Rated as one of the "Top 7 Next-Gen Festivals" in North America by Buzzfeed, the independent Arise Music Festival features international and national touring headliners, regional acts, as well as Colorado's up-and-coming performers. Additionally, each year the event plays host to a variety of dynamic presentations which include some of the nation’s known yoga instructors, activism-thought leaders and workshop presenters.
Attendees can expect a visual performance of Transition Theater and inspired to action by globally-recognized environmental activists, including Julia Butterfly Hill and Oscar-nominated filmmaker, Josh Fox. Arise attempts to fulfill the mission of the festival: to promote ecological "thrive-ability" and connection through uplifting art, entertainment, and activism.
Known for its "Global Cooling Initiatives," such as planting a tree with every ticket sold, the festival goes to great lengths to encourage attendees to practice eco-mindfulness through a number of "thrive-ability" practices. Arise Music Festival provides water for free and plastic water bottles are not sold onsite; instead attendees are advised to bring re-usables. Additionally, in symphony with the festival's progressive composting and recycling programs provided by ZeroHero, ARISE requires all vendors to serve their assortment of food and beverages using only compostable products provided by festival sponsor, EcoProducts. Truly a leave-no-trace event, Arise is celebrated for its cleanliness and participant cooperation.
