Like it could get any better. Following a sold out performance at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre for the live band's US debut, we're thrilled to announce today Simon Posford will be performing a Shpongle DJ set at SONIC BLOOM, taking place June 19-22 in South Park, CO.
Posford will be joining fellow UK producer Tipper, spring tour mates Desert Dwellers, festival originators ZILLA, and a who's-who cavalcade of the best in underground dance music for the festival's first year at American Safari Ranch. Expanding its capacity beyond its prior year 3000 max, the blowout event is expected to grow mightily on the backs of a huge roster of artists.
With the impending Red Rocks date, Posford's appearance on the festival was kept a secret, with much speculation about the "Secret Headliner TBA." Now the full lineup has been released, any fans left wondering whether or not they'd be jumping on tickets have certainly made their decisions by now.
Other UNTZ faves making the journey up the mountain this year include EOTO, The Polish Ambassador, OPIUO, Random Rab, Ott, Kalya Scintilla ft Eve Olution, Kaminanda, Mr. Bill, Plantrae, Birds of Paradise, Fort Knox Five, SunSquabi, and too many to mention.
Michal Menert is debuting his Big Band, which will feature full backing support from Snug Harbor (with some sick horn action). The PLM showcase is rounded out by Break Science, SuperVision, and Paul Basic.
David Sugalski is bringing along Ayla Nereo and SaQi for full-on Jumpsuit Records crew throwdown featuring a special Wildlight performance, as well.
The real highlight of the lineup includes news about the Sonic Bloom Orchestra, and its special musical members. With a core featuring members of EOTO, Break Science, and ZILLA, along with Dirtwire, Kaminanda, and SaQi, the special guests sitting in, we can assure you, will blow your mind.
The greatest thing in festival hygiene is also making an appearance. The Oasis, which will feature 12 hand-made cedar shower stalls, 2 dressing rooms, and a 3-sink grooming station, will also feature the All One Ark, powered by Dr. Bronner's. Get blasted with foam, rinse off, and get clean in no time.
Audiophiles can rejoice at the largest outdoor Funktion-1 sound system Colorado has ever witnessed. A stat that never fails to impress. And don't forget about Silent Frisco's silent disco, featuring Motion Potion and Mancub.
Make your way to sonicbloomfestival.com to grab tickets to this unforgettable event that is sure to be one of the top highlights of a packed festival season. And check out the new stoker video below, with an original soundtrack from Tipper!
