Today, Colorado jam outfit The Magic Beans have announced the initial lineup for the 2018 edition of their Beanstalk Music & Mountains Festival. The host band will perform all three nights of the Rancho Del Rio festival, which will take place from June 28th through 30th in Eagle County, Colorado.
Beanstalk Festival joins together the awe-inspiring beauty of the Rocky Mountains and Colorado River with a live music experience of some of the top touring and local acts and musicians. In addition to The Magic Beans’ host sets, this year’s initial lineup includes headlining performances from Horseshoes & Hand Grenades and Aqueous, in addition to the Beanstalk All-Star Superjam featuring Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner of The Disco Biscuits, Dave Watts of The Motet, Matt Jalbert of TAUK, and more.
The down-bill for Beanstalk Music & Mountains Festival 2018 is equally impressive, with performances by Octave Cat, a side project featuring Jesse Miller of Lotus, Eli Winderman of Dopapod, and Charlie Patierno; Ghost Light, the highly anticipated new band featuring Holly Bowling, Tom Hamilton, Steve Lyons, Raina Mullen, and Scotty Zwang; Cory Wong of Vulfpeck; and Colorado’s own Eminence Ensemble. The initial lineup rounds out with sets by Mungion, Cycles (x2), Lespecial (an original set and a “Lespecial Does Primus” set), Anoramora, Yak Attack, The Jauntee, and more.
After multiple successful years, the intimate festival has become renowned in Colorado as one of the can’t-miss events of the summer. In addition to a consistently stellar lineup and slow-flow, Yin, and Kali Durga yoga offerings, Beanstalk’s prime location along the banks of the Colorado River allows attendees to enjoy the outdoors—including hiking, hot springs, cliff jumping, ATVing, and world-class mountain biking—before the music starts in the mid-afternoon.
