Denver locals have been looking forward to the grand opening of Meow Wolf‘s multi-million dollar satellite immersive art exhibit for a few years now. However, the Santa Fe-based art company is taking things a step further for Mile High residents.
The company recently announced Dark Palace, a three-night music and art showcase taking over Denver’s National Western Complex from November 22-24. Billed by Meow Wolf as a “dance obscura,” the bass-forward lineup will feature sets from the likes of Claude VonStroke, MK, Guy Gerber, SHADES, Charlesthefirst, Shlomo, Dirt Monkey, and many more, all playing alongside immersive installations from local artists.
“We’re looking forward to bringing the same sense of community we experienced at Taos Vortex to Denver,” said Meow Wolf CEO Vince Kadlubek in a press statement. “We’re excited to share this Meow Wolf event and hope people will join us for the ride as we expand and create our permanent location in the city.”
The idea behind the two-day festival-sized event is to get Denver residents used to seeing the fast-growing company in its backyard before opening its doors soon. Meow Wolf has already invested $60 million on a 20-year lease for its new building on 1st Street. The company is also no stranger to hosting large-scale music events, with the successful Taos Vortex now entering into its second year, along with monthly dance music artist showcases.
