ABOUT TIKI OASIS:
Southern California’s family-run Tiki Oasis was conceived in 2001 as a fundraiser to support the rehabilitation of the Palm Springs Caliente Tropics Motel, the most elaborate of a chain of five California Tropics Tiki motels and an important part of Tiki history. The event was moved to San Diego in 2006 to support the historic Bali Hai Restaurant and Hanalei Hotel. Now Tiki Oasis is proud to be the original and largest Tiki event in the world and features five nights and four days of live music, dance, DJs, vendors, a fashion show, poolside entertainment, a car show, kids activities, an art exhibit, plus top experts giving educational presentations. Its sister event, Arizona Tiki Oasis made its successful debut in 2019 and brings the island lifestyle to the desert in full Mid-Century glory.

  • Seminar tickets are available ala carte without an event pass!

Tiki Oasis is the original and largest Tiki event in the world. Enjoy five nights and four days of live music, pool lounging, fashion shows, swanky suites, sunset dinners, disc jockeys, art exhibits, educational seminars, busting Tiki Marketplace, and tropical cocktails curated by top mixologists and so much more!

This year, Tiki Oasis celebrates the Caribbean Islands and their influence on Tiki subculture with Tiki Oasis: A Trip to the Tropics. When we think of Tiki subculture, we think of Polynesia, but the influence of the Caribbean — from its tropical flavors, rum, dance, and Mid-Century upbeat music — has also shaped the Polynesian Pop scene we know today.

This year’s theme will be explored through educational seminars, literature, movies, and entertainment from live bands, dancers, and disc jockeys. 

Tiki Oasis will explore the flavors of the Caribbean islands with seminars, tastings, and cocktail sampling. Agriculture from the Bahamas to Trinidad includes sugarcane, bananas, coffee, tobacco, citrus, and cacao. These flavors influenced the creation of classic tropical cocktails such as the Puerto Rican Piña Colada, Panama’s Bird of Paradise Fizz, and the Jamaican Planter’s Punch, all of which influenced what we now call “Tiki Drinks.”

Tiki Oasis will also celebrate the music and dance of the region. The original Afro-Caribbean music of Trinidad known as Calypso is authentic island music and was an early influence on Jamaican Rocksteady, Ska, and early Reggae. The dance styles are often described as fluid, sensual, and rhythmic. Popular vibrant dances included the mambo, rumba, and merengue that borrow and riff from mixing African, European, and indigenous cultures. 

Tiki Oasis is being held at Town and Country Resort. Family-owned since it was built as a 40-room roadside lodge in 1953, Town and Country, Mission Valley’s first hotel, underwent major expansions in 1968 and 1969. In honor of Town and Country’s history and mid-century roots, the hotel completed a $70 million dollar renovation in 2020 and has been re-imagined into a modern retreat unlike any other hotel in San Diego!

Tiki Oasis is an All-Inclusive Event

Our event prides itself on being all-inclusive; everyone is welcome to join in on the fun! At Tiki Oasis, we make a concerted effort to ensure all our attendees feel valued, safe, and free to be their most authentic selves. We are committed to creating a culture of inclusion where differences are both appreciated and respected, via our

JOSHUA TREE MUSIC FESTIVAL Presents: Let in the Light May 12-15 2022

Event: Joshua Tree Music Festival Presents: Let in the Light
Website: joshuatreemusicfestival.com
Date: May 12-15, 2022
Location:   Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground, 2601 Sunfair Rd, Joshua Tree, CA
Media Contact: Lee Joseph,  Reverberations Media – 818-415-5543

Celebrating 20 years this May! Joshua Tree Music Festival invites you to ‘Let in the Light’ May 12-15, 2022. The California Honeydrops, Neal Francis, Cimafunk, Gone Gone Beyond, Thumpasaurus, and more to take the stage in Joshua Tree this spring.

Joshua Tree Music Festival is thrilled to be celebrating 20 years this spring. The first Joshua Tree Music Festival happened in the spring of 2003. A second annual event was added in the fall of 2006 and we’ve been gathering biannually in the Mojave ever since.

