Day tickets go on sale when we announce the individual day line ups. This is generally in the last few months before the festival. Consider signing up to our newsletter so you know the second they’re on sale.

We receive requests from many bands wishing to play Desertfest on a daily basis via multiple channels. Due to lack of man-power and only a few slots available to bands, we are unable to listen to what we are sent.

WHat is your refund policy?

Desertfest has a strict no refund policy, unless something has happened in extreme circumstances.
