Miss this years Levitation Festval? Desert Stars Festival might resolve that dilemma.
The 2015 lineup was most recently announced and includes acts such as Dead Meadow, Rain Parade, Mr. Elevator & the Brain Hotel, Matt Hollywood of the Brian Jonestown Massacre and the Lemonheads.Thus providing another convergence of both renown and upcoming artist in the garage rock, 90s alternative and psychedelic pop music scenes.
Fully funded by a Kickstarter campaign this summer, the independent festival will be held in Pioneertown, CA.; a small tour two hours east of Los Angeles and near Joshua Tree National Park, that was once used as an Old Western movie set.
A statement on the Desert Stars website reads:
Early on, our model was to put on the best event possible and donate any revenue we made to environmental charities. By the skin of our teeth each year we managed to do just that. Moving forward, our aim is to continue to support both our community of artists as well as find new ways to give back. Continuing the goal set forward in 2014, Proceeds from this year’s festival will go towards the purchase of a land trust in the region with the goal of creating a new home for the festival beginning in 2016 or 2017.
You can purchase weekend or daily passes via TicketFly.
