As a young writer here at The Festival Voice, my second rave anniversary just passed, and I am so happy to see my journey this far within the rave scene. It has been wonderful to run into DJs walking on the sidewalk like John Summit when I saw him live at Fresh Start NYE 2022 or seeing ATLiens silently run around Bass Canyon 2023 holding a traffic cone over their heads. Now, adding more memories to my raving history, I am so excited to say that I will attend the NYE Decadence AZ 2023 at the Phoenix Raceway. This festival is unique for me since it has almost every DJ I listen to daily. DJs like Subtronics, Black Tiger Sex Machine, Green Velvet, John Summit, and Illenium (to name a few) are the headliners I already know I will have to pick in between since this lineup for Decadence AZ is absolutely STACKED (lineup attached below). I am so excited to experience this festival for the first time since it seems (to me) that the Decadence AZ lineup gets better each year. Undoubtedly, you will see me at John Summit’s set since I have been a fan of his music since the pre-party for my first-ever music festival. I heard “Make Me Feel” on my friend’s TV as we were getting ready, and I was instantly intrigued by who John Summit was.
This will be the first time I have ever traveled to Arizona, so I may or may not be prepped for the cold nights of the desert, so my suitcase might be overpacked. Luckily, I will be rooming with a long-term friend and two other girls I recently connected with on Radiate for this festival, so I’ll have many clothes to choose from ;). We plan to drive to AZ since living in Orange County makes the drive to spend a superb NYE in Arizona easy.
I will be attending both days with my rave family. If you are interested in attending, full details on all ticket and payment plan options, table reservations (strictly 21+), travel and hotel packages, and extras, including shuttles, lockers, parking, and merch, can be found at www.decadencearizona.com.
I look forward to attending and seeing if this festival will bring me back year after year as a hardcore fan. Stay tuned!
