Moonshine Music Festival, a new hybrid gathering, is set to debut in Colorado next summer.

Part Music Festival and part sporting event, Moonshine Music Festival, the newest event on our radar right now is set to take place in the woods outside Blackhawk, CO next summer. With the Music and Workshop lineups still a secret, the promoters have promised us this- “Expect bassy, hip-hoppy, jammy, electronic, funky, swingy, glitchy vibes of all kinds.” What is getting our attention right now isn’t the musical promises, but rather the unconfirmed workshop schedule. Workshops are sometimes overlooked as a Festival highlight, but the Moonshine Folks have teamed up with Pedal BMX to create an amazingly diverse list of workshop topics. Some of which are:

Lock Picking
Home Brewing
Stand-up Comedy
MIDI Remote Scripting
and Sound Design

If the workshops aren’t your thing, perhaps Moonshine’s other promised theme is more appealing to you. Pedal BMX and Moonshine Music Festival are designing the festival around the premise of Colorado’s love for action sports as well as music. “One of the stages will be a ramp with BMX bikers and skaters, another stage will be next to a lake being ridden by wakeboarders and not far off are the dirt jumps and ski and snowboard rail jam.”

With a sliding scale of ticket prices, and a long wait to the actual festival, you have plenty of time to plan on adding Moonshine Music Fest to your summer plans. There will be plenty of Moonshine Music Fest events and information leading up to August, and I’m sure we at VibeWest will be covering it all as this looks to be one of our favorite new festivals.
