Dierks Bentley is taking his music to a higher place this summer as he launches his inaugural Seven Peaks Music Festival.
The three-day festival will take place over Labor Day weekend (Aug. 31–Sept. 2) with multiple stages and a campground set in front of the Rocky Mountains in Buena Vista, Colorado. In addition to performing several times over the weekend, Dierks has curated a lineup that will include Miranda Lambert, Brothers Osborne, Elle King, LANCO, Del McCoury, Sam Bush and The Cadillac Three.
Like his upcoming ninth studio album, The Mountain, the Seven Peaks Music Festival was inspired by Dierks’ love of the West.
“This is a dream come true for me,” says Dierks. “It’s no secret that I love everything about Colorado . . . the fans, the venues we’ve played and of course, the landscape. 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.”
More artists will be announced in the coming weeks. Three-day passes for the festival will go on sale on April 20 at 11 a.m. CT.
