Over the weekend, Hennessy swagged out the annual Vail Soul Music Festival in the small mountain town of Vail, Colo. The festival, which is one of the last remaining soul festivals in the nation, is an authentic hand-picked mix of emerging and established artists. This year’s festival featured married neo-soul duo Kindred, Natalie Stewart and Julie Dexter in their first U.S. appearance together, the melodic voice of Algebra and Anthony David, The Brand New Heavies, Allen Stone and Sugar Foot’s Ohio Players.

After hitting the stage, the performers chilled at the Hennessy after party at Vail hot spot BOI where DJ Rich Medina kept everyone dancing. The next morning the festival attendees recovered at the “Hennessy Very Special Brunch” where DJ Lee Farmer soothed any residual effects from the night before.
