For the second consecutive year, Dierks Bentley will bring his Seven Peaks Music Festival to beautiful Buena Vista, CO over Labor Day Weekend. Scheduled for August 30-September 1, the festival returns with an even bigger lineup than ever before.

In addition to a headlining set from Bentley himself, fellow country superstar and former ACM Awards co-host Luke Bryan will headline Saturday night’s set. Joining Bryan during the three-day festival will be performances from Maren Morris, Mitchell Tenpenny, Ryan Hurd, Caylee Hammack and more. On Sunday, Bentley will be joined by his Burning Man Tour mates Jon Pardi and Tenille Townes, plus Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, for a fun night of music.

The Seven Peaks lineup will feature an array of acts from country to Americana to bluegrass with a special highlight of 90’s country on the first night.

“What makes our festival unique I think is I love three types of music really. I love commercial country music, which I do. I love ’90s country music, and I love the bluegrass, acoustic, red dirt scene. I hate to toss it all into one thing but that different side,” Bentley explained to Sounds Like Nashville and other local media recently. “We start off with the ’90s country night and this year Deana Carter’s starting off. ‘Strawberry Wine’ had a big influence on my life. I love that song. I remember exactly where I was the first time I heard it. Tracy Lawrence is going to be there. Unbelievable. Diamond Rio. And Travis Tritt.”

In addition to the classic acts of the 90s, Bentley’s parody band, Hot Country Knights, will be on hand to cause a little ruckus with their hilarious full set.

While Bentley is excited for three-days of fun, he’s also putting in the work to create a memorable experience for both the fans in attendance and the residents of Buena Vista.

“It’s really important to us that the community there we’re not coming in there with a big Live Nation hammer and just decimating a place that most people … I’m not egotistical enough to be like, ‘We’re going to bring a lot of people to your town.’ They’re not there because they want people. The reason I would move to Buena Vista is to get away from the city. They’re not looking for more people to come. So I feel like we gotta be really respectful that this is something they would enjoy and is done tastefully. And we did that,” he said of working with the concerned residents during the festival’s first year.

With the festival planning already underway, fans can gear up for three-days of nonstop music. The Seven Peaks Festival returns August 30- September 1, 2019 in Buena Vista, CO. For more information, visit sevenpeaksfestival.com.
