Thank God live music is back! And with a super bloom of rescheduled shows and new line ups, Moon Block and Knitting Factory Entertainment are excited to bring back one of Southern California’s most unique musical gems; Desert Daze, a three-day-long music line up filled with rocking bands, mixed-media and eclectic art installations. The music festival will take place in Lake Perris, CA Nov. 12-14.
This year, festival headliners The War on Drugs, Kamasi Washington, Toro y Moi and Japanese Breakfast will end each night alongside a plethora of bands including Devendra Banhart, Andy Shauf, Tim Heidecker & Weyes Blood, Crumb, Yves Tumor, Ty Segall, The Black Angels, DIIV, Kikagaku Moyo, The Budos Band, Moon Duo, Sudan Archives, Deap Vally, La Luz, Sasami, Crack Cloud, SPELLLING, Pachyman, JJUUJUU and Geese, with stage projections from Mad Alchemy.
While attendance and scope of this year’s Desert Daze festivities will be smaller in scale with social distancing measures in place to adhere to Covid-19 safety protocols, festival sponsors are honored to share this unique musical experience with friends and fans. Last year’s festival, like most live events for 2020, was canceled.
“It’s been a long year+ away from the Desert Daze community and we are really excited about seeing the people that make this event so special, and seeing this beautiful, multi-faceted lineup at the lake,” notes Desert Daze & Moon Block founder, curator and JJUUJJUU frontman Phil Pirrone.
Single day tickets as well as 3-day passes are available now along with camping passes and parking passes. For ticket info and more, visit Desert Daze’s website here or follow them on Instagram and Twitter.
