10 Reasons To Attend Meow Wolf's Taos Vortex 2019

| July 15, 2019

Taos Vortex will be coming back for it's second year this August 16-18th, 2019. As a brainchild of Meow Wolf, we expect it to be nothing short of whimsically amazing. If you have heard anything about the magical adventure that is known as Meow Wolf, you know to expect an immersive and unique experience.

Meow Wolf is a creative conglomeration that has rapidly emerged from Santa Fe, New Mexico in the past several years. The group as been seeing exponential movement and success as many flock to support. Santa Fe is is the home of their gallery and venue space that attendees travel cross country to experience and attend shows. 

Looking to expand to Las Vegas, Denver and Washington D.C, Meow Wolf has started its expansion with Taos Vortex - we are beyond excited to see how this collective of ingenious creators change the way in which we relate to art. We picked 10 reasons you should make it out to Taos Vortex.

 

10. Desert Hearts Takeover

The eccentric group that has come to be known as Desert Hearts runs on a platforms of House, Techno and Love. After years of renegade, intimate desert parties, Desert Hearts began paving the way for these special family-oriented gatherings around the world. House and techno have long since been the core roots of electronic music and the evolution of the sound as well as the experience are continuously being revived and uplifted. Catch the full experience on Sunday at Taos Vortex.
