desert daze stageFellow space travelers, the fruits of your labor have finally come full circle. With Desert Daze 2018 announcing it’s final additions to the lineup for this year’s event at Moreno Beach in Lake Perris, CA, the stage is set for festival season to reach for the stars in an out of this world finale!

Taking place October 12th-14th, Desert Daze headliner Tame Impala will now be joined by shoegaze titans My Bloody Valentine for a one-two punch sure to turn heads from all over the globe. In addition, Phase III introduces famed noise rock legend Steve Albini, who will be performing with Shellac as well as curating a speaking engagement. Expect other rock and indie staples such as Tame Impala side project GUM (along with other Tame Impala offshoot Pond already announced), as well as Escape-ism and Julia Holter, who boasts an entire string ensemble to go along with her performance. The final transmission before showtime is a welcome addition of talent to pool with an already outrageous lineup.
