Trans-Pecos Festival 2015

Fellow cosmonauts, prepare for the 10th Annual Trans-Pecos Festival of Music + Love at El Cosmico.

September 24-27, 2015

A group of intrepid wanderers convene at El Cosmico for a weekend of live music, sandlot baseball, workshops, art installations and more in the majesty of Marfa, Texas. We invite you to join us.  Festivalgoers can expect the same alchemystical blend of music, art, baseball, friends and more under the big sky. To get excited, check out some great images of last year's festival by photographer Alysse Gafkjen here.

Do Stuff

Activities will abound at this year’s party. Make something, root for your team, buy a souvenir for a friend.

Here are a few highlights – more to come as party time nears:

WORKSHOPS: Learn a new talent at one of the many workshops available during the festival. See the list and sign up here - check back often as new workshops are being added.

EL BEISBOL SANDLOT: Austin’s Texas Playboys vs. Marfa’s Los Yonke Gallos. An epic sandlot baseball rivalry continues. Saturday at noon. Hot dogs. Beer. Squirrel Friends.  Can only be experienced - definitely a party highlight regardless of your stance on sports.

EL COSMETICO: Back by popular demand. Just because you are camping doesn’t mean you don’t need a massage. Check back soon for advance online booking of your transformative treatments.

AND MORE: Shop our vendor area, hang out and listen to an afternoon DJ, or just spend some time in our hammock grove. We've got a solid mix of activities and opportunities to do absolutely nothing.

LUNARIA TAROT: Olivia Pepper is a wandering mystic who has been reading Tarot cards since she was a child. She has been the resident card reader at Hotel San Jose for three years and is looking forward to offering her unique divinatory services to those attending Trans-Pecos Festival.

El Cosmico Provision Co. Yeti & Shiner
