10th annual Joshua Tree Music Festival

If the high security, enormous prices, long lines, and vast crowds of Coachella are too much to bear just to see a dead rapper perform, then check out the Joshua Tree Music Festival, May 18-20.  This homegrown music fest (as opposed to Coachella which is just outsiders bringing their party to the desert), is in its 10th year, and offers an incredible lineup of international artists that will make for a weekend-long party under clear blue desert skies and starry nights.

Just like the difference between the hi-desert and the Coachella Valley, the Joshua Tree Music Festival is much more relaxed, lower priced, more freeing and intimate.  You can dance right next to one of the stages, and camp (camp, not sleep), out at the Joshua Tree Lake Campground where the festival is held.

The Joshua Tree Music Festival has evolved over the years, and this year, it offers musical acts from around the globe - India, Columbia, Argentina, Tunisia, Mali, Canada, Algeria, Ecuador, Nigeria, Italy, Sierra Leone, and the UK, as well as groups from across the country - New York, DC, and California.  A few local groups are sprinkled in the mix as well.
