The NFL Super Bowl XLIX festivities will have a fair-like atmosphere by bringing Coachella‘s Neon Carnival party to Phoenix. This will be the first time the Neon Carnival will be hosted anywhere besides Coachella. Brent Bolthouse, the Neon Carnival creator, said he is thrilled to take the party to the Super Bowl. It seems like the Super Bowl’s entertainment committee is “pulling out all the stops” to make it a very memorable and exciting event this year.
The festivities take place on January 28 through February 1 at Verizon Super Bowl Central. The football-themed outdoor fan campus will be the main location for media and NFL activities, and the events will be open to the public, with over one million people expected to attend. The “fan campus” will take over twelve blocks in downtown Phoenix; the Grand Canyon Experience will be Super Bowl Central’s signature event. The attraction will feature twenty climbing positions and a 18-foot waterfall. Fans will be able to attend the live music event at the Pepsi Hyped for Halftime Stage. The music event will be headlined by Walk the Moon on Friday night, and The Roots will headline their show on Saturday night. Fans will also have an opportunity to meet former NFL players and receive signed autographs. Those attending this event will have access to watch sports commentators from NBC, NFL network, ESPN, and other sports network’s live broadcasts. Admission for the Grand Canyon Experience will cost $5 dollars, and attendees must be at least six years old.
