Bhatki Fest Returns to New Location in Twentynine Palms

Forty years after receiving his life’s mission from Swami Satchitananda at Woodstock, Sridhar founded Bhakti Fest, which has since become Southern California’s largest and most beloved yoga and spiritual music festival. Now after a decade in Joshua Tree, the festival is moving to a new home just up the road in Twentynine Palms, California.

         Bhakti Fest, being held September 25 to 30 at Roadrunner Dunes, will feature amazing conscious music, yoga, spiritual and wellness workshops, and more. This transformative event, which attracts spiritual seekers far and wide, has many new opportunities including a lake for swimming, aquatic and paddleboard yoga, and vast vibrant space for art installations.

         Headliners for the event include Deepak Chopra, Krishna Das, Mike Love, Dharma Mittra, Shiva Rea, Radhanath Swami, Jai Uttal, MC Yogi, Fannah Fi Allah, Saul David Raye, Donna De Lory, Sianna Sherman, Mas Vidal, Girish, Govind Das & Radha, Kia Miller, Dawn Cartwright, Ram Das (via video), and more to be announced in the coming weeks.

         The new location also features three music stages, expanded yoga and workshop villages, a sound temple for sound baths, a healing sanctuary for bodywork, a mantra dome, Bhakti Kids Land with children’s programming, men’s and women’s sacred spaces, and a Kirtan school.

         Expanded housing options include camping, RV hookup sites, cabins, glamping yurts, cozy trailers, and hotels and rental homes nearby.
