Summer Solstice occurs when the sun is at the highest point in the sky, making it the longest day of the year. The extra sunlight has been celebrated throughout history with a variety of rituals involving dance, music and fire. Sonic Bloom encompasses those rituals into its existence as the nation’s premier summer solstice electronic festival, taking place June 19-22 at American Safari Ranch in South Park, Colorado.
The lineup of Sonic Bloom 2014 is absolutely packed with euphonic treats, as names on the bill represent a vast array of talent from all ends of the electronic spectrum. To spotlight only a few out of an extended list, the lineup includes: psychedelic bass prince Tipper (making a two-set comeback after last year’s open heart surgery!), the planet’s funkiest diplomat The Polish Ambassador, electric shaman Random Rab ,as well as the innovative and lucid Benji Vaughan (Younger Brother DJ set).
In addition to showcasing some of the best electronic music in the nation, the festival offers onsite camping, revitalizing yoga, stimulating workshops, and aesthetic art installations. Keep your ears open and eyes peeled for more information on workshops, installations and further surprises; the masterminds behind Sonic Bloom definitely have some more tricks up their sleeves.
The festivals’ new and improved location of American Safari Ranch is destined to create an epic sonic blast off this summer solstice with its majestic view of the continental divide and panoramic mountain backdrop. Sonic Bloom has been unifying electrifying musicians, visionary artists, and inspiring yogis to create a sensationally integrative experience since its inception in 2006, and this new location is set to bring the experience to the next level.
If you can make it out to Colorado this summer solstice, don’t miss the opportunity to celebrate extra light the proper way at Sonic Bloom for an entire day of transformational fun, that goes throughout the night. We hope to see you at American Safari Ranch June 19-22.
