Dierks Bentley’s Unforgettable 1st Seven Peaks Music Festival


From 49 States Descended On The Ethereal Grounds In Buena Vista, CO For
An Unparalleled Lineup Of Music And Three Days Of Adventure

TN – Sept. 4, 2018 – Multi-PLATINUM entertainer Dierks Bentley and the
world’s leading live entertainment company Live Nation ascended 8,000
feet for a seminal experience this weekend, launching the inaugural
Seven Peaks Music Festival. Set against the heart-stopping mountain view
of Buena Vista, CO, fans traveled from 49 states and as far as
Australia, coming together for three days of one of the most-uniquely
curated festival lineups this year.

“It’s going to
take a few days, maybe weeks, for me to process that Seven Peaks
actually happened, and happened at the highest possible level,” said
Bentley. “Everything about this journey was so special, from the initial
seed of an idea, to the last song sung on Sunday night. I couldn’t be
more proud of the team that came together to create this, and the fans
that adopted the festival so quickly and easily, and have made it their
own. Without a doubt I can say this festival is at the very top of any
career achievements I’ve had.”

“It’s been a long journey to get to this day, when we can say the
inaugural Seven Peaks Music Festival is under wraps,” said Brian
O’Connell, President Of Country Touring at Live Nation. “We wanted
everything about this festival to be unique and so that meant that no
stone was left unturned. I’m so proud of Dierks, his team and my team
for this weekend. From the vibe, to the setting, to the first-class
music, it is one we won’t ever forget.” 

Fans and artists arrived Friday, getting the first look at their jaw-dropping home for the next three days, with Forbes noting
“what sets the festival apart is its location.” Bentley greeted campers
as they arrived to the site, and as the first day of music began he
spent the day hopping up on stage, joining Sawyer Brown for a
crowd-raising rendition of “Some Girls Do,” as well as a special version
of “Killing Time” with Clint Black.  With the vibe already set of
a “community-first, play-every-set take on a country festival” (Rolling Stone)
the festivities continued into the night with a special appearance by
Bentley’s own Hot Country Knights and a late night DJ set by AYDAMN at
the festival’s Whiskey Row Stage. 

As the weekend continued, Seven Peaks Music Festival exemplified “authenticity in every component” (PEOPLE),
with fans embracing all the additional adventures on offer, including
white water rafting, zip lining and more, as well as Bentley joining
fans for Saturday’s “Somewhere On A Beach Party,” a daytime gathering
set within the campgrounds where fans could enjoy the “picturesque Rocky
Mountain backdrop” (Billboard) while relaxing
in the water. As a second day of music got underway, there was no
shortage of memorable moments with Bentley taking the stage with Whiskey
Row Stage artist Rapidgrass, and main stage artists Kiefer Sutherland,
Sam Bush and Brothers Osborne. Headliner Miranda Lambert brought the
night to a close with a hit-filled set, sparking hair-raising
sing-a-longs as the community momentum of the festival hit its stride.

Sunday, fans settled in for the much-anticipated finale of the weekend,
starting the day in their campsites and enjoying the friendships made
with their fellow campers. With standout performances across the day on
both stages, Bentley took the stage for his headlining set to a
staggering reaction. Bentley invited many friends to join him for
his full-throttle set including LANCO’s Brandon Lancaster who hopped up
on stage for John Michael Montgomery’s “Sold,” while Trombone Shorty
accompanied Bentley on “Mardi Gras.” Elle King returned to the stage
for “Different For Girls,” who also joined Bentley, The Travelin’
McCourys and Trombone Shorty for a special spin on Johnny Cash’s
“Jackson” and Avicii’s “Wake Me Up,” closing out a memory-filled Labor
Day weekend.
