Desert Daze is your antidote to the typical desert gathering (think a noisier, more indie lineup than Coachella and less dirt than Burning Man). Though it’s close enough to L.A. to go just for the day, the fest caters to campers with easy access to hiking trails and a bazaar of mystics and wanderers. The fest is skipping its 2023 edition at Lake Perris (it’ll be back in 2024) in favor of Daze in the City, a series of closer-to-home concerts that include Les Claypool’s Frog Brigade, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Melody’s Echo Chamber, the Black Angels, the Dandy Warhols and Blonde Redhead.