About 400 funsters joined our first gathering in 2003. Lots of lovely local (soon-to-be) friends came out en masse to help make it all happen. We had just moved to town, strangers basically. Yet everyone came out to build, paint, create, and organize. It was truly amazing and the deep sense of community remains a pillar of the Joshua Tree Music Festival experience. Shares festival founder Barnett English.

Fall 2021 was an incredible ‘homecoming’ for our JTMF family. The love and joy in the air was palpable. It reinforced just how special this community, that we have been building for the last 20 years, really is, continues English.

Joshua Tree Music Festival Let in the Light will be an intimate affair with tickets limited and pre-sale only. Attendees can expect supreme live music experiences to feed the body, mind, and spirit. Deep dive workshops to uplift and inspire. Yoga and healing to soothe restless souls. Random acts of mindfulness invite you to interact and connect. Spontaneous eruptions of gratitude. That friendly familial spirit that we all know and love.

We’ve chosen the theme ‘Let in the Light’ for this May’s festival. It seems fitting as we emerge from the heaviness of the last couple of years. We want to remind people of the importance and power of sharing love and laughter, gathering as a community, dancing, and releasing together. Says festival co-producer Cassie Morrow.

On the lineup: The California Honeydrops, Cimafunk, Neal Francis, Gone Gone Beyond, Thumpasaurus, DJ Dan, 79rs, Sofaz, Adam Freeland, Banda Sin Nombre, Sunny War, The Seshen, Kate Vargas, House of Hamsa (Live DJ set), Mikey Reyes’ Beats & Rhymes, Gorangutang, Father Taj.

Joshua Tree Music Festival presents: Let in the Light is an invitation to fully immerse and connect with your festival community. Over four days and nights, attendees can enjoy a relaxed schedule of music, yoga, workshops, mindfulness, and kids’ activities. This is an all-ages family-friendly event.

Joshua Tree Music Festival Presents: Let in the Light takes place May 12-15, 2022 at the Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground, 2601 Sunfair Rd, Joshua Tree, CA.

The Joshua Tree Music Festival takes place every May and October at the gateway to the world-renowned Joshua Tree National Park. The four-day festivals are immersive, inclusive, and inspiring experiences catering to music and art-loving funsters and families with a sense of adventure.

Since its founding in 2003, the Joshua Tree Music Festival has presented worldly music experiences on several stages, underneath a huge, star-filled desert sky in the shadows of the Joshua Tree National Park. The festival combines its musical program with magnificent art installations by many of the area’s talented artists, a full spectrum of yoga and spiritual classes, music workshops, a robust Kidsville schedule, a world marketplace featuring clothing, instruments, unique items crafted by local and international artists, and a variety of food and beverage vendors!

JTMF Presents: Heart of the Matter is an invitation to regroup and reconnect with the festival community. Over four days and nights, attendees can enjoy a relaxed schedule of music, yoga, workshops, and a marketplace. This is an all-ages family-friendly event.  

To make room for more healing and feeling, the JTMF experience will be transformed.  Fewer people. More space. Fewer concurrent activities. More time to engage one another. Says festival founder Barnett English. 

While some things change, much remains the same. Attendees can expect supreme live music experiences to feed the soul, deep-dive workshops to uplift and inspire, random acts of mindfulness inviting them to interact and connect, spontaneous eruptions of gratitude, and the friendly familial spirit that Joshua Tree Music Festival is known for. 

Lineup: Dirtwire, Orgone, Mike Love, Moontricks, Smoked Out Soul, Symone French, and the Trouille Troupe, Autonomix, Collectivity, Gabriella Evaro, and Father Taj.

With the health and wellbeing of patrons and crew a priority, Joshua Tree Music Festival will be implementing additional safety protocols including limiting the number of attendees, increased sanitation, and an interim refund policy to make it easier for ticket holders to stay home if they are sick. We are aware this situation will continue to evolve and we will be ready to adapt our policies to follow county, state, and CDC guidelines as needed says English. 

Other Events
