Meow Wolf has officially dropped the Taos Vortex 2019 lineup and this is something you will not want to miss. For the second installment, the arts and entertainment company are creating a three-day immersive experience held Friday, August 16th through Sunday, August 18th in Taos, New Mexico. This year is set to be bigger and better than lasts featuring thirty-five artists over the weekend.
This year will feature acts such as Lykke Li, Claude VonStroke, Goldlink, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Justin Martin, Flying Lotus 3D, Barclay Crenshaw, CocoRosie, ZHU, Nick Murphy FKA Chet Faker, and many more. The music will be focused on two main stages, The Spire and The Glade. The Spire is a citadel art structure whereas The Glade is a meadow for a more intimate performance. Taos Vortex is set to have something for everyone's taste.
Billed as an immersive festival, Meow Wolf encourages participants to explore the different neighborhoods, huts, and homes that are around the park to find what fits them. You can create art, float down the Rio Grande, even hot air balloon offsite.
Max B.K, events director for Meow Wolf, said:
“We look forward to returning to Taos in support of their local economy and have a weekend lineup of musical artists that share in the sense of adventure. These are artists who are unafraid to push the envelope and experiment. We are delighted to be hosting the groundbreaking Flying Lotus 3D show, the iconic P-funk ringleader George Clinton, the fierce talent of Empress Of, and sibling freak folk from CocoRosie. We’ll also have performances from our favorite electronic stars, including the incredible Reggie Watts/John Tejada live project, Wajatta, electronic mysticism from Zhu, takeovers from the Desert Hearts and Soulection crews, booty-shakin’ house from DIRTYBIRD ring leader Claude VonStroke, and the genre-destroying Mija.”
The festival is set to be located in the historic Kit Carson Park. There will be onsite camping available for purchase. Each campsite has a communal tent for bonding, along with a camp brunch. Passes may be purchased for the entire three-day weekend or for single day attendance. Early bird tickets sold out in five hours so plan accordingly.
