It’s time to turn on, tune in, and drop out, because Southern California’s favorite psychedelic desert extravaganza is back in full form for its tenth anniversary with its 2022 lineup.
Desert Daze returns Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 to the halcyon shores of Lake Perris in Riverside County, featuring headliners Iggy Pop (performing his only US show this year), Tame Impala performing their landmark second album “Lonerism” in its entirety, and prolific Aussie rockers King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.
Additional acts on the stacked bill include Chicano Batman, The Marías, Sky Ferreira, Cortex, BADBADNOTGOOD, Boy Pablo, Perfume Genius, Viagra Boys, Shannon and the Clams, Nation Of Language, Duster, Nilüfer Yanya, Show Me The Body, Daniel Rossen Of Grizzly Bear, Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, Surfbort, L.A. Witch, Automatic, Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul, The Paranoyds, Telefon Tel Aviv, and more — with even more lineup additions coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled.
In true far-out form, the grounds will be illuminated by an array of video artists and art installations, including work by Tarik Barri, Mad Alchemy Liquid Light Show, Slim Reaper, and more. Multidisciplinary artist Cristopher Cichocki also returns to the beach, curating this year’s installment of The Sanctuary featuring clipping., Silent Servant, Kid 606 and more, as well as Cichocki’s own Circular Dimensions Immersive Sound Installation and DJ sets from Nosaj Thing and Telefon Tel Aviv.
In addition to the music, the weekend will feature screenings and talks including a screening of Hamilton's Pharmacopeia followed by a Q&A with host Hamilton Morris, a conversation on Mysticism in the Music Industry with artist and occultist Micki Pellerano, with very special guests to be announced. Camping pass holders can also enjoy all the amenities of the Outer Space, including sound baths, yoga, and special late night performances all weekend long.
The pre-sale is live now, with weekend passes, parking, and camping passes available to the general public this Thursday, June 16 at 10 a.m. PT. Ticket prices start at $299 for weekend passes (payment plans available). Desert Daze has also partnered with FUSE to help concertgoers put together hotel packages across a variety of budgets, which you can check out on their website.
