The first round of performers has been announced for this year’s Elevation Beaver Creek, the highly anticipated event combining music, wine, and adventure.

Born from the success of Live In The Vineyard (LITV) and Live In The Vineyard Goes Country (LITVGC), Elevation will officially return to Colorado from October 1-3, 2023. The three-day experience is set to feature stunning mountain views, exquisite wine pours and intimate performances by an exceptional lineup of artists that spans a variety of genres, including Americana, AAA, and Country.

Elevation recently announced that the select group of prominent names will include Billy Currington, Michael Franti, and Brian Kelley.

In addition to these established artists, Elevation Beaver Creek will also showcase up-and-coming talents, who will provide captivating and genuine performances among the stunning Colorado landscape. This list includes Coffey Anderson, George Birge, Jordana Bryant, Liddy Clark, Alex Hall, John Hollier, HunterGirl, Ryan Larkins, Stephanie Quayle, Jobi Riccio, Josh Ross, Dylan Schneider, Matt Stell, and The War and Treaty.

“Our carefully chosen artists will deliver authentic performances, while attendees immerse themselves in the beauty of Beaver Creek, making this a truly unique experience,” said Bobbii Jacobs, President of FF Entertainment. “As we reveal the first round of performers, I couldn’t be more excited about the diverse lineup that will leave a lasting impression on all attendees.”

Several of these named artists have already taken to social media to express their excitement for the upcoming event. 

HunterGirl wrote, “So excited for this!! 🤍” while Jordana Bryant said, “gonna be fun!!! ☺️☺️”

“Can’t wait!” added Alex Hall. 

In the recent announcement, Elevation also revealed that additional information regarding more artists and event news will be coming soon. 

Elevation strives to create a space for artists to collaborate on stage in an easygoing manner fueled by adventure. At the same time, guests have the opportunity to exchange thoughts and share their love for music in a secluded environment among culinary delights and uniquely curated activities, sometimes led by the artists themselves.  

Last year’s group of performers were quick to share their excitement for the chance to reconnect with nature while also showcasing a glimpse into their impressive catalog.

“I think for me, to get to a place where I can kind of feel connected with nature, always helps me mentally,” Brett Eldredge shared with Country Now ahead of his 2022 Elevation performance.

Stephanie Quayle exuded the same appreciation as she said, “When I think about what we get to do for our living and the fact that we get to be this beautiful location in Colorado…I’ve never been here, I’m from Montana originally, so to be this close to my stomping grounds is really fun.”

She continued, “This is such a reunion for us artists and especially coming off being away from what we love to do for so long, this is like the utopian version between all the great companies that are involved.”

According to a recent press release, Elevation strives to bring elements of Napa and transcend them to other hand-selected markets, and locations that exemplify Zen and beauty and where the artists and industry can embrace the local culture. Artists’ interests and passions are also a focus within the event, intertwining exploration into the programming with select artist-engaged adventures, such as hiking, skeet shooting, golf outings, and more.

Like LITV and LITVGC, in-person attendance at Elevation is limited and will only be open to invited industry guests, including music supervisors, radio programmers, label executives, and corporate partners from around the country. In addition to the Elevation main events, private VIP performances are exclusively held for select groups.
