SAN LUIS VALLEY, Colo. (KRDO) — In a few weeks, country music fans will flock to the San Luis Valley for a country music festival created by one of the genre’s biggest stars.
Dierks Bentley is bringing back its Seven Peaks music festival after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic. In previous years, the festival was held in Buena Vista. This year, however, it’s happening at Villa Grove.
This week, KRDO’s Riley Carroll got the chance to sit down with Bentley virtually and chat about the upcoming festival.
During this interview, Bentley explained that Colorado was his favorite place this time of year. He said he loves performing in the Centennial State and can’t wait to greet festival-goers at the gate.
This year the venue is near a lake that people can enjoy before the music. Bentley strongly encourages everyone to camp on site. He said it was the best way to have the full experience and some of the best memories were made at the campsite.
When asked what he was looking forward to, Bentley said he was excited to perform songs like “5-1-5-0” with a live crowd again.
“Songs like that work better with a crowd,” Bentley remarked.
Watch Bentley’s full interview below, he talks about the festival, why he loves Colorado and performs here.
The festival takes place over Labor Day weekend, September 2-4. Passes start at $219.
