Deset Daze Grows Roster with Slowdive and Wooden Shjips
Desert Daze has entered into phase four of its transmission and announced new additions to the lineup. The magnificent and quintessential shoegaze/dream pop group Slowdive joins the bill, along with modern West Coast psych rock/drone forerunners Wooden Shjips. These two bands carry with them a legacy of sonic groundbreaking and beautiful noise. Slowdive began their career in the late 1980’s with a rocky road and a reformation in 2014. They will be bringing a cool melody to the high desert, while Wooden Shjips will be bringing their minimalist drone rock de jour.
Other new additions to the main programming include Idles, Cosmonauts, L.A. Witch, Death Valley Girls, Vinyl Williams, Goon, Stonefield, Sugar Candy Mountain and The Mad Walls. They will be joining an already epic lineup featuring Tame Impala, My Bloody Valentine, and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.
For attendees looking for something a little different, after the regular festival schedule ends for the day, the lighting changes, the mood shifts and things get experimental with the inclusion of late night collaborative sets by Kikagaku Moyo with Boogarins and JJUUJJUU, plus full sets from Deap Vally, Lumerians, Prettiest Eyes and more to be revealed. Late night programming will take place on the BLOCK STAGE in the main grounds and will be available to all Desert Daze visitors. It could get weird, so hopefully everyone will be hydrated.
Taking place from October 12th-14th, Desert Daze promises to bring the best experience to Lake Perris in Southern California. Festival lovers who have been to Desert Daze praise it as the best of the bunch, and those who normally eschew the entire scene admit that Desert Daze is something different – and altogether better.
