Mojave Beach - Postponed - October 22.jpg

Important Announcement 

Due to circumstances well beyond our control, The Everywhen 2022 event in the Mojave is postponing. When we set intentions to create an art-focused event, to bring artists into the spotlight and to build community and relationships around those ideas, we knew there would be hard days ahead. This day has been the hardest yet. Please know, we are absolutely in this for the long haul to make our dream of a sustainable system of support for art and artists come true. We have a value system in place to have certain minimums reached for a successful event: to deliver what is promised, fund artists, rich homestead experiences and an environment where tall tales and good jovial fun thrives. Have you seen the prices of gas, well, just about everything lately? We're all feeling the crunch.

This project is our passion, our mission and our connection to so many things we care deeply about. Including you! We are so sorry. And, we will be back in 2023!

We'll be sending an email out with a form to explain and request your ticket options, moving forward. For right now, please know that our intentions and drive to create something amazing have not changed.

THE TERRAIN & LOCAL AREA

The terrain at Mojave Beach is a yellow-red sandy mix of decomposed granite. Desert sagebrush dots the landscape, and two rocky cinder cones sit prominently at the city center. As traversing through the sand can cause some vehicles to become stuck, we recommend that vehicles remain on the gravel roads.

California City is twenty minutes from the event site, allowing for ease of grocery resupply, refueling, or having a sit-down restaurant meal. 

WEATHER

The Mojave climate is one of extremes with common temperature shifts of 40+ degrees paired with strong and sometimes ceaseless winds. The winds carry dust, sand, and plant matter. Be prepared with goggles and a dust mask!

During early October, the days are typically bright, sunny and warm. The evenings will be chilly. Layering clothes is advised. The Santa Ana winds may blow through the landscape as the seasons shift from Summer into Fall. During these wind events, we advise monitoring your ground anchors and hunkering down until the winds cease.

RECOMMENDED GEAR

SHELTER

As an exposed desert environment without natural shelter, we recommend an RV, trailer, or a tent. Whenever possible, we suggest keeping vehicles nearby or upwind of structures to provide additional wind protection. Augers are the recommended ground anchors for keeping things secure in the sand.

WARMTH

The desert gets COLD at night. A propane fire pit with grill doubles as a cooking fire and a way to keep warm. If having fire, keep a fire extinguisher and/or a bucket of sand nearby. Gloves, hats, jackets, boots, and thermals are recommended for nightwear. Before going to bed, tossing a few air-activated heat packs into your sleeping bag will help keep you warm through the night.

 

PROTECTION

Goggles, face/dust mask, boots and long socks are suggested for keeping debris and sand away from sensitive areas. For your vehicle, a car cover will reduce risk from sand damage. Ear plugs help with reducing noise when sleeping. When out and about at night, a headlamp or glowing lights will help you keep footing in the sand.

EQUIPMENT

Compressed air will help shift and blow sand from seized mechanical equipment, such rotating locks or zippers. Jumper cables for the vehicle, and consider using solar panels for recharging batteries and powering camps.

MOJAVE BEACH CHECKLIST

So you’re going to the Mojave, but this ain’t no beach; be prepared or she’ll kick your ass. With this quick checklist you’ll have everything you need (somethings you can share with friends) and you won’t have to go begging the neighbors like a newbie - even if you are one.

ESSENTIALS:

  • Ticket

lillith’s SAFETY TIPS:

Whenever you go out on your bike, take goggles, mask, water and food. I’ve been stuck out in a sand storm and was glad I had the essentials. I’ve hung out in other camps and once in a porto!

Leave contact

info with someone at home; for their

benefit. If there is a family emergency they can get hold of you through the local sheriff’s dept.

HAVE FUN, FUN, FUN….THAT’S WHAT THIS IS ALL

ABOUT ANYWAY!!!!!

*Some of these things you can coordinate if you are camping with a group, but be prepared like a good scout.

**Find these on amazon and possibly hardware stores
