Desert Daze Announces Full 2019 Lineup

The lineup for this year’s iteration of the California psych-oriented fest Desert Daze was already shaping up to be characteristically intriguing. In periodic “artist transmissions” through the year, they’ve already announced headlining sets from Stereolab, Flying Lotus 3D, and the Flaming Lips (performing The Soft Bulletin the whole way through). And today, the festival is back with the full lineup, featuring several more exciting additions.

Up at the top of the poster, Desert Daze adds a rap headliner with Wu-Tang Clan, who will be performing Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) in its entirety. Ween will also join Wu-Tang and the Lips in revisiting a beloved classic album by presenting Chocolate And Cheese in full. Other newly announced acts include Khruangbin, Alvvays, Moses Sumney, Jessica Pratt, and Pussy Riot. Plus, Devo will kick off their farewell tour at the festival.

Just like last year, Desert Daze is taking over California’s Moreno Beach in order to house all this music. Which means this year’s installment of the festival promises to once more bring a laidback atmosphere, exploring all different corners of psychedelic music (and a few other sounds, too), on a lake surrounded by mountains. More people should do festivals this way! Until then, check out the full Desert Daze 2019 lineup below:
