Earlier today we reported on the names of a few confirmed bands for the new music festival happening near Buena Vista this summer August 5-7, 2016. Organizers of Vertex Festival have now released the full initial lineup for the fest's inaugural iteration, which features headliners ODESZA, Alabama Shakes and two sets by the Trey Anastasio Band.
Based on those three headliners, it seems the festival aims to bring together the fan bases that Denver is known for with EDM, progressive- and Americana-influenced jam bands and contemporary rock. The rest of the initial lineup, listed below, reflects this apparent goal of targeting diverse audiences.
Tickets to the Madison House Presents- and AEG Live-produced festival go on sale Friday, March 25, at 12 p.m. MDT at vertexfestival.com. General-admission tickets start at $199.75.
