About Monolith on the Mesa

Monolith on the Mesa is a “High Desert Experience” that is an independent 3 day festival hosted on the grounds of the Taos Mesa Brewing Mothership and Hotel Luna Mystica in beautiful Taos, New Mexico. The festival features a variety of heavy roxk music (Heavy Psych, Stoner, Retro Rock, Sludge, Space Rock, Doom, Drone, etc…) and installation art accompanied by projected visuals around the compound. This year for the 2022 Festival, The Mad Alchemist will be projecting on both stages!

Music inspires art and art inspires music. The festival experience is private and exclusive, capping at 1,500 tickets for an ultimately intimate performance enjoyed on two stages, both outdoors. An “earthship” amphitheater dome adorned with a brand new sound & lighting set up. The newly renovated patio stage sits right next to the amphitheater only a few steps away.

No bands will be missed while rotating acts throughout the day.

The festival is a perfect getaway, offering attendees the unique and mystical Taos experience! Enjoy a weekend on the breathtaking high desert mesa, surrounded by unobstructed views of the Sangre de Christo Mountains.
