In the spirit of safely enjoying the medicinal magic of the live music experience, the Joshua Tree Music Festival family is thrilled to host a series of outdoor shows this spring. These one-night shows will be intimate, pod-based, physically distant and strictly limited in capacity to adhere to California’s Guidelines for Outdoor Live Performances.

The line-up includes some JTMF favorites; Steve Poltz (inspired troubadour with the keen-edged wit that won’t quit), Diggin Dirt (captivating & funk-tastic; a force of nature), Con Brio (deep electrifying soul & psych-rock), and Las Cafeteras ((uniquely Los Angeleno mash-up of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia and rock).

“This is a first step on the journey back towards the Joshua Tree Music Festival as we know and love it,” says festival founder Barnett English. “We are thrilled and grateful to start bringing back live music in a safe and responsible way. This is a responsibility not taken lightly; we’ll be vigilant with covid safe practices. With everyone’s cooperation (we are all in this together!), we are confident that these small shows can take place safely,” English continues.

These events are produced in adherence with California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy Tier 2 Guidelines for Outdoor Live Performances, effective April 1. Tickets are sold by the pod, and each 8x8ft pod can accommodate up to four people. Shows will be in the main music bowl at the Joshua Tree Music Festival venue at the Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground.

The Joshua Tree Music Festival has taken place every May since 2003 and every May and October since 2006. The four-day festivals are immersive, inclusive, and inspiring experiences catering to music loving funsters and families with a sense of adventure.  Family and friends come together with passion, purpose and a mission to foster social interaction on a deep level, and to create positive, life-changing moments.
