Monolith On The Mesa comment:

With current events changing our world, we are announcing that Monolith on the Mesa must be postponed. We know this will not come as a surprise to many of you, as festivals around the world have made, and will continue to make, the same difficult choices due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This was not an easy decision, and there has been much to work on behind the scenes which required a lot of consideration before we could make this announcement. We want to let you know that we tried our best to bring you a fun, safe event, but sadly the state of New Mexico has put restrictions on public gatherings until June, and the town of Taos has cancelled events through Labor Day. We’ve decided to make September 25-26-27, 2020 our new dates.

Monolith on the Mesa is a dream that you, and our sponsors, help bring to life. Having to move the festival dates has been an emotional and financial  rollercoaster. We wouldn’t exist without our amazing community of supporters. Ticket holders can keep their tickets. They will remain VALID for MOTM 2020 or 2021. Thank you to all of you that showed us your trust and supported us by buying a ticket for 2020 already.

Now, more than ever, we would need your understanding and would be thankful for your support by asking you to please hold on to your tickets. However, if you cannot make it to the rescheduled dates, please contact us to resolve your refund at

If you have any questions regarding VIP packages (see your email inbox for a message from us) or contact

As far as the lineup is concerned, we are working to try and keep everyone on board and will have more info posted on social media leading up to the festival.

Thank you so much for your understanding, support, and kindness in this uncertain time.

Please stay home and stay safe and healthy. As we know that many questions remain unanswered, we will do our best to respond to all your queries in the coming days.

Stay Safe,

Dano, Roman, and the entire Monolith crew
