Man, the goods just keep coming with Desert Daze. Today Noisey is pleased to announce the third phase of the SoCal psyche rock extravaganza’s lineup, featuring an additional headliner, new side programming, and a lot more.

First, grab your earplugs, because My Bloody Valentine is coming through to headline and quite literally shake things up. They’ll be joined by new sets from greats Shellac, Julia Holter with a string section and orchestra, Gum (solo project of Tame Impala’s Jay Watson), Ian Svenonius’ Escape-ism, and Yonatan Gat and the Eastern Medicine Singers.

The fest will also include a speaking event with Steve Albini, lectures on high magick, and more mind-bending programming to be announced.

Thursday night arrival has also been added for campers that want to set up before the main program begins; details about Early Arrival Passes will be available on the festival website.
