Why Decadence AZ is the #1 NYE party on the West Coast!!!

If you live anywhere near the West Coast, chances are you’ve already heard of Decadence.  The massive EDM new year’s event has made waves at both it’s flagship location in Colorado, and (in our opinion the far superior) Phoenix/Chandler location for years.  Each year topping itself in lineups and attractions, Decadence (AZ) is with out a doubt the best new year’s party on both the west coast and the country, and let us tell you why.

Taking place December 30 & 31 and produced by the dream team of Relentless Beats and Global Dance Productions, Decadence (AZ) continues to set new standards for itself and neighboring festivals around.

Last year’s Decadence (AZ) was FestHype’s first time attending and to say that we were unprepared would be a total understatement.  Before traveling across state lines to the infamous Rawhide Town & Event Center in Chandler, AZ; we spent the previous night in San Diego for the Infinity NYE event.  And although the night was fun,  it couldn’t honestly prepare us for the next night to come at Decadence (AZ).

In all honesty, it was a whole other beast.  As the Uber driver made his way through the festive holiday lights and pathways to the front of the car line (telling us frankly odd stories about his strange DMT trip with his frat bros), we could feel the anticipation grow immensely.  We could feel the thumping bass from the western themed event center rattling our bones as we crept nearer and nearer towards the entrance.

The random ravers that we did happen to talk to at Infinity couldn’t contain their excitement for us when we told them that we were going to Decadence, which in turn grew our expectations even greater.  We were ready to live, love and dance, and with out ever being there before, we already felt at home.

And we were not let down, not two steps into the entrance and you could feel the electricity in the air.  Flowing freely from person to person like the brightly colored kandi that covered the crowd.  Instantly we were transformed, as we became overwhelmed by the massive amounts of amazing music and love that overwhelmed our senses.


(shout out to Melissa of Relentless Beats who is absolutely amazing and personifies that brand!)

Not even a steady drizzle of rain was able to dampen the spirits or mood of the Decadence (AZ) crowd.  People even seemed to enjoy it more as they bounced from tent to tent to the bumping sounds of the biggest names in EDM.  It didn’t matter what time you entered, or even which tent.  There was always great music and DJ’s playing at all times!

This year’s lineup is no different.  Topping off 2017 and kicking off the new year will be Armin Van Buren, Big Wild, Bijou, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Borgore, Boys Noize, Chet Porter, CryWolf, Deorro, Destructo, Duke Dumont, Galantis, Gerry Gonza, Justice (DJ set), K?D, Loud Luxury, Louis The Child, Madeon, Medasin, Oliver Heldens, Party Favor, Paz, Petit Biscuit, Rufus Du Sol, Snails, Steve Aoki, Tchami, Tokimonsta, What So Not, Zedd, Zed’s Dead b2b Jauz, and Zhu.

It is insane how stacked this year’s lineup is, but at this point that is a standard for Decadence (AZ).  We personally are most excited for Zedd.  He absolutley blew our mind last year and officially turned MVD into and EDM fan.  Which if you have listened to the show at all you will know was an almost impossible feat.


Some other artists that we are insanely excited to see and we highly suggest you check out are Galantis.  We have ran into Galantis on a few different occasions and not only are they amazing musicians but are incredible people who go out of their way to connect with fans


If you haven’t gotten tickets yet we highly suggest you get on it before they sell out.  Currently you can still get GA tickets for $209, VIP for $329, Platinum VIP for $799, and in our opinion that is one of the best NYE deals you can find anywhere.  For more information be sure to visit http://decadencearizona.com/
