ARISE Music Festival 2015

As another summer approaches in the beautiful state of Colorado we get to look forward to the many incredible adventures that will come. There are the mountains, nature, hiking, camping, outdoor music, outdoor art, biking and so much more. This might sound like a basic list for all the things a person might try to accomplish over the three months that make up summer, but to the experienced Northern Colorado resident this is a short list of what awaits at the ARISE Music Festival. I say short list because Arise offers opportunities for these basic Colorado summer luxuries and so much more.

Over the last two years the fine folks that put ARISE together have developed an event that beckons all to join in the fun. A family friendly event ARISE is set in the beautiful foothills of the Rocky Mountains just outside Loveland Colorado. Situated on 100 acres at the breath taking Sunrise Ranch, ARISE offers so much more than just music. Over three days you will have the opportunity to get involved, gain awareness and lose yourself in an atmosphere that breaths community.

As you explore the festival grounds you’ll come across an art gallery and art installations, the Rainbow Lightning Children’s’ Village and the Solutions Village. All places that you and your family can become part of a larger family and grow with the people around you. You can experience internationally recognized speakers, screen films and be a part of thoughtful innovated discussions in the Sunrise Dome, a 400 seat domed theater in the middle of the festival grounds.

As you become more aware of the environment and world around you, you may find the need to experience the spirit of the ARISE Music Festival. The Temple of the Heart offers a space committed to bringing festival goers closer to one another and the loving space within.  In this sanctuary you can experience diverse yoga flows, breathtaking performances and community building dance parties, all while overseeing the beauty that is Sunrise Ranch.

“The music is like the fire …. and we all gather around it to warm our souls, the intention of the festival is to facilitate and amplify that inspiration into real life action”.   Paul Bassis, Producer ARISE
