Festival Nrmal and MtyMx Bring the Noise to Mexico
- Words: Thomas Rees
Within a week-long period in March, two festivals of epic proportions will be taking place in Mexico's lovely city of Monterrey (pictured above). First up is the Festival Nrmal, which features XLR8R favorites such as YACHT, Daedelus, White Rainbow, Toy Selectah, and many more. With the aim of providing Mexican fans the opportunity to see groups they wouldn't otherwise get a chance to see perform, the day-long festival is certain to be packed. What's more, a week later, New York's Todd P and Mexico's Yo Garage are hosting the MtyMx festival, a three-day event featuring Acid Mothers Temple, Neon Indian, Tanlines, and Telepathe, and so many other groups that it's a bit mind-boggling, except when one considers that SXSW is going on during the same period. Still, both festivals promise to deliver an amazing musical experience to an eager public in one of Mexico's most beautiful cities.
Festival Nrmal happens on March 13. For more information, visit the event's site.
MtyMX happens from March 20-22. For more information, visit the event's site.
