The 5th annual Desert Daze has metamorphosed and emerged from its chrysalis reborn, harkening back to what music festivals once were, while illuminating the future of what music festivals can be.
For the love of music, culture and celebration, Desert Daze is creating an event that celebrates the music you love: not a “music festival”, but a “festival of music.” Relocating to the evocative and otherworldly Institute of Mentalphysics in Joshua Tree, California, Desert Daze will be three outdoor stages of incredible live music, an indoor space for alternative programming (speakers, workshops, Q&A’s, audio / visual performances and more), vendors, bars, food trucks and an indoor diner.
At this intentionally limited capacity event, attendees can stay in deluxe on-site cottages designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and son Lloyd Wright, sleeping 2 to 7+ available to rent for the weekend, in addition to RV, car, and tent camping across the joshua-tree studded landscape.
