This October, Joshua Tree Music Festival relaxes COVID capacity restrictions and returns with a full schedule of wildly talented artists. In true Joshua Tree Music Festival form, music will rotate between two stages from early til late creating a continuous sonic journey each day. The lineup is a diverse medley of genres and styles curated to seamlessly blend and build as the days progress. With just one stage live at a time, the artists and attendees feed into the intimate environment to create a truly unique shared experience. As Joshua Tree Music Festival’s growing community of music lovers will tell you, ‘if you know, you know’.

Highlights include: Ibibio Sound Machine: Vibrant electro-afro-funk outta London; Ghost-Note: Headed by Snarky Puppy’s multi Grammy–winning percussion duo of Robert Sput Searight and Nate Werth, Ghost-Note is an explosion of sound; Brass Against: A musical middle finger to today’s authoritarian machine. A collective group of musicians who share the goal of creating music to inspire social and personal change.

We’re delighted to move forward without capacity restrictions this October. That said, JTMF continues to be a very intimate and comfy environment for all ages. We are thrilled to welcome back international artists and return to continuous all-day music programming to offer up the full JTMF experience. October’s lineup is stacked with outrageously talented, skilled artists that we are truly honored to have on our stages! Says festival founder Barnett English.

 During breaks from the dance floor attendees can enjoy yoga and workshops, indulge in a massage at the Healing Oasis, or take a stroll around the lake and the grounds to take in the art and the raw beauty of the desert landscape.
