What is Desert Hearts?


We are fully committed to creating the most beautiful community-oriented house and techno gatherings, achieving an unforgettable energetic ambiance, while maintaining high musical integrity that focuses on the progression of the underground movement.


Desert hearts is a community, a movement of love celebrating life with beats. A place where acceptance, creativity and passions flourish. Its a gathering of open-minded and like-minded individuals where friendships blossom and smiles surround you–a place to learn, grow, inspire and release. It is a safe haven away from Babylon where everyone can connect with nature, be themselves and do what makes then happy. One stage, one vibe, one beautiful and growing family.

With a major focus on cutting edge house and techno incorporating the best Funktion-One sound system, most beautiful decor, art, artists, performers, yoga, workshops, sound healing and more, we are constantly striving to go above and beyond to create a truly magical outdoor music experience.


Desert Hearts was manifested from sheer determination and an abundance of positive energy in November of 2012 as a 300 person renegade Mojave gathering. Since then, we have grown tremendously, refining our abilities to produce world class house and techno gatherings.

Desert Hearts started as a collaboration of Christopher Kristoff and San Diego based DJs Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, Marbs and Porkchop. Andy Crane later joined the team. Together we put in our all, dedicating endless hours of our time to creating a beautiful place where we can gather and celebrate life through House, Techno, and Love.
