Stoked about the latest confirmation, the Queen of Synthwave Vocalists..

Today we are stoked to announce that the always rad Dana Jean Phoenix has been added to the unbelievable NEON lineup this summer!

Hailing from Toronto, DJP has established herself as one of the most instantly recognizable vocalists in the retrosynth revival, bringing catchy 80s-inspired melodies to life both in her solo project, and by collaborating with synthwave luminaries GosT, Perturbator, Timecop1983, Highway Superstar, and Sunglasses Kid.

Her recent release Synth City was incredibly well received, pushing the boundaries of vocal-led retro popwave to new levels. With it she created the sonic equivalent of the elusive neon sunset those of us who love this music are always searching for, but rarely find.
Dana Jean Phoenix - Le Mirage (Official Lyric Video)


NEON is a three-day, three-night, non-stop festival dedicated to late 20th century entertainment and all of the iconic sights and sounds that defined it, with an additional emphasis on celebrating a future that never was. Call it "Retrofuturism" if you like, because we do. It is the vision of the future as predicted by the past, and the high-octane nostalgia that comes with that concept.

The first annual NEON is being designed from the ground up to be a paradise for people who dig the aesthetic described above, and it is going to take the form of an event offering killer music, retro arcade and console gaming, evocative art, cult film, all sorts of guests, workshops and a lot more.
