Neon Carnival, the famed late-night outdoor dance party created by nightlife impresario Brent Bolthouse, is returning to the Coachella Valley on Saturday, April 11 for the sixth consecutive year, with amusement park rides, games, music and more. This year’s event will be presented by Paper magazine along with partners PacSun, “Dope” the movie, and Tequila Don Julio. DJs Ruckus, Politik, Jesse Marco and Kayper will perform late into the night in the California desert.
In addition to the traditional Neon Carnival games and activities featured each year, PacSun has created a custom game specifically for the event and will be offering guests the chance to win prizes from some of PacSun’s top brands. Tequila Don Julio will be serving up specialty cocktails from the Airstream Speakeasy, which is a 1967 vintage Airstream trailer that has been retrofitted into a bespoke, mobile bar, with top mixologists traveling to the desert to craft the drinks.
Neon Carnival was created by Bolthouse Productions and has now become an annual event at the Landmark Aviation private airport in the city of Thermal, California (not far from the Indio polo fields) during music’s biggest festival weekend. With the who’s who of Hollywood and the music industry clamoring to attend, this hot ticket is tough to come by if you don’t have an inside connection.
