IMPORTANT INFO :
Thank you so much for your support in this project. We have been working nonstop on this event and are extremely excited to deliver a unique experience to all of our beloved attendees.
It has come to our attention that our informational emails have been going into a lot of people's spam folders, and that not everyone has been able to receive our packing list, FAQ's and safety information. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY the following information so that you can feel confident about your trip to the Mojave this week.
Remember that this is a CAMPING trip in the desert. While we are expecting relatively cool temperatures for this time of the year, but please prepare for hot temperatures during the day, cold temperatures at night and potentially high winds. The Moonlight crew is camping at our location this entire week, so if the weather forecast changes drastically, we will notify you.
RECOMMENDED PACKING LIST:
A lot of water (at least 2 gallons per person per day)
At least 2-3 meals per day (there will be a couple food vendors on site but you should prepare food for yourself regardless
Tent with spikes and ropes to stake into the ground
Sleeping bag, blankets and a pillow
EZ up/foldable canopy (optional, usually 1 per car/group for shade)
Headlamp, flashlight + batteries
Several layers of warm clothing (long sleeves, hoodies, sweatpants, winter coat/jacket, extra socks)
More warm clothing

Lighter clothing for when it warms up the following morning
Toilet paper & toiletries
Spare tire & jack, jumper cables
Goggles and sunglasses
Trash bags for campsite cleanup

Any funky, cool artistic stuff you want as long as it is not dangerous to others!
Everything you bring in, you must bring out! This includes packing out all your garbage, including old/broken camping equipment. If your gear breaks in the desert, that doesn't mean you can leave it! Please treat the property as if it was your own.
The Moonlight Mirage campsite is located in Helendale, CA, approximately two-and-a-half hours out of Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego. Please remember, the precise directions to our location will be sent out 48 hours before the start of the event! Do not worry, you will receive clear directions on how to get there with maps included. This is a renegade-style event, and we do not want the location to be known to the general public.
Music starts at 5pm on Friday. Gates open at 4pm. The event will end at sunrise on Sunday April 24th. Everyone has to begin packing out by the time that the music stops.
We will have porto-potties, water, and food vendors on-site. However, we strongly encourage that you bring your own extra supply of food and water to ensure that you make it through the weekend comfortably.
SECURITY, MEDICAL & HARM REDUCTION:
There will be trained medical staff and security on-site. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions about safety and harm reduction. If you need ADA accommodations, please reach out to us individually and we'll be happy to make them for you.
No fires without permission from a fire marshal. Flow artists– you can bring fire as long as you are trained, bring the proper safety equipment, and have an appointed fire marshal with you (someone that's trained prepared to help if something goes wrong). We reserve the right to tell anyone to put out fire-spinning props if we feel that it's unsafe at any point.
ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY:
We have a zero tolerance policy for violence, sexual harassment, any sort of discrimination towards one's race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

The Multigenre Monster
The San Diego Unified Bass District is a grassroots multi-genre musical and artistic movement focused on showcasing the many talents of emerging musicians from all of Southern California and beyond.
Our primary musical focus includes all aspects of Bass, House and Hip Hop with plenty of room for more.
We are unique in that we separate ourselves from the traditional norm of a “genre-locked” artist collective by giving artists from a multitude of mediums and musical backgrounds the opportunity to connect and collaborate with one another.
San Diego is a beautiful amalgamation of demographics from all walks of life and all artistic tastes in need of a way to connect and create. We are musicians and artists alike whom, due to the many genre restrictive collectives in San Diego, likely would not have crossed paths without the founding of SDUBD.
We firmly believe that our success lies in our determination to succeed by whatever means necessary and the creativity that has arisen from our diverse quilt of a team.
THE WEST COAST BASS MUSIC HEAVYWEIGHT
Wookpack is a bass music collective based in Santa Barbara, California with roots stretched out to the Bay Area, Colorado, San Diego and Los Angeles.
These boys know how to get down and dirty, always bringing forth a mind-bending mixture of experimental bass, hip hop, and dance music. There are several things that you can count on when this crew is behind the decks; Love, great music, and a great time.
Wookpack is all about finding connection through shared musical experiences. Never to be defined by a genre, they will always be themselves, and invite you to do the same and let loose on the dancefloor. Infamous for throwing down anywhere from the peaks of mountain tops to the clubs in Santa Barbara and San Francisco.
Wookpack finds purpose in enjoying the moment with each other whilst curating a deep, mystical, and experimental musical experience. They always love to make new friends and family, so don’t be afraid to say hello!
They are very excited, honored, and grateful to be collaborating with the San Diego Unified Bass District and Lonely Floater in this years' Moonlight Mirage 2022: "Escape the Underground" Micro-Festival.
Keep an eye out for this collective, as they'll perennially push the boundaries of sound and have as much fun possible while doing it!
