Decadence Arizona

Decadence Arizona 2023

DECEMBER 30-31, 2023


Decadence Arizona is determined to make your last dance of 2023 an all out rave.

No matter where you are, New Year’s Eve is one of those holidays that is dedicated to the dance floor. And Decadence Arizona hosted by Relentless Beats, an Arizona-based EDM promoter company, along with Global Dance is determined to make your last NYE dance of 2023 an all out rave. For its ninth year, the theme is the sky realm and the lineup will have some of the bigger names in electronic music, ranging from upbeat house artists like Steve Aoki (of the Pursuit of Happiness remix) and Chris Lake, to harder headbangers like Black Tiger Sex Machine and Subtronics.

There is no shortage of EDM events, especially those on or around New Year’s Eve (see: Decadence Colorado), but what separates Decadence Arizona from the rest is their intense stage and event production. This includes their “Weird and Wonderful” performers, who float around the festival grounds — the Phoenix Raceway — and add a touch of personal magic to the world already awash in color and lasers. 

Outside in the desert, be sure to be mindful of nighttime temperature drops. Hopefully, the mosh pits and customary New Year’s Eve liquor coat will keep you warm all the way to 2024. Plus, we’re willing to wage that Decadence Arizona be warmer than the Colorado counterpart.
