Meow Wolf Concerts
In addition to general admission tickets for exploring, you can also attend concerts at Meow Wolf locations. We have been to concerts at Meow Wolf Denver, so we have the insight to share there. However, our team has never attended concerts at another location. We hope to in the future though!
Generally, concerts are held inside rooms on the lower level of Meow Wolf Denver. Each time we attended, there were different graphics projected on the walls, which makes it interesting to watch. However, it is not like the rest of Meow Wolf’s installations.
It is possible to rent out the entire space though…
We went to a concert in Meow Wolf in the beginning of December 2022. A music label rented out Meow Wolf Denver and held 3 concerts inside the space and 1 concert in the normal room. It was magical!
Walking freely from room to room was probably the most fun part. While we couldn’t go everywhere, we could explore much more than we expected.
If there is ever another multi-stage concert at Meow Wolf it is a do-not-miss event.
