Have you ever wanted to cruise above the skies of Palm Springs in an authentic World War II airplane?

Too exciting for you? How about a relaxing early morning hike along a palm tree-lined oasis and into a sacred vortex?

Not much of a hiker? Maybe a healing sound bath and yoga class on a rooftop with unobstructed mountain views will hit the spot before a day of partying.

Those amenities are all available for purchase as part of Desert Air's Daytime Affairs programming. The inaugural house and techno festival is expanding its offerings into more than just a two-day music event.


Curated by Goldenvoice, the masterminds behind Splash House and Coachella, Desert Air will occupy the grounds of the Palm Springs Air Museum for a two-day house and techno affair. The festival will take place December 10th and 11th, and will be headlined by The Martinez Brothers, Peggy Gou, Dixon, Channel Tres, and DJ Koze.

Set to entice music aficionados that crave a little more adventure in their itineraries, the activities are a partnership between Goldenvoice and local businesses offering their services at a discounted rate for festival attendees. All set to take place in the morning hours of Saturday, December 11th, the leisurely pastimes are a great way to experience Palm Springs prior to the second day of the festival.
