Desert Daze announced it is cancelling its 2023 festival, scheduled for October 13-15, but promised a 2024 return to Lake Perris in Southern California’s Moreno Valley.
“After careful thought and consideration, Desert Daze organizers have decided to take a year off from the event at Lake Perris and return in 2024, using the extra time to ensure an experience that surpasses expectations for many years to come,” organizers said in a statement.
Early bird tickets had already gone on sale (and sold out). Those tickets can be refunded or rolled over for the 2024 edition, scheduled for October 10-13.
In lieu of the festival bash, organizers announced “Daze In The City,” a series of club and theater dates around Southern California for Daze favorites. See the full listing below.
