Desert Daze 2021: The Event Returns At Lake Perris

Desert Daze 2021

Desert Daze 2021


Desert Daze, the Southern California Event, returns November 12 – 14TH, and The War on Drugs (their only 2021 performance), Kamasi Washington, Toro Y Moi, and Japanese Breakfast are headlining.

In dreams, the lake whispered, in waking the lake called out psychically – but then also on the phone. Desert Daze is returning to Lake Perris, CA for a weekend of concerts from November 12 – 14, 2021. Headlining this year’s event is The War on Drugs performing their only 2021 show, Kamasi Washington, Toro y Moi, and Japanese Breakfast.

Desert Daze is thrilled to be able to return to our home of the last few years. Like you, the lake knows where we belong. In order to provide a safer experience, this year’s event will be scaled down to keep us together in spirit while socially distanced. We are proud to present to you a weekend of camping and intimate outdoor performances.

As the sun winds down each day, the sonic reverberations will start and the grounds will be illuminated by an array of video artists and art installations. The three-day lineup will also feature music from Devendra Banhart, Andy Shauf, Tim Heidecker & Weyes Blood, Crumb, Yves Tumor, Ty Segall, The Black Angels, DIIV, Kikagaku Moyo, The Budos Band, Moon Duo, Sudan Archives, Deap Vally, La Luz, Sasami, Crack Cloud, SPELLLING, Pachyman, JJUUJUU and Geese, with stage projections from Mad Alchemy.

Desert Daze is produced by Moon Block and Knitting Factory Entertainment. “It’s been a long year+ away from the Desert Daze community and we are really excited about seeing the people that make this event so special and seeing this beautiful, multi-faceted lineup at the lake,” notes Desert Daze & Moon Block founder, curator and JJUUJJUU frontman Phil Pirrone.

Tickets, parking and camping passes will be on sale Friday, July 23 at 10am PT and start at $75 for single-day tickets, and $225 for 3-Show passes with payment plans available for 3-Show passes only. Desert Daze capacity will be limited this year to accommodate for safety measures, and fans are encouraged to purchase passes early as the weekend is expected to sell out quickly.
