Loveland, CO: ARISE Music Festival tops 2017’s outstanding lineup with the addition of Lettuce and SunSquabi to join fellow headliners ranging from hip-hop to funk, reggae to rock, folk to electronic for anticipated The 5th Year Celebration at the beautiful Sunrise Ranch. ARISE’s 2017 headliners also include Atmosphere, TIPPER, Beats Antique, Ani DiFranco, Rising Appalachia, The Expendables, and Brother Ali as well as over 200 performances, presentations and more across seven stages this August 4-6.
Hot off the heels of a packed performance at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Boston-based Lettuce has brought a new vitality to classic funk, matching their smooth and soulful grooves with a hip-hop-inspired urgency and a profound mastery of beat. Performing for nearly two decades, Lettuce is celebrated for their unique brand of groove-fueled future funk, building off its highly danceable rhythm with a blissfully free and horn-laced arrangement.
Locally grown SunSquabi has added to the ranks of Colorado artists on the rise. A three-piece live electronic experience, the act has risen from small clubs to Red Rocks in just a few short years. With influences that range from King Crimson to Jeff Beck and Daft Punk, SunSquabi seeks to break boundaries of electronic dance music by infusing each track with rock and funk.
With a primary focus on high-energy, socially-conscious performers, the ARISE Music Festival will feature a selection of yoga and movement workshops each day, special guest presenters, interactive workshops, art installations, documentary films, Odell craft brews, a food truck village and vendors specializing in organic and natural products. A family friendly festival, ARISE offers free admission for children (under 12) and all kid activities in the Rainbow Lightening Children’s Village.
The 3-day ARISE Music Festival takes place August 4-6, 2017 at the breathtaking Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado, located 25 minutes from Fort Collins, 45 minutes from Boulder and just over an hour from Denver.
