Why you should attend:

Huge Acts Under An Epic Desert Sky

Big Sean, Steve Aoki, Vince Staples, and other top recording artists all converge in Tucson to perform at the Dusk Music Festival. These acts will be enhanced by an epic desert background. Honestly, Coachella has nothing on our sunsets. October in Tucson is perfect weather wise and you’ll be able to enjoy the good tunes and the vibes all weekend long.

For Tucson, by Tucson. Dusk is hyper-local.

Dusk Music Festival was started by Tucsonan’s who wanted to bring a festival like no other to our city. Local restaurants, vendors and sponsors all pitch in to create a perfect festival experience for you and your crew.

Desert Vibes and Art.

In addition to bringing you epic tunes, we work with local artists to create art installations in the park. They are colorful, often desert themed, interactive, and totally insta-worthy.

The perfect ‘grams. You’re gonna have social content for days.

Be honest, you are secretly hoping for a selfie with Big Sean. If you aren’t able to score that coveted photo, you’ll definitely have plenty of other pics to share on social. Go ahead, capture the moment and make your friends jealous.


The energy, the people, the full body reset.

Festivals are a great place to people watch, make new friends, and elevate your mood. They’re the perfect environment to let loose and let the music take control.
