Sonic Bloom-ing – A Sonic Preview
Summer festival season is creeping up on us, and Colorado is buzzing about Sonic Bloom. This year’s lineup is fully stocked with some of the biggest electronic names out there as well as the quintessential Colorado-based bands and DJs that we are always stoked to see together on that mountain stage. Some of the artists I’m most excited to see this summer include: Tipper, Ott, Emancipator, Random Rab, ill-esha, Phutureprimitive, Jantsen, and Thriftworks. Granted, these are only a handful of the 33 artists already announced and with more to be announced in the near future, Colorado is guaranteed to host one of the most electronically charged festivals this summer.
Annual Bloom attendee, Eric Youngstrom says he is excited to return to Shadows Ranch this summer for “the people, the atmosphere, the producers, and performers – all amazing.” The festival, normally three days, has added an Early-Bloomer ticket for those who can’t wait and want to arrive Thursday night. “I’m very stoked that they added an extra day for everyone to get there early, set up camp and begin their amazing weekend.”
Electronic music has begun incorporating stimuli for more than just the obvious sense. Sonic Bloom: The Unified Field also incorporates some of the most talented preforming and visual artists into the weekend for the full audio/visual experience. Although those artists names are currently unreleased, you can look forward to fire spinners, hula-hoopers, live painters, dancers and some more of the most creative release of expression that ties the whole beat-magic experience of the electronic scene together.
To keep the buzz going about the festival, events are held throughout the year – such as Sonic Blossom – that feature artists and performers from the festival for a night of electronic madness. The next event before Bloom is The Unified Field: A Sonic Bloom Pre-Party Featuring Alex and Allyson Grey on April 27 & 28. This 2-day event held at Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver is said to feature beats from Bluetech, Octopus Nebula, GRiZ, Janover, The Malah, Ill Mannered, and more, as well as presentations both nights by the Greys. This is surely an event to be remembered.
Expect big things from this Rocky Mountain festival this summer and keep listening for more lineup announcements that are guaranteed to impress. All throughout the Denver music scene, people are talking – the buzz is all about Sonic Bloom.
Sonic Bloom is held at Shadows Ranch in Georgetown, CO on June 21-24 2012.
