For those of you didn’t score tickets to this year’s Coachella, we have another festival for you (at least for the second weekend)! Desert Daze will be held on April, 20 at the Sunset Ranch Oasis in Mecca, CA. This is nothing like a dessert, this is paradise. The area is lined with palm trees, two lakes, and surrounded by the beautiful mountain range. Desert Daze is a one day music festival, that has the option of camping out to take a break between the bands, then rest up (or party) all night, for the drive home the next day. Sunset Ranch is two-and-half hours away from Los Angeles and 25 minutes away from Indio.
Musical acts will include local garage-psych bands such as J E F F E R T I T T I ‘ s N I L E, CORNERS, JJUUJJUU, and Dahga Bloom. Psychedelic garage rock is booming in Los Angeles and what better way to listen to heavy psychedelic tunes that listening to it in the desert! Joining them are big bands like the beloved goth queen, Chelsea Wolfe; Saharan musicians, Tinariwen; and Los Angeles dreamy, indie rockers, Warpaint. These are just to a name a few. More bands will be featured during the all-day event!
Not only will there be good music, there will be pop up shops, food trucks, art, and a full bar. Desert Daze is a mecca of great music and good times. The festival is appropriate for all ages, bring everyone to this musically eclectic experience!
