Celebrities and guests at the Brent Bolthouse-produced bash kicked off the first weekend of Coachella with carnival games and thrill rides including bumper cars, and an enormous ferris wheel.

During the first weekend Coachella 2012, WHERE LA headed to the third annual Neon Carnival hosted by A|X Armani Exchange and T-Mobile on Saturday night. This killer, invite-only event produced by Brent Bolthouse was definitely one we were glad not to miss!

Thousands of festival-goers flocked to the neon-lit pop up carnival, including a dozens of Hollywood A-listers like Usher, Emma Roberts, Gerard Butler, Paris Hilton, Kellan Lutz, and Alexander Wang, among many others.

We got down to some of our favorite tunes spun by DJ Kayper on the central dance floor, while bouncing back and forth between the carnival games, bumper cars, enormous ferris wheel and giant slide.
