Building upon the coursework of Neon Desert, Neon Rodeo opens new opportunities for the development of multidisciplinary creative leadership and expression in the Salt Lake region. Neon Desert Co.Lab is lassoing a wide range of musical, cultural, and creative luminaries with the purpose of furthering dialog and discovery around House—in the truest spirit of the dance floor. This year, we center on Detroit’s rich House (and Techno) music history and its industrious creative communities for inspiration.
