Taos Solar Music Festival



For me this was a great way to start my vacation. The Taos Solar Music festival is a weekend event full of you guessed it, music. Saturday's headliners included Lyle Lovett and Los Lobos. I was only able to go on Sunday and for me it was the best day. The headliner for that day was Michael Franti. Overall it was a fun day of music,food, sunburns and crowd watching. Until the next festival.

I like the tipis in the background! Looks like great fun. Lyle Lovett is such a funny character but a good musician. Glad you had a good time.

What a way to start your vacation. Lyle Lovett and Los Lobos always put on a good show. Lawn chairs or Blankets on the ground make for great seats. Looks like it was fun for all!

I had some friends that went to this- kinda wish I could have gone. Is that the stage? How cool to see such great artists in a smaller venue. Happy Vacation Randy!!! Sounds like it's been a long time. Enjoy every moment!

Saw Los Lobos opening for Mellencamp. Fun show! Iwould love to see Mr. Lovett and that BIG sound.

Ouch for the sunburn but that indeed sounds like it was a fantastic day!

I love Lyle Lovett! Have seen him here at an outdoor venue on a warm summer night - one of my favourite memories. John Prine was there too - fabulous!

Sharon said...

That looks like a fun way to spend a Sunday!

All I can say is that between Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico seems to be one partying state!

Jack said...

I love outdoor concerts in the summer. I would have been there with you

Kate said...

Lovett is a terrific musician. Never could figure out how he and Julia Roberts got together; since their marriage didn't last very long, I guess that they could't figure it out either!
