Desert Daze Celebrates 10 Years Of Art & Music And Announces 2022 Lineup

Desert Daze
Iggy Pop is back at Desert Daze 2022

Do you want to party as if it was 2017? or 2018? This freshly-announced lineup for Desert Daze 2022 has a strong deja-vu vibe – Tame Impala headlined the desert fest in 2018 and Iggy Pop in 2017 – but nobody is going to complain. First, Tame Impala barely performed last time since a very violent thunderstorm forced them to abort their set after 2 or 3 songs. Hopefully this time they will be able to perform their groundbreaking album “Lonerism” in its entirety (for its 10th Anniversary) as it is announced. Then there is Iggy, and no excuse is needed to see him again. But if you need one, this Desert Daze performance will be his only North American show this year. Another returning act from 2018: King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, playing an exclusive Southern California set… so Desert Daze’s 10th Anniversary will be filled with nostalgia. In addition, there are many other enticing (to me) acts that should not be missed: Chicano Batman, The Marías, Sky Ferreira, BADBADNOTGOOD, JPEGMAFIA, Perfume Genius, Aldous Harding, Men I Trust, Sleaford Mods… and plenty of other ones I am not really familiar with. The lineup is quite dense and will keep you busy for three full days, just take a look at the full lineup below.

As usual, Desert Daze is more than a music festival, and a lot is going on: the grounds will be illuminated by an array of video artists and art installations including work by Tarik Barri, Mad Alchemy Liquid Light Show, Slim Reaper, and more. Multidisciplinary artist Cristopher Cichocki also returns to the beach, curating this year’s installment of The Sanctuary featuring clipping., Silent Servant, Kid 606, and more, as well as Cichocki’s own Circular Dimensions Immersive Sound Installation and DJ sets from Nosaj Thing and Telefon Tel Aviv.

In addition to the music, the weekend will feature screenings and talks including a screening of Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia followed by a Q&A with host Hamilton Morris, a conversation on Mysticism in the Music Industry with artist and occultist Micki Pellerano, with very special guests to be announced.

Upon opening the campgrounds, Desert Daze invites passengers with camping passes to explore The Outer Space, which will feature morning yoga, sound baths, and late-night sets all weekend, including an extra night of entertainment on Thursday, September 29 for campers who check in early. The Outer Space will also feature performances by Frankie & the Witch Fingers, Meatbodies, Mauskovic Dance Band, Acid Dad, and many more including the Desert Daze Closing Ceremonies ft. JJUUJJUU & Friends during the early hours of Monday, October 3.

Desert Daze is produced by Moon Block and Knitting Factory Entertainment (KFE). Weekend passes, parking and camping passes will be available this Thursday, June 16th at 10 am PT, with ticket prices starting at $299 for weekend passes, with payment plans available. For the first time this year, Desert Daze has also partnered with FUSE to help concertgoers put together hotel packages for a variety of budgets. Also, look for additional lineup additions coming soon.
