Following its lengthy, public legal battle with John Summit, grassroots underground music festival Off The Grid Campout has just unveiled the full lineup for its eighth edition from Friday, October 10 – Monday, October 14 at Sirius Ranch in Apple Valley, California.

With over 150 acts on its lineup, The High Desert camping festival – which is known for curating a dynamic roster of forward-thinking, left-of-center selectors – will enter this fall with full control over its own destiny, further cementing itself as a nonstop musical marathon steeped in a community-oriented, intimate atmosphere.

Boasting 76+ hours of uninterrupted sounds, Off The Grid Campout 2024 will feature an eclectic array of house and techno heavyweights, as well as artists from the live, bass, and DNB spaces. Headliners include electronic music icon and event impresario Gary Richards (aka Destructo) doing a special sunrise sermon set, genre-blending OWSLA-darling Mija, live-electronic duo PillowTalk, Chicago-house legend Gettoblaster, Pete Tong-certified house DJ and Doorly, DJ polymath and yoga teacher Gina Turner, and British deep house producer/DJ Jimpster

The festival will additionally welcome performances from Wolfy Lights w/ KJ Sawka, DJ Sneak, Kevin Knapp, Thee-O, Donald Glaude (DNB Set), Rabbit In The Moon, Dela Moon, Anton Tumas, Beacon Bloom, DJ Dan, DJ Reza, Friendly Fire, Left/Right, Max & Dana, Nightstalker (Techno Set), S-Doobie w/ MC Dino, SOOHAN, Tone Of Arc (Live).

The Off The Grid Campout lineup includes a huge assortment of other talented DJs who will all contribute to the festival’s continuous party atmosphere.

This year’s Off The Grid Campout will also feature a plethora of hosted stages and crew takeovers, solidifying the event as an inclusive congregation space for all underground music lovers.

Outside of the expertly-curated lineup, Off The Grid Campout will present a bevy of experiential offerings, including art cars, interactive installations, comedy sets, fire performances, a healing sanctuary, food and beverage vendors, a marketplace, themed camps, workshops, yoga, a Thursday pre-party, and more.

Off The Grid Campout 2024 will also host a pre-festival DJ competition, where the winner will get the opportunity to play this year’s festival and the just-announced, inaugural Off The Grid Campout event in Austin; headline the long-running SoCal house & techno party series Space Taco; be flown out to play the 2025 edition of Gary Richards’ premier nautical music event FriendShip; and sign with a management company. All you have to do to enter is upload a 60-minute mix titled “Road To OTG” onto SoundCloud or Mixcloud, and share it on your socials with a link to an originally produced track. The deadline for the competition is August 1, 2024.

Another unique inclusion at this year’s Off The Grid Campout will be the ‘young DJ’ stage. On Sunday, October 13, the festival will dedicate one of its stages to showcase starry-eyed, aspiring DJs – a unique wrinkle in the event’s programming that positions Off The Grid Campout as an authentic nurturer of dance music’s future generations.

What makes this upcoming edition of Off The Grid Campout particularly special is that it is the first installment following the festival’s lengthy legal spout with tech-house giant John Summit – a public battle that resulted in a massive victory for Off The Grid Campout and the event’s ability to retain its namesake.

Event producer/DJ Mikey Made created Off The Grid Campout in 2015, which began as a tiny desert party with less than 50 people. Following the event’s multi-year hiatus and eventual return in 2019, Off The Grid Campout has since evolved into a 1200-person, four-day festival, bumping 24/7 music across multiple stages and genres.

With its focus on grassroots community building and platforming artists on-the-rise, Off The Grid Campout has cultivated an inclusive, positive atmosphere that truly feels like a family-reunion for its repeat-attendees and performers.

When John Summit launched his Off The Grid label and event series in 2022, the sheer marketing power and name recognition of the global superstar threatened to completely overshadow and dilute everything Off The Grid Campout had built. In a dance music David vs. Goliath story, Mikey Made refused to back down and lose his brand: he entered a legal back-and-forth that saw the small, homegrown Mojave Desert music festival go up against one of the biggest names in electronic music and his team of bullies. Through his grit, perseverance, and conviction for the culture he had built, MIkey Made came away triumphant with full rights to the Off The Grid brand name – a rare example of a DIY music community member winning against the nefarious, incessant corporate music machine. 

The victory speaks to the strength of not only Mikey Made, but of the entire Off The Grid Campout community who stood by his side. It was a win for them all – and it’ll be celebrated in earnest this fall at the upcoming edition of the festival.

The special installation of Off The Grid Campout 2024 will be preceded by the inaugural Off The Grid Campout Austin, which will take place on the water at River Forest Haven from Friday, September 27 – Sunday, September 29, 2024. More details to come soon.
