Stoned and Dusted is an annual festival held in a secret location in the Mojave Desert in Joshua Tree, California. Initially active as Desert Generator in 2016, this festival was curated to replicate the generator parties and give people who couldn't make it to those events in the 80s and 90s a chance to experience such a thing.[1]

This event is largely curated by members of the desert rock scene such as Mario Lalli (Yawning Man), Brant Bjork and Sean Wheeler.

In 2016, Brant Bjork and members of the Desert Rock scene would work with All Night All Night Promotions, who had previously curated The Bandit Town Allnight Campout in 2014 and the Wet Hot Summer Van Show in 2013.
