Marfa Myths is this weekend!
We’re excited to share that we’ll be collaborating with Marfa Myths, The Lot Radio, and Dublabagain this year.
Marfa Myths is an annual music, visual art, and film festival founded in 2014 by Brooklyn-based record label Mexican Summer and contemporary arts nonprofit Ballroom Marfa.
During Marfa Myths, the two organizations bring together emerging and established musicians and visual artists to work creatively — and collaboratively — across disciplines. Marfa Myths presents performances and exhibitions in unusual venues across the surreal West Texas landscape, attracting guests from all over the world.
Here’s what you should know:
