Location: Winter Park, CO
Returning to Colorado’s high country for the third consecutive year, the Sonic Bloom festival brings together musicians, artists, and like-minded freaky people from all parts of the country for three days of neo-hippie bliss.
With roots in the bourgeoning electronic movement, the music at Sonic Bloom focuses on break beat dance grooves and polyrhythmic DJ styles.
The large number of participating musicians makes fertile ground for cross-pollination, and attendees can look forward to a set by the Sonic Bloom Rebel Alliance Orchestra, featuring Steve Kimock and members of Zilla, the String Cheese Incident, EOTO, Heavyweight Dub Champion, and the Glitch Mob.
This year sees Sonic Bloom making a venue change and will be held in Winter Park, as opposed to last year’s spot at Red Feather Lakes.
