Calling all Earthlings: Reports have been confirmed that an alien mothership is touching down this Spring in the Arizona desert. This alien aircraft has been identified as the vessel carrying the lights and sounds of one of the region’s largest and wildest parties. Phoenix Lights will be making landfall at Wild Horse Pass in Arizona on April 4-5th and is primed to bring the heat for its fifth anniversary.
The festival is named after the inexplicable event that occurred during a starry evening in 1997 when a string of bright lights floated eerily over Phoenix. Thousands of people in the surrounding areas claimed to have seen spherical lights and UFO’s during this ‘otherworldly’ event. While there are still questions surrounding that night, organizers of Phoenix Lights felt inspired by this phenomenon and decided to create a 2-day party paying homage to all things extraterrestrial.
The first group of alien musical ambassadors has already been revealed. Both Excision and Kaskade will be returning to the festival this year after their jaw-dropping 2016 headlining appearances. Joining the Dubstep Powerhouse and a Trance Godfather will be melodic Techno mainstays Jeremy Olander and Jay Lumen. House music heavy hitters Malaa and Shiba San were also announced as part of the invasion alongside the Trap Lord rapper ASAP Ferg. The full lineup is yet to be announced but these current transmissions is a testament to the sound driving this event and proof that organizers plan on treating fans to a stacked lineup.
Controlling those transmissions are the event gurus at Relentless Beats. With similar projects such as Goldrush Festival, Decadence AZ and Global Dance Festival blossoming, Relentless Beats has become Phoenix’s largest promotion company. Expect outstanding organization and top tier production as RB’s reputation tends to precede them.
Phoenix Lights is returning to the custom-built venue at the Park at Wild Horse Pass. Formerly held at Phoenix’s downtown locale at Margaret T. Hance Park, organizers have teamed the Rawhide Event Center and built a semi-permanent alien landing pad. Specifically created for Relentless Beats type events, the 29-acre park includes 56,000-square-foot lawn, a dedicated parking lot, and enough capacity for up to 10,000 people the Phoenix Times reported.
The EDM scene surrounding the Phoenix area has taken off in recent years thanks in large part to the minds at Relentless Beats. Clear evidence can be seen in the increase of music festivals in the area and the expanding of already existing events. Phoenix Lights originally started out as a single day event, but now spans to two days across multiple stages. This growth has been of great relief to Arizona music fans and they have reciprocated their thankfulness by providing unlimited good vibes and positivity that run through each events underbelly.
