At the Drive In headlining El Paso fest Neon Desert (lineup)

Neon Desert 2018 Lineup

El Paso’s Neon Desert Music Festival has announced its 2018 lineup, and it features an array of artists from across the musical spectrum, headlined by EDM giants Martin Garrix and Dillon Francis, rapper Gucci Mane, and… At The Drive In.

While it might seem weird that At the Drive In are headlining a mostly-rap/EDM fest, the fest’s mission is “to produce an annual music festival for El Paso by El Pasoans, while providing the local artistic community an outlet to showcase their talents alongside national and international headliners,” so it makes sense that they would want to book their reunited hometown heroes. Plus, the ATDI family has had connections to Neon Desert since day one. The Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group headlined the first year, and ATDI offshoot Sparta co-headlined the second year, which Omar Rodriguez Lopez collaborators Le Butcherettes also played.

In keeping with the “for El Paso by El Pasoans” theme, there’s a focus on Latin music (Puerto Rican singer Farukko, Colombian band Bomba Estereo, Mexican singer Caloncho, El Paso locals Dulce Mal, etc), and ATDI and their related projects have long incorporated Latin music into their sound.

The lineup also includes other cool stuff like Cardi B, Third Eye Blind, The Drums, Cults, Playboi Carti, J.I.D, EarthGang, Boogie, Buddy, The Garden, and more. Tickets are on sale now. You can view the full lineup below.
