It’s time to say goodbye to 2020 and ARISE to a new year!
The Shift Network have announced the Winter Solstice Fest, a free and intimate livestream event, set to run from December 18th-20th, 2020. The three-day festival will bring an international line up of musicians, ritualists, artists, visionary speakers, indigenous elders, and more together with a focus on renewal. The festival features appearances by Shpongle, John Butler, Taimane, Michael Franti, and many more. Registration is open at WinterSolsticeFest.com.
With an artfully curated lineup, attendees will be treated to sets by Wookiefoot, Desert Dwellers, David Starfire, Dub Kirtan All-Stars, FreQ Nasty, Random Rab, and Dixon’s Violin to name a few, as well as a Thursday pre-party featuring Prophet Massive (Jason Hann of String Cheese Incident and EOTO) and Chase Makai (of Medicine for the People).
This was a very special night for me, and Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom was packed for one of the most anticipated and creative artistic creation pre-celebrations in a while. It was an official pre-party for the new rock opera called the Portal being performed at the Glitter Dome in Denver. The earth heart tour featured Desert Dwellers, Kalya Scintilla, Eve Olution, Sixis and Yuyu. The busy bill had the night kick off fairly early, and the performers and audience were prepared for a time of transcendence.
