Joshua Tree
Music Festival

Oct 5-8, 2017

The festivals are a celebration of life, lovingly produced by a family of friends and funsters who believe that music is the soul of life. 

These intimate, family friendly experiences in the magical Mojave go deep to create positive and meaningful life-changing moments.  The music is diverse, positive and potent; featuring artists on the rise. A happy, loving and egalitarian space is created, where the boundary between artist and audience is blurred. We’re all in this together.
