Desert Daze Music Festival Returns to California

Stephanie Weiss
The festival will continue all day and night, rain or shine.

Daniel Gomez, Online Editor-in-Chief

Amidst crackling static, cosmic bird calls and din of unfamiliar voices whispering in a strange tongue, a new transmission has been received from the source.

With less than 7 weeks until festivities begin, Desert Daze 2018 announces new lineup additions, daily schedules and new program information with more surprises on the way. The magnificent and quintessential shoegaze/dream pop group Slowdive joins the bill, along with modern West Coast psych rock/drone forerunners Wooden Shjips . Other new additions to the main programming include: Idles , Cosmonauts , L.A. Witch , Death Valley Girls , VinylWilliams , Goon , Stonefield, Sugar Candy Mountain and The Mad Walls . After the regular festival schedule ends for the day, the lighting changes, the mood shifts and things get experimental with the inclusion of late night collaborative sets by Kikagaku Moyo withBoogarins and JJUUJJUU (and more to be revealed), plus full sets from Deap Vally ,Lumerians , Prettiest Eyes . Late night programming will be available to all Desert Daze visitors.
