| HOTEL IMAGES|

We are able to offer rooms on Saturday 3/20, Sunday 3/21, and Monday 3/22, at these rates:

Private Room w/ 1 Double Bed = $35 per room per night
Private Room w/ 1 Kingsize Bed = $40 per room per night
Private Room w/ 2 Double Beds = $45 per room per night

To reserve a room, simply send an email to mtymxhotel@gmail.com with the type of room/bed you are looking for and which dates, both in the subject line.

We will reply to confirm the reservation within 48 hours, with payment instructions.

You MUST book these rooms via MtyMx, Fundador is not accepting reservations through their front desk during these dates.

| ONSITE CAMPING AVAILABLE, WITH TENT RENTAL |
MtyMX is proud to offer 2 person tents, onsite @ Autocinema Las Torres. for $20 per night. You must provide your own sleeping bag.
| TENT IMAGE |

We are able to offer tents on Saturday 3/20, Sunday 3/21, and Monday 3/22, at $20 per tent per night.

Tent city will feature a late night bar, 24 hour security, a place to check your backpacks, and a security fence separating Tent City from the rest of the site, with controlled access.

To reserve a tent, simply send an email to mtymxtent@gmail.com with which dates you are looking for in the subject line.

We will reply to confirm the reservation within 48 hours, with payment instructions.

You MUST book onsite camping via MtyMx, we will not allow camping without a reservation.

| EASY BUS TRAVEL TO & FROM AUSTIN, TEXAS |
The festival will also be providing a reduced cost shuttle bus service from Austin to Monterrey and back.

Tickets are $29 each way. To reserve a seat on the bus, simply send an email to mtymxbus@gmail.com with the exact departure and return you're looking for in the subject line.

The first bus will be an "after bar red-eye" bus leaving Austin at 2am on Friday night/Saturday morning. Buses will run every 4 hours, 24 hours a day, with buses leaving at 6am, 10am, 2pm, 6pm, 10pm, and 2am daily. The last bus will leave Austin for Monterrey at 6pm on Monday.

Monterrey to Austin buses will begin running on Saturday night/Sunday morning at 2am and will follow the same 6am, 10am, 2pm, 6pm, 10pm, and 2am schedule, with the last bus headed from Monterrey to Austin at 6pm on Tuesday.

The trip takes approximately 6 1/2 hours, but we are accounting for an 8 hour trip time in case of delays.

There are also several commercial companies who offer the same route from Austin to Monterrey every hour or so for around $48 each way.

Turimex Internacional - 512.707.1115?
Autobuses Americanos - 512.928.9237
Autobuses San Luís - 512.320.0104
Autobuses Conejo - 512.912.8282
Autobuses García's - 512.326.5443
Transportes Matehuala - 512.236.1219
Transportes Rodríguez - 512.481.0309
Transportes Tejanos - 512.444.5454
Transportes Pegasos - 512.441.7575
Transportes San Miguel - 512.926.1709
Autobuses Adame - 512.851.2909
Tornado Bus - 512.754.2155
Greyhound - 512.458.4463

We make no claims about quality of these private companies' service, though they are by-and-large reputable, professional companies. In many cases it is cheaper and quicker to take a bus to the border at Laredo / Nuevo Laredo, then walk across the border, take a taxi to the Nuevo Laredo bus station, and buy a ticket onward to Monterrey there.

| DRIVING YOUR OWN CAR INTO MEXICO |
Driving into Mexico is not difficult, however you must register your vehicle with Mexican authorities at the border for a cost of roughly $70 per vehicle.

It is prudent (though not legally required) to purchase vehicle insurance that covers your car in Mexico. This will typically cost about $30 for the week. Short term Mexican vehicle insurance policies are widely available on the internet.

In the last 10 years, the Mexican federal government has embarked on a freeway-building spree including toll highways directly from the border crossing at Laredo to Monterrey. You will find it's a modern and efficient drive, with gas stations and 7-Elevens nearly every mile.

Fly into Laredo for $200 and change, rent a car and drive 45 miles to Monterrey. Its a lot easier than the Austin bus.

This is going to be an amazing fest.

make sure to rent your car in Nuevo Laredo (right across the Rio Grande on the Mexican side of the border) though, US car rental companies don't let you drive your car across national borders.

US car rental companies don't let you drive rental cars into Mexico.

But the same companies have offices in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico for driving in Mexico.

