Festival goers can choose from daily workshops in yoga, spirituality and even unified field theory as well as the unprecedented musical line-up scheduled for each day of the celebration.

This year SONIC BLOOM also boasts two different soundsystems developed to nurture low frequency bass and accentuate the subtle sounds known for setting this style of music apart from other dance genres. The main stage will flaunt the famous Ambisonic surround Sound System from FunktionOne, which has won numerous international awards and has amplified such luminaries as Pink Floyd. The CoDome stage will be hosted by local dubstep promoters sub.mission and be powered by local favorite Basscouch and their 50,000 watts of powerful ‘bass to your face’and will feature a handful of local artists and a selection of DJ’s who’ve won their slot on stage through on-line voting.

For festival goers looking to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings, the new SONIC BLOOM campsite has on-site shaded camping next to Clear Creek, fire-pit areas and even river rafting expeditions offered daily through Mile Hi Rafting. The folks from the Basics Fund are also offering discounted party bus options for riders coming from Fort Collins, Boulder and Denver as a safe alternative to driving.

With so many opportunities, it’s no wonder that this year’s event is showing record ticket sales.

Who Is Timothy Dwenger

Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
