Joshua Tree Spring Music Festival - A Global Experience in the Magical Mojave

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Merging its funky desert style with an internationally acclaimed lineup of musical artists, this three day (and four night) family-friendly festival is truly a global music experience. The 13th Annual Spring Joshua Tree Music Festival melds the overwhelming spirit of desert freedom with powerful music from around the world to create a lighthearted oasis for music lovers.

Magically magnificent art installations, a robust Kidsville schedule, the heavily shaded Music Bowl, a full spectrum of yoga classes from sunrise to sunset, twenty seven different music playshops and didjeridu classes, late night Astronomy theatre, and a World Market further inspire, intrigue and invite festival goers. Discover your new favorite band and dozens of new friends in the shadows of the otherworldly Joshua Tree National Park.

This multi-day campout music festival is located in the high desert of the Mojave in Southern California. Music lovers of all ages enjoy the phenomenal live music in an intimate setting and magical surroundings. The May festival features an eclectic line up of performers; dance-world-electro-funk'n groove. 
 

The spring line-up features the world’s funkiest diplomat, the Polish Ambassador, Australia’s urban roots powerhouse Blue King Brown, revolutionary rockers the Last Internationale, the deep pocket dirty funk live-tronica of the Floozies, electro – samba pioneers Bossacucanova (Brazil), bio-dynamic trance dancers Airtist (Austria).

The electrified African grooves of Driscoll & Kouyate, full throttle rock and roll by Black Pistol Fire (Canada), the soul power supreme of Con Brio, and the Latino global bass party that is Subsuelo. There are thirty three artists representing over fifteen countries with just one band live at a time so you don't miss a beat. The eclectic line-up is artfully sequenced throughout the weekend for maximum impact.
 
The Joshua Tree Music Festivals (there are two each year, with the 10th Annual Fall JTMF happening October 8-11) are intimate, community-centric, artistically infused and highly participatory affairs. They capture the DIY funkiness of the high desert, turning rusted junk into striking art, old trailers into stages, and a shaded stretch of campground on the outskirts of the infamous national park into a family friendly global music experience.

Focusing on up-and-coming artists, the festival has a penchant for picking about-to-break names, from Deer Tick to Trombone Shorty, Edward Sharpe to Brett Dennen, the Avett Brothers to Toubab Krewe, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Chicano Batman, Trampled by Turtles, Greensky Bluegrass, Valerie June and more. 
 

JTMF is produced by a family of friends and funsters convinced that music is the soul of life, and that art enriches and saves lives. The festival is constructed around one Music bowl, with two alternating stages. “It’s the combination of the magical setting, the music and the people that leads to epiphanic moments. We’ve created a space that enables folks to spend more time together with the ability to not miss any of the music,” says festival organizer Barnett English. Those ‘shared experiences’ are where you find the magic.

Kidsville is action packed, and people rate JTMF as one of the few festivals that truly caters to the entire family.

There is no ‘nosebleed’ section, white tents, long lines or yellow-jacketed security details. Instead find instant community with nonstop interaction, as folks gather under the billowing shade cloth (over 30,000 square feet of shade flying over the stages and audience), while soaking up the sonic celebrations of the inspired artists. This intimate affair is splashed with ‘conversation stopping’ golden sunsets and star-filled desert night skies.
 
The town of Joshua Tree is located in the high desert of the magical Mojave, 50 minutes from Palm Springs, 2.5 hour drive from LA, three hours from San Diego, 3.5 from Vegas, and five from Phoenix, at the entrance to the world renowned national park.

The Festival is held May 14th-17th at the Joshua Tree Lake Campground, 2601 Sunfair Rd., Joshua Tree, CA.Admission price ranges from $60.00 to $180.00. 
  

The desert is freedom, music is power, and community is crucial. Tap into this magical trifecta and get your JTMF tickets at: www.joshuatreemusicfestival.com/tickets.html
