Dierks Bentley took the forthcoming album promotion cycle for The Mountain to new heights (pun intended) with the announcement of the Seven Peaks Music Festival. The Labor Day weekend (Aug. 31- Sept. 2) event brings Bentley's friends from the worlds of country and bluegrass music to Buena Vista, Colo. for a multi-stage music and camping experience.
Live Nation and Bentley put the event together. So far, the lineup includes potential headliners Miranda Lambert and Brothers Osborne, Bentley collaborator Elle King, country bands LANCO and The Cadillac Three and bluegrass veterans Del McCoury and Sam Bush. Expect additional acts to be confirmed in the coming months.
"It's no secret that I love everything about Colorado...the fans, the venues we've played and of course, the landscape," Bentley said in a press release. "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."
While the market seems over-saturated with festivals, this event's location offers an enticing alternative to the usual city park shindig.
"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," said Brian O'Connell, President of Country Touring at Live Nation, in a press release. "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."
