More Details On Dierks Bentley's Seven Peaks Festival
More details are rolling in for Dierks Bentley's inaugural Seven Peaks Festival and we could not think of a festival more thought out and perfectly planned than this one.
The festival is scheduled for August 31 through September 2 in Buena Vista, Colorado. Bentley has made it known Colorado is a special place for him and could not think of a better venue for his first Seven Peaks Festival.
Not only is Bentley bringing in the big stars like Miranda Lambert and Brothers Osborne to headline along with himself, he has multiple stage areas that will promote different artists. There will be a beach stage with a DJ playing all of the best summertime jams and the Whiskey Row stage. This stage is dedicated to highlighting new artists and artists Bentley describes as the "lifeblood of the genre." That stage will feature acts Abby Anderson, Boy Named Banjo, Brown & Gray, Cody Canada, Dillon Carmichael, Travis Denning, Walker McGuire, Mipso and Rapidgrass. Perhaps the most exciting part is the first night will be dedicated to the era of country music we love so much. The 90s! Clint Black and Bentley's Hot Country Knights will perform.
“When you’re making a festival that has your name on it you definitely want to include all those elements that make it your own, so having a ’90s night is right up my alley—very me, very my band,” Bentley says. “It’s wild what’s going on with that genre of music. We’ll throw a few of those songs into our set and you’ve got kids — 16, 17 year-olds — that are singing along to these songs that were made before they were born. There’s definitely a resurgence in that area of country music and we’re really excited to be the only festival that has a designated night for that genre.”
Not only is Bentley focusing on the musical acts, he is also focused on fan experience. From making sure the venue can accommodate trailers, RVs, and vehicles to adding more port-a-potties for the ladies, Bentley has thought of it all. He has also made sure sunscreen, ice, and water are easily accessible to all attendees.
It really does sound like Bentley has thought of it all. So what do you need to bring with you? Bentley suggests is “positive vibes and an attitude where you’re open to having a lot of fun. Oh, and beer and ice are essential items.”
