While Burning Man features sex clubs and robots, and Coachella features Top 40 artists, the Joshua Tree Music Festival focuses on those with a preference for smaller indie. The festival is also slanted to families with children they’d rather not expose to guys with cock rings tanning their—Burning Man.

 

While many go for the music, which plays round the clock, others come for the unique experience that the attendees provide. The young, the old, pop culture junkies, those who only engage in fringe cultures, and nature enthusiast bi-annually descend on the desert city for days and nights filled with revelry, openness, and experimentation.

Taking place near Indio, California, the location of Coachella, the four-day event features musical artists, vendors, and a unique combination of LA city culture and Joshua Tree’s bohemian indie one.

 

While many of the bands have a sizeable but non-celebrity like following, they are nonetheless astoundingly talented with musical prowess that often eclipses that of their more famous comrades. The festival features pop music, jazz, hard and soft rock, Latin, and electronica Artists.

This festival is not suited for the selfie-taking crowd who’d rather document a false reality than engage in the real one.

 

Wearing everything from LED light wings to chaps with bunny tails, these attendees light up the day and the night with their purest form of art—themselves.

 

Joshua Tree is a visceral social experience that words cannot easily describe and is best vicariously engaged with through the eyes. Here are the photos of the attendees from the 2016 May festival.
