Desert Hearts Lights Up The Night

Desert Hearts Festival Takes Over The Forest On July 4-8 at Playa Ponderosa, Arizona in Partnership with Phoenix’s Walter Productions

Desert Hearts excited us all with the announcement of its house and techno festival experience, happening July 4-8 at Playa Ponderosa – a remarkable private property located just outside Flagstaff, Arizona in the natural splendor of Coconino National Forest surrounded by majestic Ponderosa pine trees and Flagstaff’s San Francisco Peaks in the background. Aiming to re-spark the magic and freedom felt at their earlier Southern California events, returning to their roots with Walter Productions and taking us along for the ride!

Not only is Desert Hearts the festival collaboration of some incredibly creative minds, but it is also a globally touring DJ crew, and record label that blossomed from its humble roots to one of the most recognized brands in electronic music. These four best friends – Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, Marbs, and Porky – have molded Desert Hearts to be a home for free-spirited DIY ethos, with the renegade atmosphere they have been known for. This event will have around-the-clock music programming, a foundational ‘one-stage, one-vibe’ approach, and a unique festival layout with an interconnected arena of theme camps, live painters, installations, and art cars surrounding the dance floor.

Desert Hearts Returns To Its Roots
In Mikey Lion of Desert Hearts’ own words, “Join us as we write the next chapter of Desert Hearts Festival history on July 4th weekend in Flagstaff, AZ, amidst mountains and pine trees! Our new venue, the incredible Playa Ponderosa, is an intimate and beautiful property owned by friends familiar with the classic DH vibe. The theme of this festival is reconnecting with our roots and embracing the essence of what made Desert Hearts so special during our time at the Los Coyotes Indian Reservation from 2014 to 2019. This means an intimate and free environment with One Stage, One Vibe playing the full spectrum of House & Techno music nonstop all weekend. We are excited to be teaming up with our twin flame community, the Walter Fam, who you may know from their unreal venues in Phoenix, Walter Where?House and Walter Studios, or their incredible Camp Walter at Burning Man that is host to a fleet of radical art carts. We can’t wait to create unforgettable memories under the starry sky as we dance, connect, and celebrate the spirit of freedom, love, unity, and endless possibility! House, Techno, & Love… We Are All Desert Hearts.”

Desert Hearts and Walter have been fostering a relationship and throwing parties together for over a decade, and as someone who has attended many of their shows, I am certain that this festival will be incredible. Walter is known for its fleet of art cars, most notably ‘Walter’, the world’s largest VW Bus created from a retired fire truck which made its Burning Man debut in 2009. Walter now is the shining star at the center of a thriving Phoenix art scene. The creative venture has expanded to multiple venues including Walter Where? House, Walter Studio brought its art cars to Bonnaroo, EDC, and Life is Beautiful as well as nurtured its nonprofit organization, Walter Hive, that promotes healing and creativity through art and fabrication programs.

“Everyone at Walter Productions is excited to bring the Desert Hearts Festival to Arizona. We have collaborated with Desert Hearts for more than 10 years and together we’ve grown an amazing extended family. Walter has been part of the festival scene for many years and we can safely say there is no better venue than Playa Ponderosa.” – Kirk Strawn of Walter Productions

Desert Hearts Festival 2024 fittingly takes over July 4th weekend to redefine what it means to be truly free under the azure skies and vibrant sunrises and sunsets over the scenic wilderness of Coconino National Forest.
