The best thing about Coachella each year can be the plethora of daytime and nighttime parties, many free with open bars! We present below a list of the best 2017 Coachella parties:

What: Neon Carnival
When: Saturday April 15th
Where: Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport, Thermal
Tickets: Gotta know someone!

Annually the most sought-after of all of the Coachella parties, the Neon Carnival returns for the eighth consecutive year to Thermal, California on April 15. The invite-only outdoors dance event is widely seen as one of the most coveted after parties of the year. The party was created by famed LA nightlife maven Brent Bolthouse, the creator of The Bungalow.

Expect to find this year 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. All guests will also receive a new, one-of-a-kind Lokai bracelet that must also 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 Brent Bolthouse.

Published reports also suggest the event is moving locations in 2018 (new site not given yet) and promoter Brent Bolthouse has hinted the event may expand to possibly both weekends of Coachella and Stagecoach as well!
