The wait is over! After announcing last summer that they will not be holding a “Fall” festival, Desert Hearts just dropped their Spring line-up and we can all finally rest easy and prepare for another glorious weekend on the reservation. Desert Hearts Spring festival will be held in northern San Diego County, nestled in the valley of the Los Coyotes Indian Reservation from March 31st to April 3rd. To those who have been to this location for a previous Desert Hearts festival, there is nothing like driving up that hill at 20mph and hitting the dirt road, as the ‘thump’ from the Funktion One’s gets louder and louder. The team at Desert Hearts have been posting current photos on their Facebook of the reservation and, due to all the rain we have been getting in Socal, it looks more green than ever before! Definitely setting up to be their most magical festival yet!

The Spring line-up hosts some familiar talent as well as some artists you might need to do a bit of research on. Alongside your favorites like: Mikey Lion, Porkchop, Marbs, Lee Reynold, Deep Jesus, Justin Campbell, Atish, D!NK, Rybo and Kevin Anderson, sit some insane talent: The Glitz, Taches, Monolink, Ben Seagren and more! Desert Hearts has made it a point to step out of the box with their bookings and if you talk to anyone who has attended an event before, they put 100% of their trust on the crew for putting together a proper party! As music is a big role in the festival, everything else is just as important to them. The volunteers, vendors, artists and guests will all have a VIP experience. There is only one stage… one vibe.
