EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — The sun has set on any hope that the Neon Desert Music Festival would be able to take place in Downtown El Paso this year.
The annual music festival has officially canceled the 2020 event. Officials made the announcement on Twitter.
“Neon Desert will no longer be taking place this year,” the statement said. “We wanted nothing more than to bring Neon Desert back to downtown El Paso this fall, but after careful monitoring of the current situation, we did not see a way to deliver the festival you know and love in 2020.”
This year’s Neon Desert, which usually takes place on Memorial Day weekend, would have been the 10th edition. In March, organizers announced that the festival had been moved to Labor Day Weekend.
In its first nine years, the festival had brought countless acts to the Sun City, including Future, Tyler, the Creator, Torey Lanez, Wiz Khalifa, Cypress Hill, Moby, Sparta, MGMT, Deftones, Daddy Yankee
