Megan Hamilton, Quixotic, Everyone Orchestra and +60 Live Acts in Loveland, Colorado

The ARISE Music Festival has just announced their 2018 lineup with over 60 live acts set to perform aside of the Rocky Mountains in Loveland, Colorado from August 3-5.

This year the festival is hosting multiple genres of live music from various parts of the globe. Thousands of guests and musicians will connect at Sunrise Ranch.

Currently, I am been spinning The Temple of I&I vinyl by the Thievery Corporation. It is one of my favorite albums of 2017 & 2018. Overall, I will probably be spinning this record until the festival in August.

Music festivals are an excellent way to find out new music as well. When I was looking through the lineup to compile a YouTube playlist, one artist stood out in a major way. Megan Hamilton has the energy and originality to be a force to reckon in the near future.

In addition to the current lineup, the festival is also going to announce two additional headliners in April and May.

The ARISE Music Festival is located just 60 miles north of Denver, Colorado. This year will mark the sixth year for the family-run event. The festival hosts a wide selection of music, as well as yoga and various workshops to simulate your mind, body and soul.

Gates are scheduled to open at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, August 3, and they will close 12:00 noon Monday, August 5.
