Dierks Bentley‘s Seven Peaks Music Festival is returning once again this year, with an all-star lineup to celebrate its return. The three-day event, which takes place in Buena Vista, Colorado on Labor Day weekend, celebrates both the rising stars and the country music legends, with Keith Urban, Kip Moore, Old Crow Medicine Show, Randy Houser, Hot Country Knights, Clay Walker, Travis Denning, Ingrid Andress, Mark Chesnutt and Pam Tillis among the performers.
“Getting the green light to book artists and plan our third annual Seven Peaks was the single best piece of news I’ve gotten in the last year,” Bentley says of the festival. “It is my favorite weekend of the year, and I know every fan and artist that has been there will tell you the same. It’s the only time my band and crew ever show up to a gig a week early too…because we can’t wait to be out there with our friends and fans soaking up the Colorado sunshine and mountain vibes.”
Bentley previously announced that he and his family had relocated to Colorado at the start of the pandemic. What was intended to be a brief getaway turned into a permanent move, when the Bentleys fell in love with their more laid-back lifestyle that Colorado offers.
“I went out there with my family for spring break in March and just never left,” Bentley told People. “I put my kids in school out there and we just kind of moved.”
“I’m making up for lost time with my family,” he continued. “It’s been 18 years now of touring and being gone every weekend. Now I’m somewhere I can ride bikes with my kids to school. I put a camper on the back of my 1994 Chevy and we go camping almost every weekend.”
Bentley will take a break from his Beers on Me Tour, which includes Riley Green and Parker McCollum as his opening acts, to host his Seven Peaks Music Festival. Other performers at the Seven Peaks Music Festival include Molly Tuttle, Caitlyn Smith, Hailey Whitters,Callista Clark, Jackson Dean, Ray Fulcher, Willie Jones, Caroline Jones, Rapidgrass, Reyna Roberts, Payton Smith and Aydamn. Three-day passes will be available beginning on June 18. Find more information at SevenPeaksFestival.com.
