Dierks Bentley To Launch New Seven Peaks Music Festival In Colorado

Dierks Bentley is gathering some of his friends and heading to the mountains over Labor Day for his new Seven Peaks Music Festival, which he announced today. Set in Buena Vista, Colorado, the new 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 on Labor Day Weekend (Aug, 31-Sept. 2). 

Bentley will take the stage several times over the course of the weekend, and has invited friends and collaborators including Miranda Lambert, Brothers Osborne, Elle King, LANCO, Del McCoury, Sam Bush and The Cadillac Three as the first announced artists to play, with more set to be revealed in the coming weeks. Seven Peaks was inspired from Bentley’s love of the West, and fans can expect late-night jams, surprise guests, and activity-filled excursions during the day. The natural beauty of the site provides a perfect backdrop for a Labor Day weekend campout under the stars, and festival-goers will have multiple camping options from tents to full-sized RV accommodations.

“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,” 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!”

Three-day passes for the festival will go on-sale beginning April 20 on sevenpeaksfestival.com. Citi is the official pre-sale credit card of the Seven Peaks Music Festival, and Citi cardmembers will have access to purchase pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, April 17 until Thursday, April 19 through Citi’s Private Pass program.
