We hope your summer has been filled with positivity, self-expansion, outdoor adventures, and of course, lots of live music! Despite the challenge we’ve faced this year, we’ve loved watching our community embrace change and new experiences. You are nothing less than inspiring in understanding that this world keeps spinning, and music heals all wounds.
We are forever indebted for your support of independent music festivals in this crowded space of live music. As you’ve seen, supporting independent festivals is critical at a time when big national promoters continue to open festival after festival. That is why we are recommending you support our good friends at High Ground Music & Arts Experience 2022, returning to Colorado in just a few weeks at the Denver Polo Club.
Like ARISE, High Ground embraces the beauty of Colorado and offers fantastic local, national and international acts that embody chill, vibey, live-performed fusions of electronic, funk and indie-based music. High Ground also celebrates local visual artists, mindfulness and well-being activities and so much more.
High Ground takes place on Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11 with artists like Troyboi, Chromeo, TOKiMONSTA, What So Not, Gioli & Assia and Elohim. Some of our favorite ARISE alumni, including Maddy O’neal, Ill-Esha, Lucid Vision and Spectacle, will be making their High Ground debut as well!
