Morgan Wallen, Dierks Bentley to headline Colorado Music Festival

After being canceled in 2020 and 2021, the festival is back with Dierks Bentley, Morgan Wallen and more.

VILLA GROVE, Colo. – Seven Peaks Music Festival returns for a third edition this summer with a star-studded country lineup.

Dierks Bentley and concert promoter Live Nation announced on Wednesday that the artist’s lineup for the 2022 festival includes main names Bentley and Morgan Wallen.

The Seven Peaks Music Festival will also feature main stage performances by Boy Named Banjo, Ashley Cooke, Jordan Davis, Jackson Dean, Travis Denning, Hardy, Kendell Marvel, Ashley McBryde, Old Crow Medicine Show, Caitlyn Smith, Rapidgrass, Alana Springsteen and Lainey Wilson.

“I can not overestimate how much it means to be able to say that Seven Peaks is officially returning,” Bentley said. “We are delighted to have found the perfect new venue for the Villa Grove Festival. We love Colorado, and it was important for us to find a home for this special event that embraces all the magic of state beauty.”

The Seven Peaks Music Festival made its debut in 2018 and returned for another year in 2019. No festival took place in 2020 due to the pandemic and it was canceled in 2021 due to capacity constraints.

The Chaffee County Board of Health had planned to limit attendance to 5,000 against the wishes of festival organizers, who initially sold 6,000 tickets. The original permit submitted by Live Nation required 20,000 spectators.

“6,000? Are you looking for me?” said Chaffee County Commissioner Greg Felt. “You know we have a capacity of 5,000 people, and you’ve already sold more tickets than that? What the hell, Jim?”

“We tried everything to make it happen, but Chaffee County has decided not to lift capacity restrictions,” festival organizers said in July 2021.

In January, Bentley – known for its love of Colorado – opened a new restaurant and bar in downtown Denver. The new restaurant is located on 1942 Market Street across the street from Coors Field.

Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row is described as “American gastropub with award-winning food and drinks, exciting nightlife and a rock’n’roll attitude inspired by Dierks himself.”

“I spend a lot of time in Colorado, so it was definitely the most appropriate next place for Whiskey Row,” Bentley said. “The neighborhood is a great atmosphere to experience Denver, whether you’re local or touristy, and I can not wait until I get back out there and have a cold one in the Mile High City in my very own place.”

Bentley is also scheduled to perform at the Cheyenne Frontier Days on Saturday, July 23rd.
