The ultimate event for retro culture enthusiasts, NEON Retrofest is a hybrid festival and convention showcasing the hottest in live Synthwave Music paired with a fully interactive classic arcade, retro console, vintage computer gaming, and cult film wonderland. 

The Future Is Retro

If you have a passion for retro 80s, 90s, and analog culture, then NEON Retrofest is your paradise: a glowing panorama of vintage arcade cabinets (set on free play), decades of themed retro console setups, and rare low-tech computing stations all set to today's hottest live Synthwave and Retrowave music. You'll also find a cult trash film festival, stimulating guest speaker panels, rad vendor booths, and immersive environments around every corner. Most importantly, you'll meet others who love this aesthetic and vibe as much as you do. And it's all happening in the tropical state that fueled the Miami Vice look and feel of the 1980's: Florida.

Reset to a previous save point and discover the retro utopia of your aesthetic dreams. NEON is about selecting the best of the recent past as inspiration for creating the present and future that we desire to experience.

You have found your people. We can't wait to see you in April!
