Meow Wolf will hold its Vortex music festival in what’s now an industrial lot in Denver’s Sun Valley neighborhood, ending speculation as to where the signature public event would take place when it comes to town for the first time this year. It will be the first event held at The Junk Yard, which is a brand new open-air downtown venue that will be run by music promoter Live Nation.

The spot, at 2323 Mulberry Place, about a mile south of Meow Wolf’s permanent immersive installation, Convergence Station, in an industrial neighborhood just east of I-25. The event, Aug. 5-7, will include three days of all-ages music, food trucks, and other entertainment, Live Nation said in a statement last week. The Denver-based mega promoter described the owners of the property as “friends of the family of Live Nation.”

Publicists for Meow Wolf and Live Nation didn’t immediately respond to questions about the venue’s capacity — or who the “friends of the family of Live Nation” are.

“The new owners of The Junk Yard saw a great opportunity to transform a scrap metal yard into a multifaceted musical festival site in the heart of the city,” the statement reads. “The new venue will undergo a dramatic metamorphosis to become another world for Vortex 2022 — a transition that is common for many Meow Wolf events and activations — with two stunning stages (Viscera Stage and the Atria Stage), art installations … and comfy chill zones.”
