Recipe for Bonefest 2016:

  • Add 7 or 8 cups of tasty live bands.
  • Stir in one DJ for a little extra flavor.
  • A pinch of a costume contest.
  • For full flavor, blend in a Sunday Bloody Mary brunch.
  • Mix together in the coolest roadhouse you can find, and do this under a sky full of stars while quenching your thirst with some witches' brew.


The Palms is open until 8 p.m. for food and drink after your long drive. Then join us for a large group campfire (location TBA). Bring your singing voice, your guitar, your beverage, but most importantly yourself. Check out those stars...!!!

During the day on Saturday, prior to the event, enjoy the beauty of Joshua Tree Natl Park, check out the Integratron, or just relax and get ready for the big night..but make sure to leave time to put on your costume!
