The music scene in Colorado has long been acclaimed for its excellent venues, warm crowds and beautiful landscapes, but until now, the state has yet to host a fully functioning music festival to compete with rest of the country’s largest events. This coming summer, however, all of that may change.
In a recent report made by ThisSongIsSick, new information has indicated that the state will be receiving its very first major festival in August of this year. Madison House Presents, the event organizer responsible for none other than Electric Forest, has just acquired the necessary permits to host a four-day event on a 274-acre ranch on the west side of Buena Vista – a town just southwest of Denver. The permit is signed for August 4-7, 2016, the week following Basscenter.
In a statement made by company president Jeremy Stein, the festival is framed as something to be excited about and proud of by the area’s dedicated music and event supporters.
“Today is the start of something very special in Colorado, and we are excited to honor the approval we have received from the Chaffee County community. Participation in the permitting process, from many voices in the community, have created a true collaboration. We aim for this festival to be a mighty source of Colorado pride. The setting is stunning, the music will be amazing, and the art will inspire. At the festival’s core, is a community seeking fun, exploration, and common ground. This is the inauguration of a magical Summer celebration.”
