Well, we’re approaching that time of year again. Though I suppose we got a glimpse of what FoCo’s summers look like these past few weeks. With the sun constantly shining, I know I was outside in shorts and a t-shirt. The warm weather also brought music festival anticipation, initiated by Arise Music Festival’s release of their initial 2017 lineup.
Arise does a particularly impressive job of catering to its bounty of loyal attendees. Ranging from mothers to party frenzied participants clad in an artistic array of psychedelic clothing, this festival becomes an expansive playground for the imaginations and interests of anyone to enjoy. Located in Loveland, Colorado and nestled between the resplendent plateaus of Sunrise Ranch, the location seems to retain the positive energy from years before.
This year, Arise will be featuring David Tipper, an extremely well-renowned British producer of electronic music. Commonly known as Tipper, he is likely to siphon his listeners into a bouncing, meticulous, and original set. With the utilization of turntables and other equipment harnessed with such talented perfection, Tipper varies his music styles between uptempo, downtempo, and “Tip-Hop,” his individual spin on trip-hop. Other electronic artists will include Colorado favorites, Bass Physics, widely recognized psy-trance artists —Desert Dwellers, and many more. Arise certainly provides a profusion of electronic music, but with legendary hip-hop duo Atmosphere and bluegrass from the lovely Bridget Law of Elephant Revival, this year’s festival is sure to resound through your musical memory long into the future!
