Meow Wolf is bringing its outdoor three-day festival experience back to The JunkYard in Denver, Colorado in August 2023.

Meow Wolf is once again partnering with Live Nation to announce its second year of the festival taking place at The JunkYard in the heart of Denver, which the offbeat arts and entertainment company will dramatically transform into a halcyon multi-stage dreamland.

Brimming with alternative performers, chill zones, experiential art, and an eclectic multigenre lineup courtesy of Live Nation, this is like any other Meow Wolf art: indescribable, and yet on everyone’s lips.

Headliners include GRiZ, Remi Wolf, and more. Fans of GRiZ might remember how the internationally-known DJ and producer played the first ever show at Meow Wolf Denver’s venue, The Perplexiplex, selling out in minutes. See the full festival lineup below.

Produced by a female-run team within the arts and entertainment B-Corp of Meow Wolf, Vortex is dedicated to sparking joy and transformation as well as making a positive impact through hiring locally, supporting sustainability initiatives, and uplifting marginalized groups.
