My Bloody Valentine Added to Desert Daze Lineup, Joins Tame Impala, Jarvis Cocker




By JOHN DALY

My Bloody Valentine has joined the Desert Daze 2018 lineup along with legendary rockers Shellac,  it was announced today.

MBV joins Tame Impala, Death Grips, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Jarvis Cocker and Warpaint which were previously announced.

The fest takes place Oct. 12-14 in Lake Perris.

Another addition to the mix, composer and multi-instrumentalist Julia Holter, will perform with an orchestra and string section. The inclusion of GUM, the solo project of Jay Watson of Tame Impala, represents the first time the trifecta of Tame Impala, Pond and Gum have ever shared a bill.

Rounding off the new additions are Escape-ism, the solo project of Ian Svenonius (Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up, Chain and the Gang), also returning to the role of reverend of the Desert Daze opening ceremonies and transcendent ritual music of Yonatan Gat & The Eastern Medicine Singers. Also added is a speaking engagement with Steve Albini.
