When it come to all things independent and intimate, the folks at Sonic Bloom continually deliver. Year after year, the Colorado-based transformational gathering manages to conjure up uniquely curated musical line-ups for its boutique atmosphere at Hummingbird Ranch.
For their 2019 affair, held June 20-24, the festival’s initial line-up offerings include an eclectic array of genre-defying live acts across the jamtronica, deep house, psytrance, and bass music scenes — with established veterans in Gramatik, Opiuo, and Emancipator Ensemble sitting atop the bill, alongside some new and exciting rising talent.
Bass music is well represented on phase one with Yheti, The Widdler, The Librarian, two Gravitas favorites in Off The Trees and Edamame, and Vancouver-based experimentalist Tor. Additional acts include the live bass and jam infused three-piece act of Russ Liquid, Deep house aficionado Mark Farina, psytrance act Merkaba, Colorado’s very own Vibesquad, and newcomer Homemade Spaceship.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Sonic Bloom without at least one featured infused act. This year sees The New Observatory, the collaborative brainchild of Michael Travis and Jason Hann of The String Incident and The New Deal‘s Jamie Shields.
Fans can expect a phase two line-up to follow with a whole cast of cutting-edge bass music artists, truly showing the depth and breadth of Sonic Bloom’s curating abilities.
Discounted Super-Early-Bloomer tickets are available now.
