DD12 POSTER

 

In 2012, Moon Block Party created Desert Daze and unintentionally hosted one of the world’s longest consecutive day music festivals. Over 120 acts played on 2 stages and physically rocked a roadhouse in the desert for eleven straight days and nights. Moon Block co-presented each day with help from friends, co-presenters, contributors, artists, & sponsors:
Sailor Jerry, Amoeba Records, Burger Records, Blundertown, LA Record, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Origami Vinyl, Tom Tom Magazine, ONE Coconut Water, FunkySole, KSPC, KXLU, KUCR, KUCI, KPFK, GT’s, Keep-A-Breast / Non Toxic Revolution, Thief Presents,  FMLY, What Cheer?, Buddyhead, Miracle Records, Operation Mindblow, Mystic Braves (Blackfeet Braves), and all of those who lived in the desert with us for what became thirteen straight days setting up and breaking down the festival and everything in between.
