There is no Planet B, people. This precious, life-giving, blue-green Planet Earth is the only home to all living things. The ARISE Music Festival is excited to be working with Fort Collins, Colorado based non-profit Trees, Water & People for the second consecutive year to plant one tree for every ticket sold.
Trees, Water & People's (TWP) mission is to improve people's lives by helping communities protect, conserve, and manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depend.
TWP work is guided by two core beliefs: • Natural resources are best protected when local people play an active role in their care and management; and • Preserving local ecosystems is essential for the ongoing social, economic, and environmental health of communities everywhere.
Dedicated to holding space for youth, ARISE offers free passes and kid-friendly programming for children 12 and under. The Children's Village features a dome for creative play in the shade as well as a performance art stage. In addition to sharing music, musicians will lead improvisational sessions for children to learn, play, and provide an opportunity for kids of all ages to take part in a live music performance.
ARISE and Gaia are proud to announce that One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das will be screened in The Big Sunrise Dome at ARISE 2016.
In 1970, a young musician named Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock ’n’ roll stardom—turning down the lead singer slot in the band that would become Blue Oyster Cult. He sold all his possessions and moved from the suburbs of New York to the foothills of the Himalayas in search of happiness and a little-known saint named Neem Karoli Baba (or Maharajji). One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das follows Kagel’s journey to India and back, his struggles with depression and drug abuse, and his eventual emergence as Krishna Das — the world-renowned spiritual teacher, chant master and Grammy-nominated recording artist. Featuring interviews with Be Here Now author and spiritual guru Ram Dass, Grammy-winning producer Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, Metallica, Johnny Cash), New York Times bestselling author Sharon Salzberg, and two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee Daniel Goleman, as well as a score by Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis and Devadas, One Track Heart is the inspiring story of how one man’s journey continues to transform countless lives.
Following the film will be a Q&Amoderated by Gaia meditation teacher Mark Williams with Stephanie Schwartz, a Gaia yoga teacher and longtime kirtan practitioner, and Katie Wise, kirtan rocker of Bhakti Explosion, who are both performing at ARISE 2016 in the Gaia Yoga Sanctuary.
Be sure to visit the Gaia Yoga Sanctuary new to ARISE this year!
Tour has just begun and I fear in a month Dead and Company could be done. An editorial by Kevin Long Image created by Van Rapp I take absolute no pleasure in writing anything negative about the one true love of my life. I don't do it to lessen anybody’s experience, I am just one person who has perspective and passion. But, Houston we have a problem. I realize they are only two shows in and it's been an emotional week for the band. I am such a fanatic that I gave both shows good reviews because buzzed, excited and in all good company I heard what I wanted to. Upon further review, I have listened to both nights a few times sober and they are less than stellar. In fact, they are a train wreck with moments of the morphine you get after the metaphorical crash. To be blunt, they sound like the band we all were afraid of when we first learned of Mayer’s involvement. I was worried about John being tired after his demanding schedule. It’s much more than fatigue, he has lost his chops al…
Amazon Announces the cast for their Upcoming Grateful Dead T.V. Show.
This was my April Fool's Joke!
Amazon just released the cast members that will play the Grateful Dead band members in their upcoming show about the band's life. I am not an acting coach but I must admit there are more than a few head scratchers. Before we announce the cast, one odd moment actually delayed the production team from casting the respective roles of the show. When executive producer and GD member Bobby Weir insisted on playing Jerry Garcia. The uncomfortable week of dealing with this unrealistic request came to an end when Bill Walton pointed out to Bobby that he has in fact been playing that role already since Jerry untimely death in 1995. One thing Bob was adamant about was picking the actor to play him. He insisted on 80's child star Corey Feldman, Bobby was quoted of saying "Just watch "Dream a Little Dream" 1 threw 6 if you think he does not have the chee…
