Two of country music’s biggest names are gearing up to headline one of the summer’s biggest music festivals. In late May, Dierks Bentley announced that he planned to revive his Seven Peaks Music Festival in Buena Vista, Colorado. On Tuesday, Bentley followed that up when he revealed the lineup on Tuesday, June 8.

Bentley will now join forces with Keith Urban as the two will serve as the headliners for the three-day event.

Additionally, Kip Moore, Old Crow Medicine Show, Randy Houser, Hot Country Knights, Clay Walker, Travis Denning, Ingrid Andress, Molly Tuttle, Mark Chesnutt, Caitlyn Smith, Hailey Whitters, Pam Tillis, Callista Clark, Jackson Dean, Ray Fulcher, Willie Jones, Caroline Jones, Rapidgrass, Reyna Roberts, Payton Smith, and Aydamn will also perform.

Bentley’s parody band Hot Country Knights will also perform. They’re included with other bands from that era, including Clay Walker, Mark Chesnutt, and Pam Tillis.

“Getting the green light to book artists. And plan our third annual Seven Peaks was the single best piece of news I’ve gotten in the last year,” Bentley said in a recent release.

Dierks Bentley Looks Forward ‘Colorado Sunshine and Mountain Vibes’

“It is my favorite weekend of the year. I know every fan and artist that has been there will tell you the same,” Bentley said about the event. “It’s the only time my band and crew ever show up to a gig a week early too because we can’t wait to be out there with our friends and fans soaking up the Colorado sunshine and mountain vibes.”

This year’s event marks the third annual Seven Peaks Music Festival which will take place over Labor Day Weekend. Three-day passes go on sale beginning June 18 at 10 a.m. MT. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.

After success in 2018 and 2019, organizers canceled the festival in 2020 due to the pandemic. Bentley, who helps the Live Nation President of Touring plan the event, announced the artists intermittently on his Instagram page. Over a 24-hour period, Bentley covering songs by each artist set to perform. The final clip was of Bentley singing “Love Somebody” by Urban.

“When Keith signed on, that was such a huge thing; that was the ultimate green light,” Bentley said about booking the star. “You’ve got to have that one big country headliner at a country festival. It allows you to do some other fun and really cool things like the ’90s Night and have [bluegrass artist] Molly Tuttle and some other bands that aren’t mainstream country, like Old Crow Medicine Show. That made it feel pretty real.”
