Bhakti Fest is a premiere 6-day Yoga & Sacred Music Festival, offering music on two stages, a wide variety of yoga, breathwork, sound healing, and spiritual and wellness workshops in the magical high desert setting of the Joshua Tree Retreat Center, located in Joshua Tree, CA.

This year we are also thrilled that Deepak Chopra will be added to our amazing 10th Anniversary line up. Deepak will present and participate in a full day of special panels, workshops, and meditations.

Bhakti Fest is a family-friendly, drug & alcohol-free event and our programs are accessible to all levels. Your festival pass includes everything except our pre- and post- Fest Intensives. These intensives take place on Wednesday, September 12 and Monday, September 17 and require a separate ticket. A full festival pass is required to purchase intensives.

Children under age 13 are free. Our Bhakti Fest Kid Land is chalk full of fun family-friendly activities! Senior, local and veteran discounts are also available.
