What do folk-icon Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul & Mary), actress-activist Sheryl Lee (Twin Peaks), musical headliners Beats Antique, Galactic, The Polish Ambassador, Nahko and Medicine for the People, and herbalist Brigitte Mars have in common?

Continuing with its sui generis methodology, the event’s eco-centric programming will also include a special performance of stories and songs with the legendary folk artist Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul & Mary fame.

Part music festival, part well-being symposium, the ARISE Music Festival offers much more than four stages of music as part of the festival ticket.

With a lineup that reads like the who’s-who of natural health and eco-activism, the three-day camping event will feature diverse workshops ranging from medicinal herb walks to African drum classes, belly dance instruction and a full schedule of yoga classes offered throughout 100-acre festival grounds.

More than just a music festival, ARISE is a movement.

Organized by a collective of artists, musicians and activists the ARISE Music Festival sets out to educate participants on local, regional and national environmental issues, as well as provide health and lifestyle oriented classes for participants of all ages and varied interests.

Loaded to the brim with fun and educational workshops, independent documentary films and guest celebrity-activists; festival promoters hope fans will take much more than just a good time from their festival experience.

Set in an up-cycled landscape provided by visionary artist Bruce Campbell, the family-friendly ARISE Music Festival promises to provide a gorgeous array of natural-born visuals to accompany the fun.

The festival has opened its gates to a number of local and regional artists who will be featured either live artists or in one of the many ARISE art galleries.

Attendees can also look forward to visiting a number of arts and crafts booths, food vendors and sample some of Colorado’s finest craft brews and organic beverages.

The festival is fit for all ages with camping options for families and specialized kids programming each day, including a kid-friendly sing along with Peter Yarrow in the Sunrise Dome on Saturday with favorites “Puff in the Magic Dragon” and “Blowing in the Wind”.

Camping options include walk-in or car camping, upgraded VIP options as well as luxury glam-camping provided by The Show Sherpa.

By: Richele Cole

Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, that funky foursome from Baltimore, MD, released their highly-anticipated studio album “Psychology” in a pre-Independence Day party at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC.

Faithful Pigeons fans, known as The Flock, were out in full force, turning the dance floor into a sea of sweat, glitter, and sing-alongs as Pigeons treated their flock to favorites from the album like F.U.(NK), Julia (which I overheard a fledgling flocker declare should be the song of the summer), and Melting Lights (one of my top picks).
