RHODE ISLAND - AUGUST 24-26 2018
Three late summer nights of retrosynth-soaked sonic nirvana.
Welcome to the heart and soul of NEON. Our main stage will host some of the most iconic Synthwave, Outrun, Retro Synthpop, Darksynth and related artists in the world, creating a terrifyingly awesome lineup. The official list will be released soon, but if you think your sound is right for NEON, let us know!
Unleash high score annihilation.
NEON's video arcade lets you play authentic maintained and restored original cabinets, all running the same hardware they ran in 1981--or in 1994, since we'll be representing both eras of the arcade craze. We have plenty of experience with this, as our team has put together numerous successful arcade events.
Best of all? Keep those quarters in your pocket. Everything is on free play.
Relive the Console Wars.
We feel great reverence for early computing and home gaming roots, and we're paying homage to them at NEON with highly immersive time capsule setups featuring gaming hardware from the late 1970s right up to the 1990s.
Sit down and play your favorite classics in environments reminiscent of where they were played the first time around.
A cult film festival of the best of the worst.
Prepare for an underground film festival showcasing the most iconic and hilariously terrible Sci Fi, horror, and action movies defining--and defiling--the era. We'll be screening some of our favorites from the golden age of VHS's, one frame at a time.
"And if the wind is right, you can sail away..."
If you get exhausted navigating NEON, we're giving you options for unwinding and unplugging.
You can catch some casual, old-school tabletop gaming if that's your thing, or just sail away from it all to smooth vintage tunes of yesteryear in our Yacht Rock lounge, chilled drink in hand.
Time travel is thirsty work, after all. And yes, we said "Yacht Rock lounge."
