Colorado’s New Vertex Festival Announces Initial Lineup


The inaugural Vertex music and camping festival will be held in Buena Vista, Colorado August 5 – 7. Today, festival organizers Madison House Presents (MHP) and AEG Live Rocky Mountains have announced the initial lineup for the event.

DJ duo ODESZA, recent Grammy winners Alabama Shakes and the Trey Anastasio Band have been tapped to headline the lineup of over 30 established and emerging acts. TAB will play two sets at the festival. Duke Dumont, Seven Lions, Jai Wolf, Dopapod, Hiatus Kaiyote, Graham Nash, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Houndmouth and The Revivalists are also among the Vertex acts announced today. Additional artists are expected to be added to the lineup in the weeks and months to come.

“Music, art, great food, the outdoors, and the best of Colorado culture will all meet at this amazing festival site to create Vertex,” explained Madison House Presents President and Vertex Producer Jeremy Stein in a statement announcing the event. “This will be a one-of-a-kind event, created by Coloradans who care about community first. Our state has been waiting for a long time for a festival like this. We aim for Buena Vista and Chaffee County to be proud, for Colorado to celebrate, and for the national eye to sharpen its focus on this very special state.”

Tickets for the first-ever Vertex go on sale Friday, March 25 at 12 p.m. MT via the festival’s website. A portion of ticket sales will be used to support the launch of Vertex’s local philanthropic programs. Today’s announcement comes after organizers were recently granted a permit to host the event.
