Joshua Tree Music Festival announces an October streaming event – Joshua Tree Music Festival Presents: From the Desert With Love. The event will include a series of music sets filmed on location at the Joshua Tree Music Festival site the week before. We opted to pre-record the sets to ensure the best quality video and audio for people’s living room dance parties says festival founder Barnett English. The event will also include a daily mindfulness class live-streamed from the festival site and a secret menu of ‘silly shenanigans’ that guests will have to keep their eye out for. We hope to unite people, support the artists and crew, and promote the community vibes that the festival is so known for during a time when it is so needed, continues English.
 
In true JTMF style, the event will kick off with a Thursday evening dance party on October 15, with a live-streamed DJ set with Subko. The Thursday kick-off party will be free to the public. Tickets to the main streaming event October 16-18 start at $10 for stream access with tiers up to $60 that include bonus perks and exclusive merch.
 
We hope ‘JTMF Presents: From The Desert With Love’ is the first in a series of streaming events that we’re able to bring to our community. This event will be extra special as it is all filmed or streamed from the Joshua Tree Music Festival site. If we can’t bring people to the festival, we’re going to do our best to bring the festival to our people! Says Marketing and Communications Director Cassie Morrow.  
 
For event updates, RSVP on Facebook, or visit www.joshuatreemusicfestival.com.
 
What else has the Joshua Tree Music Festival team been up to during this time? We’re glad you asked!
 
With in-person events still on hold, the Joshua Tree Music Festival team has taken this time to work on side projects CasaGogo and Harmonize Printing.
 
About CasaGogo: 2020 has been filled with uncertainty. But if there’s one thing we are certain of, it’s that getting outdoors and spending time with your loved ones stargazing, outside in wide-open spaces, soaking in the desert energy, is medicine for the soul. We lucky folks that live in the desert get to benefit from this on a daily basis but there are many who do not, so we hope to provide this opportunity for people to get some ‘soul medicine’ in a safe and responsible way. For more go to casagogo.com.
 
About Harmonize Printing: Harmonize printing is a direct-to-garment t-shirt printing business where people can purchase Joshua Tree Music Festival merchandise as well as designs by musicians, local artists, and local businesses who all need community support right now. All garments are printed to order, with love, right here in Joshua Tree. For more go to harmonizeprinting.com.

Joshua Tree Music Festival – Dive a little deeper at the 14th Annual Fall Joshua Tree Music Festival, October 10-13. 

Live for music and compelling live performances but not so much the large ‘music festival’ crowd? Joshua Tree Music Festival may have just what you need! This sweet festival, happening since 2003, is unassuming, unpretentious, and as un-mainstream as it comes. Prepare for a festival experience that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and engaged, rather than depleted and overstimulated.

The Desert is Freedom, Music is Power, and Community is Crucial.

This simple but potent phrase underlies everything that Joshua Tree Music Festival is. In the lead up to the 14th Annual Fall Joshua Tree Music Festival, Oct 10-13, festival founder Barnett English elaborates. 

The Desert is Freedom. The desert energy is undeniable, calling people to let go, open up, learn, grow, express. This energy is heightened even further at the festival. Potent live music, multidisciplinary musical, movement, and spiritual workshops, interactive art, and yoga classes are all invitations for attendees to fully immerse themselves. A space is created to be present, seek connections, ask questions, express yourself. Leave that cell phone in your car until Monday and soak in everything the festival has to offer!

Music is Power. By design, the JTMF line-ups are a diverse, spicy gumbo of talented artists from around the globe. Variety is the spice!  The weekend of music is like a live mixtape, sequenced to take you on a joyful ride. Artists on the rise. Ones you don’t see at other fests. Many of the previous JTMF artists have gone on to have phenomenal music careers (Edward Sharpe, Trombone Shorty, Avett Brothers). So be prepared to have some new favorite bands – yes, plural – and to witness their goose-bump inducing magic up close and real personal!

Some not-to-be-missed performers on the roster for the upcoming 14th Annual Fall Joshua Tree Music Festival Oct 10-13 include; Hill Country trance blues maestros North Mississippi Allstars, New Orleans meets Bay Area soulsters The California Honeydrops, Mongolian heavy metal folk band The Hu on their highly anticipated first North American headline tour, live electro global funkateers Balkan Bump (with a live band), and the afro grooves of the Cole Williams Band. 

Community is Crucial.  The Joshua Tree Music Festival experience is community-centric, where family and friends share deep connections and communal emotions.  In our modern digital times, the festival setting carves space for much needed real human connection. Happiness and euphoria occur when we are a part of something bigger than us. The capacity for collective joy is encoded into us almost as deeply as the capacity for the love of one human for another.  We encourage these shared experiences by having just one stage live at a time, so everyone witnesses a performance together.

“A long weekend of positive vibes, feel-deep tunes, and activities centered on centering yourself (or at least shaking off some of the stress burrs that life so predictably throws our way).” –NBC Los Angeles 

“Take a trip to the Joshua Tree Music Festival and you’ll find a different kind of environment…It’s definitely not the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, but that’s kind of the point.” – San Bernardino Sun

“Everywhere I looked, there was an art installation or mural. I realized nobody was fighting and everyone was friends. There was no room for hate. We stepped, swayed, and sang together to gather all the precious moments we could.” –Bolder Beat 

The 14th Annual Fall Joshua Tree Music Festival takes place Oct10-13, 2019 at the Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground, 2601 Sunfair Rd, Joshua Tree, CA. If you’re looking for an event that’s true to its humble beginnings, where you can drop right in and feel like you’ve instantly joined the family, this is it!

