Coachella 2022 preview: Post-Covid party in the desert

Levi’s and Tequila Don Julio present the glorious return of the neon carnival in its 11th year as the festival’s most coveted after-party and for the first time, Neon Carnival’s longtime socialite and VIP, Paris Hilton will host the desert festivities.

Since the beginning of Neon Carnival’s after-party reign, Neon has proven and continues to prove to be the pinnacle of after-hours desert greatness. With so many celebrity guests like Leonardo DiCaprio, Drake, Rihanna, Diddy, Jamie Foxx, Selena Gomez, Post Malone, Aaron Paul, Odell Beckham Jr., Tyga, Iggy Azalea and more, it’s no surprise that ‘they continue to be the dominant after hour place to be.

This year, to hydrate the revelers, IV fluid will make sure everyone’s hydration levels are at optimal levels as they dance to ridiculously banging DJ-prepared tracks Ruckus, Kayper, Mel Debarge and other special guests. Smirnoff Vodka will also distribute their new Neon lemonades to keep spirits alive and dancing throughout the night.

Many thanks and applause are due to event visionary Brent Bolthouse as he continues to deliver the greatest desert experience in the history of the Coachella Valley.

So now is the time to call in those favors, meet your friends in high places, and get invited to the biggest and most coveted Coachella weekend afterparty of the year.
