Joshua Tree is a desert like no other. As soon as you enter it’s city limits one can almost feel the low hum of energised and inspired contemporary artists and the annual Joshua Tree Roots Festival captures this unsung spirit that is gaining fast traction with festival go’ers. It’s the very spirit that pioneered Coachella, Burning man. What we’re witnessing here is the beginning of something significant, and we went out to capture it.

From the official website
The festivals are produced by a family of friends and funsters convinced that music is the soul of life, and that art enriches and saves lives. That the experience is enhanced when embraced in the great outdoors amongst fellow music lovers. Better still in an intimate setting, where the distinction between artist and audience is blurred, and a passionate performance can be truly relished in close proximity to the stage. Add FREE water to patrons, no service charges on reasonably priced tickets, and well…..let the games begin.
