Sonic Bloom festival makes a move to South Park this June, tickets on sale Tuesday, March 4

Sonic Bloom, the mountain music and arts festival that has made its home at Shadows Ranch in Georgetown, Colorado, for the past few years, has announced a new location: American Safari Ranch in South Park, Colorado. No word on what prompted the move, but it could have something to do with the events at last year's edition of the festival. Whatever the case, Sonic Bloom has continued to step up its game every year, so we trust that this year's event, slated for Thursday, June 19, through Saturday, June 22, will be equally well received. Keep reading to see the lineup that's been announced thus far.
