Vertex Festival Debuts in Colorado This Weekend

Thursday, August 04, 2016
Zach Anderson

Vertex Festival 2016 has certainly managed to set itself apart, far apart from your basic everyday music festival. It's inaugural debut will take place in the beautiful town of Buena Vista, Colorado. This festival is nestled just shy of 8,000 feet above sea level, and surrounded by year-round snowcapped 14'ers. Cottonwood Creek runs through both the campgrounds and the festival itself. Believe us when we say that performing a Google image search will do it no justice until you see it in person.

OTB's Top Five Can't Miss Sets

#1 Odesza

Headlining the Princeton Garden main stage on Saturday night, Odezsa is sure to put on a performance that you won't want to miss. Watch the behind the scenes footage as they get ready to perform at Red Rocks. The excitement to see these guys live raises the hair on our arms!

Odesza: In Return Red Rocks

#2 Gramatik

Gramatik just dropped his new album "Epigram" earlier this year, adding a ton of fresh material to his personal arsenal. Mixing it all together will surely be one of the top performances to see. Maybe if we are lucky he might throw it back to an old school classic like "Just Jammin."

#3 Duke Dumont

With "For Club Play Only 4" fresh out of the oven, Duke Dumont is on a roll. Currently in the middle of a two-month long intercontinental tour, this will be one of four shows in the U.S. before leaving the country. Be sure to catch his live set and sing along to "Ocean Drive" as it will certainly have you moving!

#4 Big Wild

Start the weekend off in the right direction by catching Big Wild live on the Cottonwood Parlor Stage at 4 PM Friday. His incorporation of different musical instruments throughout his performance is something to see!

Goldroom is going to take us into Sunday afternoon from 1 to 3 PM at the Bee Vee Beach Club. I'm calling it now, his second single 'Lying To You' off his upcoming album 'West of the West' (out 9/23/16) is going to be a summer hit!