4:31/Annon you can use my name if you'd like. I post it freely. (insert snark here..you're awesome)

The dynamics are slightly differnt with this show that's all. Im sure lots of kids will be pretty high (or trying to get shit over there) ... language barrier ..completely different set of laws ... and/or concert safety regulations ( I didn't research so yes, just a possiblility)

It will be a little more difficult (for some) to differentiate between cool peeps and the ones that mean to do harm.

It's unfortunate, but I do feel that many will blindy go down there without thinking about certain elements that could be new/dangerous to them.

Yes I live in New York City (born/raised here) and have been to and love Mexico very much (not for spring break)

Anyway, even if this post raised the awareness levels of one or two people going, the abuse here is worth it (and pretty harmless :)

How come no one is talking about passports? What if some random hipster teen gets on this bus without a passport? Will they just leave them at the boarder? Or what if they loose their passports while at the fest, will they be allowed re-entry??

Will there be cell phone service at this location in the middle of no-where?

This sounds like a total shit storm!

have fun!

Posted by Anonymous | February 20, 2010 5:57 AM

hey 5:57, there's a whole thorough section on toddpnyc.com about passports and the border.

don't you think they'll be asking for passports before they let anyone on the bus? that's not exactly rocket science.

seems like they're taking the logistics pretty seriously actually, dunno why you just presumed the worst. if you read what all they've compiled, it sure looks like they've given the important particulars some serious consideration.

Posted by Anonymous | February 21, 2010 11:50 PM

from the sound of you guys's really informed commentary about Mexico and all the "banditos" it supposedly has... I have to conclude that I'd be super impressed by the number of Hollywood B-movies you've watched where dumbshit college kids go to Mexico.

Nice research, what can you tell me about inner city crime? Have you seen Boyz in the Hood or Colors lately? I gotta go to Los Angeles and I wanna know what it's like...

so, you guys are ugly Americansat best, xenophobes at worst. Kinda borderline racist too...

just sayin!

and you'll have to explain to me how a tiny trickle of a couple hundred hipsters crossing the border is going to raise the eyebrows of these "banditos" that supposedly prey on foreigners down there... and these kids will stand out from the thousands and thousands of South Texas high school and college kids crossing every night to get drunk and buy pills in what way, exactly?

Posted by Anonymous | February 22, 2010 12:51 AM

actually, 12:51, there hundreds of thousands of open minded travelers (myself included) who travel all around Mexico every year. And I'm not talking Cancun and Acapulco.

There are a lot of people who don't believe caricatures and stereotypes, and we take 2nd class buses, eat street food, stay in $7 hotels, explore little towns and unfashionable neighborhoods in the DF, day and night.

I have been to Monterrey 5 different times and I can tell you immediately that the naysayers here have never been across the border. They're clearly couch potato ugly Americanos whose idea of a vacation is Orlando.

Monterrey is about the tamest place in Latin America. Anyone who has actually traveled there can tell you that. It's covered in fast food joints, freeways, McMansions, office buildings, rich people driving Mercedes, 7-elevens and Oxxos, bistros and boutiques, public art and contemporary art museums.

There is nowhere in Mexico more safe and Americanized than Monterrey. Why talk out your ass? Frankly, your ignorance embarrasses me as a citizen of the U.S.A.. I want to scream to the rest of the world, "we're not all like these idiots!"

newsflash... that old chestnut "mommy and daddy pay the bills" isn't a get out of jail free, win any argument card.

accusing your debate opponent of being a rich kid is basically blindly shooting in the dark. on what do you base this grand assessment? because they're online? because they like indie rock? because they've -gasp- left the U.S.A.?

some people just like to travel, and make time for it. hence, traveling on the cheap, as your opponent described... you should try it, you obviously could use some education about what the rest of the world is like.

Posted by Anonymous | February 23, 2010 8:56 AM

Mexico is not the third world.

Haiti, Burma, parts of India, most of Africa. That's the third world. There is a huge difference.

Mexico has a higher standard of living and higher per capita income than most of Eastern Europe. It's really quite tame.

It's always so exciting to get to see your favorite bands live in concert. Hotels are usually the place to stay over the night but it's a lot more fun going with a few friends and a tent. You can make a fire and everybody can gather around it and play guitar or sing songs.

It's much more fun to be out there in a tent if you ask me. Camping is always a fun experience.

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.
