Decadence Colorado always stands out as the premier new year’s eve event in the country. This year though, they really outdid themselves. As is tradition, the festival slowly announced it’s line up over the course of several days with individual artist Facebook posts. While the first day of posts initially drew unfounded and at times
These days, a Skrillex set is hard to come by. However, this New Year’s Eve, fans will help him ring in 2019 at not only the previously-announced Snowta in Minneapolis, but at Arizona’s most coveted NYE experience, Decadence the day before.
Skrillex is no stranger to Decadence, either. He and Diplo closed out the fest in 2015 together in the height of their short-lived stint as Jack Ü. This year, Skrilly will join Porter Robinson as Decadence co-headliners to be announced thus far.
While the rest of the lineup for Decadence has yet to be announced, previously-booked acts have included Kaskade, deadmau5, Disclosure. Needless to say, the event is an inexorable can’t-miss for Arizonian EDM enthusiasts.
It is that time of year again. New Year’s Eve events are upon us. One of the most impressive line ups we have seen so far is that of Decadence’s Arizona addition. The multi-day festival which started in Colorado expanded to Arizona a few years ago, and now it has taken on a life of
Marking the beginning of its journey in Phoenix, Arizona, the founders of Decadence and Phoenix Lights Festival have revealed their newest venture: a wild-west themed, weekend extravaganza by the name of Goldrush Festival. Set to take place over the weekend of November 18-19, Goldrush amasses first-class talent from both the electronic and hip-hop scenes that mosey on out to the desert.
Each of the three stages encompass a particular attribute of the Western theme, and are named accordingly to that niche: Golden Gorge, Pioneer Peak and The Hideout. Acquiring a mixture of fan-favorites across the hip-hop and electronic music spectrum, the Golden Gorge will host names like Marshmello, Migos, and Dillon Francis as headlining acts. Not shying away from this spectacle, bass-heads will be delighted to see the addition of Excision, set to perform a special set at this stage.
Past the mainstage, Pioneer Peak pursues to host a more intimate combination of the delectable electronic and rap talents, With performances by A-Trak b2b Baauer, Malaa and Mija dominating this scene, underground and Soundcloud-fanatic rap fans will also be pleased to see the additions of $uicideboy$, Ugly God, and Lil Pump, amongst other rising performers.
Without forgetting about the techno and house enthusiasts, Goldrush introduces their Hideout stage. Acquiring artists such as tech-house devotees Camelphat, to those from beloved Dirtybird campers such as Claude Vonstroke and Shiba San, The Hideout conveys the ideal underground sanctuary, for darker and dirtier beats.
General admission tickets for this two-day event start at $179, and single day passes are available for $89, and $79, and can be found online.
New Year’s festivals hold a special place in my heart. Sure, who doesn’t love the idea of saying goodbye to the year prior and getting amped for the New Year, all in the presence of your favorite DJs? But for me, it was a New Year’s Eve a few years back that I attended my
As the electronic dance music wave started to quickly spread across the United States, there were some figures who immediately found success within this recent widespread movement – banking on the massive popularity of the culture. One of these’s figures is known to throw some of the celebrated events in dance music, from Decadence Arizona and
Serving as the final performance of an unprecedentedly impressive year, Eric Prydz’s New Year’s Eve slot at Colorado’s Decadence Festival was handily one of the most anticipated sets of the event. Even without the pomp and frills of his legendary EPIC 4.0 LED fortress, concertgoers were well aware that the pioneering performer would put on an inimitable spectacle of a performance to conclude 2016 on a transcendent note.
By all accounts, the master did not disappoint.
Perhaps the most exciting footage available from his performance thus far sees Prydz treat Decadence attendees to his private edit of U2’s “New Year’s Day” – a fitting choice for the NYE festival. Connoisseurs of the Swedish artist on his dedicated sub-reddit assert that Prydz premiered the edit in 2014, but it has since been rarely included in sets thereafter. Watch his scintillating rendition of U2’s hit above, which begins as a minimally tweaked version of the original track before climaxing phenomenally right around the four-minute mark.
At this point, a lot of people already know about the situation on NYE in which Marshmello fans “were forced” to listen to deadmau5 “open” up for their favorite artist, and yet were let down because his set was boring or didn’t have many drops. And while the set times could have potentially been handled better, that’s really no reason to demean an artist, especially one like deadmau5 for playing into their own wheelhouse and not the one of the artist following them.
A day later, deadmau5 decided to respond to the outrage against his set, saying that he’ll be sure to “play lil yachty vocals over dope trap beets for you and your fam” next time. Check out the full tracklist from his set on the 30th here.
apologies to everyone to had to listen to actual techno. next time i will play lil yachty vocals over dope trap beets for you and your fam
If you’ve been keeping up with Snails lately, you may have noticed that he’s been teasing “something big” is on its way. He also alluded to the fact that he would reveal more details at Decadence in Colorado on New Years Eve. With plans to cover the festival, EDM Sauce had staff in attendance of
