We seek to provide a space for you to dance, discuss, share, create, listen, explore, gyrate, vibrate, and connect.
A meeting of open minds, Desiderata is a grassroots venture fueled by exuberance and a passionate, promiscuous interest in music. We believe in biodiversity. We believe the more the merrier.
THIS IS YOUR FESTIVAL!!! Come as you are or dress to impress.
Excite us, inspire us, play with us, evolve with us, and expand our collective universe. Use and be used by a profusion of stimuli. Enjoy 4 days of live psytrance, jam bands, dub and more.
Check out various causes, engage in workshops and lectures, and attend indie film premieres and multimedia performances. Converse with enthusiasts, artists, activists, abductees, conspiracy theorists, all manner of humans and their friends, terrestrial and otherwise; most importantly, HAVE A GOOD TIME!
We hope to foster community in an environment which enables an amazing experience, leaving you invigorated. Both global and local in its philosophy, we want you to take something personal away from Desiderata, and to get involved as it grows in the years to come.
And now for the fun stuff….. This is the current lineup with much more to be added.

“And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should… And whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.”
