As inspired by his upcoming record, The Mountain, Dierks Bentley will escape to the ridges of Colorado for the first-ever Seven Peaks Music Festival hosted by the singer and Live Nation.
Bentley found light during his time spent writing and recording out in the wilderness for his anticipated release, and wanted to commemorate that same inventive feeling for fans by putting on a weekend of concerts for them to breathe in the fresh mountain air. Pushing for an experience like no other festival held during the summer months, Bentley feels as though this jamboree will change the game for country music and other genres.
“This is a dream come true for me. 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.”
Some of the artists lined up to perform at Seven Peaks include Brothers Osborne, Miranda Lambert, Elle King, LANCO, The Cadillac Three, Del McCoury and Sam Bush. Others will soon be announced in the coming weeks.

Hinting at the news right before dropping the announcement, Bentley participated in a polar plunge challenge of some sort by dunking his head under the frigid waters of a river in the great outdoors. Calling the forested area, “a good spot,” it looks as though the singer made his location choice based on a natural gut instinct.
The inaugural Seven Peaks Music Festival will be held in Buena Vista, Colorado, over the Labor Day weekend from August 31 to September 2. Passes for the festival will go on sale on Friday, April 20, at 10 a.m. MST through the Seven Peaks website.
