Meow Wolf announces its first music fest, in Taos

SANTA FE – High profile musical acts like The Flaming Lips and Dr. Dog are part of the lineup for Meow Wolf’s first music weekend “experience.”

Weekend passes for the two-day festival August 3-4 at Kit Carson Park in Taos go on sale Friday. Lower-priced packages will be available later this month.

In addition to the musical acts, Taos Vortex will also include performance art, art installations and camping for guests ages 21 and over.

Guests can also pay for access to the Dance Tent, which from 10 p.m.-1 a.m. both nights will feature electronic music. The musical acts, also including electronic band Thievery Corporation and “chillwave” singer-songwriter Washed Out, will play from the early evening until about 10 p.m., according to a Tuesday news release. The release says camping will include “unique experiences, chill zones and installations for the campers.”

Meow Wolf, whose immersive art installation in Santa Fe has been such a hit that spinoffs are being built in Las Vegas, Nev., and Denver, will also “coordinate off-site adventures such as rafting, hiking with llamas, and riding horses.”

Pass prices range from a $69 single day pass to a weekend pass with camping and Dance Tent access for $199. The lineup schedule for both days will be announced May 22. Taos Vortex is being organized with AMP Concerts.
