The Season Reopens: Indian Wells Music FestivalMarch 15, 2018
If hosting festival behemoths Coachella and Stagecoach weren’t enough, our Palm Springs location is also home to the Indian Wells Music Festival. Yes, we’re a lucky lot! Music is always wafting through the warm California air in our ‘hood. Taking place in our backyard, this event kicks off the month of the larger festivals. Infuse your incoming spring with a blend of rock, blues, jazz and country at this popular outing.
This year’s festival promises the best experience yet. Spread over the weekend of April 6 and 7, soulful music lovers should draw a heart in their calendar for these dates.

A Sumptuous Location
Beautiful music needs a beautiful setting. Indian Wells might be small, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in natural splendour. It helps that we’re also crazy about tennis, which is why the Indian Wells Tennis Garden is the perfect venue for this symphony for the senses.
With a capacity of 2,000 people, The Indian Wells Tennis Garden will have a “Full Bloom” debut. The site of the BNP Paribas Open – the largest men’s and women’s combined tournament in the world – has been preened to perfection with recent additions of palm trees, floral installations, pavers, plants and other greenery. Draped by the atmosphere of springtime, this succession of insanely good concerts is not be missed.
Patrons will be treated to food, wine, art and more from a selection of vendors to complement the evening. This is a festival that oozes class.
Home Away from Home
We provide a pad that will sweep you off your feet, just like the festival. Miramonte Resort & Spa is equipped with great Californian cuisine, stunning suites and full moon yoga classes. At just a 6-minute drive from the festival site, if you want to be pampered by your shelter as well as the music, stay with us.
