Lakeside Launch Party with Desert Hearts Returns in 2020!

December 5th, 2019

That’s right party people, our friends at Desert Hearts are officially returning in 2020, helping us kick off Memorial Day weekend with a 7-hour wet and wild welcoming party. Grab your floaties and wrangle your festival fam because this is one lakeside dance-a-thon you do not want to miss.

We thought 2018’s takeover couldn’t get any better, but LIB’s new home is taking this party to the next level. Unlike the rocky beaches of Bradley, Buena Vista Lake offers flat grassy terrain, sandy coastlines, and swimmable, temperate lake to float in while you settle in for the best weekend of the year.

The Desert Heart’s crew will be kicking things off bright and early Thursday, beginning at 11am and going till sunset.  Don’t be tardy to the party! 5-Day Passes allow you to arrive a day early on Wednesday, bypassing the Thursday rush and long wait times.

“LIB was really one of the first parties that started it all for me. I had gone to Coachella for 6 years before I finally made the trek to LIB in 2011. I remember the first night I spent at The Woogie Stage I was freaking out and screaming “This is the best party of all time! What have I been doing with my life all these years!?” A woman dressed in a vaudeville outfit tapped me on the shoulder and said, “If you like this you gotta try Burning Man”…and the rest is history. LIB introduced me to the entire counter-culture of homegrown grassroots festivals. Without me going to LIB in 2011, I don’t think we would have started Desert Hearts in 2012. I love LIB to the core and can’t wait to kick the festival off DH style in 2020!” ~ Mikey Lion, Desert Hearts
