Breaking News: Phoenix Lights Has Crash-Landed in Arizona
As the sun sets on the Arizona horizon, Phoenix Lights: Altered Orbit beamed down and crash-landed for the weekend. This out-of-this-world two day festival, produced by Relentless Beats, abducted the EDM community and left no crumbs when it came to revamping this beloved event. The return of Phx Lights has been long-awaited and fans have been beaming with excitement to experience it again.
Location, Layout, and Production
Phx Lights calls Phoenix Raceway home for the weekend of April 1st and 2nd. This new festival property is located in Avondale, AZ which is only 20 minutes outside Downtown Phoenix. Parking was easy and so was finding the box office and entry lines. ADA parking was also available with no charge for either lots. Entrance and exit of the property went very smoothly with minimal traffic.
I really appreciated the huge open space and how Relentless Beats was able to utilize it for the attendee’s benefit. This never used before location was able to fit not only RB’s megastructure, but also a very attention-grabbing VIP area, loads of food and drink stands, shop vendors, a silent disco, an art car stage, Monster semi-trucks, and various art installations. There was also plenty of room for dancing and the crowd never felt squished.
The two-day event also featured three stages known as the Mothership, the Invasion, and the Fallout.
Attendees could feel the cosmic energy flowing through the crowd when multiple phenomenal artists took the stage this past weekend.
Day 1 featured Griz, Liquid Stranger, Rusko, Champagne Drip, Smoakland and Proper.
Day 2 featured RL Grime, Zomboy, Flosstradamus, Jansten, Leotrix, and Saas.
Besides the infamous megastructure, Phoenix Lights also had a silent disco that was hosted by BeatBox Beverages and they had an art car stage that featured new and upcoming artists along with local favorites. To name a few, we were able to experience the styles of Dark Mark, VooDreau, Electric Polar Bears, Medicine Mike, Peachy Keen, and more. Fans were able to get their fix of dubstep, house, techno, trance, dnb, and various other genres throughout the weekend!
Sponsors, Vendors, and Art
Phoenix Lights had so many incredible sponsors showing their love and support this past weekend! To name a few, fans were able to see and get more information on Monster Energy, Bud Light, Kona Brewing Co., Project Rave, White Claw Hard Seltzer, and more.
To fill all your rave accessories and needs, there were plenty of shop vendors to choose from! Attendees were able to shop from Kandies World, Kritter Klips, Elite Wear, We Rave Hard, and more.

Some art installations included multiple spots for photo ops and a mural letting attendees know that “YOU ARE AMAZING” by Jayarr.art.
Bringing art to life this weekend, the Weird & Wonderful Cast were there and performed in various locations throughout the festival grounds.
I would 100% recommend Phoenix Lights to my fellow festival lovers. Relentless Beats is constantly evolving with every show they put on and I am so excited for their future plans.
