10.  THEY CARE.

This Music Festival actually cares about YOU. Created by musicians and some of the most down to earth and coolest people who genuinely LOVE music – you can bet they put their heart and soul into making this festival experience truly magical just for you. They didn’t just punch some data into Pollstar on what bands will draw the most people, but they created a cohesive festival with friends, family and good rock & roll music.

9. ART.

If you haven’t been to Desert Daze before than you are in for a treat. Held this year at the Institute of Mentalphysics, there will be art installations everywhere you look, flooding your senses and truly giving you a magical experience.

8. CAMPING.

Get dirty. Sleep under the stars. Make new friends and remember you don’t need much more than this to really live. Snag your camping passes here.

7. JOSHUA TREE.

This desert might be one of the most magical places on earth. Between the Mojave & Colorado ecosystems come these twisted trees that each have their own personality, feeling like you’re in a Dr. Seuss book, get ready to feel the energy from this sacred land in your soul.

6. PRIMUS. MY NAME IS MUD. Do I need to say more?

5. DANCE PARTY.

If you’ve been cramped up at your desk busting out emails all week, than here’s your chance to release that energy and DANCE with people who actually love live music.

4.  ANDREW W.K.

If you follow this guy on Facebook than you know that PARTYING is key. But there is so much more. His daily advice and love to fans on the keys to happiness are so real. If I have one PARTY TIP for this festival, it’s not to miss ANDREW W.K.

3. WASHED OUT.

Swoooooon. If you’re ready to enter your mind into Paracosm than look no further. Ernest Greene’s chillwave beats and silky smooth lyrics will make you fall in love with your neighbor.

2. KING GIZZARD AND THE WIZARD LIZARD.

These aussies will blow your brains out. Don’t believe me? HA.

1.  THAT FUCKING PANDA.

OKAY so this may be biased…but if you’ve been following ListenSD and been to any of our shows, than you may have seen a crowd surfing panda. Get ready for the some weird panda shit this weekend and let’s have a dance battle if you’re ready for it.
