The Neon Desert Music Festival is a one-day event featuring 29 live music and electronic acts on four stages throughout the downtown parks. Sway into summer with a lineup of full-tilt guitars, funk, bass, and beats to fit all styles of dancing shoes. The top-billed Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group brings a trippy blend of jam-centric rock with grooves more winding than juicy ribbon candy. Kick back to audible streams of psychedelia, as warbling bass, hot saxophones, and thunderous percussions headline the night. A supporting cast of dance-driven talent including MSTRKRFT, Kinky, Dirty Vegas, and Sao Paulo's CSS, inspire collective beat bobbling among laid-back armies of concert cohorts. Peep covert acts hovering below the radar or about to blast into the big time, so you can brag to friends how you saw them first.
