Neon Carnival, one of our favorite annual traditions during the Coachella Valley’s festival season, returns for the eighth consecutive year to Thermal, California, on Saturday, April 15, 2017. The invite-only outdoors dance fête, widely recognized as one of the most coveted after parties of the year, is the brainchild of famed LA nightlife maven Brent Bolthousethe creator of The Bungalow.


Expect new games, amusement park rides and continued involvement from the biggest names in entertainment and lifestyle brand partnerships, including the return of iconic denim inventor, the Levi’s® brand, back to headline the event. Tequila Don Julio, returning for the third year in a row, will be pouring specialty drinks from the Airstream Speakeasy and providing Don Julio 1942 bottle service for VIP tables, including a special debut of their new Magnum Don Julio 1942 bottle.


Entry into the festival after party is granted with more than just a Neon Carnival wristband; guests will also receive a new, one-of-a-kind Lokai bracelet that must be presented for admittance. Batiste Dry Shampoo will host on-site hair styling stations and offer samples to attendees seeking a quick hair refresh. Don’t ride alone! Tinder will pair you with a new match on their bumper car ride.


Stop by the Bud Light space to share a beer with friends and cool off before tackling the rest of the carnival. No strangers to the nightlife scene, Hollywood heavy hitter DJ’s including Kayper, DJ Politik, Jesse Marco and DJ Ruckus will keep partygoers dancing with performances that last into the early morning hours. 


“I am excited to once again join forces with Levi’s and Tequila Don Julio, two brands that consistently capture the electrifying spirit of Neon Carnival. Every year is another opportunity for us to top ourselves, and we look forward to making this year’s Neon Carnival the best ever,” said Bolthouse.
