Desert Hearts Festival 2023 • Los Angeles MAY 5-8th

Desert Hearts Festival, one of North America’s most celebrated boutique electronic music events, which has today released the star studded lineup for its return to Lake Perris, California on May 5-8.

Over many years of fandom turned professionals, the DH crew has always hoped of hosting their ultimate idols at their flagship festival. Now those dreams have been realized with the 2023 lineup being topped by UK multi-genre pioneer Skream, 17 Steps icons Dusky, Turbo labelhead TIGA, and Dirtybird boss Claude VonStroke.

Billing continues with a mix of some of the scene’s most buzzed about names. Lo-fi originator DJ Seinfeld makes his DH debut alongside dancefloor favorite Justin Martin, progressive house sensation Miss Monique, Hot creations founder Lee Foss, elrow resident Tini Gessler, 90’s rave revival production duo Prospa, and Club Bad’s percussive house frontrunner Melé. Additional highlights include Polish house duo Catz ’n Dogz, emerging tech house producer Eddy M, and next generation house risers VNSSA and Mary Droppinz.

Additional highlights include CINTHIE, Partiboi69, Gene Farris, Derrick Carter b2b Mark Farina, DJ Minx, DJ Holographic, Soul Clap, SHADED, Lubelski, Enamour, Eskuche, Rybo and more as listed below. There will also be a Desert Hearts Crew Opening B2B, Desert Hearts Crew Closing B2B, and very special guest performer to be announced.

Of course, performances from the Desert Hearts crew remain the building blocks of the event’s finely curated schedule. From the chugging four on the floor tones of Desert Hearts Records label head Mikey Lion and out-there sonic journeys of Lee Reynolds, to the deep and melodic techno soundscapes of Desert Hearts Black’s Marbs and the scrappy musical encyclopedia of Porky, these are the sets that keep the community coming back.

Desert Hearts Festival returns to the idyllic shores of Lake Perris with a host of improvements rooted in feedback from their devout community. Leading these changes will be the event’s pivot back to their celebrated One Stage, One Vibe format, a tradition fostered since the inception of the event which brings the community together on a single dancefloor. DH 2023 will also feature a tighter and more cohesive layout, theme camps right off the dance floor, more shade throughout the grounds and stage-side car camping on grass. The beach will remain a focal point, with the addition of interactive activities and watersports.
