It seems every year, more festivals are announced, with each one trying its best to stand out from the crowd. Country music star Dierks Bentley has a plan for his newly announced Seven Peaks Music Festival, and part of what will set his apart is the stunning mountainous Colorado location. Debuting Labor Day weekend this year, Bentley is putting his nearly two decades of industry experience to work with his curated event.
Bentley told Billboard in an interview that he intended to be heavily involved with the festival on the ground, making his presence well known. A lot of the festival itself is a reflection of Bentley, down to the mountain scenery, which accompanies Bentley's latest album, The Mountain -- also hailing from Colorado, just like the festival. While much of country music is associated with the southeast, Seven Peaks Music Festival joins the ranks of Telluride Music Festival, opening up the west as a music haven.
The currently announced lineup for the Buena Vista, Colorado festival includes Elle King, Miranda Lambert, Sam Bush, The Cadillac Three, Del McCoury, LANCO, Brothers Osborne, and of course, Bentley himself, who plans to perform daily during the festival, as well as joining some of the other artists on stage for unique collaborations. Seven Peaks Music Festival will take place August 31- September 2.
