Festival Description

Soul music originates from depth of experience and lives in its ability to connect to others. Vail Soul Music Fest taps into that spirit – with an unparalleled alchemy of mood and grooves and a breathtaking natural backdrop with wide-open skies. A premier international mountain town destination on its own, Vail Soul Music Fest offers an intriguing excuse for Colorado city dwellers and out-of-state visitors alike to descend on Vail Village for an exceptional soul experience getaway. Says Rhonda July, “A lot of people ask – why Vail? It’s an awe-inspiring setting, and really lends to providing a truly unique experience void of distractions.” July continues, “Colorado is rated the 5th most prolific arts scene in the Country, and quite frankly is still lacking events in the soul genre, despite plenty of interest and support.” Vail Soul Music Fest is for Colorado’s many music savvy residents, and for music fans all over the country looking for an ultimate soul music experience. Come for the uplifting music, great company, tasty food choices, world-class spa facilities, a huge variety of outdoor activities, and so much more.
