8th Annual Neon Carnival Recap

Posted on 24 April 2017 by levon

We’re back from Coachella Music and Arts Festival. During weekend one, dozens of exclusive, invite-only parties had their doors open (rather closed) for A-list celebrities, industry people, and devout partygoers such as yourself. Here’s where we caught it all:

Bolthouse Productions hosted the 8th annual Neon Carnival at the notorious airplane hangar in Thermal, CA not too far from the festival. Provided by Don Julio, attendees had a taste (or ten) of special cocktails created for the event, such as the “Ash & Ice”, consisting of Don Julio Blanco, fresh lemon juice, lavender, raw honey, and activated charcoal. Damn tasty. The bar had all sorts of wonderful cocktails curated by mixologists at Don Julio.

Bumper Cars was a challenge after a few drinks. One guest dropped their phone on the platform, allowing the rubber-bumpered vehicles to it run over. The moral of the story? Don’t Instagram and drive. As we were in the poor-turning car, we saw DJ and producer Zedd in the vehicle ahead of us. We made sure to give his car a little thump (no pun intended).

Other celebrities were walking around and enjoying the illuminated scenery such as Drake, Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul, a well-hidden Leonardo Di Caprio incognito, and more.

The dance floor was flood of lights and party people. DJ Ruckus, DJ Politik, Jessie Marco, and Kayper catered to the attendees with classic hip-hop/R&B tracks and thumping house music. VIP and bottle service guests were served Don Julio 1942. Not too shabby.

All in all, this is THE party.

We interviewed a few guests at Neon Carnival and asked about their experience:

Alex: “It’s my second year at Neon Carnival and it’s an absolute s***show. I’m a tequila guy and this is seriously the best of both worlds. It was totally worth bouncing from the festival and coming here as early as I could. Can’t wait for next year.”

Laura: “It’s my first year here, and everyone tells me that Drake is here. I haven’t seen this many celebrities in one place before. I would have never thought I’d be at a carnival in an airplane hangar filled with celebrities and alcohol. I’m totally gonna make this my desert priority when I’m here for Coachella!”
