Chaffee County Approves New Festival Permit For Madison House/AEG

BUENA VISTA, Colorado (CelebrityAccess) — Chaffee County Commissioners on Tuesday approved a special event permit for a major new music festival outside Buena Vista, despite concerns from some members of the community.

According to CBS, the 4-day, 20,000 capacity music festival is being produced by Madison House and AEG, and is slated to take place from August 4 – 7.

Some community members expressed concerns over local river safety, traffic and the burden the festival might impose on local infrastructure.

“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 its core, is a community seeking fun, exploration, and common ground. This is the inauguration of a magical Summer celebration,” said Madison House Presents President Jeremy Stein in a statement on the permit approval.

Last year, Madison House staged the successful Mumford & Sons Gentlemen Of The Road event, a two-day festival set in nearby Salida, Colorado. – Staff Writers
