Taking place this October 10th-12th, A DAY IN THE DESERT promises to be an intimate music experience in a magic desert oasis. DITD offers 200 guests the chance to escape into 640 acres of preserved desert wilderness and enjoy an artist line-up curated to match the landscape.
The hyper-curated selection is a mix of ambient, drone, hardware-based live electronic, metal, psychedelic, house and disco – the music matching the time of day.
ACTRESS, aka Darren Cunningham, will be performing in the headline spot, which at DITD is during sunset. The unique backdrop of an amphitheater carved out of boulders is poignantly marked at first by the pink, orange and blue hues of the desert sky and then transformed underneath a starry sky and bath of lasers. Known widely as one of the UK’s foremost cutting edge and dynamic electronic producers, ACTRESS’ one-of-a-kind set promises to be something extremely special.
Also performing live Saturday 10/11 are NYC techno duo BLONDES, the tripped out space music of CHROME CANYON, the beautifully brutal dirge of THE BODY and ‘house synth band’ S U R V I V E. DJs LOVEFINGERS, HEIDI, SONNS ensure a dance party will ensue. GREG BOWLER and COSMIC RON warm things up with a yet to be announced DJ line-up on Friday 10/10.
Past year’s line-ups have included cult and experimental artists such as EARTH, SUN ARAW, MARK MCGUIRE, SPACIN’, SSLEEPERHOLD, PROSTITUTES + more.
The $200 all-in ticket weekend (10/10/14 - 10/12/14) ticket price includes all music, camping, organic food, micro brews and drinks, yoga classes, sound baths and a host of other surprises. Leave your wallet in the car, pick a spot to rest your head, and let the environment suck you in for the weekend as time stands still.
More acts, set times and exclusive partnerships to be announced.
Location: Pioneertown, CA.
