A Preview for ARISE Music Festival Loveland, CO August 8th-10th, 2014 Written by Matthew Cocinero I can barely contain the bubbling energy inside me! It’s a side effect of the recent realization that I will soon be returning to the beautiful Colorado landscape for another incredible and refreshing co-created event.  For the second year, Arise Music Festival will be returning to Sunrise Ranch, which is nestled in the stunning foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Loveland, CO.

Light the Fuse: Electric Forest 2014
Light the Fuse: a Review of Electric Forest 2014 June 26-29, 2014 Rothbury, MI Written by Alex Kratzert “Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.” ― Hunter S.

Sonic Bloom 2014 was one for the books. Our brothers and our sisters of this amazing community came with open arms and a new respect for the new location at American Safari Ranch. Celebrating its 9th year in Colorado, Sonic Bloom took this new venue by storm and showed us all what this gorgeous state has to offer. It was a drastic change from what most of us were used to but a good, refreshing change none-the-less. The lovely trees and flowing river will be missed by anyone who attended the festival when it was at Shadow’s Ranch in Georgetown,...
