In recent years, Arizona has become a New Year’s Eve hotspot for EDM revelers with the rise of Decadence — one of the most increasingly in-demand festivals of the year, marked by blockbuster lineups and one-of-a-kind fan experiences. This year, the festival is promising headline performances from Eric Prydz and Skrillex, with Above & Beyond, REZZ, Porter Robinson, and Marshmello all featured on the 2018 lineup as well. Though more than just an immersive festival environment and a stacked talent roster, Decadence is also promoting once-in-a-lifetime fan experiences through their renewed partnership with fundraising platform Surreal this year.
This year’s proceeds will benefit Childhelp, a national nonprofit organization which provides emotional, educational, and spiritual support to abused, neglected and at-risk children. For a small donation through the platform, fans and festival goers can enter to win a handful of exciting VIP experiences with some of this year’s performers including: getting dunked on by Shaquille O’Neal before his b2b performance with NGHTMRE, or throwing tacos on stage with Paz. There’s a meet and greet with Marshmello up for grabs, a photo opp with Alison Wonderland, and festival hangs with 4B. Prize winners also get two VIP tickets to Decadence AZ for themselves and a friend, roundtrip airfare courtesy of Orbitz and hotel accommodations in addition to their artist experience. Fans can also gain an extry to the contest of their choosing by subscribing to Childhelp’s newsletter.

Many dance music artists aspire to make a career out of their craft, but cutting through the large pool of competition is often difficult task. WAV Media and their Mixmag partners endeavored to help musicians achieve such a goal, and have since birthed “Magnified” as a solution.
The series does what its name implies. Ten artists who sign up for a WAV Media account will be handpicked to be “Magnified,” with each being covered extensively in Mixmag and the WAV platform through exclusive interviews, videos, and performances. Fans will be given an intimate look into their processes that will only further their reputations as the next generation of top talent.
Ten artists, which include J. Worra, Cassian, Octo Octa, and more, have already been chosen for the inaugural round; however, the occasion has led to the Magnified hosts opening the class up for two more artists. Those chosen will score their own Mixmag Lab, a festival slot, and the extensive media attention that their counterparts are already set to receive.
WAV Media began in LA as a platform dedicated to the artists. It’s forged partnerships with a number of media outlets across the musical spectrum to empower creators on the front end, while also providing a convenient back end for artists to more effectively track and grow their audience. With Magnified now in session, the process could be even more expedited for those driven enough.
