Joshua Tree Music Festival offers up a virtual celebration in lieu of its May festival.

The Joshua Tree Music Festival is honored to come together with its community and co-create this virtual offering.

A message from Joshua Tree Music Festival HQ
With heavy hearts, we are officially announcing that the 18th Annual Spring Joshua Tree Music Festival which was to be held May 14-17, 2020, will be canceled.

We still strongly believe that community is crucial and our hearts want nothing more than to gather and sing and dance and laugh together. With current conditions, however, community means being socially responsible and adhering to the CDC’s recommendations of social distancing for the well-being of all.

Our thoughts are with you all during these unprecedented and uncertain times. Please stay safe, stay healthy, and check in on each other.  

Ticket holders will be contacted directly with further information and options. We will be using this time to regroup and are putting our energies into preparing for the 15th Annual Fall Festival, Oct 8-11, 2020. We look forward to reuniting with our community in the Fall!

Please support the bands that were scheduled to play, stream their music, and have a look at any merchandise they are selling online, at this link.

Plans are in the works for the annual Fall Festival. Check the website for updates.

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.
