Neon Carnival, the most sought after late night event, returned for its seventh consecutive year to Indio, California on April 16. The famed late-night outdoor dance party created by Brent Bolthouse featured a new set up, new amusement park rides, games and more. Attracting the Hollywood elite, Leonardo DiCaprio, Rihanna, Jared Leo, Alexander Skarsgaard, Nina Dobrev, Aaron Paul, Josh Hutcherson, Karlie Kloss came out to celebrate music’s most celebrated festival. G-Eazy was one of the first to arrive with an entourage of guests and was escorted directly to his table and kept a low profile throughout the night. The “Me, Myself, and I” singer was paired with a close friend on the Tinder’s “Matchmaker” ride before headed to his VIP table. Aaron Paul, his wife, Lauren, were among the first to arrive to The Levi’s® Brand and RE/DONE | Levi’s® Present Neon Carnival with Tequila Don Julio party where they enjoyed 1942 bottle service. The couple spent time with friend Kellan Lutz before trying his luck at one of the many carnival games.
Leonardo DiCaprio donning his usual baseball hat and shades arrived around 1:00 AM under the radar through the back entrance and settled into a large booth where he let loose and was having a great time with friends. The Oscar Winner seemed to be in great spirits sipping Tequila Don Julio cocktails and dancing to the sounds of DJ Rukus. Also sneaking in through the back entrance, Rihanna arrived after Leo and was seated next to his booth. She rocked bright yellow-rimmed sunglasses, keeping them on the entire night. While the two were chatting, DJ Politik played Rihanna’s huge hit “Work” and the entire place went wild. Jermain Dupri, donning an all red jumpsuit, held court at another table next to Leo’s. The music mogul seemed to be very impressed with the DJs and was watching the stage vibing to the infectious beats. At another table, Nina Dobrev, Derek Hough and Josh Hutcherson sat together and were all spotted dancing to beats by DJ Equal. Scott Eastwood was seated at a table near Jared Leto who seemed to be keeping a low profile sitting with his brother Shannon and a few friends. Courtney Love attended the event and sat next to Michael Pena and Danny Masterson’s table. Fresh off of his Coachella performance where Kesha was a surprise guest, ZEDD headed straight to Neon Carnival and enjoyed watching the other DJs.
This year’s event was presented by renowned denim brand Levi’s® in partnership with RE/DONE | Levi’s® who provided guests with a personalized tailoring experience inside the Levi’s® mobile tailor shop. Tequila Don Julio provided the specialty drink experience and 1942 bottle service for VIP tables. Redbull, Perrier and Anheuser-Busch also added to the drink offerings.
