Sonic Bloom, one of Colorado’s favorite local music festivals, has just recently released their daily time schedules for the four days of shenanigans down in South Park. The lineup has been spread out as diversely as possible, trying to ensure there is as little overlap as possible between all the popular and big name acts, such as VibeSquaD, The Polish Ambassador, Tipper and many more. As with any festival, the task of trying to space out the more admired bands and DJs is an enormous and usually difficult challenge to take on, however the men and women at work behind Sonic Bloom have coordinated brilliantly to accomplish their goal.
While there is certainly still some friction between set times, Sonic Bloom’s three large stages have been laid out in an attempt to make traversing the area from set to set as easy as possible. The festival has also given multiple sets to those artists that were most demanded. Kaminanda, kLL sMTH, Tipper, Michal Menert and more all perform multiple times throughout the weekend, some on the same day and others on different days. This ensures that festival-goers will have the opportunity to see a headliner that there may have been a scheduling conflict with.
Each day has significant attention drawn to a cluster of great artists, beginning with Thursday. On the Bloom (main) Stage, the opening ceremony kicks off the festival at 6:30 PM, followed by Sunsquabi & Friends at 6:45. There are six incredible acts on the Bloom stage following Sunsquabi, including Akasha and Kaminanda, and headlining with VibeSquaD at 11:45 PM. The COdome and the Hummingbird Stage will also have fantastic artists playing until around 1:15 AM.
On Friday, the music kicks off at the Hummingbird Stage with Numatik at 12:30 PM, Mamuth at the COdome at 1 PM, and Jon Wayne & The Pain at 2:30 PM on the Bloom Stage. From there, the Bloom Stage explodes with talented acts, hosting Dynohunter at 3:45, Zoogma at 6:15, Ott. at 9, Tipper at 11 and finally The Polish Ambassador at 1 AM. There are many other great performers that should be experienced on the other stages on Friday too, so make sure to do a few laps through the grounds.
On Saturday the music begins between noon and 1 PM, however on this day it’s the COdome that booms with talent. Zion-I, Paul Basic, Supervision and Michal Menert in that order is too spectacular to miss. Then hustle over to the Bloom Stage to watch Tipper close out the night.
You would imagine that Sunday would be a pretty lax day for Sonic Bloom. Well actually it’s quite the opposite. Music begins at 1 PM and gets popping at night with ZILLA, a mystery guest, Break Science, Shpongle and Eoto on the Bloom Stage, followed by a late night Random Rab set at the COdome, which begins at 1:15 AM and has no official end time. Surely, Rab will play long into the early morning, closing out what is sure to be an incredible Sonic Bloom.
