Groove Music and Arts Fest takes over Shadows Ranch: Festival Review
Covered in glitter by: Abby Benjamin The uniqueness of each festival experience never ceases to amaze me.  No matter how many festivals you have under your cute fairy utility belt, each one still has its own flavor, personality, and bundle of memorable conversations and experiences. Shadows Ranch is one of my favorite festival venues.  It’s comparable in feel to Horning’s Hideout outside of Portland, OR and Spirit of the Suwannee near Jacksonville, FL.  However, Shadows Ranch provides a much smaller and more intimate experience.  The campground is nestled in Georgetown, CO, 45 minutes outside of Denver.  Its lush green forest...
Sonic Bloom Takes Over American Safari Ranch: Festival Review

Festival Inception: Arise 2013
ARISE is somewhere you’ll most definitely want to be next year as it shined bright, last month, through its inception.  From the organizers to the audience bred happiness and everyone was super stoked to be at a brand new Colorado-festival. The music was superb, with an eclectic combination of both live band and electronic music. Aside from the juicy sound vibrations, the festival offered so much more! There was art, yoga, multimedia presentations, motivational speakers, meditation, Darly Hannah. Through the exposure of these mediums, one can truly ARISE within themselves through the transformational experience. When I arrived, I found my way straight...
