Itching to hit up a music festival this year?

Now that the live music industry has returned to its pre-pandemic ways, there have recently been a slew of festival lineup announcements in California and the latest just happens to be Desert Daze.

After all, on the same day that Ohana Encore announced a return to Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, the always-psychedelic Desert Daze has also revealed plans to celebrate its 10th anniversary at another beach in Southern California not anywhere near the ocean.

The three-day boutique music festival, which has found a home at Moreno Beach inside the 1,800-acre Lake Perris State Recreation Area since 2018, has put together a roster that falls right in line with past lineups as Tame Impala get set to perform their 2012 semifinal LP Lonerism in its entirety. Joining them as headliners will be Iggy Pop and King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, both of which are Daze alumni.

Desert Daze’s undercard in 2022, meanwhile, will be rounded out by Chicano Batman, The Marías, Sky Ferreira, BADBADNOTGOOD, JPEGMAFIA, Mild High Club, Men I Trust, Cortex, Fuzz, Pond, Perfume Genius, Aldous Harding, Sleaford Mods, DakhaBrakha, Boy Pablo, Cymande and more. See the poster above for the rest of the scheduled acts.

Three-day GA and VIP passes to Desert Daze are available to purchase here starting at $299 and $649, respectively, during the fest’s presale before the general public on-sale begins this Thursday, June 16th at 10 a.m. PT. Don’t sleep on picking up tickets for what’s sure to be an exciting weekend in the desert!

Back for its ninth edition this summer, Make Music Pasadena will once again feature a lineup of emerging artists from all across the world.

Taking over the streets of Pasadena for one Saturday in June, the festival has booked Atlas Genius, Bear Hands, The Mowgli’s, Small Black, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Papa, James Supercave and Profiles to perform this year.

Produced and organized by the Old Pasadena Management District and Playhouse District Association, Make Music Pasadena has boasted such notable acts as Grimes, GROUPLOVE, Matt and Kim, Warpaint, Best Coast, Ra Ra Riot, Surfer Blood, YACHT, Robert DeLong and many more.

Hailing from South Australia, Atlas Genius will serve as this year’s headliner more than three years after their debut LP When It Was Now peaked at No. 34 on the U.S. Billboard 200. Since then, the Adelaide duo comprised of brothers Keith Jeffery (lead vocals, guitar) and Michael Jeffery (drums) has released its second studio album Inanimate Objects and embarked on a 2016 spring tour that wraps up in LA at the El Rey Theatre on April 30th.

The free, non-profit event attracts roughly 50,000 attendees each year, running from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. across five different stages and inside 30-plus venues spanning 20 city blocks. Located just 15 minutes from downtown LA, MMP is said to be modeled after Paris’ Fête de la Musique, an annual celebration of music that also takes place in June.

More than 150 bands are expected to play this year, with a multitude of genres — from world music to post-punk to indie rock — being represented onstage in the City of Roses.
