The ARISE Music Festival is a quintessential Colorado music festival that perfectly encapsulates the Colorado lifestyle. Running from Friday, August 5 through Sunday, August 7, It features diverse music, camping, vendors, yoga, workshops, environmental-activist presenters and opportunities for fun and inspiration around every corner. And one of the coolest things about this "Leave No Trace" festival, they plant a tree for every ticket sold!
Located at the Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, just 45 minutes from Denver, it's a locally grown, independent event that draws nearly 7,000 people into the foothills each year. Buzzfeed calls Arise "One of the Top 7 Next-Gen Festivals in North America." We agree!
It is more like who isn't playing! The lineup is chock-full of talent, ranging from headliners like Ziggy Marley, Jurassic 5, Papadosio and Elephant Revival to featured acts like The Travelin' McCourys, Mike Love, The Bluegrass Generals and The Jeff Austin Band (from the Yonder Mountain String Band...), just to name just a few. In total, over 30 headliner and featured acts are backed up with dozens and dozens of local and regional acts. In all, attendees will soak in over 200 performances on 7 stages over three days.
One of the most beautiful festivals in the world!
The festival grounds cover over 100 acres of gorgeous Colorado mountain valley acres, and includes multiple stages, an Organic Farmers Market, the "Way to Grow" General Store, and even offer campers artisan showers to stay clean in style!
ARISE stands for Activate/ Reconnect/Interact/Synchronize/Empower. The goal of ARISE is to do just that, through yoga intensives, art installations, interactive workshops, a mini documentary film festival, and – most importantly – music. Over the years, the festival has cultivated a one-of-a-kind experience designed for both veterans of the event and adventurous families looking to spice up their summer camping trip.
