Celebrating it’s 17th year, Michael Hearne’s Big Barn Dance Music Festival boasts a lineup of the best artists in Americana, Folk, Bluegrass, Singer-Songwriter and everything in between. Scheduled for September 5 -7, the festival will take place once again in the heart of Taos, New Mexico at Kit Carson Park. Known for it’s intimate concert hall setting, as well as two dance floors, the Barn Dance is a beloved tradition that music lovers and two-steppers alike look forward to year after year.
Over the past 16 years, the Big Barn Dance stage has hosted both legendary songwriters and young up-and-comers.
A listening room experience in a festival setting, this event has an atmosphere unlike any other. With a large tent and two covered dance floors, the festival is a phenomenal experience whether you’re enjoying the beautiful mountain sunshine or a refreshing New Mexico rain. Enjoy the seated listening room setting throughout the weekend. Then on Saturday evening, the chairs are cleared and the tent becomes the finest dance hall in New Mexico.
With restaurants, lodging, shops and local art galleries just a short walk away from the festival grounds, attendees not only get to experience incredible music but explore the vibrant culture unique to Taos.
