The 2015 Meadow City Music Festival in Las Vegas, New Mexico, will host nineteen local and regional entertainers on two stages Friday, August 21 through Sunday, August 23.

Most of the performers playing the Festival received musical training here at Highlands University or started their first band in Las Vegas venues.

Others are still playing here. Cascabel, a headliner and a crowd favorite, began as a Las Vegas, NM, band in the 1970’s, becoming immensely popular over northern New Mexico. As they explored other musical ventures, they dispersed across New Mexico, Colorado, and California. This year, Cascabel will enjoy a musical reunion on a Las Vegas, NM stage again at the Festival.

The Meadow City Music Festival believes that “music is for movers and shakers.” There will be lots of toe-tapping rhythms to entice Festival guests onto their feet and dancing, either partnered or just moving solo to the beat.

In addition to musical offerings, Festival guests can make a monoprint, taste delicious local cuisine either in city restaurants or catered at the Festival, tour recent downtown Las Vegas building renovations, or visit landmarks that were part of Fred Harvey’s civilizing of the west. There are special attractions for children, too.

Entertainment at the beautiful, shaded Plaza Park is free during the day, including performances by all the headliners. Evening performances at the renovated historic Serf Theatre are limited, so get tickets for those events early.

Several businesses have partnered with the Festival to offer special lodging rates for festivalgoers. For more information about the entertainment schedule, tickets, and overnight lodging, go to
