7th Annual Joshua Tree Music Festival, May 15-17
Set to run May 15-17, the 7th Annual Joshua Tree Music Festival will feature 20 bands over three days on two alternating stages for continuous music. Boasting international sensations like Mexico's Nortec Collective, Amsterdam's Kraak & Smaak, the Kenyan-American hybrid Extra Golden and the deep New Orleans funk of Porter Batiste Stoltz, this is shaping up to be the strongest Joshua Tree event yet.

While the music comes from around the world, the setting for the Joshua Tree Music Festival is an otherworldly landscape capped by crystalline clear skies. A three day high desert camping experience in the magical Mojave. The music emanates from two stages in an intimate open-air amphitheatre where you can actually see who is performing on stage. Just one band live at a time so you don't miss a beat. Organic food booths and environmentally conscious vendors complete the circle that is the music bowl at the family friendly festival.
Early Bird Tickets (limited amount) are available via the website for $80 for a three day festival pass. On site camping is $10 per person per night.
