The Seven Peaks Festival will be back in Colorado this Labor Day weekend!
In case you missed last year's event, here's a great recap from Rolling Stone, with a bonus article from the Taste of Country, labeling Dierks as the "most accessible headliner" ... we would have to agree!
DBCers found a public notice from Chaffee County earlier this year discussing a "public hearing [on Feb. 5] ... for the purpose of considering a Special Event Permit request from Live Nation Country Festival" with the event to be held at Buena Vista over Labor Day weekend. That could only mean one thing, right?
An announcement one way or the other was on the horizon ... we're just so grateful this was the outcome!
Of course, Dierks pulled together one of his favorite bands--the Hot Country Knights--to help announce the news:
Oh, Steve Misamore, you are truly hilarious! Add Dan Hochhalter with his selfie mode and Cassady Feasby with his hairspray, and this is one unforgettable announcement! If this is any indication of what's to come for this festival, we wouldn't miss it! Only 195 days to go ...
While artists, ticket and camping details have not yet been released, last year's tickets went on sale in mid-April. We should know more in the next few weeks.
However, there is one website addition we did notice this year on the contact page! Has anyone else contacted Dierks?
Stay tuned and in the meantime, visit sevenpeaksfestival.com!
