ARISE Music Festival
ARISE Music Festival
ARISE is a music, yoga, activism and co-creative camping festival. Located just 65 miles north of Denver CO at Sunrise Ranch, this breath taking rocky mountain oasis is the perfect container for participants to entertain and be entertained, explore their creative potentials, connect with nature, stretch out, dive in, and dance.


ARISE Music Festival is celebrating its fifth year in Colorado this August 4-6 in Loveland. Over the years, the festival has featured such luminary talent as Micheal Franti, Beats Antique, Xavier Rudd, Galactic, The Polish Ambassador, Jurassic 5, Papadosio, Keller Williams, Groundation, Greensky Bluegrass, The Infamous Stringdusters, Nahko & Medicine For The People, Emancipator Ensemble, Random Rab and many more. With a focus on conscious music, ARISE Music Festival seeks performers in a wide variety of genres. You may find that you discover as many new bands at ARISE, as the number of bands you came to see.

The ARISE Festival shines with outstanding Workshops, The Gaia Yoga Sanctuary, ARISE Dialogues, Art Gallery & Art Installations, the Rainbow Lightning Children’s Village, a Solutions Village and Village of Healing. The 100 acre Sunrise Ranch festival grounds is also home to a permanent, 400 seat dome theater to present internationally-recognized speakers, screen films, host thought leaders and innovators and hold open discussions for positive change. All of that across 7 stages with world class and underground music. See you at Sunrise Ranch this August 4-6!

“The music is like the fire …. and we all gather around it to warm our souls,” says Paul Bassis, Producer of ARISE. “The intention of the festival is to facilitate and amplify that inspiration into real life action.”

ARISE Music Festival’s intention is to create the kind of experience that is uniquely possible when we are all in it together from beginning to end. We hope you choose to join us. It’s going to be magical.

Thievery Corporation
Thievery Corporation
Rob Garza and Eric Hilton met at Eighteenth Street Lounge in May 1995. They were introduced by a mutual friend and proceeded to discuss their admiration for the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim and the 60's bossa sound. Weeks later, in a home studio, they began to work on the music that would launch Thievery Corporation. After several early 12" singles, Thievery Corporation released Sounds From the Thievery Hi-Fi on ESL Music. That record is already considered by most to be a classic of the new electronic era.
Trevor Hall
Trevor Hall
Trevor Hall realized at a very young age that music was more than just a passion. As an eleven year old, playing harmonica beside his father in the cradle of the weeping willows of South Carolina, music quickly became his most intimate companion, guide and creative outlet. In his elementary years, he began to write his own songs and perform them locally.
At sixteen he recorded his first record, and the following year he left South Carolina to study classical guitar at Idyllwild Arts Academy, an international boarding school east of Los Angeles. There, Trevor was introduced to yoga and certain spiritual practices found in India, which greatly influenced his music and his life journey. During his senior year, Trevor signed a record deal with Geffen Records and his career as a musician formally began.
Trevor quickly broke through the music scene, with such early accomplishments in his career as having a song recorded on the Shrek the Third soundtrack, as well as joining a series of sold-out tours with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti and Colbie Callait. Trevor’s quick rise on the scene, however, was ripe with challenges that conflicted with his spiritual life and devotional practice. In order to parallel his life’s path with the messages in his music, Trevor moved into a traditional Hindu ashram in Southern California in 2008. When not on tour, he lived as a monk and devoted his days to spiritual practice and service. His involvement with the temple affected his music and his music quickly became his practice.
Trevor Hall’s music – an eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting – echo with the names and teachings of divinities, while maintaining an incredibly and refreshingly universal message. While on the road, Trevor sees the stage as his moving temple, a place where he can share in the experience of his spiritual journey with his audience. Trevor’s annual trips to India also continue to serve as a source of creativity and motivation for his music. The precious lessons and experiences that he has harvested from his journeys East have moved Trevor to return a service to those whom have colored his music and his life so beautifully. Trevor uses donations collected at his live shows to help support an ashram in Allahabad, India, the home of his Guru, where underprivileged and orphaned boys and girls are given the chance at a better life and a traditional Vedic education.
Trevor’s self-titled debut album debuted on Billboard’s Heatseeker chart at #7 in 2009. It featured the single “Unity,” written and performed with his longtime friend, Matisyahu. Trevor was named one of the Top 20 New Artists by Music Connection magazine and in 2010 MTV named him one of the twenty emerging artists.
His follow up album, Everything, Everytime, Everywhere, was released in 2011 and debuted on the iTunes Rock Chart at #3, iTunes Top Albums at #12 and #8 on Amazon Movers & Shakers. The featured single, “Brand New Day” was used as the music bed for the CBS This Morning Show.
In 2013 at the age of 26, after touring consistently for ten years, Trevor decided to take a break from the stage and go on an extended pilgrimage to India. There he spent many weeks studying under a classical Baul musician born and trained in the villages of Bengal. Trevor returned from his trip and retreated deep into the green mountains of Vermont and Maine where he spilled all that he had learnt onto the page and into song, resulting in the release of Chapter of the Forest in 2014. It debuted at #3 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Chart and #17 on the iTunes Top Albums Chart.
His latest album, KALA, written in Hawaii and recorded in LA, was released August 21, 2015. It debuted at #2 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. KALA marks the final chapter in a trilogy that chronicles Trevor’s spiritual and musical journey over the past few years. “It’s a graceful amalgam of styles by a musician who loves to embrace the music of the world.” (Popmatters)

Living Legends
Living Legends
The Living Legends crew is a family of independent hip-hop creators bringing their own raw, unique sound and an unfiltered glimpse into their daily lives. It is this personal connection with the audience that has allowed their loyal fan base to extend around the world and it is their talent as emcees and producers that has garnered them the respect of their peers.

It all started with BFAP (now known as Sunspot Jonz) and PSC (Luckyiam), who laid claim to the name of Mystik Journeymen in the early 1990's. By '94 they were locally legendary for throwing Underground Survivors shows, houseparty style at their loft – 4001 San Leandro Street, in East Oakland. That's where The Grouch hooked up with the Journeymen in 1995, just before they took off on their renowned first European tour.

Around the same time in the southern part of the state, Mid-city Los Angeles to be exact, 3 Melancholy Gypsys (Murs, Scarub & Eligh) were part of the almost mythic Log Cabin crew going back to 1993. Log Cabin later broke up and the Gypsys wandered separately. As it turned out, the three would cross paths again in the Bay Area and became Living Legends.

Aesop came to Oakland from Fresno, Arata from Osaka, and Bicasso from various points, East, West and elsewhere...

In 1999 the Legends shifted their center of gravity to Los Angeles, but their presence has definitely not diminished in Oakland and the Bay. You know it makes no difference where they stay because the universe revolves around them anyway. Over the years, The Living Legends have rocked Europe, Japan, Australia and Canada numerous times, plus they've toured the USA, north and south, east coast, west coast and beyond ...

In the years since, The Living Legends have continued releasing solo and crew projects and now have a catalog of over 50 full-length albums and numerous singles. All in all, this crew of motivated do-it-yourselfers has sold over 400,000 albums collectively, all with no major radio or television airplay, and 100% independently. At the beginning of 2008 The Legends came together at the famed Encore Studios in Burbank, CA to record, "The Gathering". A seven-song album that was recorded within a weeks time and features every crew member, on every single song, a feat that has never been done before in Hip Hop. The group has no plans to let up and they're only turning up the fire, so see if you can keep up.

Legends Baby!!!!
