Framework, one of the world’s leading independent purveyors of underground music experiences, has just concluded the third edition of its Framework in the Desert event series.
Having taken place at the Atlantic Aviation airport hangar in Thermal, CA from Friday, April 12 - Sunday, April 14, Framework in the Desert welcomed more than 10,000 guests across three nights of pulsating house and techno - shattering the event series’ previous attendance records and further solidifying itself as the premier afterparty option for Coachella festival-goers.
This year’s Framework in the Desert hosted a bevy of star-studded performers, surprise b2bs, and special celebrity guests. Highlights include Belgian trailblazing DJ/producer Charlotte de Witte kicking off the weekend with a ripping headlining performance, bringing her signature hard-hitting techno sound to the uniquely cavernous venue. On Saturday, Australian superstar Dom Dolla doled out a roaring, 90-minute set to a bustling crowd of revelers. And on Sunday, global party-starter John Summit hopped straight from his stage-closing Coachella performance to Framework in the Desert, serving up a high-octane selection before welcoming UK tech-house producer Cloonee to the stage for an impromptu b2b.

During his solo-performance on Sunday, Cloonee brought out fellow Birmingnham-native and ‘House & Bass’ pioneer Chris Lorenzo for a surprise b2b set. He also played a special unreleased ID during his b2b section with John Summit.
Framework in the Desert hosted a multitude of celebrity guests throughout the weekend, including Swedish progressive house legend Alesso, Tale of Us-member Anyma, and boundary-pushing dance pop artist Grimes. Additionally, Wynn Nightlife was on the scene to deliver revelers an elevated VIP experience which included exclusive seating, bottle service, coveted artist views, and the acclaimed guest service that the brand is recognized for. During the three-day event, Mexican singer sensation Peso Pluma and superstar influencer Alix Earle were seen partying from inside the exclusive Wynn Nightlife VIP area. PATRON EL ALTO was the presenting spirits partner of the Wynn Nightlife experience and Framework in the Desert, providing VIP bottle service and specialty cocktails. The naturally sweet and incredibly smooth prestige tequila took the events to new heights. The pinnacle of celebration, PATRON EL ALTO was the perfect toast to the ultimate festival weekend in the desert.
This year also marked the Framework in the Desert debut of Titanic's End - a gargantuan, glacier-shaped art car that served as the event’s immersive stage. Since its inception at Burning Man as a mesmeric Mutant Vehicle, Titanic’s End transformed Atlantic Aviation from an unadorned airport hangar into a kaleidoscopic phantasmagoria of audiovisual bliss - thus reaffirming Framework’s reputation for producing imaginative events in unconventional spaces.
Keegan Arthur Olton from Titanic's End shared, "We loved working with the Framework team to create a peak experience for the Coachella audience. The combination of lighting, projection mapping, lasers and audio was exquisite."

In addition to Framework in the Desert, Framework had its hands in various other events over the weekend, stretching its influence across the Coachella Valley and fortifying its status as the go-to brand for curating the most in-demand underground acts. At Coachella itself, Framework programmed the lineup at The Yuma Tent, which reached its maximum capacity only a few hours into its opening every day. The Yuma Tent lineup at Coachella weekend 1 featured names such as Adriatique, Carlita, Kolsch b2b Kevin de Vries, and Flight Facilities, as well as artists who also played Framework in the Desert such as Reinier Zonneveld, Patrick Mason, Gorgon City, Rebuke, and Will Clarke. 
Framework was also responsible for the private estate Zenyara party on Sunday presented by PATRON EL ALTO, which ushered in a surprise appearance from superstar tight end Travis Kelce while throngs of fans waited in line for hours in the hopes of getting in. That night’s Zenyara lineup also featured an elite assortment of underground music talent, such as a surprise b2b set with Adam Ten x Mita Gami, Bonobo, and DJ Tennis.
While Framework was busy throwing parties across the desert, the company also got a jumpstart on its 7 Days of Framework at Sound event series - an annual weeklong marathon in between the Coachella weekends at Los Angeles’ renowned Sound Nightclub. On Friday, April 12, 7 Days of Framework at Sound hosted Adam Ten x Mita Gami for a sold out show before also selling out Miss Monique on Saturday, April 13. 
7 Days of Framework at Sound continued last night, Tuesday, April 16 with Maz b2b Ben Sterling, before tonight's nearly-sold out Folamour set on Wednesday, April 17 and a sold-out show with Purple Disco Machine on Thursday, April 18. And following Reinier Zonneveld’s headlining performance at Framework in the Desert, the contemporary techno maven will make his Sound debut this Friday, April 19 before Innelllea closes out the week with a DJ set on Saturday, April 20.
Looking ahead at the Framework calendar, the brand will continue its 2024 reign of showcasing top-drawer talent across Southern California. On Saturday, May 4, Framework presents Keinemusik will mark the German record label/collective’s largest Los Angeles show to date. The sold-out event will see the collective bring their signature ‘Peace Kloud’ inflatable to the City of Angels for the very first time.
Then on Saturday, June 1, Framework presents Solomun will mark the first-ever public show at Mandalay Generating Station, an abandoned power plant in Oxnard, CA. The event will represent the culmination of a fruitful, 10+ year creative partnership between the brand and the three-time DJ Awards winner. 
Founded in 2013, Framework (which owns Sound Nightclub) has hosted upwards of 200 artists and 1.1 million guests across 35 venues internationally, becoming the principal consultant, talent buyer, and event producer for businesses and brands looking to present novel nightlife experiences to their markets.
