Another reason to make Taos your destination is the annual Taos Solar Music Festival, now in its 14th year. This summer's festival is scheduled to take place on June 30 and July 1 at Kit Carson Park, in downtown Taos. Music lovers of all ages will be treated to such noted performers as Lyle Lovett, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Los Lobos, and more. Each days' events begin in the early afternoon, with the headliner bands (Lyle Lovett on Saturday, June 30 at 7:30pm and Michael Franti on Sunday, July 1 at 7pm) finishing up the day. Be advised to be prepared for a day in the sun, with hats, sunscreen and refillable water bottles. The show will go on whether rain or shine, so you will want to be prepared for stormy weather as well as descending temperatures as the sun sets. For added comfort, bring lawn chairs or blankets.
Kids under 12 are admitted Free.
One Day Pass is $51, Two Day Pass is $91.
