Neon Desert Music Festival expands to two days
El Paso, TX (KTSM) — The more the merrier! At least, that's what the organizers behind downtown El Paso's successful Neon Desert Music Festival think. The festival, now in it's fourth year, will be adding a second day to the experience.
Neon Desert Music Festival will take place over Memorial Day weekend in downtown El Paso, on Saturday, May 24th and Sunday, May 25th. Two-day early bird tickets are currently selling for $55 and two-day VIP tickets are $250. Both tickets are currently available at www.neondesertmusicfestival.com.
The line-up for this year's festival is expected to be announced in February.
“We could not be more excited to share the news that we are expanding Neon Desert to two days,” said Zach Paul of Splendid Sun Productions. “Thanks to the fans, the bands and the city, we are able to expand the fest to two days and two nights of great music from around the globe. We are going to fill downtown El Paso with amazing music, artists, vendors, visitors and locals for an incredible weekend-long event.”
Due to the ongoing construction of San Jacinto Plaza, the footprint of the 2014 festival will be slightly altered. The footprint will span Cleveland Square Park, Oregon Street and Mesa Street. Vendors, activities and music will line the perimeter of The Plaza.
Since 2010, over 30,000 fans have attended NDMF and the festival has hosted many of the world's most popular indie bands and electronic artists. Previous lineups have included sets from Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group, Sparta, Moby, Moltov, Ghostland Observatory, Martin Solveig, Kinky, A-Trak, Belanova, Wolfgang Gartner, Best Coast and MSTRKRFT. The organizers of the 2014 NDMF promise that this year's lineup will be the best yet, and will include big name talent from around the world.
