Following the successful and sold out 2017 ARISE Music Festival, the annual gathering will return again to gorgeous Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado on August 3-5, 2018.  ARISE has become Colorado’s fastest growing summer music festival, anchored in the love of live music. The multi-genre music festival offers 5 stages of world class performances ranging from funk, reggae, bluegrass, jam, hip-hop, rock, electronic, folk to conscious roots music.

This year’s eclectic lineup will feature sets from Slightly Stoopid, Thievery Corporation, Trevor Hall, Pepper, Living Legends, Ott, Quixotic, Everyone Orchestra, The Lil Smokies, and Dumpstaphunk along with a long list of other talented acts that are incredible live. Other ARISE primary attractions include yoga, workshops, art, film, activism, a renowned Children’s Village, plus all the fun and co-creative excitement that can get packed into a 3-day camping festival. All told, ARISE will feature well over 200 scheduled performances and presentations throughout the weekend. Don’t miss it!

With a long-standing commitment to planting one tree for every ticket sold, and an unwavering leave-no-trace ethos, the ARISE Festival’s core values are grounded in a stated mission to serve a vehicle for community-building and creating a festival experience which inspires positivity, joy and active engagement in issues of social justice.
