Tiki Oasis on Instagram
Tiki Oasis is a family produced four-day Polynesian Pop lifestyle convention / party which takes place in Southern California each August, and is the only event of its kind on Planet Earth. Each year Tiki Oasis presents a different theme which explores, celebrates, and preserves mid-century aesthetics via entertainment, fashion, food, drink and education, while showing its relevancy in contemporary culture. Tiki Oasis attendees experience four days of mixology, live and DJ music sets, educational symposiums, book signings, marketplace shopping, art, burlesque, comedy, vintage cars, fashion, food, kids events, and more!
Tiki Oasis was conceived in 2001 as a fundraiser to support the rehabilitation of the mid-century Palm Springs Caliente Tropics Motel which attracted a small gathering of tikiphiles. The event moved to San Diego in 2006 and has since grown to include two locations, three hotels, over 30 symposiums, 100 vendors, numerous sponsors, a slew of talent including live bands, disk jockeys, burlesque and go-go dancers, visual artist and carvers, guitar and ukulele instructors, vintage cars, mixology experts and well over 3000 attendees.
TIKI OASIS 2016 PARTY ON MONSTER ISLAND
From rubber Godzillas tearing apart the South Seas, to surfing, go-go dancing Frankenstein and Wolfman, creatures have always been lurking in paradise.
This year, Tiki Oasis celebrates our monster brethren from King Kong, Godzilla and Creature From the Black Lagoon, to the Famous Monsters of Hollywood (1932-1950s). Like lovers of Polynesian Pop, many of the classic monsters we know share the Modern Primitive ethos. Some were discovered in mysterious, exotic, tropical lands but others originated in urban areas and frolicked with average humans.
Tiki Oasis 16 Party on Monster Island’s live music entertainment includes The Sonics, Messer Chups (from Russia), Donna Loren & the Shindiggers, The Creepy Creeps, Deadbolt, The Mission Creeps, Creepxotica, Black Magic Beach Party, The Alika Lyman Group, The Lampshades, Jimmy Psycho Experiment, Phantom Four, The Primitive Finks, The Woggles, Screaming Lord Stax, Boss Fink, The Primitive Finks, Bradipos V, Jason Lee & RIPtides, and more!. A full list of sponsors, weekend events, symposiums, DJs, marketplace vendors will be listed on the Tiki Oasis website.
Don your rubber mask and join the monster party at Tiki Oasis 2016!
