PARTY WITH A PURPOSE

With a fresh take on the conventional festival model, The Polish Ambassador and the Jumpsuit Records family of musicians are thrilled to head back to the expansive beauty of the high deserts of New Mexico!  Jumpsuit Family Gathering leans towards the progressive and unconventional, putting the focus on uplifting art and partying with a purpose. We know that our extended family covets an intimate festival experience, one that fosters connection, encourages participation, and offers education with the promise of invigorating life experiences.

we are onesie

Jumpsuit Records strives for community, to bring people together to celebrate in song and nature. Those of you who were there to experience our first year in Taos know just how much magic we all generated together! With many of our workshops led by the musicians on our line-up we all got to know each other so well and learned so much together. This is truly a grass-roots gathering at its core... it was a common sight to see one of our crew playing their heart out on stage one minute, chopping firewood for the bonfire another minute and then connecting with one another in the crowd the next.
