Taos Vortex will return for its second year this summer, when the three-day music festival takes place at Kit Carson Park in Taos, NM from Friday, August 16th through Sunday, August 18th. Earlier this week, the event’s organizers shared the full lineup of artists who are scheduled to perform at this year’s event, including George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic, Flying Lotus (3-D set), ZHU, Nick Murphy A.K.A. Chet Faker, and many more.
Some of the notable artists out of the 35 total featured on the event’s 2019 lineup poster include Barclay Crenshaw, Sinkane, Calexico and Iron & Wine, CocoRosie, Empress Of, Goldlink, Lykke Li, Oh Lawd, G Jones, Snail Mail, Justin Martin, Soulection, Desert Hearts, Justin Jay’s Fantastic Voyage, Too Many Zooz, and Wajatta (a collaboration between Reggie Watts and John Tejada), just to name a few.
“Taos Vortex’s immersive environment centers around the diverse neighborhoods and creatures that inhabit them,” event organizers said about the ethos of the event in a press release. “Huts and homes installed around the park invite everyone to step inside, find the neighborhood that suits them, and celebrate the multidimensional weekend of the summer.”
This year’s performances will take place on two stages–The Spire stage, which will be more of a traditional staging setup, and The Glade, “a meadow” where fans can casually hang out and enjoy the performance in a more intimate setting between the fans and artist.
