There’s been lots of background movement over the last couple months for a new mystery music festival in Colorado and today we finally get concrete details! The debut Vertex Festival will be held from August 5-7 at Cottonwood Meadows in Buena Vista.

Vertex describes itself as “an intersection of inspiration, and as a celebration – of live music, of festival culture, of Colorado‚Äôs breathtaking natural beauty, and of the self-expression and pioneering spirit that each of these awaken.”

The initial lineup will welcome ODESZA, Alabama Shakes and The Trey Anastasio Band. Here’s the rest of confirmed acts:

Anderson Paak & The Free Nationals
Big Wild
Duke Dumont
Graham Nash
Hiatus Kaiyote
Jai Wolf
Robert DeLong
Rufus Du Sol
Ryan Hemsworth
Seven Lions
The Claypool Lennon Delirium
The Revivalists

Vertex is being produced by Madison House which is responsibly for the incredible Electric Forest. We think their style and vibe will be a perfect match for this venue in the Colorado Rockies.
