For the second year in a row, ARISE Music Festival will take over 100s of Colorado’s grassy green acres for a truly unique festival. An acronym that means Activate / Reconnect / Interact / Synchronize / Empower, the goal of ARISE Festival is to do just that. Through yoga intensives, art installations, interactive workshops, a mini documentary film festival, and–most importantly–music, the festival has cultivated a one-of-a-kind experience meant for both festy veterans and daring families looking to spice up their summer camping trip.

While the myriad of activities available at ARISE would be enough to satisfy even the most passive of music listeners, one can’t deny that this year’s lineup is completely stacked. Headliners include: Beats Antique, Galactic, and Grateful Grass ft. Keller Williams and Billy Nershi (from String Cheese Incident). Performances from Tribal Seeds, Nahko and Medicine for the People, and Groundation should keep reggae lovers satisfied, and a bluegrass set from The Infamous Stringdusters will round the weekend out nicely.

Besides the tunes, yoga, mini-docs and art, festy-goers can also expect delicious food, local brews, and fine craft vendors specializing in organic and natural products of all kinds. ARISE also caters to families with daily kid-friendly activities and programming culminating in a kid’s parade on Saturday evening. Basically, there’s something at ARISE Festival for everyone.
