Editor's Note: This article has been updated to include the location of Vortex 2022, which had been kept secret before being revealed on June 16th, 2022.
Meow Wolf's Vortex festival is officially headed to Denver.
The event, which originally started in Taos, New Mexico, is produced in partnership with Live Nation and will take place August 5th to 7th. In addition to the move, organizers have also announced a huge lineup, with headliners Neil Francis, Duke Dumont, Toro y Moi, Bob Moses, 100 Gecs and more.
Didi Bethurum, Meow Wolf's Vice President of Marketing, told the Santa Fe Reporter that they've relocated to Denver due in part to the notion that their audience is expanding. This year's Vortex festival in Denver will feature two stages, live performers, food and drinks trucks, and experiential art installations, among other interactive experiences that have made the arts production company such a hit.

"We are excited to partner with the amazing team at Meow Wolf to continue to push the limits of the live music experience here in Denver," said Live Nation Colorado's president, Eric Piritt.
Last year, Meow Wolf joined forces with Moment Factory to bring a trippy music experience to Denver's Convergence Station. GRiZ and CloZee performed at the event's kaleidoscopic "Perplexiplex" venue.
However, Vortex, which has been dubbed an "immersive outdoor festival," won't happen at Convergence Station this year. According to a press release shared with EDM.com, the 2022 event has been confirmed to take place in a brand new, open-air downtown Denver venue called The Junk Yard. The three-day outdoor festival experience will be the first event at the space.
