Loving Those Desert Hearts

Desert Hearts truly embodies what it means to be a movement. The DIY party crew has worked their tails off fostering a global community that is in love. They’ve brought their party spirit from the Mojave Desert to premiere clubbing destinations around the world, onwards to the living rooms of their devout followers via DHtv in lockdown. The team behind it all, Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, Marbs, and Porky, never imagined just how far their creation would take them and their growing family, all on the back of House, Techno & Love.

Even with all the obstacles thrown their way, Desert Hearts Festival has remained the beating heart of the movement. The brand has created a portal into a utopian world crafted as much by the participants as the organizers. And now, the DH crew has announced the lineup for its ten year anniversary at its new and improved venue! It all goes down at Lake Perris, California on April 28-May 2, 2022.

This is going to be the biggest and best event to date!!!

The DH crew is recruiting its most wide-reaching and eclectic lineup of all time. To start us off strong, Detroit legend and Planet E boss Carl Craig will bring the heat. He is joined by fellow Detroit icons, FXHE Records founder Omar-S alongside the soulful Kenny Larkin.

DH Fest 2022 also brings to bear some of international clubland’s most famed superstars like Robag Wruhme. He is known for his unconventional productions, eclectic full-lengths, and adventurous mix sets. He’ll be joined by Miami-staple Danny Daze, enigmatic producer Super Flu and Radio Eins’ broadcast star Anja Schnieder. This isn’t it, though!

You’ll be loving all the daytime house and disco that will be on full display beachside at Lake Perris this year. Add in DJ Harvey, dubbed the “the Keith Richards of dance music” by Rolling Stone Magazine and we’re in for a party! He will join Juan MacLean, who has served as both a NYC and international fixture for over 15 years. Also featured: Firehouse Recordings’ Kim Ann Foxman, a Hawaii born artist and DJ who shot to fame as a vocalist before garnering worldwide acclaim as a selector, Brooklyn born Chicagoan DJ Heather, and pillar of West Coast rave Doc Martin. The techno and house game is strong with this festival!

We’re not done yet though. Desert Heart Black, the melodic subsidiary of DH’s parent imprint, will also flush out its desire to expand its music curation in 2022. They’re ready to include the notable German techno duo Township Rebellion and emerging Russian act Yulia Niko, known for her creative and diverse techno sound, are both set to perform. Next up, Spanish dark tech house veteran Oscar L, whose sound marries classic and peculiar influences, will also play alongside cinematic producer RINZEN.

Gotta have the fan faves! Behind recent releases on Desert Hearts Records, fans will experience DH family sets from Kevin Knapp, Lubelski, RYBO, Andreas Henneberg, Evan Casey and the omni-talented Beth Lydi, whose acclaim has reached clubs and ears as far as Oslo, Berlin, Amsterdam, Rio De Janeiro, and Copenhagen.

Ready to join in on the fun?

This magical location was scouted for the ability to allow the Desert Hearts Family and culture to thrive 24 hours a day. Lake Perris, California will offer a nonstop space for the event’s renowned vibe and forward-thinking music. You’ll find this venue in SoCal, less than two hours from Los Angeles and San Diego. Lake Perris offers amazing potential and so many new amenities that weren’t available before! This includes premium campsites, bathrooms with showers, and an endless grass dance floor beneath snow-capped mountains! Add in the beach and lake for swimming… and this is perfection. 

The Desert Hearts community will of course be sad to let Los Coyotes Indian Reservation go as its prodigal home, but the magical memories made in this sacred space will forever fuel the feeling of the movement.

Join the Desert Hearts community for their grand return and most magical festival yet

Thursday, April 28- Monday, May 2, 2022.
