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

JTMF Presents: From The Desert With Love.

Where: Online, everywhere!

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!

The 14th Annual Fall Festival Spotify Playlist gives an idea of the diversity of music attendees can expect.

The 14th Annual Fall Joshua Tree Music Festival happening Oct 10-13, 2019 is going to be one for the books! Music lovers will relish in the eclectic lineup featuring artists and inspiration from around the globe.  Expect to be taken on a musical journey over the course of this four-day family-friendly festival in the Mojave Desert. 

‘What genres of music will I see at the Joshua Tree Music Festival’ is a commonly asked question. The answer: The acts are not chosen by genre, rather based on the goosebump-inducing, powerful, potent, compelling performances they deliver. Be prepared to discover some of your favorite new live acts on the JTMF stage!  

By design, the JTMF lineups 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 with artists on the rise that you don’t see at other fests.  Says festival founder Barnett English. 

Some not-to-be-missed performers 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 Gato Preto bringing their new school Afro grooves (via Ghana & Mozambique).

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. An action-packed Kidsville provides all-day activities and entertainment for the younger attendees, and places JTMF among the leading family-friendly festivals in the USA.

Tickets are now on sale via the website at:  www.joshuatreemusicfestival.com.
