Techno Tuesday: Meet the venerated crew behind Desert Hearts

Out on the West Coast, a crew of five friends are steadily changing the festival landscape. Desert Hearts, as the collective is known, have fostered one of the more dedicated communities in the house and techno space. Their eponymous, bi-annual event draws thousands of revelers out to the reclusive Los Coyotes Reservation in Southern California. Off the grid, without WIFI or cell phone service, they throw a 72-hour festival where the music doesn’t stop. Centered around one stage, attendees drift in and out of the dancefloor at their convenience, never overtly concerned with who is playing at the moment, always trusting the crew’s savvy lineup curation.
As the festival bubble continues to get more saturated, Desert Hearts have managed to not only stand out from the crowd, but to present an experience that is wholly unique and undeniably authentic.
