Fall is quickly creeping into the Arizona deserts, reminding us why we chose to deal with the heat of the summer in the first place. The lovely weather gives perfect reason to give into any adventure that arises and the time to give in is now, as Rawhide Western Center is treating us with a unique outdoor festival during the weekend before Thanksgiving.
The long awaited return of Bassnectar is soon upon Phoenix with accompanying acts of Nero, Louis the Child, Datsik, and Alison Wonderland, to name a few. Global Dance Festival is back and bigger than ever, a one-night extravaganza with two stages. With such a powerful lineup, November 19th better be ready for the craziness that is about to ensue.
The Western Town feels like home with its second year of hosting the festival, perfect for the occasion. The name says it all, the western themed venue couldn’t be more accurate for the theme of the festival- Western Edition. Needless to say, this is the ideal time to pull out those cowboy boots and hats and head out to the saloon at Rawhide to get jiggy with the biggest lineup the venue has every seen. The venue provides lots of room for dancing, exploring, and most importantly, head-banging.
Last playing in Arizona in 2012, Bassnectar is sure to make an unforgettable comeback that you don’t wanna miss. During this break, he has released several albums such as “Into the Sun” and “Unlimited”, even hosting a self-curated camping festival (Bass Center- Colorado) at the end of this past summer. The “king of bass” surely knows how to please a crowd, having many die-hard fans follow him around his tours from stop to stop yearly. Let the deep sounds of bass take over this November and give in to the call of fall for adventure!
