VORTEX 2020 PREVIEW
Get a sneak peek of the upcoming Vortex Music Festival with live music performances and bites from the PLAZA DEL TORO kitchen. Proceeds from featured beverages and silent auction benefit Vortex. Fifty years ago, Vortex made a bold statement about the values of a new generation. Vortex 2020 is a renewal of those commitments to build community, practice tolerance, and preserve our natural resources. Instead of charging a fee for entry, Vortex 2020 reimagines the typical music festival by requiring attendees to earn their ticket through volunteerism in official service projects in their communities.
