How to Festival: Decadence AZ 2015


With less than two weeks until Decadence AZ 2015, event promoters Relentless Beats and Global Dance are in serious crunch-time. Dates are set for December 30th-31st at Rawhide Western Town & Event Center in Chandler, Arizona – the largest 1880s western-themed entertainment venue in the state. Yee-haw.

New Years Eve is a celebration of epic proportions held across the world and when asked about Decadence AZ 2015, Relentless Beats founder Thomas Turner said:

“I cannot think of a better way to close out 2015 and usher in the new year, than with some of the best names in dance music… Relentless Beats is excited to welcome the world to the valley, to celebrate like only we know how.”

Turner couldn’t be more right. Few cities offer the weather Arizona usually brings on New Years Eve – perfect temperatures for an evening of revelry. And if you’ve visited the Phoenix area, you know how rowdy we get.

The lineup for Decadence AZ is outrageous. Jack Ü is an American supergroup DJ duo side project made up of Diplo and Skrillex. We threw supergroup in there for a reason. Skrillex is one of the top DJs and has been since electronic music has made it’s surge into mainstream over the past 5+ years. Diplo founded Mad Decent, a record label and traveling tour that hits both land and sea. To add to their rising status, Jack Ü has recently teamed up with global superstar Justin Bieber, Canada’s pride and joy (sorry Trebek).

ODESZA is another rising duo worth mentioning. Formed in 2012 out of Seattle, ODESZA offers a sound everyone can jam to. In just a couple short years, they’ve gone from opening for Teen Daze and Beat Connection at a small venue in Bellingham, WA to selling out 28 shows on their 2014 tour. ODESZA has played nearly every festival out there, notables include Coachella, SXSW, Bonnaroo, and Electric Forest. ODESZA also sits atop the lineup for many upcoming festivals including Holy Ship, Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival, Lollapalooza South America, and more events and venues around the world.

Crizzly brings another dynamic to Decadence AZ 2015 – trap. Gritty and grimy, twerking music if you will, trap music has made a surge in the past few years. Originating in the early 90s in the Southern US states, we’ve found trap is one of the easiest genres to dance to. Our love for Southern rap and hip hop might have something to do with this.

Each artist on the Decadence AZ 2015 lineup brings something different to Chandler this New Years Eve. We’re especially looking forward to some group therapy during Above & Beyond and seeing Adventure Club, Borgore, and Pretty Lights.
