Desert Daze has announced that their 2021 festival will not be happening as a three-day event but rather a concert series at Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown, CA from October 17 – November 23, 2021.

The last incarnation of the festival in 2019 was an incredible time, so I’m glad to see the organization is adapting a bit this year, and they plan to return to Lake Perris in 2022.

Watch the 2019 recap video below and read the full announcement from their team.

Desert Daze 2019: Recap Film

#DesertDaze2021 is a wish. It is symbolic. Most importantly, it is happening.

Live music is integral to the human experience, from fossilized flutes older than the idea of cities to 3D projections and the wind of amplified electric pulses. The concert has survived every catastrophe that we have. To move forward, Desert Daze is looking back, not to the Neolithic, but to 2012. An inversion of numbers, alignment of celestial bodies, or maybe just the right amount of compulsion and sunstroke, bring us back to where it all began.

In the spirit of the first Desert Daze, which took place over 11 days at a remote desert roadhouse, we return as a series of concerts at the majestic Pappy & Harriet’s in Pioneertown, CA from October 17 – November 23.

This will be a unique and transformative experience featuring measured doses of artists not usually witnessed in an intimate setting. We’re working around the clock to finish the lineup and make sure we can adhere to all health and safety protocols. All shows will be announced and on sale soon along with motel packages. Rooms at Pioneertown Motel will be held for DD attendees, though rooms are not available from the Motel’s website. Contact [email protected] for a reservation.

Next year we return to the lake with renewed focus and vision.
