“Location is really important for this festival, right? It’s a Colorado based festival and it needs to feel like Colorado. It’d be a lot easier to put it on in Denver at the football or soccer stadiums there, where other bands do, but I wanted, you know, a lot of fans coming from all over the country that had never even been to Colorado. So, we want to make sure it feels like Colorado. So it has to be a little further away from Denver, and Buena Vista wass a great town. We obviously had to cancel in 2020, and we had some differences of agreement about whether the show could have gone on in ‘21 or not. We felt like it could have, but they’re a smaller community and had some, um, just taking a more cautious approach. So, I had a friend that has a place we’re going to be in Villa Grove, he’s been talking to us the last few years trying to get us, take a look at his site, and we used last year as an opportunity to look at it. It’s, you know, another 40 minutes down the road, the same road that the last festival was on the same location, same just 40 minutes down the same highway. And it’s a great spot and there’s no more issues with, you know, help with the folks, the town councils. So, because he owns the spot, and Villa Grove’s really excited to have us in town and easy to fly into Colorado. It’s a great location. And then we just had a massive line-up and to have a Morgan Wallen and Hardy and Lainey Wilson and Travis Denning and Jordan Davis and bluegrass bands like the infamous String Dusters, who I love, Grammy award winning bluegrass band, and Rapid Grass. And of course, of the 90’s, folks, it just feels like it’s a, you know, it’s our best shot at giving this festival the best chance we can have to really get off the ground.”
