Sonic Bloom is one of the greatest events that happens every year. I’ve attended a handful of times now and can say that statement with complete confidence.
This year I’ve scaled back on all the events that I could attend due to a new focus on my career. Last year I attended over 10 festivals and only making it to around 5 this year. Out of all the festivals that I attended last year, there are two wrist bands still on: Sonic Blooms and Symbiosis.
What sets Sonic Bloom apart from all the festivals is its location. Colorado is one of most beautiful states I’ve ever visited. It has everything a person like myself could want: mountains, water (rivers), epic trails, talented producers, legalization, active community, and affordable!
If it weren’t for my the recent job I recently acquired, I would have moved to Colorado. Sonic Bloom encompasses all the allure of Colorado in one giant event. It’s the time of year where the music community comes together in the central state of the US.
This years line up is one of the most impressive ones the year. The one thing that I have to address is the fact that the local talent that is located in Colorado is world class. If there was a mecca for bass music or any variation of it right now, it would be Colorado. If it wasn’t already so enticing to visit, they recently legalized herb.
Georgetown is outside of the Denver/Boulder area but the drive into the small town always leaves me breathless. The actual location of the venue is absolutely stunning if you’ve never been. The venue is divided into two areas separated by a river running in-between. There are two bridges that connect them and always leave you in awe as you see the water flowing. It is worth noting that this year they will be offering white water rafting! There will also be tons of yoga workshops as well as numerous talks and vendors.
If you were still debating on attending this year, I personally highly recommend it. There aren’t many gathers of this nature that happen every year. It’s one of the most well organized events I’ve ever attended. Just be sure to bring a smile and be ready to dance till sunrise!
I hope that I’ll see many of you out there. Be sure to say hello if you see me!
