Already tapped as one of the hottest music festivals this summer by Billboard and Entertainment Weekly, multi-PLATINUM entertainer Dierks Bentley and the world's leading live entertainment company Live Nation announced further details for their upcoming inaugural Seven Peaks Music Festival today. The action-packed, three-day and multiple-stage festival will get the party started on Friday, Aug. 31 in Buena Vista, CO with Hot Country Night featuring performances by Clint Black, Sawyer Brown, Terri Clark, David Lee Murphy and special guest Bentley’s own Hot Country Knights. Bentley exclusively broke the new details with Rolling Stone in a medley video of the Friday night lineup’s timeless hits. Watch the video here or downlaod to share it here.

“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!”

A weekend-long Somewhere On A Beach Party was also revealed, taking full advantage of the scenic festival’s setting with a daytime soiree on the water. Campers will be able to bask in the Colorado sunshine while floating with their friends, as well as enjoying daily drink specials and beach games with DJ AYDAMN keeping the festivities going all-day long. Passes for the Labor Day weekend (8/31-9/2) destination experience are available now and due to demand more Summit VIP passes have also been made available at sevenpeaksfestival.com.

Today’s announcement follows the news that Seven Peaks Music Festival’s first year will offer one of the most eclectic lineups of 2018, previously revealing friends Miranda Lambert, Brothers Osborne, Elle King, LANCO, Del McCoury, Sam Bush and The Cadillac Three as the first announced artists to play, as well as recent additions to the main stage including Dan + Shay and just revealed acts Lucie Silvas and Kiefer Sutherland. Like his upcoming studio album THE MOUNTAIN, which is available this Friday (6/8), Seven Peaks Music Festival was inspired from Bentley's love of The West. A bucket list experience, fans will be able to enjoy the unique vibe of the festival from the comradery-filled lineup to the community atmosphere as well as the late-night jams and surprise guests, while the jaw-dropping beauty of the collegiate peaks mountain range provides the perfect homegrown feel for camping under the stars.

About Dierks Bentley:

Dierks Bentley has built a reputation as both a forever-young drifter and a dedicated family man, put in millions of miles on headlining tours and taken the fearless stylistic detours of a truly authentic artist. He continues that journey with his highly anticipated ninth studio album, THE MOUNTAIN (Capitol Records Nashville), set for release this Friday, June 8th. Reaching a new creative high, Bentley co-wrote 10 of the 13 new tracks that are unified by themes of presence and positivity, and range in style from textured rock to acoustic folk, feeling both rooted and expansive at the same time. The Arizona native has scored 17 No. Ones and 13 GRAMMY nominations – including at least one stemming from each of his last six albums. Bentley has amassed more than one billion digital streams, countless additional nominations from the GRAMMYs, ACM, CMA and Billboard Music Awards. He “continues to be a crowd favorite" (Kansas City Star) while bringing an "energy-packed atmosphere" (Washington Post) to venues and amphitheaters throughout the country on his 2018 MOUNTAIN HIGH TOUR.
