Brooklyn-based record label Mexican Summer and Texas artspace Ballroom Marfa have announced that their annual music and arts festival Marfa Myths is returning for its fifth year in 2018. The four-day event will run from April 12-15, 2018 and will feature musical performances across the city, a recording residency with Cate Le Bon and Bradford Cox, and a visual artist residency by Jesse Moretti.
