The Fall Joshua Tree Music Festival is produced by a family of friends and funsters convinced that music is the soul of life, and that art enriches and saves lives. We're looking for Sonicbids artists who reflect the energy of this festival and bring positive and uplifting music to this family-friendly festival.

The event is October 10-13, 2019

The Opportunity

The festival is an experience that's enhanced when embraced in the great outdoors amongst fellow music lovers.  An intimate setting, where the distinction between artist and audience is blurred, and a passionate performance can be truly relished in close proximity to the stage. Add FREE water to patrons, no service charges on reasonably priced tickets, this festival is for the true lovers of music, nature and healthy living. 

The Band

We're looking for unique and uplifting music in many genres. The music is diverse and eclectic, from dance-world-electro-funk'n groove to soulful global-ethno melodies. The line up features talented artists who are not (yet) household names. Most likely you won't hear these artists on the radio, or see them at other major festivals. We showcase up & coming, white-hot, have-to-see-them-now-before-they-get-big type of roster, with artists that are still hungry, honing their craft, and creating unique, original sounds. 

Artists who have performed at JTMF, then gone on to successful music careers include Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Elle King, the Avett Brothers, Brett Dennen, John Butler Trio, Trombone Shorty, Deer Tick, Trampled by Turtles, Chicano Batman, Railroad Earth, Orgone, Valerie June, Greensky Bluegrass and more.

The Gig

The Joshua Tree Lake Campground (Joshua Tree, CA) is home to JTMF. Nestled against the Copper Mountains, bordering BLM land, with sweeping views of the otherworldly National Park, this 40 acre, the privately owned venue is an ideal locale for this intimate festival. This site features plenty of space in the campground, hot showers & RV hook-ups, and camping is a short stroll from the lake area and music bowl. Two stages, a world market, and organic food purveyors complete the circle that is the music bowl. Live music alternates continuously on two stages in one area so you don't miss a beat.
