We all want more from our musical festival than good music these days and Love Machine certainly wins on that front.

The location is unreal – it is a secluded spot in the sun-baked mountains of Jacumba that allows you to submerge yourself in music, health and wellness tucked away in the shadows of the California Desert.

This escapist getaway features inspirational music, art, mindful and holistic workshops, yoga, and healthy lifestyle awareness as well as this year an all new third stage for music.

That music came from Âme, Ida Engberg, Roman Flugel, Rodriguez Jr, Doc Martin, Oliver Koletzki, Riva Starr, Marc Houle, Colyn, Jimi Jules, Jennifer Cardini, Sacha Robotti, Oona Dahl and DJ Three.

Add in all manner of performances and workshops from local talents as well as stars from around the world, live art and great food and you have a perfect way to spend a few days restoring your sense of inner peace.

Here are some of the best photos that capture its unique magic.
