Deserted at The Palms - 5.21.16

words + photos by Joe Cortez

A couple hours due east of Los Angeles in a sleepy desert oasis called Wonder Valley lies The Palms Restaurant and Saloon, an otherwise quiet rest stop for tourists, bikers and passers by that's been home to the cure for the common desert music fest for the past two years, Deserted at The Palms.

This year's lineup was stacked with killer sets from local faves Kim and the Created, Sex Stains, The Dead Ships, Pearl Charles, Haunted Summer, Death Valley Girls, The Garden, Mild High Club, Fartbarf and festival organizer Daiana Feuer's own Bloody Death Skull. Check out my photos from Saturday's show below and to stay up to date on next year's event, be sure to follow desertedparty on tumblr.
