Hello Desert Hearts Family!

Over the past few years Desert Hearts has seen tremendous growth and has transformed into a full blown movement of love and community. It's truly blown our minds how beautiful our family has come to be. We've brought our love and our vibe to the far reaches of North America and now it's time to celebrate with our beloved Desert Hearts Family once again on our home court in Southern California! This November we are incredibly excited to announce a super special celebration for our Desert Hearts 3 Year Anniversary!

As our family grows, it becomes more clear that our purpose is a cosmic, universal based movement to spread love through music and community. As our family expands, we continue to perfect the Desert Hearts Experience and that's why we decided to up the ante for this special occasion and host 100 hours of nonstop House, Techno, & Love! Expect more music, more theme camps, more art, more interaction and more straight up love! Taking place on November 5th - 9th at the majestic Los Coyotes Indian Reservation in Southern California, it's our pleasure to host you beautiful souls as we once again go off the grid in order to push this love movement as far as it can go...

~ ♥ About Desert Hearts ♥ ~

Desert Hearts is a bi-annual music and arts festival. We are a community, a movement of love celebrating life with beats. A place where acceptance, creativity and passions flourish. We are an intimate gathering of open-minded and like-minded individuals where friendships blossom and smiles surround you. A place to learn, grow, inspire and release. A safe haven away from Babylon where everyone can connect with nature, be themselves and do what makes then happy. One stage, one vibe, and one beautiful growing family.

House, Techno and Love was the foundation for our first small renegade in the Mojave and has continued to be the basis for our gatherings. We have come a long way since the birth of Desert Hearts and although our family has grown, our vibe and high standard of music has stayed true to our values.

This past year was especially groundbreaking for us. We established our record label and have had chart topping success with our first Desert Hearts Records releases. We brought our festival vibe to many cities through our City Hearts parties in San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles. We established our community Desert ARTS program as a commitment to showcasing community artists. And we have built our playa presence with a very successful second year of our Burning Man camp the Pile Palace.

Desert Hearts was founded by San Diego based friends and DJs, Christopher Kristoff, Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, Marbs, Porkchop, & Deep Jesus. Together we work endless hours, putting our heart and soul into creating a beautiful environment for community to gather. We welcome you to come join the magic we all create as we come together as one. We Are All Desert Hearts.

~ ♥ Location & Weather ♥ ~

The Los Coyotes Indian Reservation is truly a gem to behold. Tucked in to the mountains surrounding Warner Springs (San Diego County), it brings the best of the high desert and forest together all in one. Trust us when we say we don’t know of a more beautiful place in Southern California to host our festival.

Temperatures can range from the 70s in the day to the 30s at night. Be prepared for extreme heat and cold. There are plenty of open spaces as well as ample areas shaded by trees.

There will be plenty of parking that is reasonably close to all camping areas. If you wish to bring an RV, you must purchase a pass in advance. If you would like to camp with your car, you must purchase a pass in advance.

The campground is rustic so there are no showers or functional bathrooms. We will be providing ample portapotties that will be spread throughout the venue.

~ ♥ DesertARTS ♥ ~

DH Arts Program aka DesertARTS was founded to provide a structured management platform for the involvement of community based artists and performers to create a truly unique atmosphere embedded with artistic participation and imagination.

Art and dance are the ultimate form of self expression and it is through these platforms that we celebrate all that make us human. With the growth of Desert Hearts we have continued to focus on the expansion of our arts and outreach for community participation. We have fully committed to hosting a wide variety of artists, which include but not limited to, live painting, face/body painting, displayed art, interactive art, art installations and performance art.

♥ Live Artists ♥

TBA in the coming weeks. Just know that we've invested in more artists and art installations than ever before.

♥ Performance Art ♥

TBA in the coming months.

~ ♥ Yoga and Healing Sanctuary ♥ ~

Being a boutique festival that's focused so heavily on the music and vibe, we at Desert Hearts are now more than ever committed to creating space for community healers to gather and share their knowledge. Our village this year will feature healing domes from Sacred Spaces, Wet Dreams, Earthing Tea and more. Shane Chunephisal ( has taken lead of organizing and managing our yoga and healing coordination. We will be hosting various forms of healing included but not limited to Yoga, Workshops, Sound Healing, Crystal Healing, Reiki, Energy Work, Spoken Word and Relax/Recharge Zones.

