Haven’t quite figured out your New Year’s Eve plans yet? With the night that this planet enters a new decade just two weeks away, it’s getting to be that time to solidify travel plans and purchase your festival tickets!
If you are still on the fence regarding your chosen way to ring in 2020, let us present to you Decadence—Arizona’s largest New Year extravaganza. This December 30th and 31st, we’re lucky enough to ring in 2020 with a musical itinerary boasting Illenium, Skrillex, Fisher, G Jones, Griztronics and more! Hosted by Relentless Beats and Global Dance, expect unforgettable production and lights, impeccable organization and an all-around loving atmosphere.
Not sold yet? Here are 3 main reasons why you should consider Decadence Arizona for your special night this year:
1. Winter is the best time to visit the desert.
Sick of the cold weather and/or snow? Any interest in spending some time in the mountains after your New Year’s fun?
Decadence is located in Chandler, Arizona and not a long drive from a variety of extraordinary hiking and world-renowned adventures. The possibilities are limitless.
We’re looking at a historical average of 66- and 40-degree highs and lows for this time of the year in the area. You know what that means: less limitations in fashion, AND you don’t need to freeze on your way to your ride-share or vehicle. If you’re the adventurous type, stay a few extra days and explore the surrounding areas.
2. The tunes will take you on a journey.
Two nights of performances across three stages will entice your senses this year, hosting sub-genres of EDM including, but not limited to, house, dubstep, riddim and techno. We recommend taking a deeper look into every artist on the lineup as they are all heavy-hitters in our book, but if you are in more of a rush or would like to get a good overview, check out this playlist brought to you by Arizona’s promotion powerhouse, Relentless Beats.
3. The 2019/ 2020 run is about to be better than ever before.
Every year, this festival seems to get even shinier than the year before. The lights seem to get brighter, the visuals even more hypnotizing, and the lineup even more hard to resist. New for the 2019 run is the Weird and Wonderful interactive experience, which boasts the addition of roaming performers to the event. We’re excited to see how this incorporation of local performance art and talent will play out during its first debut in less than two weeks!
“Guests can expect an immersive and interactive experience, including dancers, circus performers, wild characters, and visual play around every corner. Weird & Wonderful will not only make each Relentless Beats event extra special for attendees, but it will also be an important and positive impact on the community. This concept will give opportunities to people within the festival family to share their talents and passion, and inspire everyone around to express themselves.” –Bri Lueder (Creative Director of Weird & Wonderful)
