Music-lovers and adventure-seekers, we welcome you to enter the Vortex! Meow Wolf is bringing its outdoor festival experience, Vortex, to The Junk Yard, a brand new, open-air venue in the heart of Denver this August 5th, 6th, and 7th, 2022.

Headliners include Toro y Moi, Duke Dumont, Pabllo Vittar, Channel Tres, 100 gecs, Bladee, Dixon, Sad Night Dynamite, Bob Moses, Boy Harsher, Neil Frances, and Maya Jane Coles. See the full lineup below.

Previously held in Taos, New Mexico in 2018 and 2019, the festival is back after a two year hiatus. This year, Vortex is going to be held at a brand new location.

What else is new this year? Meow Wolf Vortex veteran, Sofie Cruse, says to “expect a Vortex unlike one you've entered before. Experiential chill areas, two stages, magic music and a totally different container. We are delighted to invite you to something familiar but NEW and in a city Meow Wolf adores.”

Two stages of multi-genre entertainment in a dynamic outdoor setting, with food & drink trucks, experiential art, and unexpected performances await.

Meow Wolf Senior Creative Producer and festival legend, Marsi Gray, describes the festival as the “connective tissue that weaves the community together and gives us more opportunities to connect with one another in a deeper way.”

Vortex is dedicated to making a positive impact through hiring locally, supporting sustainability initiatives, and uplifting marginalized groups. Check out how to get involved with Vortex’s local initiatives here.
