DJ Pee .Wee to Headline 2024 Edition of Iconic SoCal Desert Party, Neon Carnival

Neon Carnival, the storied SoCal party series, is returning to light up the desert for its 13th year.

Created by LA nightlife vet Brent Bolthouse and producing partner Jeffrey Best, the iconic Neon Carnival is as much a mini-metropolis as it is a party. The invite-only event annually plants its flag as a high-profile hub for dance music and haute lifestyle over festival weekend. Attendees can expect another star-studded affair after last year's headline-stealing event, which saw the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Willow Smith, Shaun White, Idris Elba and more.

Neon Carnival 2024 will take place at the Desert International Horse Park in Thermal, California for one night only, Saturday, April 13th. It's a big moment for the series as it features one of its best lineups to-date, according to Bolthouse.

"It's hard to believe that it has been celebrating for 13 years," Bolthouse said in a press release shared with "This year's Neon Carnival is going to have one of the best lineups we have ever had. "For this year our goal was to further amplify our musical performances."

The lineup's undeniable highlight is Anderson .Paak, who will perform an all-vinyl set under his alias, DJ Pee .Wee, per a press release. The night will also feature supporting sets by DJ Hunny Bee and James Kennedy.

Elsewhere under the lights of Neon Carnival, attendees can experience funfair-style games, bumper cars and, of course, the event's famed Ferris wheel ride. The venue’s grassy knoll spans the length of three football fields, or roughly 360 yards.

This year's Neon Carnival is presented by Liquid I.V. in association with Patrón El Alto and The Levi's Brand. Other sponsors include Ghost Energy, Tangle Teezer, LaCroix, Coca-Cola, Nütrl Vodka Seltzers, French bee Airlines, ApeCoin, Heineken and PathWater.
