The full currently confirmed lineup is available HERE, with additional artists still to be announced.Hosted in a stunning mountain valley setting, Vertex will showcase the best of Colorado. As a community-minded event that merges diverse musical genres, art, and a variety of experiences and outdoor adventures, Vertex promises an elevated experience that takes the U.S. festival and its culture to new heights – Colorado style.
Just a short trip from the Colorado Front Range, Vertex merges the best of worlds to create a present-day frontier where anything is possible. Diverse music, exhilarating outdoor adventures such as whitewater rafting, hiking, and artful fun and games bring people together for an enduring shared experience. Nestled in sprawling range land at the foot of the Continental Divide and surrounded by the year-round snowcapped 14,000-foot peaks of the Collegiate Mountain Range, the festival site is known as Cottonwood Meadows, a recently revitalized working ranch located a mile from downtown Buena Vista, Colorado in Chaffee County. Cottonwood Creek runs through the campgrounds and the festival site itself.
Vertex is produced by Madison House Presents (MHP) and AEG Live Rocky Mountains. Boulder, Colorado based MHP is responsible for The Grateful Dead’s recent Fare Thee Well 50th Anniversary Celebration, Mumford & Sons Gentlemen of the Road U.S. Stopovers (including last year’s event in Salida, Colorado), the renowned Electric Forest festival in Rothbury, Michigan, and many more.
