Where to View the JTMF in Joshua Tree

The JTMF takes place at the Joshua Tree Lake Campground in Joshua Tree, California. Enjoy the festival by day then take in all the Southern Californian sky has to offer at night inside the astonishing National Park. The magical sweeping views will leave you speechless after a day filled with positive vibes and energy.

The venue is perfect for camping or RV parking for an all out music festival experience. Two main stages and a world market are set up within the campground. Additionally, the venue is accompanied by a one acre oval lake area. Surrounding the water are the festival’s very own art installations and family-friendly workshops.

How to Get Around Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree is a relatively remote area in Southern California considering its desert location. Your best bet for travel would be to rent a car or RV during the four day festival at a discounted rate. Public transportation is not available to the actual campsite unless you wanted to pay an arm and leg for a taxi ride out to the desert.

However, Joshua Tree is located 50 minutes from Palm Springs, 2.5 hours from Los Angeles, 3 hours from San Diego and 3.5 hours from Las Vegas. Most event goers are from California but those visiting from elsewhere usually take a week long trip to check out the rest of what So Cal has to offer.
