Last year, Monolith on the Mesa marked its debut as a new festival featuring doom, stoner rock, psych rock, ect. Set in the majestic atmosphere of the sacred desert, what better place to drink beer, listen to great music, buy artwork, and meet new friends?
This year the fest is back and keeping it intimate with a limited 1500 ticket count. The organizers want people to feel comfortable, relaxed and small. The venue includes indoor and outdoor spaces on the ground of Hotel Luna Mystica vintage trailer park. Vintage trailers are available for rental as well as plenty of camping spaces. On the grounds lies Taos Mesa Brewing Mothership which is where the bands will be playing. Be sure to try the craft beer and delicious food offerings. Plenty of hiking trails, river rafting, hot springs and bike paths.
Of course we feel the gender quality is a breath of fresh air compared to that of other festivals. Complete lineup is below but we suggest not missing Prism Bitch, Heavy Temple, The Otolith, and MLNY Parsons. The fest is currently looking for vendors, interested parties can contact them via the website.
3 days will run you about $150 but SOOO worth it!
