Dierks Bentley hopes to throw a fun-filled party in Buena Vista, Colorado, when his inaugural Seven Peaks Music Festival kicks off later this August. Joining the already star-studded lineup is Clint Black, Sawyer Brown, Terri Clark, David Lee Murphy, and Bentley’s own band, Hot Country Knights, as a special ’90s night extravaganza.

The newly announced artists join previously announced acts such as Miranda Lambert, Brothers Osborne, Elle King, Dan + Shay and more. Black, Brown, Clark, Murphy and the Hot Country Knights will all kick the festival off on Friday, August 31, with what Bentley calls the “Hot Country Night.” The night is designed to be a tribute to the 90’s country music era that many fans obsess over.

“I couldn’t imagine getting to help plan my own festival and not having my favorite country music from the 90’s represented in a big way,” said Bentley. “These guys are the constant soundtrack for me and the band backstage on the road, and I’m beyond excited they agreed to kick this thing off on Friday night with us. I’m counting the days…I hope they let me jump up and sing with them!”

Bentley also planned to hold the weekend-long “Somewhere on a Beach Party,” in which fans will be able to take advantage of the festival’s scenic venue by jumping in the water with their friends or by staying on the beach to play games while DJ AYDAMN spins tunes all weekend long.

The Seven Peaks Music Festival combines Bentley’s love of the western U.S. and music, and fans can purchase passes for the festival at
