A crew of Denver’s finest has united to bring a new, independent music festival to the Front Range this August: COMPOUND SOUND. Located on a private ranch near Carpenter, Wyoming (1 hour drive from Fort Collins), Compound Sound will bring the best talent in the Colorado music scene up to the prairie for two days of music, camping and vibes. The festival will feature over 30 acts playing more than 40 hours of music from August 24 through August 26.
The Compound Sound location has been a haven for music festivals for nearly a decade. The idea for the current iteration of the festival was spawned late-night around a lazy susan by members of Denver jamtronica bands Kaleid and Wabakinoset.
The bands teamed up with local promoters Intimate Infinite and Boogie Groove Entertainment to help bring Compound Sound to fruition again here in 2018. “Since 2009 when we first set-up a stage and brought a PA system out to the prairie, we’ve known that something very unique and magical occurs on these grounds,” said Matt Schulz of Intimate Infinite, the festival’s co-founder and promoter.
“Here in 2018, we finally have the opportunity to open this experience up to the vibrant Colorado music community and we couldn’t be more excited to share it! Trust me when I say this, from nine years of experience up there the freedom one can appreciate at Compound Sound is unlike any other event in the world,” said Schulz.
Compound Sound will feature a single stage of nearly constant music, food trucks, vendors, yoga and flow workshops, and a healing village among other exciting events. Headliners include psychedelic rock power trio Cycles, eclectic EDM producer Lucid Vision, electro/funk/hip-hop group Tnertle, and electro-bass band Spectacle. Ticket availability ranges from a 1-day pass to a weekend pass and can be purchased at the ticketing site Eventbrite.
