A student event staple will soon return to campus for the first time since 2019.

Thousands of students will gather on Johnson Field in less than two weeks for The University of New Mexico’s Fiestas, a music festival for students hosted by the Associated Students of UNM Student Special Events. UNM Fiestas is scheduled to take place Saturday, April 1 from 12 to 9 p.m. on Johnson Field.

The event, which is free and open to anyone with a UNM student ID, is one of the largest music festivals in New Mexico and one of the most popular student events at the University.

This year’s 8-act lineup will include Cheat Codes, Binki, Indigo Waves and other performing artists.

Food trucks will be available to purchase from on-site. Free parking will be available to event-goers at the Yale Parking Structure.

UNM’s Fiestas dates back to as early as the 1960s and initially started as a three-day rodeo. Over the years, it has morphed into a music festival including games and food vendors.
