Last weekend the iconic Neon Carnival took place during weekend 1 of the Coachella Music Festival. The exclusive invite-only event made its triumphant return to the desert for its 11-year-anniversary. The late-night festivities took place back at its permanent home at the Desert International Horse Park, where guests enjoyed carnival-style games and exciting amusement park thrills.
In partnership with Tequila Don Julio, Levi’s, and Liquid I.V, year after year Neon Carnival continues to be the hottest party during Coachella attracting stars like Leonardo DiCaprio, Jared Leto, Timothée Chalamet, Megan Thee Stallion, and more.
DiCaprio, who hasn’t missed a Neon Carnival since its inception, was spotted rocking a Kansas City Chiefs hat and sipped on 1942 with friends in the VIP section. Megan Thee Stallion also caught everyone’s attention when she arrived in a full pink outfit following her performance at the festival earlier that night. Other celebs present included Riverdale stars Lilli Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Vanessa Morgan, Charles Melton, and KJ Apa who like all the other celebs present, hung out in the elevated VIP risers section surrounding the dance floor.
Neon Carnival regulars DJ Ruckus & Kayper provided the tunes and vibes all night long along with newcomer from NYC Mel DeBarge. The Ferris wheel and bumper cars were fan favorites and the many bars spread throughout kept party-goers quenched and in high spirits. After a full day of musical performances at the festival, sometimes you want to keep the party going under the desert sky. Good thing there was plenty of Hydration by Liquid I.V. to make sure everyone was properly hydrated and electrolytes replenished. Although if you ask anyone they’d agree that Neon Carnival is definitely worth the hangover.
Other notable attendees were Paris Hilton, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Chloe x Halle, Cierra Ramirez, Teyana Taylor, Iman Shumpert, Keith Powers, Madison Pettis, Rickey Thompson, Rachel Zoe, Darren Barnet, Alexis Ren, Shaun Ross, Nick Viall, Natalie Joy, Mary Fitzgerald, Romain Bonnet, Danielle Ruhl, Nick Thompson, Cody Ko, Amber Rose, Helen Owen, Zack Kalter, Tefi Pessoa, Anitta, Metro Boomin, and more.
