And when we all get together, there’s that joyful euphoria felt during a shared communal experience – collective effervescence…that incommunicable thrill of a group deliberately united in exaltation – intense feelings of well-being and happiness from being a part of something that is bigger than us. And we hold on to those feelings of connectedness long after the actual event. That’s the real juicy stuff.
Hundreds of talented, loving, and caring people help create the music festivals – charismatic improvisers, wild hearts, positive deviants, hippy gypsies, seekers of exhilarating beauty, the lustfully compassionate, and the rebelliously kind. It’s an oasis of smiling faces conspiring to commit intelligent fun. It’s a family affair. It’s a love affair.
The festival is a place where “you’re a shining star, no matter who you are.” And “we all shine on, like the moon and the stars and the sun.” “So shine on you crazy diamonds.”
Here’s to hoping we see you at the 18th annual fall Joshua Tree Music Festival, October 5-8, 2023.
