ZHU, Flying Lotus, Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, and more will head to New Mexico this summer for Meow Wolf’s Taos Vortex Festival!


After its successful debut that was full of immersive interactive art, Meow Wolf has announced that they will bring their Taos Vortex festival back to New Mexico for its sophomore installment. Set to return on August 16-18, attendees will travel to Kit Carson Park in Taos for another weekend of art, music, and full-sensory experiences that are uniquely Meow Wolf in all the best ways.

Along with the opportunity to enjoy hot air ballooning above the breathtaking Taos Gorge, guests will be able to get down to some of the hottest names in the music scene throughout the festival. Today, Meow Wolf announced a lineup full of industry stars, such as Dirtybird’s Claude VonStroke and Justin Martin, funk-master Goldlink, the ever-elusive ZHU, girl boss and genre-defyer Mija, and a special 3D, hologram-filled performance from Flying Lotus.

House music lovers can also look forward to takeovers from the Desert Hearts and Soulection crews which are sure to provide fresh, toe-tappin’ beats all weekend. Other notable names include G JonesJustin Jay, and Medasin who will also be can’t miss sets!

Along with this exciting array of artists, the lineup features even more fresh talent that you’re not going to want to miss. Plus, if you’re at all a fan of immersive experiences and if last year’s 20-foot-tall gorilla and peacock are any indications, this festival is going to be bursting at the seams with some amazing art.

Both camping and non-camping tickets for Taos Vortex are available now via its website. Grab yours today, RSVP to their event on Facebook for updates, and don’t miss out on experiencing this unique festival!

Sydney attributes her love for music from her mom, who insisted on playing The Foo Fighters and The White Stripes rather than Kiss FM whenever she drove carpool and agreed to allow Sydney to attend Coachella in the eighth grade as long as she could go with her. That first festival only greater affirmed Sydney’s passion for the scene, but it was not until 2013 when she attended Swedish House Mafia’s One Last Tour concert in Los Angeles that she discovered electronic music. She was hooked instantly and has since attended a total of 23 festivals, with countless concerts in between. Sydney’s favorite artists include RL Grime, Jauz, Jai Wolf, Louis The Child, Slander, Bearson and Big Gigantic but she is constantly on the look out for new music and artists to dance to. When she’s not scouring the internet for new tracks or grooving at a concert, Sydney studies Journalism and Biology full-time at the University of Oregon.
