Desert Daze 2017 Recap

In support of independent music, we headed out to Desert Daze this year with an amazing crew and two simple goals in mind: produce some epic memories and party with an eclectic group of friends in full festival mode. Each day was jam-packed with talented up-and-coming bands and some of the most legendary names in the music industry alike. There was no shortage of good music from bands like: Iggy Pop, La Femme, Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile, Twin Peaks, Ty Segall, Al'ah-Las, and many more. There's no doubt we had our hands full telling the RAEN story by day and partying new friends by night, but we function best with a lot on our plate and the event was a massive success. As you can imagine, our friends were thankful the RAEN team was there with shades in hand to help deter the Joshua Tree sunlight that followed the long nights full of good times had. Have a look at the pictures below for a more detailed peek into our weekend at Desert Daze.
