DESOLATION CENTER is the story of a series of ground-breaking early 80s music concerts in the desert outside Los Angeles that were the inspiration for modern day behemoths Coachella, Burning Man and Lollapalooza. The film weaves interviews and rare performance footage of Sonic Youth, Minutemen, Meat Puppets, Swans, Perry Farrell and more, documenting a time when pushing the boundaries of music, art, and performance felt almost like an unspoken obligation.
