Beanstalk Music Festival Announces 2017 Dates, Will Return To Rancho Del Rio Site

first_imgThe Beanstalk Music & Mountains Festival, hosted by the event’s namesake The Magic Beans, has announced that it will be returning once again to the majestic Rancho Del Rio Vail Valley after a successful first go-round at the site this past summer. Beanstalk organizers have confirmed the event will take place the weekend of June 22nd-25th, 2017, and feature a bevy of activities outside of what is sure to another top-notch lineup, including swimming, tubing, whitewater rafting, hot springs, and miles of hiking/biking trails. There is nothing quite like a Colorado music festival.The Magic of Beanstalk Festival: Supergroups & Collaborations In The Rocky MountainsLast year’s lineup saw The Magic Beans host acts such as Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, The New Mastersounds, Electron, and several solid super jams and collaborations, one of which being “The Magic Brownies,” which witnessed The Disco Biscuits’ Marc Brownstein led a supergroup which consisted of Tom Hamilton, Allen Aucoin and Beans members Scott Hachey and Casey Russel. Expect more of the same this year.Festival Director Ryan Noel discussed, “We couldn’t be more excited to return home at Rancho Del Rio. It’s what the fans wanted and what we wanted in 2016 but couldn’t make it work. We worked hand in hand with Eagle County to ensure we were able to return for 2017. No more shuttles! All the music will take place at Rancho which we’re thrilled about as well. Our ‘Early Bean’ tickets sold out in 48 hours so it’s looking like we’ll have consecutive sell-outs at Rancho as the capacity is super limited. We’ll be announcing artists in a few weeks in 2 waves as well.”And check out The Magic Beans perform two late-night shows in NYC on Dec. 30th and 31st post-Phish at American Beauty, with fellow up and comers Spafford (get tix for the 30th here, and 31st here).For additional festival information, click here.last_img read more
