Do you like rock & roll music? If it’s guitars you seek, distortion and feedback, garage-rocker Ty Segall is the guy for you.

Catch him this year at Neon; hopefully he will melt your faces with the power of rock.


Neon usually closes the night with electronic DJs to groove out the final hours of the festival. Way on top of the list of artist on the NDMF poster this year is none other than Dutch house DJ—Hardwell.

Hip-hop is alive and doing well at this year’s Neon.
