Sonic Bloom postpones another year, sets sight on summer solstice 2022
Festival-goers have been watching, waiting, and hoping for the conditions of the ongoing pandemic to improve to the point where it would be safe to travel back to their coveted places of worship. At the same time, it’s been interesting to watch and observe the festivals that are choosing to move forward and those that are making the devastating call to wait. Many festival organizers need to be certain that they can hold a safe event and they need that confidence many, many months in advance to properly produce a festival.
“Unfortunately, we still do not have that certainty,” said the folks behind Colorado’s Sonic Bloom. The festival that has graced the foothills of Loveland for almost the past decade made the tough decision not to return for their Summer Solstice weekend gathering.
“We considered many possibilities, including trying to move the festival to later in 2021, however, with conditions continuously changing, it’s not fair to our artists, staff and patrons, (many of whom have to travel from far away, even internationally), to ask anyone to travel to Colorado from across the country and the globe, before we know it is absolutely safe for everyone to do so. We are also holding-off until 2022 because we want to be able to share in a complete festival experience, one we have come to know, love and expect, with multiple days of basking in the Colorado sunshine, complete with tree-net and hammock cuddle-puddles, partner yoga classes, dynamic dance-floors and without having to enforce social distancing rules or impose restrictions to individual freedoms.”– Team Sonic Bloom
All tickets purchased for the 2020 or 2021 festival dates are all still automatically valid for the new dates, June 16-19, 2022. The lineup will also remain much the same as it was when originally booked for 2020, with Tipper still confirmed to perform next summer along with the majority of the original lineup. The complete lineup will be announced later this year.
To help keep us in the festival mindset and help spread the festival community’s knowledge and culture, Streaming Bloom has expanded to include a full online virtual SONIC BLOOM Academy. Only accessible to current ticket-holders and future 2022 ticket buyers, the Academy includes video archives of music, festival workshops, performances, and artist interviews from Sonic Bloom’s past festivals, stretching all the way back to the first festival in 2006.
