views, an indoor saloon with bar, games and DJ booth! As always the lineup is STACKED with some of the best electronic music producers in the game right now. The Road to Sonic Bloom festival tour is well under way with several remaining dates including the two I will be attending happening May 2nd & 3rd at Cervantes in Denver, CO.

What is really great about this event is that there are so many ways to get involved if you are interested in doing more than just attending. This year I am happy to announce that I am part of the Sonic Bloom festival street team! What this means is that I will be working hard to make sure that people from near and far know all about the festival. I will do this by handing out fliers and promoting on social media with a special emphasis on the awesome new location! I got this job by reaching out months in advance and requesting this position on the team. After meeting so many wonderful people at last years Sonic Bloom including my current boyfriend, and overall having one of the best weekends of my life, I am thrilled to promote Sonic Bloom Festival 2014. I hope to share with many how much this event changed my life. Most of all I hope to see everyone I know at Sonic Bloom 2014!
