Live music, psychedelic vibes, starry nights, and a beautiful view is what awaits concert enthusiasts at this year’s Desert Daze Music Festival.
The increasingly popular festival is back again with its third installment taking place on April 26 at the Sunset Ranch Oasis in Mecca, Ca.
The 163 acre ranch is surrounded by mountain ranges and has three full lakes and will be the festival’s home for the second year in a row.
This year’s lineup includes great bands like Coachella Music Festival veterans Blonde Redhead and The Raveonettes whose Whip It On album was named “Best Rock Album of the Year” at the Danish Music Awards in 2003.
The Festival will also feature live performances by Liars, Autolux, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Vincent Gallo, DIIV and many more.
Desert Daze serves as the less inexpensive alternative to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and provides concert goers with a more psychedelic ambiance.
“I’m thinking of checking out Desert Daze this year, the tickets are pretty reasonable and I think I’ll end up having more fun enjoying the live music there than at Coachella since it tends to be more crowded and expensive,” said music goer Caren Inda.
Guests will be able to wonder freely around and get lost in a collective of music sounds generating from the several stages that are set to be placed around the property.
Moon Block Party, founded in 2001 by Phil Pirrone is a community of artists who collaborate together to produce several music festivals including Desert Daze, which was first established in 2012.
The first Desert Daze Festival took place in Palm Springs back in 2012 and lasted 11 days and the following year it became a one-day one-night music event.
“Desert Daze seems like a cool and secluded place where you could get away with friends where you could just hangout, listen to some good music and dance the night away and you get to camp out which only makes it that much more fun,” said Inda.
Concert enthusiasts don’t have to worry about dealing with long lines or overpriced drinks but can lay back and relax as they take in the beautiful scenery and good tunes.
The festival is known for its intimate and serene setting making it the perfect place for artist and music lovers to come together as they enjoy an explosion of music.
Onsite camping will be available for the one day and one night festival with tickets ranging from $45 general admission to $100 General Admission and Shaded Beach Park n’ Camp.
Desert Daze will also include various merchandise booths and food vendors to complete the music event.
Tickets are now on sale on desertdaze.org and concert goers are encouraged to buy their tickets now before they sell out.
