Whereas the festival was once named "ZILLA Fest," due to its founders being in the super-group of the same name, Sonic Bloom has since grown into a premier festival for Colorado electronic music fans. This year, Sonic Bloom has some returning favorites, as well as some new acts that haven't been able to play before a majestic sunset on a trickling creek. In addition to all the acts listed below (there will be more announced in the second wave soon), there will be a ton of other artful and fun attractions, including art galleries, whitewater rafting trips, fire and aerial performances, live painting, projection mapping, hiking, yoga, jugglers and more. Here's the acts that have been listed thus far:
