The Perfect Halloween Eve Party: Supernatural Fest

Denver’s biggest Halloween Dance Festival returned on October 30th. Global Dance brought Supernatural Festival to the National Western Complex in Denver, Colorado. It was sure to be a wicked good time, with six stages and a stunning lineup featuring top artists Galantis, Snails, Flux Pavillion, Monxx, and Spag Heddy.  Also, Denver local favorites Mport and Decadon graced the stage. Other Denver locals DJ’s also made an appearance. 

The night kicked off at 7 pm and attendees filled up the National Western Complex quickly with hundreds of unique and fun costumes. The venue was filled with the Halloween theme and vibe all throughout. It consisted of six different stages: Supernatural Arena, Afterlife Hall, Dungeon, Badlands Bass Hall, Haunted Academy, and Purgatory. Each stage had a different vibe of music suitable for every single type of electronic dance music lover. From drum and bass, house, and dubstep, attendees were sure to have a great time. Supernatural Arena also had various vendors, so attendees were able to pick up a new Grassroots hat or even merchandise to support their favorite artists.

Decadence Arizona: New Year’s Eve

Decadence Arizona is one of the biggest parties on New Year’s Eve across the nation. It is hosted by Relentless Beats and is held at the Rawhide Event Center in Chandler, AZ. It is the perfect way to bring in the new year surrounded by friends and some of the hottest DJs right now. This two day festival was full of fantastic artists including Illenium, G Jones, Galantis, Dillion Francis, Zeds Dead and some great mashups like Dab The Sky and Griztronics. Plenty of local talent was performing as well, including Blossom and Storytime. This was my second year attending this celebratory festival and I was excited to see what changes were being made for this year.

Decadence Arizona 2019

This year’s experience exceeded expectations. Relentless really stepped up their game to make this festival very enjoyable while being realistic. I was very happy with the layout, the lineup, and the crowd. Every aspect of this festival was very well done. There were three stages, plenty of hangout spots, and the compact layout kept everything within walking distance so you didn’t miss any music. There were also heaters galore to keep you toasty while taking a break from dancing.

The Relentless Beats Rangers were also on standby all night. They greeted you at the gate with a high five and were ready to answer any questions about the show. They were there to support and guide you with whatever you may need. Everyone was very welcoming and it was comforting to know that you were in a judgment-free zone so you could be yourself. 

Vendors of all types were ready and eager to provide any party favors, including chicken tenders, burgers and even desserts like funnel cake and fresh-baked cookies to satisfy your sweet tooth. Water stations around the venue were easily accessible to keep you hydrated all night. A huge merchandise booth was readily available so you were able to represent and support your favorite artist that was playing during the festival. There were also a lot of vendors selling giant hand fans, pashminas, and even homemade perlers. It was great to see some local businesses get to be a part of this experience.

New Year, New Memories

Everything at Decadence Arizona was really positive. The vibes, the crowd, and the music were so enticing. It’s events like this that remind you why you started going to shows and the great community that you’re apart of. Decadence is a great way to make new memories while manifesting everything you want to do for the new year. If you have never been before I would highly recommend going for 2020 and bringing your friends along with you. Relentless Beats will keep outdoing themselves and you’re not going to want to miss out on this amazing experience.

Decadence AZ Phase 2

This New Year just landed a huge upgrade with fresh additions to the year’s greatest party. Relentless Beats and Global Dance have outdone themselves again, bringing in the hottest talent alive to make the experience as wild and fantastic as humanly possible.

New Additions

We now get to look forward to an unforgettable night with Griztronics, a special collaboration between Subtronics and Griz. With this special back-to-back, we can expect a twist from Griz back to his Dubstep roots. Tag-teamed with Subtronics’ experimental low-end sound it should be a tasty treat.

That’s just the beginning to the new additions, we will also be welcoming to the stage EDM legends Zeds Dead to curate a ride full of intensity and emotion that few can deliver as gracefully as these two men. 

The Swedish duo Christan Karlsson and Linus Eklow, otherwise known as Galantis, will also be joining the party.  Galantis explores a range of musical styles, from Techno to House with Pop and Jazz influences. For anyone who hasn’t seen them, it is hard to describe their sets as anything but fun! Last time I saw the duo I just couldn’t stop smiling; it’s just that kind of music. 

Next on the list let’s talk about Joyryde. The name really does a great job summing up the vibe. If I were to be driving around some sweet stolen whips, you better believe I’d be bumping Joyryde.  As he says himself, “For best results, Install sub woofer in vehicle, Invite friends & Gas Pedal, Gas Pedal, Gas Pedal.” I have to agree and I’m looking forward to the ride.

Underground Artists

With so many new additions it’s difficult to give each artist the credit they deserve. I’m happy to see some recently underground musicians making their way to such a renowned platform as Decadence.  Artists like G-Jones who has been blowing up the scene with his Ineffable Truth tour this year. As well as Whipped Cream who is delightfully experimental with huge sound design that does not disappoint. If you are looking to hear something new be sure to check her out.  Space Jesus will be making his appearance, as well, to bless us with wonky Bass jams.

Decadence Founders

Decadence is brought to you by Relentless Beats. This company strives to provide its fans with the best overall experience. By opening up a public survey, show goers had their voices heard. Receiving an overwhelming response, much of which was a continuation of conversations with fans since the close of 2018, Relentless Beats has begun utilizing the feedback to create the best Decadence yet. Ways to improve the guest experience have already been implemented. These include increased flooring and dedicated walkways at and between the stages, additional entry and exit gates at the main stage, as well as a reconfigured and improved VIP experience, that will create better flow and shorter wait times, and increased chill stations and staffed water resources.

“As a company, it has always been our intent to improve Decadence year after year,” says Relentless Beats founder Thomas Turner. “I have read each comment, and I hear the fans loud and clear. Decadence will continue to grow, as will my team to make sure the fan experience is what people have come to expect from us.”
