Flashback Friday: Desert Hearts Sets Of The Past
Nina T. Ravers

SoCal’s favorite renegade turned slightly “above-ground” house & techno festival Desert Hearts is making its way back to the Los Coyotes Reservation this April 27-30. The festival, on it’s 5th year, has grown so much from a small friend group partying in the woods to hosting headliners such as Justin Martin and selling out to thousands of people last year. Needless to say, the hype is real. Desert Hearts is undoubtably one of our favorites.

During their massive 2017, the DH family made their way to festivals across the country with takeovers at EDC Las Vegas, Coachella’s Do LaB stage, Moonrise Festival and more, and brought their City Hearts urban party to Playa Del Carmen, Costa Rica, Brazil, Mexico City, New York, Miami, Austin, San Francisco, Portland, and many more.

So for this #FlashBackFriday – we bring you some of our favorite sets from past Desert Hearts festivals. Vibe out and enjoy these – and grab your tickets here since we’re positive this year will be another sold out festival.

Though the lineup is still unannounced, past lineups have had legends like Justin Martin, Dave Seaman, Doc Martin, Edu Imbernon, Marques Wyatt, jozif, DJ Garth, Sacha Robotti, David Scuba, and Christian Martin – with additional acts like Ardalan, Deep Jesus, and Desert Hearts Records flag-bearers TACHES, M.O.N.R.O.E.,The Glitz, Rybo, Fritz Carlton, Kevin Anderson, and DINK.

Desert Hearts Festival is a journey best experienced through the open-minded and love-enhanced state of mind in which it was conceived. Defined by an unadulterated sense of being and a focus on authentic connection, this much talked about festival has stepped onto the world’s stage with a new generation in tow.

We are all Desert Hearts.
