A DAY IN THE DESERT is an intimate music experience in a magical desert oasis. Time stands still as the lush sounds encompass the otherworldly natural setting. The artist line-up is curated to match the landscape and is an eclectic mix of ambient, drone, hardware-based live electronic, metal, psychedelic, house and disco featuring both live bands and DJs.

Like the rise and fall of the sun, the music sets the pace for the day and changes over time; starting out mellow giant boulders as the back-drop, transforming into a disco dance party amidst a field of lasers, lights and the night sky.

DITD is limited in capacity to 250 guests. Set on 640 acres of private, preserved land and without a power line in sight, the off the grid location is a respite from city life and offers a true escape.

A DAY IN THE DESERT is a not-for-profit enterprise with percentage of the admission donated towards the upkeep and conservation of the land. Our goal is to cover costs and provide guests with a laid back and welcoming experience.

It’s time to get away.
