The Fall Joshua Tree Music Festival (JTMF) promises a diverse, lovingly curated line up from around the globe against a stunning desert backdrop.  The festival is a four-day event with camping onsite that caters to music loving funsters and families with a sense of adventure.

JTMF is known for hosting musical acts that you won’t have seen at every other festival this summer.  Some line-up highlights include global superstar and women’s rights activist Fatoumata Diawara (Mali), the dynamic Afro-Funk of Jupiter & Okwess (Congo), the electro-groove dance mavens The Egg (UK), the hip-hop & jazz fusion of Selah Poitier (Bahamas), and the raucous blues of Delgres (Guadaloupe).  The Monophonics, Matador Soul Sounds, Jungle Fire and Afrolicious will be keeping the funk alive, while the live-tronica of Everyman, Balkan Bump and House of Hamsa will ensure the dance party continues into the night.

A little closer to home, Joshua Tree is home to a burgeoning and diverse music scene. Local acts Gene Evaro Jr., Myshkin Warbler, Desert Rhythm Project, Jesika Von Rabbit and Giselle Woo and the Night Owls are also not to be missed.

One common thread you will find unites all the artists that take the JTMF stage, is that they deliver a potent live performance that makes an impact. The intimate nature of the festival really adds to this magic making attendees feel that they’re really in on something special.

“No long lines, hectic crowds, or hustle and bustle.  Joyous connections and positive, shared experiences permeate the spirits and minds of our festival-goers because the size of the fest is not too great” says founder Barnett English.

The experience is more than just music. Dozens of Playshops in song, movement, music, didgeridoo, drumming and more are scheduled throughout the weekend. Yoga classes from sunrise to sunset, a World Market & Healing Oasis can all be found on site. A robust schedule of activities at Kidsville places JTMF among the leading family-friendly festivals in the USA.

The 13th Annual Fall Joshua Tree Music Festival takes place Oct 4-7, 2018 at the Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground, Joshua Tree, CA. Early bird tickets are now on sale via the website at: www.joshuatreemusicfestival.com.
