As festival season dawns upon us, one bi-annual event is sure to cause excitement unlike any other.
On April 1-4, at Los Coyotes reservation – a small California oasis untouched by mainstream influence – will mark the spring version event of Desert Hearts; a festival experience that dictates itself upon cultural movement and progression.
Front man and progressively bold producer Mikey Lion created a diversely enticing playlist to rile up future attendees for the upcoming event saying,
Hey what’s up this is Mikey Lion from the Desert Hearts Crew. We’ve put together one of our all-time favorite lineups for our Desert Hearts Spring Festival happening on April 1st to 4th in Southern California. We wanted to do something special for you guys this time around in order to introduce some of the names you may not be familiar with. So throughout this mix I’ll be introing each track with a little history of each artist and why we’ve chosen them to play Desert Hearts. If the commentary isn’t your cup of tea, we’ve also included the full mix without the talking for you to enjoy above.
