ABOUT DESERT HEARTS:
Over the past five years, the Desert Hearts Family has found itself at the center of a dusty movement, fostering intimate experiences of sonic joy and unbounded love across the globe. Part boutique festival, part record label, and part globetrotting party brigade, this ragtag crew of dreamers has emerged as a vibe-focused force radiating a conscious ethos of House, Techno and Love.
In November 2012, Desert Hearts began as a 200-person renegade gathering deep in the Mojave Desert, dreamt up by the DH’s founding quintet of Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, Porkchop, Marbs, & Kristoff McKay. The intrepid crew barely survived a set of extreme weather conditions and unfortunate circumstances, but that first party sparked a fire.
In just a few short years what began as a nomadic gathering of friends, has evolved into the darling of the West Coast house and techno scene. Though each edition of the festival may sell out, the DH Crew made the decision to keep the events intimate, ensuring that the love, radical self-expression and positive energy of that first adventure remains at its beating heart. It’s what has attracted world-class bookings like Tiefschwarz, DJ Harvey, Monkey Safari, Rodriguez Jr., DJ T, Claude VonStroke, Marc Houle, Olivier Giacomotto, Mark Henning, M.A.N.D.Y, and many more.
