The festival just announced headliners Alabama Shakes, ODESZA and more, and here at 94.3 The X, we're stoked to see familiar names like Houndmouth and Robert DeLong on the lineup.


In a press release, Vertex Producer Jeremy Stein said the following:

'Music, art, great food, the outdoors, and the best of Colorado culture will all meet at this amazing festival site to create Vertex. This will be 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.'

Tickets for Vertex go on sale March 25 (12 p.m. MST) and a portion of proceeds will help benefit local school music programs in Buena Vista, Colorado.
