Welcome to “the Cradle,” the festival’s new home in Colorado positioned to take the festival to the next level!
After researching locations throughout the state, Luke Comer, owner and producer of ARISE, selected an organic farm and ranch in Boone, Colorado as the permanent site to build upon and enhance the ARISE Music Festival experience. “Because Arise owns the property, we are able to masterplan for our future – to create, over time, a festival that is functional, innovative and beautiful, and that provides our patrons with one of the most epic and uplifting experiences on earth,” said Comer.
Located approximately two hours from major cities in Colorado and within reach of New Mexico, ARISE looks forward to expanding accessibility to a larger community of family and fans. With 10 times the acreage of our previous site, the location boasts 400 acres of irrigated fields, abundant cottonwood trees offering needed shade, and picturesque views of the Arkansas River flowing along the border. Festivalgoers will find green, dust-free fields with comfortable, flat campgrounds, distance from neighbors, ample electricity, both potable and irrigated water, and easy access via paved roads.
Beyond the new location, ARISE celebrates again building the festival community and bringing back the experiences our festivalgoers have come to know and love. The festival will feature multiple stages with live music spotlighting funk, reggae, bluegrass, jam, hip-hop, rock, electronic and folk performances. Festival offerings will also span yoga, camping, workshops, art installations, dance, design and theater. ARISE intends to stay true to its roots, but this new location is a blank canvas where ARISE can reinvest many of the ideas behind festivals.
