Phoenix Lights 2017 did not disappoint this year.  Initially was set to take place in downtown Phoenix, the festival was moved at the very last minute to Chandler, AZ where Decadence took place.  Relentless Beats and Caren West PR did an amazing job coordinating the last-minute location change due the downtown area of Phoenix had hosted the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship that very same week. Here is what all went down at the 2 day event.  3 stages, a ridiculous amount of amazing artists both headliners and up and coming, had something for everyone!  From trance, dubstep, house, bass, etc. Phoenix Lights Music Festival had it all for everyone to rage, experience good vibes, and of course PLUR out!!   The headliners we all know and love:  Tiesto, Above and Beyond, and Alesso, what can I say.  Above and Beyond and Tiesto showed us why they are legends and timeless taking us through their musical journey. It was pure magic as they went through the sets with songs we all know and love.  Alesso closed out the 2nd night of the festival and left us wanting more.  Illenium, Zed’s Dead, Bro Safari, and Keys N Krates were just full of high energy and kept us jumping and raging.  Oliver Heldens just wanted us to dance with him while Griz and Crizzly just flat out went hard!   Legendary notables:  There was something for everyone and the 2 artists that we were privileged to see in person were Pete Tong and Felix Da HouseCat.  Pete Tong is walking talking dance music.  You know him from Pete Tong BBC Radio 1 but his legacy goes beyond that and he showed us what he really means to dance music.  Felix Da HouseCat, one of the legends of house music was a nice change up as he showcased how dynamic and euphoric house music can be.  The crowds that gathered for these 2 artists were across the board-old, young, new, and familiar and it was a beautiful thing! Overall, Phoenix Lights 2017 was a huge success and we look forward to next year with even bigger artists, bigger venue, and bigger music to come.  Once again, hats off to Relentless Beats and Caren West PR for an amazing festival.  Thank you for having Raver Magazine and Lexxica be part of it all.
