For fans jonesing for the SONIC BLOOM aesthetic as the weather turns cold, the organizers of the boutique electronic music festival take that same spirit, and channel it into an indoor, two-day festival at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom & The Other Side for a jam-packed double dose of incredible tunes and transformational education.
SONIC BLOSSOM features Bluetech, Russ Liquid, two nights of Dopapod, Plantrae, ESKMO, Janover & reSunator, and plenty of acts you know and love (and some you might be discovering for the first time).
Drumspyder has long been a fixture of the psychedelic bass world, but will be making his debut with the SONIC crew on Friday, October 10th. Also making a splash in the scene from the jam and reggae world is popular midwest outfit Jon Wayne and the Pain.
Bluetech returns to SONIC BLOSSOM once again on Saturday, October 11th. Joining him will be popular live act TAUK, who has been making the rounds for years now, grinding out a loyal following from ceasless touring and endless jamming. The tight four-piece brings the jam aesthetic to the event, which has always prided itself on bringing together disparate musical elements for a potpourri of ecletic delight.
As always, art, education, spirituality, and healing will be as much a focus of the two-day festival, as its always been, inviting a number of live painters and vendors to share their talents and wares.
And this year, a third night has been added to the festivities the following week, as SONIC BLOOM founders ZILLA return to Cervantes on Friday, October 17th, along with VibeSquad, Dubvirus, and Djedi. The improv trio with Michael Travis on drums, Jamie Janover on hammered dulcimer, and Aaron Holstein on guitar, bass, and production has made a huge comeback this year with eye-popping festival sets at Rootwire and Infrasound.
You can purchase two-day passes to the event, or even single day passes. Make sure to also snag yourself a ticket for ZILLA on the 17th. There is nothing quite like a SONIC BLOSSOM party, so make sure if you're in the Denver area, you're headed down to Cervantes with the rest of your SONIC BLOOM family.
