The Smith Family Reunion

After 4 days of having only the sun to track the passage of time and the sound of sub bass still ringing in my ears as I was surrounded by music I find myself having to write heavy words about the end of an era. A sense of finality combined with a sense of excitement for the future. Catawba River Campground will always hold a special place in the hearts of campers and burners everwhere. From the bridge that you guys need to stop jumping off of (seriously, do you want cops, because that’s how you get cops!) to the aptly named Noisy Island, we raged in the sun and kept going hard when the nights turned cold. In 4 short days a community was created exemplifying the tenants of peace, love, unity, and respect. We make jokes regarding these tenants but our ability to come together and embrace them as a way of life is what makes a Neon Music Festival the magical place that it is. Incredible performances by all the DJs, mind blowing lights and sound coming from all corners of the campground, port-a-johns that somehow seemed to always be stocked with toilet paper, and a campfire surrounded by the most unique and amazing people you will ever have the pleasure of meeting regardless of where you walk on the campground made this, the “last Burn Neon”, one to be remembered.

The future of Neon is still to come. While the Smith family may have outgrown its current stomping grounds we will always hold fond memories of our home away from home tucked away in the mountains. We can’t wait to see what the future will hold as we move into a new space and welcome new members to the family. A very special thank you goes out to Evan, Miranda, and Porsha for creating this environment for all of us. We can’t wait to see this community grow into its full potential in the future. And to all of the members of the Smith family, thank you for raging with us.

We’ll be periodically updating this page with the sets from Burn Neon 3 as we receive them. Check back later for more sets when they are added!