By design, the JTMF lineups are a diverse spicy gumbo of talented artists from around the globe. Variety is the spice!

Also on the lineup: Live electronica power trio Yak Attack, potent New Orleans AfroPunk queen Cole Williams, electro-funk fusionists Russ Liquid Test, singer/songwriter and expert story-teller Steve Poltz, afro-indigenous hip-hop revolutionaries Earth Arrow, world beat rock and rollers Elektric Voodoo, the gospelized New Orleans grooves of Water Seed, the psychedelic Afro-rock and soul of Orchestra Gold, and more.

As always, the festival includes a strong representation of local acts from the rich and vibrant music scene of Joshua Tree, Coachella Valley and surrounding areas: Adam Freeland, Davis Music, Cactus Wine Experience, Desert Rhythm Project, Gabriella Evaro, Long/Division, Myshkin Warbler, The Amritakripa Band, Ocho Ojos, Megafauna, The Flusters will showcase the diversity and talent the desert has to offer.

The JTMF experience features several multidisciplinary musical, movement, and spiritual workshops. Yoga classes are held from sunrise to sunset. A diverse selection of vendors can be found in the World Market. Attendees can enjoy a range of bodywork and healing services at the JTMF Healing Oasis. Art is featured throughout the festival grounds via live painting, art installations and more. Numerous food options are available on-site.

Friday
WINE APPRECIATION WITH VINTNERS, JUDD FINKELSTEIN AND GERALD CASALE
Winemakers Judd Finkelstein and Gerald Casale invite you to join them as they make wine approachable, and break down the intimidation factor surrounding the world of wine. Get wine-confident! You’ll learn sensory techniques and food pairing tips, gain knowledge of common grape varieties, hear engaging stories, and have some laughs throughout. Of course, all of this will be accompanied by an array of their wines The Fifty By Fifty and Judd’s Hill winery.

Judd Finkelstein is the proprietor of Judd’s Hill winery in Napa Valley and has 40+ years of winemaking experience in this famed region. In his other life, he is the band leader of the old-timey Hawaiian-style combo, The Maikai Gents. Gerald Casale is the co-founder of the band DEVO, a longtime wine educator, and proprietor of the Pinot Noir based wine brand The Fifty By Fifty. 

INGREDIENTS MATTER: GUIDE TO DRINKING WELL
Hosted by Randy Tarlow from Liquid Alchemist, this seminar covers the importance of choosing quality ingredients when making cocktails. Examining spirits, liqueurs, syrups, juices, and ice. Why we choose fresh and premium vs artificial products. How these ingredients affect the taste and presentation of cocktails. And most important, how to drink well to prevent a hangover. Guests will leave with the understanding of what they are actually consuming and why they should be discerning when ordering a cocktail, how pricing for quality products is justified. and health-conscious options for the long party weekend.

CREATE A WORLD OF TIKI IN YOUR HOME BAR
Pam Kueber of Retro Renovation is ready to reveal all the secrets of creating a world of Tiki in your home. Starting with six blank walls — yes, the ceiling matters, too! Learn how to tackle the process of creating a tiki paradise so that you too, can transform any room in your house into your own great escape. Based on interviews with professional tiki bar designers and homeowners who shared lessons from their projects, plus countless hours of research to create her own “Mahalo Lounge”, Pam has distilled this creative project into seven distinct steps. You’ll hear about tiki-theory essentials, design concepts, options for materials and where to get them, the big no-no’s, and more. Creating a home tiki bar can be an intimidating project – “more is more” here, but you can do it if you take it step-by-step!

MAI TAI ROA A’E! W/JEFF “BEACHBUM” BERRY
The world’s most famous Tiki drink is 75 years old this year … and so is the war over who invented it.  Trader Vic claimed he invented the Mai Tai in 1944. Bandleader Harry Owens claimed he introduced the Mai Tai to the world in 1954.  And Don The Beachcomber said he invented the Mai Tai way back in 1932.  At the risk of getting fragged in the crossfire, Beachbum Berry will examine the evidence and serve up samples of different Mai Tai recipes — including Vic’s 1944 Mai Tai, still “da kine” after all these years!

Saturday

Do you have a love for traditional surf music played on a Fender Jaguar, straight through a 1963 Fender Reverb tank, then blasted through a blonde Fender Showman? So do the members of SurfGuitar101!

The SG101 Convention started in 2008 when the members of www.surfguitar101.com agreed there should be an annual meet & greet for members. The convention features bands, gear, and gives the occasional performing enthusiast a chance to show off their skills on stage. Additionally, a plethora of vendors present their music, merch, and gear up for sale.

This event celebrates surf music in all forms, from the instrumental tunes that influenced the forefathers, to the bands that created and developed that unmistakable sound, to the current domestic and foreign bands today, either carrying on the tradition of instrumental surf ‘n’ drag tunes in their pure form or progressively changing the face of the genre. There is something for everyone!
