High Desert Experience


COVID-19 Update

With current events changing our world we are here to announce the postponing of this year Monolith on the Mesa . We know this will not come as a surprise to many of you, as many festivals 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 behind the scenes which required a lot of decision making 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 our state has put restrictions on public gatherings til June, and the town of Taos has cancelled events thru Labor Day. We have made September 25-26-27 2020  to be our reschedule date.

Monolith on the Mesa is a dream that you and our sponsors help make come 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.

Of course you can also return them and get your money back if you can not make it to the rescheduled dates. Now, more than ever, we would need your understanding and would be thankful for your support by keeping your tickets.

Of course you can also return them and get your money back support@holdmyticket.com
