QUEMA DEL DIABLO 2017
Saturday, December 9th, 2017
1:00 PM
This December 9th, join us for the Burning of the Devil, QUEMA DEL DIABLO, our take on the Guatemalan tradition of burning effigies of the devil at yearend—clearing the bad from the previous year and rising anew from the ashes. DJ set by Dave Catching; Argentina rockers Lujuria; Jesika Rabbit's latest Joshua Tree People; The desert's own Mezcalito; Satan's favorite Lucifer Meltdown; Swords of Fatima; and the always fun Cuddle party--PLUS SPECIAL GUESTS TO BE ANNOUNCED! All this plus fire performers IgNight Flow; DJ sets by Kate McCabe and Kim Green; a marching band and tons of cool artists—Bad Otis Link; Matt Aston; Jason Hadley; Conchi Sanford; Tania Jazz Alverez; Tod Lychkoff; Emmeric Konrad; Marcel DeJure and more! Traditionally held in the city square, we will be hosting the event at the spiritual center of the desert, the Joshua Tree Retreat Center. There will be bands, art installations, food and vendors—culminating with a parade of devils before the big burn. Campsites will also be available so attendees can revel well into the night.
