Decadence AZ Goes Above and Beyond to Ring In the Decade

Prior to Decadence Arizona kicking off this year, there was some skepticism around the event after some logistic issues surrounded last year’s festival. To make amends, Relentless Beats, the producer of the event, asked for the feedback from attendees on how the festival could improve. Well, Relentless Beats took that feedback to heart and delivered.

Relentless Beats shrunk the venue down to about half the size of last year’s edition, reduced the attendance, created less choke points for people moving from each of the stages, and put each stage right next to each other for easy movement with multiple entry points. These changes alleviated many of the pains people expressed after last year and it made for a great experience to ring in the decade.

The logistics of the festival weren’t the only thing which was on point. The stage production was stellar with explosive sets being played all-around over the course of the two days. House music ran strong on day 1 with AC Slater, Tchami x Malaa: No Redemption, Nora En Pure, and Jamie Jones all doing their thing with Dillon Francis, Skrillex, Illenium, and Adam Beyer also being thrown into the mix for a massive night of music.

Day 2 also came in with a roar. Diplo kicked things off early at the main stage before moving into Zeds Dead and then Galantis before Joyride brought in the new year and culminating with the debut of Griztronics. The Royal Circus stage saw G Jones bring in the decade and closed out with the deeper side of things with Ardalan and Fisher.

Throughout the two days there was also the silent disco stage, the Playhouse, which housed three channels and featured performance artists dubbed Weird & Wonderful where they all showed off their skills. It was a great place to go warm up and catch some good vibes when you wanted to some downtime.

Overall you could tell Relentless Beats really wanted to show everyone that the company values the community in which it operates in and I would say they succeeded with this event. It was a fantastic way to bring in the 2020s and we can’t wait to see where this festival will go from here.
