Strewn with rays of mile high sunshine it’s hard not to take in all of the natural beauty this state has to offer. Another aspect of Colorado that is changing every year is their blooming music festival scene. We’re here today to turn the spotlight on a young festival that just began to root themselves in the heart of Loveland, CO last summer.
