The 2015 Meadow City Music Festival will open in Las Vegas New Mexico Friday August 21 and run through Sunday August 23, utilizing two stages – the beautiful shaded Plaza Park for daytime performances and the renovated historic Serf Theater for nighttime performances.
Nineteen performances will entertain. Most performers got their musical start in Las Vegas New Mexico, with musical training at Highlands University or in their first band. Others are still performing in Las Vegas New Mexico.
For instance, Cascabel, a headliner throughout the Festival, was a Las Vegas New Mexico band in the 1970’s, immensely popular all over northern New Mexico. Then they dispersed across New Mexico, Colorado and California. Now to come together again at the Meadow City Music Festival in August.
Come share the music of Las Vegas New Mexico with us.
The Meadow City Music Festival believes that “music is for movers and shakers” so we will do everything possible to get our Festival guests on their feet and moving. These are performances for dancing, not concerts.
Besides enjoying music, you can make your own monoprint, eat local restaurant food either in our restaurants or catered at the Festival, tour the most recent downtown Las Vegas New Mexico building renovations, or tour the buildings that were part of Fred Harvey’s civilizing the west. And there are things for kids too.
While there is plenty of free daytime music in the Plaza Park, including all the headliners, tickets for evening performances are limited. They will be available on line in May. Several lodging properties are partnering with the Festival to offer special rates for festival goers.
