The Neon Carnival Presented by Levi’s and Tequila Don Julio is the Kanye West of Parties

Neon Carnival returned for the ninth consecutive year to Thermal, California on Saturday, April 14. The invite-only outdoors dance fête, widely recognized as one of the most coveted after-parties of the year created by famed LA nightlife Maven, Brent Bolthouse returned once again to light up the desert sky. Brent Bolthouse created this magical night from a launch party that he threw at Magic Mountain 12 years ago. The event itself takes place in the middle of the desert filled with bumper cars, a giant Ferris wheels, unlimited amounts of Don Julio, sightings of Leonardo Dicaprio, and non-stop dancing. The list itself is as presumptuous as Kanye West’s outbursts, but you are set once you pick up the golden wristband. What makes this party so special is that there are so many activities to go around which creates some lifelong friendships. “It’s about a group of people coming together to have some fun, which you only get to do one time of the year and then your done,” said Brent Bolthouse. Timbaland surprised guests and took over the DJ booth this year to play some of the best tunes at HITS Desert Horse Park. No strangers to the nightlife scene, Hollywood heavy hitter DJs, and Don Julio 1942 Brand Ambassadors Kayper, DJ Politik, Jesse Marco and DJ Ruckus kept partygoers dancing with performances that lasted into the early morning hours.
