People of Colorado and festival lovers alike, rejoice! The American state is all set to host what promises to be a massive, full-fledged music festival, curated by the force behind the famous Electric Forest, and it’s called Vertex!
Come August, the new 3-day camping festival will have big shoes to fill. Vertex is headed by Madison House Presents, the same people that produce one of Michigan’s finest electronic music festivals, Electric Forest. The dates and initial lineup have been announced: Vertex is scheduled for August 5-7, and it’ll happen at Cottonwood Meadows in Buena Vista.
In an interview with ThisSongIsSick, the President of Madison House Presents Jeremy Stein had this to say: “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 the festival’s core, is a community seeking fun, exploration, and common ground. This is the inauguration of a magical Summer celebration.”
Some big acts have been announced in the lineup: ODESZA, Seven Lions and Duke Dumont are only three names from a very versatile Phase 1 lineup! The rest of the artists are as follows: Anderson Paak & The Free Nationals, Badbadnotgood, Big Wild, Classixx, Dawes, Dopapod, Fruition, Graham Nash, Hiatus Kaiyote, Houndmouth, Jai Wolf, Robert DeLong, Rufus Du Sol, Ryan Hemsworth, Sunsquabi, The Claypool Lennon, Delirium, The Revivalists.
From the looks of it, if all goes well, this upcoming festival is going to be off the chain! Stay tuned for more updates on this!
