Desert Daze will celebrate its 7th-annual event from October 12th to 14th. Today, the festival announced its “Phase One Transmission” of confirmed artists led by headliner Tame Impala. Other artists include Mercury Rev performing Deserter’s Songs to celebrate its 20th anniversary, Warpaint, Ty Segall & White Fence, Malcolm Mooney of Can, Connan Mockasin, and Chelsea Wolfe.
This year, notably, Desert Daze will be heading to a new venue, Lake Perris, which is nestled between the San Jacinto and San Bernardino mountains in Moreno Valley, roughly 1.5 hours southeast of Los Angeles. In addition to RV and tent camping, the new site features access to state park facilities including real showers and restrooms, RV power and water hookups, gorgeous scenery, and “an Italian style beach club with lounging, swimming, sunbathing and boat rides.”
Tame Impala, the massively popular Australian psych-rock act, made news recently when they were announced as a headliner for this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival. The group last performed in the United States—well, they last performed at all—when the band headlined the Panorama Music Festival in New York City last July. The Australian rockers’ set marked only their second U.S. date of the year, which made sense considering they planned to take a bit of a hiatus in 2017.
General Admission and VIP pass options for Desert Daze go on sale Friday, March 30th at 10 a.m. (PST) with “Visitor” (General Admission passes) starting at $249. Camping and lodging experiences will be available via Eventbrite.
