Madison House & AEG Live Granted Permit For Colorado Festival


As previously reported, Madison House Presents and AEG Live revealed plans for a four-day 20,000 person capacity music festival on a ranch outside Buena Vista, Colorado this coming August 4 – 7. Local Chaffee County commissioners have voted to grant a permit for the inaugural event, which will feature a lineup of artists that could be announced within weeks.

According to Reverb, local officials today voted to approve Madison House Presents plans for the multi-day festival. The report includes a statement from Madison House Presents president Jeremy Stein, which read:

Today is the start of something very special in Colorado, and we are excited to honor the approval we have received from the Chaffee County community. Participation in the permitting process, from many voices in the community, have created a true collaboration. We aim for this festival to be a mighty source of Colorado pride. The setting is stunning, the music will be amazing, and the art will inspire. At its core, is a community seeking fun, exploration, and common ground. This is the inauguration of a magical Summer celebration.

Last year Madison House Presents successfully staged the Mumford & Sons Gentlemen Of The Road two-day festival in nearby Salida, Colorado. Initially, this year’s four-day festival was set to go until 1 a.m. on the first and last day and until 2:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, but organizers and county officials agreed to reduce each ending time by one hour. If this year’s just-approved festival is similarly successful, plans are for it to become an annual event.
