Desert Daze in Joshua Tree is the music festival for outdoorsy people

With the proliferation and increasing popularity of music festivals these days, it can be hard to decide where you want to invest your time and, ultimately, your hard-earned money.

If you’ve been to any of the more popular music festivals in the last 10 years, you know that they’ve morphed into much more than just music — they’re more of a lifestyle gathering for like-minded people. And for those looking for an authentic experience, it can be hard to determine which festival will fit the bill.

Enter Desert Daze. The 3-day event isn’t just a music festival; it’s an authentic camping experience, taking place at Joshua Tree’s Institute of Mentalphysics in California from Oct. 12-15.

Desert Daze includes everything from car and tent camping to a Mystic Bazaar and Camping Village.

Guests can bring their own campers if they choose, and because of their emphasis on limited capacity, guests won’t just attend Desert Daze … they will truly experience Desert Daze.

The festival focuses on wellness, food, drink and of course, the musical performances.

Food trucks, as well as an actual diner, will be serving vegan, vegetarian and omnivore-friendly food options, alongside juice bars, actual bars, and even a farmers’ market, where guests can indulge in fresh fruits and veggies, juices and other local treats.

Single day tickets, as well as general admission weekend passes, VIP, Super Duper VIP, and camping options are all available for guests.

You can check out all of details at the Desert Daze website.
