Founded in 2003, the bi-annual (May & Oct) Joshua Tree Music Festival is held at the gateway to the world-renowned National Park. JTMF is a resource-generating powerhouse of passionate creativity, community empowerment, and arts education for all ages. A family-inclusive global music experience in the magical Mojave. Committed to radical inclusion, these four-day funky desert-style festivals create experiences where passion, purpose, family, and friends come together, and the boundary between performer and patron is blurred. The music is diverse and eclectic, from dance-world-electro-funk’n groove to soulful global-ethno melodies.
JTMF promotes personal growth through a variety of multidisciplinary workshops, such as yoga and movement, visual arts, music, and myth. A robust schedule of Kidsville activities makes JTMF one of the top family-friendly festivals in the country. Magnificent art installations and a world market further inspire intrigue and invite festival goers who enjoy rich and profound positive interactions with other attendees, leaving recharged (not depleted). The experience is enhanced when embraced in the great outdoors amongst fellow music lovers.
The Joshua Tree Music Festival is a family-friendly event, creating an all-ages audience. The eclectic line-ups draw a diverse crowd of discerning live music fans who love the outdoors. The National Park is one of the premier rock climbing destinations in the world (2 million visitors annually). People come to climb and dance. Many come for the festival and stay for a vacation of camping and adventure in the park. The festival is an EXPERIENCE where groups of families and friends come once or twice a year to truly commune, revel, and bond.
