The inaugural installment of Vertex — the newest grand-scale festival in the state, put on by the state’s largest concert promoter AEG Live and their partners at Madison House Presents — will no doubt be one of the biggest lineups of the summer. Hosted on a recently revitalized working ranch close to downtown Buena Vista, Vertex is boasting a one-of-a-kind event created by Coloradoans who care about community first. As such, Vertex will help pay for Buena Vista public schools honor band and choir travel expenses to competitions and festivals across the state during the 2016-17 school year, and will help support the purchase of new band and choir performance uniforms, in addition to working with Chaffee County and the Town of Buena Vista to begin the development of a long-awaited community garden.
