Neon Desert Set to Return in 2017; Early-Bird Tickets on Sale Now

Officials with the Neon Desert Music Festival unveiled initial details surrounding the 2017 event, which will again take place on Memorial Day weekend.

Early-bird GA weekend tickets cost $99, while early-bird two-day VIP tickets are available for $250. Both of these specially priced tickets are available for purchase now at www.neondesertmusicfestival.com. Interested patrons are encouraged to act fast as these tickets are in short supply and will increase in price as the event date approaches.

Neon Desert will be announcing the initial music lineup, along with additional Festival details in the upcoming months.

Now in its seventh year, Neon Desert has cumulatively hosted over 130,000 attendees, with over 32,000 music-fans partaking in last year’s two-day celebration. Since its inception in 2011, the event has offered attendees an eclectic mix of mainstream American performers alongside acclaimed international acts, with past performers including J. Cole, Kaskade, Passion Pit, Zoé, Ximena Sariñana, Mala Rodriguez, G-Eazy, Zedd, Wiz Khalifa, MGMT, Capital Cities, Carla Morrison, and Moby.

The 2016 festival proudly welcomed performances from a wide variety of acclaimed acts, including Deftones, Tiësto, Future, Daddy Yankee, Carnage, Ludacris, Tyler, The Creator; A$AP Ferg, Tory Lanez, Natalia Lafourcade, Duke Dumont, Wolfgang Gartner, MUTEMATH, STRFKR, Cults, AlunaGeorge, Mark Farina, and Niykee Heaton, along with more than 40 other talented performers.

In addition to the music performances throughout the weekend, fans at the 2016 Neon Desert Music Festival experienced an expanded footprint in historic downtown El Paso, which included a dedicated stage for local artists in the newly renovated San Jacinto Square. Other new additions to the festival included a skate ramp, pro wrestling, numerous live art installations, and more.

Neon Desert will continue to be produced in partnership with Texas-based ScoreMore Shows, and will feature a diverse mix of nationally acclaimed and up-and-coming music acts, as well as local food vendors and merchants.

ScoreMore also helped to bring about one of the most successful and sought-after events in SXSW history, The ILLMORE, which concluded in 2016. The Austin-based group now regularly books shows with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, Chance the Rapper, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and more who have grown from playing shows at 100-person bars to 10,000+ arenas.
