RE+UNION will harken back to the spirit of the very first Desert Daze.
2012 was another time. Coinciding with the ancient tradition of Coachella expanding to two weekends, a small desert roadhouse asked two LA musicians, pure of heart, to take over their entertainment programming. Legend has it that with a little luck and electric pigeons sent to every band they knew, an implausible 122 bands were booked to play over 11 consecutive days. The outcome was an unprecedented synthesis of community, art, and music tailored to seekers of “the experience” over corporate-branded reality, which put the now beloved Desert Daze on the map.
In celebration of the celebration, Desert Daze will host two special concerts at the greatest venue on planet earth, Pappy and Harriet’s in Pioneertown, CA on Saturday, April 11 with sets from The Budos Band, Shannon & the Clams and more, and Friday, April 17 with sets from A Place to Bury Strangers, Mdou Moctar and more. In the spirit of life, rebirth, fertility, and proper hydration, we invite you to inaugurate a new spring tradition with us. Both shows will be indoor and outdoor on two stages, with lots of bands, a select group of familiar Desert Daze installation art, and visuals by Mad Alchemy, Slim Reaper and Snake Chime Zen.
These shows will be extremely limited in capacity and expected to sell out so please act fast. Limited hotels are available in the direct area – contact the Pioneertown Motel today – with plenty of camping available in the area including Pioneertown Corrals, both located just behind Pappy’s. Hotels and house rentals are also available throughout the high and low desert including one of our faves, @themoonjoshuatree.
Tickets for Saturday, April 11 are available for $45 and for Friday, April 17 are available for $39.50 now via www.desertdaze.org. Limited two-day passes are also available for $84.50.
