Article Contributed by press | Published on Thursday, May 15, 2008

Sonic Bloom is a 3-day camping festival, connecting music, dance, art and human performance in an atmosphere designed to inspire open channels of creativity amongst everyone involved. Featuring bands such as Zilla and Lotus, groundbreaking DJ's like Bassnectar and Bluetech, and countless visual artists, participants and attendees of Sonic Bloom will together co-create a world of communal improvisation.

Taking place in beautiful Winter Park, CO at the Winter Park Mountain Resort, this year's site will offer gorgeous scenery and countless amenities. From its vast wilderness landscapes, free camping, outdoor recreation, and first class hotel and dining accommodations, the Winter Park Mountain Resort offers something for everyone. Activities featured this year include mountain biking, Colorado's largest alpine slide, chairlift rides, and climbing.

Attendees can also expect visionary art exhibits, workshops, sculpture, fire performances, food vending (including vegetarian and vegan options), a variety of restaurants, craft vending, and amazing outdoor recreation in additional to an incredible aural experience. Those in attendance are encouraged to bring costumes as well as small gifts for fellow festivarians.

This year's Sonic Bloom Festival will benefit the Conscious Alliance and their initiative, Project Restoration, to create a network of food distribution facilities on impoverished American Indian Reservations. For each 10-item, non-perishable food donation, patrons will receive a free Sonic Bloom commemorative poster.
