Hosted by High Desert Soundings


High Desert Soundings is a unique music festival dedicated to bringing together musicians, performers and sound artists from across the spectrum of experimental sound practices. Featured artists draw from styles including but not limited to new and contemporary concert music, free jazz and improvisation, noise, drone and outsider ‘pop’ music. The festival takes place outside of the Joshua Tree region of the Mojave Desert in California, and thus provides a unique space for artists and audiences to experience the often demanding and immersive works we present.

High Desert Soundings 2019 will take place on May 10th and 11th and will feature exciting artists like Wolf Eyes, Sarah Hennies, David Dunn, and Palberta.  Most performances will be at the Palms Bar and Restaurant in Wonder Valley, where an outdoor stage, cheap drinks, delicious food, and free on-site camping provide the setting for mesmerizing performances. There will also be a special offsite event featuring performances from David Dunn and Jeph Jerman which will offer the audience the opportunity to engage with the landscape of the High Desert. Our goal is to present the kinds of artists we believe to be representative of a continuously expanding and complexly interwoven contemporary musical landscape.
