Monolith on the Mesa

Saturday night’s headliner Wino of The Obsessed comments:

“Music is the universal language, and as emotion’s companion invokes thought, feeling and awareness. We are excited and honored to be invited to perform at this gathering, and we hope to see a lot of friends, fans and family out in the gorgeous environs of Taos, New Mexico.”

Lisa Bella Donna of EYE adds

We are truly looking forward to being a part of Monolith on the Mesa. Since improvisation is a big part of the overall picture EYE paints with our music, we’re very inspired to take everything in while we’re there, and to circulate that momentum.”

Monolith on the Mesa festival founder and curator Dano Sanchez commented:

“This location is highly unique and vastly different than anyplace else I’ve ever witnessed live music,” “Our location at the base of the mountains and at the edge of the Rio Grande gorge sets our festival apart. Taos Mesa Brewing is a far out venue. From the Taos Pueblo to the Gorge Bridge we’ve got amazing activities in the vicinity like rafting, hiking in the desert or in the mountains, mountain biking, soaking in the natural hot springs, not to mention visiting all the cool establishments in Taos. It is truly a magical place and combined with awesome music and art it’s going to be like no other music festival around today.”

The festival features an indoor stage (400 people capacity) and an outdoor “earthship” amphitheatre which holds 1,500 people. This allows an intimate experience for guests and performers. Music will begin daily at 11:30 am and will alternate between the indoor and outdoor stages. Hotel Luna Mystica is located adjacent to the venue and offers guests camping and the exclusive “Monolith Experience” in the form of a custom, vintage trailer park. Vendors can be found on both properties and will include artisans, record labels, food trucks and more.
