Multi-PLATINUM entertainer Dierks Bentley and the world’s leading live entertainment company Live Nation announced the inaugural SEVEN PEAKS MUSIC FESTIVAL today. Destined to be the most fresh and eclectic country festival this summer, Seven Peaks Music Festival will converge over three days with multiple stages and a campground set in front of the awe-inspiring collegiate peaks mountain range in Buena Vista, CO this Labor Day Weekend (Aug 31-Sept. 2). Bentley, who will take the stage several times over the course of the weekend, has invited friends and collaborators Miranda Lambert, Brothers Osborne, Elle King, LANCO, Del McCoury, Sam Bush and The Cadillac Three as the first announced artists to play, with more to be revealed in the coming weeks. Three-day passes for the one-of-a-kind experience will go on-sale beginning April 20 at 10am MST on sevenpeaksfestival.com.
Like his upcoming studio album THE MOUNTAIN, Seven Peaks Music Festival was inspired from Bentley’s love of The West. An eclectic and comradery-filled lineup that offers a who’s-who of first-class musicians, fans can expect the unexpected with late-night jams and surprise guests, as well as activity-filled excursions during the day. The natural beauty of the site’s sprawling grounds provides the perfect homegrown vibe for a Labor Day weekend camp out under the stars, where festival-goers will have multiple camping options from tents to full-sized RV accommodations. More details are available here.
“This is a dream come true for me. It’s no secret that I love everything about Colorado…the fans, the venues we’ve played and of course, the landscape,” Dierks Bentley said. “We are bringing it all together with this festival. It’s our own ‘field of dreams,’ where we are putting everything we have into it, with no details overlooked, in hopes it is the ultimate festival experience. I personally will be right in there with our fans listening to best musicians, taking advantage of the unlimited outdoor opportunities including hiking, biking and playing in the river and lake…or maybe just sitting with a cold one all day in the Colorado sunshine and under the Rocky Mountain stars.”
“Seven Peaks Music Festival is something Dierks and I, along with our teams have been cooking up for a while,” said Brian O’Connell, President of Country Touring at Live Nation. “We wanted to continue to make everything about this project unique in the festival landscape, from the lineup to the setting to what fans will be able to do onsite. As soon as we stepped on the grounds in Buena Vista, we were just blown away, it feels other-worldly out there and I can’t wait for more people to get to experience that. The site is absolutely breathtaking, and we feel that we will only add to Colorado’s rich history of unreal music settings. A true country music and camping festival, developed in collaboration with Dierks, one of the most respected artists in our community, is far and away the most innovative festival projects ever taken on, and I am honored to be involved in this project!”
