Stuart Swezey is the founder of the iconic concerts of the Desolation Center – sort of illegal events and concerts that took place in the Mojave Desert in California, organized by punk kids in Ronald Reagan’s America, where they would blow up huge rocks and watch concerts by bands such as Sonic Youth, Minutemen, Meat Puppets or Einsturzende Neubaten. This will be a night full of music that was heard in the desert in the early 80’s, which influenced all the great festivals known today.
