We are extremely proud to invite you to experience the love, the music, and the magic of our Desert Hearts community as we reunite for another weekend long House & Techno celebration under the stars.
Expect nothing less than incredible music from international and local DJs alike, 24 hours a day on the best Funktion-One sound system the west coast has to offer. Packed to the brim with the most engaging theme camps, beautiful deco, psychedelic art installations, artists, performers, yoga, sound healing, open bars and more, this Desert Hearts is shaping up to be our most monumental event yet.
Fresh off the momentum of our unbelievable 1 Year Anniversary Festival held on the La Jolla Indian Reservation, we are ecstatic to get back to our roots this time as we set up camp in the true desert of Southern California. Held on private land in Apple Valley, CA about 2 hours from Los Angeles and 3 hours from San Diego, we want to keep this Desert hearts a bit more underground by keeping the location undisclosed until 24 hours before the event.
House, Techno, & Love are the rules we live by.
We are all Desert Hearts.
