Most Inclusively Accessible Music Event Ever


The Shine Music Festival brings together communities of all abilities in a space where we can come together and celebrate in the amazing power of music. Too often, people with disabilities are not given the opportunity to participate fully in live music due to accessibility issues. Shine Music Festival is creating an inclusive space that is tailored to those with differing-abilities - from braille menus, accessible pathways, hearing impaired areas, sensory tents and more. 

This free concert event will be hosted at the Levitt Pavilion in Denver, Colorado. The 14,000-capacity outdoor venue will allow us to create an accessible space to accommodate the needs of all in attendance.

Full Body Sound wants to break the haptic barrier,

music lovers shouldn’t be limited to bass

Full Body Sound will have devices at Shine to allow people with a hearing loss to experience not just the bass, but vocals, string instruments, trumpets, etc. It also takes the experience of live music to a whole new level for those who can hear.

Feel the Beat is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to making the experience of music possible for those who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and with Special Needs. They use bone-conduction dance floors that allow students to feel sound through vibrational energy. Our vision is to ensure no one feels left out in the experience of music and dance!

Access Gallery is an inclusive nonprofit organization that engages the community by opening doors to creative, educational and economic opportunities for people with disabilities to access, experience and benefit from the arts.

Shine is honored to have Access Gallery create our festival poster!

Shawn Satterfield

Founder

Without question, live music is my happy place. The community it creates breaks all societal barriers and allows us to come together, despite our differences, and share in the magic that is uniquely created at every show. I’ve seen +600 concerts, +250 different bands, +75 venues in 73 cities, 30 states and 7 countries.

By combining the standard staples of a music festival, with adaptive technology, the Shine Music Festival will be the most inclusively accessible event of its kind.

I have been a lover of live music and festivals for decades. I enjoy all genres but mostly EDM because it is so upbeat and energizing. I’m currently living with Multiple Sclerosis and have been navigating festivals and concerts using a variety of assistive devices. 

I feel a strong connection to the disabled community and am very excited to be a part of the Shine team to create an event where people of differing abilities can all feel comfortable and don’t have to deal with common barriers that typical events pose.

Treasurer

Originally from Chicago, the balance of city and mountain life drew me to Denver where I have since worked in accounting operations for high growth companies.  Whether it’s travel, concerts, frolicking in the mountains, or coffee with a friend, I believe happiness lives in experiences. 

Music has played an especially important, positive role in my life, and I feel its benefits should be experienced by those of all abilities. I’m grateful to contribute my skills to help others enjoy something that has been so meaningful to me.

I am a balancer of creativity and technology, bringing business savvy and marketability to creative fields. I specialize in using social media to drive tangible results and returns. Since 2013, I have worked in social media management for companies in industries across the board – everything from green coffee to financial planning to music.

I am also Founder of Sonder Music Management, a full-service artists management company in Denver, and look forward to bringing in local talent to perform at the Shine Music Festival.

Creative Director

My passion for creativity can be traced back to my childhood. Whether I was free-hand drawing pictures of Snoopy and Garfield or performing the entire Grease soundtrack with my older brother, I was always doing something creative, and that creativity has given me a 22-year career as a graphic designer and art director.

I did not come to live music on my own but have been brought into it over the last 20 years of being married to a live music fanatic. I have been fortunate to experience the collective joy that music can bring to thousands of strangers who are moved by it at any given show – thousands singing the same lyrics at the top of their lungs or dancing so hard the world drops away. It is my honor to be a small part of giving that joy to those whose challenges can make it difficult for them to experience live music.

Partner & Sponsor Management

Music has been at the foundation of my life, especially live music. Music has helped guide me through the good, the bad and the ugly. There is no better feeling than listening or seeing one of my favorite bands and getting goosebumps! I am passionate about all creative means, I believe it is a way for us to share a piece of ourselves.

I look forward to working with all the Shine Sponsors and Partners to make sure that we are meeting all the needs of the communities we wish to share this amazing day with.

Event Production

Due to my disability, I have been an active advocate in disability awareness and accessibility. As an accomplished DJ with 5+ years of experience, I have provided music for a variety of events.  Music is a huge part of our daily life; it brings people together, it is a motivator – it’s something that can inspire people to do and create amazing things, encourage them to reach their full potential, and chase their dreams. Oftentimes, people with different abilities have a challenge of experiencing live events due to accessibility issues. Shine Music Festival aims to create memorable experiences for all people – able-bodied and differently-abled individuals – in a space that’s inclusive, welcoming, and accessible.  I am very excited to help produce this music festival because I want all people to be able to experience something powerful and create lifelong memories.
