The four-day music festival, Vertex, that takes place in Colorado has come to a close, just one year after the debut festival took place.
Madison House, the event producer behind Vertex, decided not to push through for another year. The Denver Post cited the reasons for not pushing forward as “mounting frustrations between festival organizers, the commissioners of Buena Vista’s Chafee County, and residents of the county caused huge hurdles for the festival.” However, some citizens were not distraught by the festival, saying Vertex brought consumer spending to Buena Vista.
Madison House did receive the permit for Vertex 2017. The approval, however, came with caveats: noise constraints and an earlier curfew. Commissioners also rejected Madison House’s request for a three-year permit.
There is some good news for Vertex. The door is still open for 2018. Madison House plans to re-apply for a three-year permit again next year.
