Sonic Bloom Returns to Georgetown
By Levi Macy
The premier electronic Colorado music festival, Sonic Bloom will be returning to the always sublime Shadows Ranch for its second year at the site. This marks the seventh anniversary for the festival as a whole, and in the past seven years Sonic Bloom has grown to be one of the greatest showcases of all things beautiful in the electronica music scene. It is not only a festival of music, but a celebration of spiritual bliss. Every year, they bring in both heavy hitters and rising stars for the four-day event. The result is an extended weekend of both visual and sonic stimulation all with one goal: to unify all forms of human creative expression.
For one extended weekend this summer, Shadows Ranch in Georgetown, Colorado will be the absolute epicenter of the burgeoning Colorado electronic dance music scene. On top of the world class artists that perform each night, every day is filled with the opportunity to help you get more in touch with yourself and your surroundings. You can choose from workshops in yoga, spirituality, and the unified field theory. It really is more than just your run-of-the-mill music festival. Special attention to all details are taken into account in order for everyone in attendance to find peace if only for four short days.
