About a month ago, Madison House, the festival geniuses behind Electric Forest, gained permits to hold a festival in Colorado, and ever since then rumors have been swirling and anticipation was building for an official announcement. Now we finally have a name, dates, and an initial lineup, and it’s amazing. Odesza, Alabama Shakes, and Trey Anastasio Band headline a diverse roster that includes Duke Dumont, Jai Wolf, and Rufus Du Sol. They’re certainly bringing the Electric Forest vibes to Colorado, and with more artists and details to come, it’s only going to get better. Check out the full initial lineup below, and get ready to dance summer away in Colorado this August.


Vertex Festival takes place at Cottonwood Meadows in Buena Vista, CO August 5-7. Tickets go on sale March 25 here.
