While we wish we could have hung out and danced together festival-style, ARISE Online NYE reminded us that we are together, for each other and supporting our community together!

Streaming from Colorado Sound Studios, we rang in the new year with a FREE virtual celebration headlined by Desert Dwellers with performances by Magic Beans, Spectacle, Melody Lines, rap, poetry, art and interviews.

You can still catch the show - just check it out on YouTube here or below!

Donations are still being accepted to support the performers and Sweet Relief Musicians Fund and strongly encouraged. Donate $15 or more to receive an ARISE tapestry by Phil Lewis Art!

ARISE Music Festival wants to give a special thanks to our partners at Colorado Sound Studios, Sierra Nevada, Westword, Verde Natural / Dablogic, Rocky Mountain Virtual and SharedViews Media, for all of their support of ARISE Online. Through creative collaborations and strong partnerships like these, and with the support of our fans, we can push the limits of live music and provide an online streaming experience.
