Sonic Bloom, Colorado’s premiere electronic music and camping festival, will return to Hummingbird Ranch this June 15-18 for its 12th annual installment.
Sonic Bloom is an annual electronic music and camping festival held over the Summer Solstice at the beautiful and sacred Hummingbird Ranch, located two hours south of Denver, Colorado. It was started in 2005, unifying a cast of some of the world’s most electrifying musicians, performers, visionaries and artists. Sonic Bloom is an “inspiring showcase of the best of Colorado’s vibrant live and electronic music scene and is at the forefront of the transformative festival movement.” In 2012, EDM publication Magnetic Magazine named the event “Colorado’s premiere electronic music festival.”
