Desert Hearts Festival is just days away and we couldn’t be more excited than ever. The completely sold out 80-hour event of non-stop music takes place this weekend with a powerhouse lineup. We see the Desert Hearts crew as family, as they treat us part of as their own family. At Desert Hearts Festival is nothing but love, acceptance, and dancing. This being the most ultimate lineup in Desert Hearts history the team at Electric Vibes made a list of the top 5 artists to see at the festival this weekend.

Joyce Muniz


Friend and colleague to the Desert Hearts crew, the Brazilian DJ and producer released her Me & Da Beat EP on the label. In an recent interview with Joyce, she said “I did the remix for Desert Hearts a few years ago, I know SABO for ages the guys asked about the remix for a while, I have different styles and sounds, I waited for the right moment, I moved to Berlin 2 years ago, I rented a studio and Mikey Lion fell in love with the track, I love the vibes, its a mix between.” Her style of sound is a rich tribal house vibe with groovy techno beats and basslines. She is beyond excited to perform this year, “it has a really cool vibe in the middle of nowhere with no phone signal. I am looking forward to playing a bit more of a groovy trippy set there.” Joyce will be performing on Saturday at 4 PM.



UK house artist, and label boss of Jacky & Friends, this DJ, and producer is going places and pushing boundaries within the house and techno scene.
