Seven Peaks Music Festival will once again light up Buena Vista, Colo., per an announcement from Dierks Bentley Feb. 15. 
The event, a collaboration between Bentley and Live Nation, will take place Labor Day weekend Aug. 30 to Sept. 1 at the same grounds Vertex was held in the past.
“We love this festival, it’s my favorite thing I get to do. I’m so excited you guys are allowing us to do it again,” Bentley said to his fans via a video on his social media accounts. “A lot of bands, including the Hot Country Knights. It’s gonna be so fun!”  
No info regarding the lineup or tickets has been released yet, but info is being promised soon on the fest’s official website. 
Last year’s edition featured Miranda Lambert, Dan + Shay, Brothers Osborne, Elle King, LANCO, Sam Bush and, of course, Dierks Bentley. 
Colorado seems to be a tricky market for major festivals, as Grandoozy recently announced it was taking 2018 off and Vertex went away after 2016. Live Nation is steady ramping up its presence in the market, with its partnership with Denver’s Soda Jerk Presents last year that gave it reach into the city’s 1,100-capacity Summit Music Hall and 450-cap Marquis Theater. 
Of course, all of Colorado is impacted by Red Rocks Amphitheater, which once again won Pollstar’s Best Outdoor Concert Venue award at the 30th Annual Pollstar Awards. In the past, the venue won the award so frequently it was disqualified from contention and the award was named after the venue.
