Returning to Loveland, CO for the fifth straight year, the beautiful ARISE Festival has announced a hard-hitting lineup for their 2017 event, going down August 4-6 at Sunrise Ranch. ARISE has continued to build a strong reputation within the Colorado scene, bringing incredible and diverse performers into a uniquely intimate and gorgeous setting. Today, the festival reveals the first of three exciting headliners: the vibe-heavy, groove machines Beats Antique, along with electro-future-funk acts Break Science and Android Jones.
The festival has seemingly outdone themselves in 2017, boasting a lineup with exciting sets from Atmosphere, Tipper, Ani DiFranco, Rising Appalachia, Brother Ali, The Expendables, Dirtwire, Desert Dwellers, Dopapod, Brasstracks, and Late Night Radio. The lineup continues with featured appearances from bluegrass favorites The Travelin’ McCourys, Jeff Austin Band, The Brothers Comatose, and The Grateful Ball featuring Jeff Austin, Ronnie McCoury, Robbie McCoury, and more.

With eight stages of musical performances, plus more bands to be announced through May, the 5th Year Celebration of Colorado’s fastest growing music festival is sure to be the best yet.
Recognized as more than a music festival, ARISE offers a range of activities such as workshops, enriching yoga classes, provocative documentary films and panel discussions, art installations, live painters, art gallery, performance artists and theme camps. ARISE also offers “interactive villages” including a Children’s Village, Food Truck Village, Vending Village, Healers Village, Hemp Village, Wisdom Village and a Solution’s Village, showcasing ecological and social justice solutions with practical on-site demonstrations designed to make our world a better place.
