Event Details

Sonic Bloom is a 3-day camping festival that will bring electronic music, dance, art and human performance together in an atmosphere that inspires open channels of creativity for everyone involved, but most especially the audience...

With a river running right through the festival grounds, the new site is filled with flat, shaded riverside tree camping AND with parking ON SITE.  (limited car camping & RV spots may also be available). NO MORE SHUTTLES!

You can look forward to many more musical artists this year on 2 stages in a most incredible mountain setting, as Sonic Bloom now comes complete with multiple fire-pits, a pond, chill zones, art installations, workshops, vending, yoga, performances and a next-level sound and light show experience.

On our new site where camping and both stages are just a short walk apart from each other, we will have the ability to create a resonant field in which to unify all forms of human creative expression.

Come participate along with some of the highest quality live electronic artists and among the most cutting-edge producers to co-create what is an incredibly intimate boutique festival experience... the unified field that is Sonic Bloom.
