If you're even slightly on social media then I'm sure your news feed is everything COACHELLA - esque. The acclaimed three-day music festival took place in Indio, California this past weekend. There is one more thing that happens near the festival that is equally amped up as the fest itself - Neon Carnival.

Coachella's lineup on Saturday consisted of: Future, Bon Iver, Two Door Cinema Club, Schoolboy Q, DJ Snake, and of course Lady Gaga to name a few. After Lady Gaga turned Coachella into her very own 'Gagachella,' a select few jetted off to one of the most sought-after parties of the weekend. For it's eighth consecutive year Neon Carnival took place in Thermal, California on Saturday night.

“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,” Brent Bolthouse previously stated.

The event did just that! With top-tier cocktails from Don Julio tequila, Bud Light, and endless games and rides it's no wonder why Neon serves as the perfect afterparty.There were games such as a fun 'Tinder Match,' that drew a crowd and of course the infamous famous wheel where guests can take in the view of the sights.

The biggest names in entertainment and lifestyle brand partnerships, including the return of iconic denim inventor the Levi’s® Brand, were back to headline the event.  Other sponsors included: Wynn Nightlife, Batiste Dry Shampoo bar and Hollywood heavy hitter DJ’s including Kayper, DJ Politik, Jesse Marco and DJ Ruckus kept partygoers dancing with performances that lasted into the early morning hours. From music moguls like Drake, French Montana, Diddy, Jhene Aiko, Tove Lo, Tinashe, Cassie, Akon, Danny Masterson, Leona Lewis, Ty Dolla $ign, Future, to actors like Michael Pena, Aaron Paul, Scott Eastwood, and more were in attendance. 

Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio were both in attendance and keeping a low profile at the event as both were wearing dark shades. Selena Gomez arrived in good spirits after spending the day with her beau, The Weeknd. It was all fun and games for Zedd and friends arriving early to be first on the Lokai Ferris Wheel and then heading straight for the Tinder bumper cars before finally hitting the dance floor at The Levi’s Brand Presents Neon Carnival with Tequila Don Julio. Aaron Paul was in attendance, per usual, as this is one of his favorite events. He and his wife, Lauren were in attendance at one of his favorite events. The couple originally met a few years ago at Coachella. Although this party isn't affiliated with the festival itself, celebrating at Neon Carnival is only seems right - it's like a honeymoon and a reminder of what brought them together initially - music.
