The first round of performers have been released as part of the Desert Daze 2018 lineup — and the festival is looking poised to deliver its biggest event yet.
The first headliner announced for this year’s festival is Tame Impala, a perfect fit for the weird and unique vibe of Desert Daze. The festival has taken place at Joshua Tree in recent years, but will move to Moreno Beach in Lake Perris, California this year. The festival will take place Friday, October 12 until Sunday, October 14.
Also part of the initial lineup are Death Grips, Mercury Rev performing Deserter’s Songs, Los Angeles indie rock favorites Warpaint, Ty Segall & White Fence, Chelsea Wolfe, Malcolm Mooney of Can, Connan Mockasin, Preoccupations, A Place to Bury Strangers, King Khan & The Shrines, Shannon & The Clams, Pond, and Kevin Morby.
The festival added to their lineup with a May 7 announcement. Additions to the lineup included Jarvis Cocker (introducing Jarv Is), Earth performing The Bees Made Honey in the Lion’s Skull, HINDS, Wand, and more. View the full lineup at the bottom of the page. Another announcement added King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard to the bill.
