New 2-Day Music Festival Coming to Indio, CA in October
October 7th & 8th, 2017 at Empire Polo Fields
This is not a mirage… a new music festival is on the horizon and it’s called “Desert Oasis Music Festival.” It will take place on October 7th & 8th, 2017 at the Empire Polo fields in Indio, CA, and is presented by Empire Music Ventures, the same company that produces local favorite Rhythm, Wine & Brews Experience.
Desert Oasis Music Festival is a 2-day festival featuring 24 live bands, on site camping and a food line up that rivals the best festivals in the world. Festival headliners include Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley and Rebelution along with Steel Pulse, J Boog, and others, giving this initial program a solid reggae vibe. E-40, Reel Big Fish and Los Lobos expand the sonic selection into hip hop, ska and latin rock genres, offering fans diversity and an opportunity to experience some amazing bands.
“Desert Oasis Music Festival is not genre specific. We do have a solid reggae line-up in our inaugural year, but we want to keep the festival’s line up diversified with other types of music,” said Alex Haagen, IV, Producer of Desert Oasis Music Festival and CEO of Empire Music Ventures.
Truly an oasis in the desert, Empire Polo Club is a world-class festival destination. The palm tree-lined grass polo fields, refreshing fountains, unique statuary and lush landscaping, coupled with ample parking and camping areas make it an ideal venue for a festival in October.
