Desert Daze returns October 12th – 14th for it’s 7th annual celebration of music, art, culture and nature, featuring Phase One confirmed artists, Tame Impala, Death Grips, Mercury Rev performing Deserter’s Songs to celebrate the 20th anniversary, Warpaint, Ty Segall & White Fence, Malcom Mooney of Can, Connan Mockasin, and Chelsea Wolfe with more headliners and additions to follow. Cited as “a chance to escape the world as we know it” (Billboard) and a “a surrealist’s playground that reminds us what festivals were like before festivals were Festivals™” (Noisey), Desert Daze 2018 brings its unique brand of hermetic fantasy universe to Moreno Beach, in the Valley of the Unbroken Horizon, at Lake Perris, in Southern California.

This year, inter-dimensional transmissions have summoned Desert Daze to a new location. Lake Perris, nestled between the San Jacinto and San Bernardino mountains in Moreno Valley, features a beautiful lake, hundreds of acres of natural wonders, several species of local wildlife, desert and costal sage, brush, & cacti. RV and tent camping will be available in well-maintained state park facilities, including real showers and real restrooms, RV power and water hookups, nature walks, and for the first time, an Italian style beach club with lounging, swimming, sunbathing and boat rides. Desert Daze 2018 will be an enveloping, self-contained world, but a short drive to the modern conveniences of civilization.

General Admission and VIP pass options go on sale Friday, March 30th at 10am Pacific Standard Time. Visitor (or General Admission passes) start at $249. Camping and lodging experiences will also be available for purchase through a new user platform via Eventbrite, that allows fans to easily navigate and quickly find the option that works best for them.

“a surrealist’s playground that reminds us what festivals were like before festivals were Festivals™”
“Can Desert Daze be America’s Answer to Glastonbury?”

“A cross between a mini-Glastonbury and the dearly departed All Tomorrow’s Parties”

“For its sixth annual outing, Desert Daze confirmed its ever-growing reputation as a cosmic playground par excellence”

“It’s become a southern California staple and that doesn’t look to change any time soon.”

“Now in its sixth year, Desert Daze has grown into a well-oiled hidden gem of a festival”

“Desert Daze has restored my faith in festivals.”

“Proof that reports of rock’s death have been greatly exaggerated”

“The success of Desert Daze came at a crucial time for the music community, and it’ll easily go down as the festival of the year.”

“It was truly a, well, spiritual experience that seemed to be speaking to all of us, reminding that in this horrifying time of division and hatred, love is real.”
