Desert Hearts to Return In 2022, Celebrate 10-Year Anniversary In New SoCal Location
After succumbing to the wrath of the global pandemic and missing out on two years of revelry, the organizers of Desert Hearts have announced the festival's return in 2022 with a new location. Celebrating a decade of house, techno, and love, the eclectic techno and house music fest will take place April 28th to May 2nd, calling Lake Perris its new home.
Situated approximately two hours outside of Los Angeles and San Diego, Lake Perris State Recreation Area is a serene lakeside oasis surrounded by the suburban landscape that is the Inland Empire. The lake is situated in a mountain-rimmed valley and offers amenities including beaches, swimming, premium campsites, bathrooms with showers, and plentiful trees and grasslands.
This, of course, means that the Desert Hearts collective will be bidding farewell to its longtime home at the Los Coyotes Indian Reservation, where amenities were scarce.
As a way to cope with the loss of their flagship festival, Desert Hearts managed to elevate the spirits of its followers by airing popular livestreams during lockdowns, and eventually producing events at club venues across the country.