~ ♥ Suggestion “Box" ♥ ~

If you have any suggestions for us that aren’t related to music, please fill out the following form. We are DH are always trying to improve all aspects of our gathering and appreciate any input you have.

~ ♥ Creative Participation ♥ ~

Any creative energy you can bring to the gathering please do! Have some cool deco for your camp? Have some tripped out clothes or costumes? Have any paintings or art sculptures? Like to dance like never seen before? Well this is the place to do it! Let you're creative genius flourish because that is what makes us so beautiful and unique.

~ ♥ Rules and Regulations ♥ ~

We are an open community where you can experience freedom in many ways however we have a few rules you must follow when attending Desert Hearts:

~ ABSOLUTELY NO ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES OR ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR OF ANY KIND. Including NOS tanks, balloons or any kind of drug use. Desert Hearts has a strict Zero Tolerance policy. You will be asked to leave if you violate this.

~ 21 & Up Event; ID's will be checked at the gate.

~ No re-entry if you leave the festival. Bring enough water and ice to last you throughout the weekend--they will not be sold or provided on grounds.

~ No dogs (service dogs excluded, but must be identified and leashed).

~ No renegade sound systems--basically anything larger than a small speaker. One stage, one vibe has always been our policy.

~ No littering, especially be mindful of bottles and cigarette butts. Do your part to help clean up trash when you see it.

~ Pack it in and pack it out please!!! When you leave trash at the campgrounds it puts a lot of strain on our volunteer team.


THIS IS A LEAVE NO TRACE EVENT! Pack it in, pack it out. Please do not leave your trash bags with us. Let's leave the beautiful grounds of the Los Coyotes Indian Reservation better than we found them!

PLEASE do not leave any bottles or trash by the dance floor/speakers. If you see trash or bottles out on the ground or left out, please help clean it up and keep our land beautiful. There will be recycling containers by the stage.

It's a good idea to bring two trash bags, one for trash and one for recycling. Please pocket your cigarette butts and pick up any butts if you see them on the ground. No glow sticks or glow sand please! Also, please no feather boas or anything that will create MOOP.

~ ♥ Safety and Security ♥ ~

Desert Hearts will be staffed with a fully licensed and insured security team at all times. This does not mean you should leave your car unlocked or personal belongings out in the open. Desert Hearts is not responsible for anything that is lost or stolen.

At all our outdoor gatherings there will be a trained medical staff on standby during the entire duration of the event. If you have any medical needs please find the medic tent and they will be more than happy to service you. Please be cautious of any known allergies, illnesses, or infections you may have. Also, be cautious of your surroundings, some of our locations are known to have such things as poison oak.

~ ♥ FAQs ♥ ~

Q: Are tickets returnable or transferable?

A: Tickets are non-refundable, which is clearly stated in the disclaimer provided on our ticketing site. However, we do offer the ability to transfer your ticket into someone else’s name. To transfer your ticket to someone else’s name, please contact the ticket provider directly.

Q: Can we bring dogs with us camping?

A: Please leave your pooch at home unless a registered service dog, then must be leashed and identifiable.

Q: Can I spin fire at the event?

A: The fire risk at our current venue is high. As that is the case, there will be no unauthorized fire spinning. If we have fire spinning they will be pre approved licensed and insured performers only.

Q: Why are ticket prices so expensive? Where does the money go?

A: Ticket prices directly reflect the magnitude of each festival. For festivals with multiple international headliners, art installations, interactive art, live art performers, camping, theme camps, etc. the ticket prices tend to be more expensive. For smaller events that only involve local talent, or are not 3 day camp outs, the tickets are much cheaper. All revenue is used to pay our musicians, artists, and vendors fairly. Any left over revenue is used to grow our community and festivals.

Q: How do I book one of the Desert Hearts DJs or include the crew in one of our own festivals/events?

A: Please email us at

Q: How do I get onto the Desert Hearts mailing list?

A: You are automatically signed up with our mailing list when you purchase a ticket to a Desert Hearts event. If there are no events in the near future you can sign up on the home page of the Desert Hearts website.

Q: I’m out of the country and your ticketing site seems to have issues with my credit card. Is there another option for me to purchase tickets?

A: Yes, if you know someone in the U.S. you can have him or her purchase your ticket and specify your name for will call. If you do not know someone in the states, please email us at
