The 2019 Neon Desert festival will take place from Saturday, May 25, to Sunday, May 26, at Cleveland Square Park and San Jacinto Plaza. Neon Desert is an annual 2-day musical festival held in downtown El Paso, Texas, around the end of May.

The festival offers five different ticket packages, ranging from general admission to platinum VIP tickets. Attendees can purchase a ticket for one or both days of the festival. A one-day general admission ticket is priced at $89 and a two-day general admission ticket is priced at $119.

A two-day VIP ticket is priced at $250 with access to a VIP entry lane, outdoor lounge with food trucks, complimentary El Paso electric phone charging stations, free barber, massages, beauty bar, custom Neon Desert photo booth, a Drip Drive IV Hydration Service, lawn games and access to a private merchandise tent.

A two-day Platinum VIP ticket is priced at $499 with the same amenities as the regular VIP ticket, with additional access to an exclusive main stage viewing area and complimentary dinner provided by Crave Kitchen and Bar.

To enter the festival, attendees must show proof of a valid wristband as their admission. Attendees are encouraged to bring water and a small bag to hold necessities.

The Saturday lineup includes artists Rezz, Miguel, Steve Aoki, Tory Lanez, Don Omar, Tyga, Dashboard Confessional and Shoreline Mafia. Wiz Khalifa, Young Thug, Kali Uchis, Gunna, Deorro, Tchami and Chicano Batman will be featured on Sunday.

Attendees can view these artists at one of the festival’s three stages: the Rio Bravo Stage, the Franklin Mountains Stage or the Paso Del Norte Stage. The sites’ new address is 300 N Kansas and the entrance is at the intersection of Kansas Street and Texas Avenue. Doors will open at 3:00 p.m. on both days.

The Explorer will be giving away two two-day general admission tickets. For a chance to win, stop by room A32 before May 1.
