The inaugural Vertex Festival took place in Buena Vista over the weekend. The three-day event featured a diverse music lineup, bringing electronica, rock, folk, hip-hop, jam and bluegrass acts to perform on three outdoor stages.

Highlights included Southern rock 'n' rollers Alabama Shakes, Seattle electronic duo ODESZA and veteran folk-rocker Graham Nash. The lineup also spotlighted a number of Colorado-based artists, such as Zach Heckendorf, Robert Delong and Trout Steak Revival.
