For this inaugural year, VERTEX will be working with CHAFFEE COUNTY and the TOWN OF BUENA VISTA to begin the development of a long-awaited community garden. In addition, the festival’s MUSIC IN SCHOOLS program is partnering with BUENA VISTA’s public schools to help provide funding for their middle school and high school music departments. More information on both programs is available here.
VERTEX is produced by BOULDER, CO-based MADISON HOUSE PRESENTS (MHP) and AEG LIVE ROCKY MOUNTAINS. MHP is responsible for the GRATEFUL DEAD’s recent FARE THEE WELL 50th Anniversary Celebration, MUMFORD & SONS GENTLEMEN OF THE ROAD U.S. Stopovers, the ELECTRIC FOREST festival in ROTHBURY, MI, and many more.
MADISON HOUSE PRESENTS President and VERTEX producer JEREMY STEIN commented: “Music, art, great food, the outdoors, and the best of COLORADO culture will all meet at this amazing festival site for a one-of-a-kind event, created by COLORADANS who care about community first. Our state has been waiting for a long time for a festival like this. We aim for BUENA VISTA and CHAFFEE COUNTY to be proud, for COLORADO to celebrate, and for the national eye to sharpen its focus on this very special state.”
Nestled in sprawling rangeland 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. COTTONWOOD CREEK runs through the campgrounds and the festival site itself.
