Phoenix, AZ (April 5, 2019)
Relentless Beats hosted another incredible Phoenix Lights festival. At an all new location, the weekend’s stacked lineup brought big names like Excision, Big Gigantic, Griz, and Kaskade to Wild Horse Pass. A change of location for Phoenix Lights this year was perfect to host the massive amount of people throughout the weekend. There were a ton of positives and rarely any negatives that came about from the weekend. The overall perspective was that this was the best Relentless Beats event they’ve hosted. The venue, artists, and working staff were all superb. The festival hosted four incredible stages; Mothership, Invasion, The Colony, and Fallout. Everything went smoothly for the attendees and that’s all you can ask for.
Getting in the venue was no hassle, food and drinks were easy to navigate, and each stage was in close proximity to one another. There were very few negatives to be said throughout the weekend. Phoenix Lights had a variety of genres to enjoy from dubstep, techno, house, to hip hop to R&B. We’re hoping for an even bigger festival season from Relentless Beats this festival season. Our journey throughout the weekend was amazing, we’ll tell you why.
Night one, on April 5th was one for the ages. We started our night off at the Invasion stage listening to the sounds of He$h and then Elephante over at the Mothership stage. After Elephante, we had a pleasure catching up with Sikdope. We discussed his new music and former festivals, check out our interview with him here. After the interview, we experienced Arty’s uplifting set. Following Arty, Subtronics and Squnto were ready to take stage for their massive back to back. After their insane performance, everyone walked over to mainstage to catch the dubstep don Excision tear down the first night.
Beginning the second night, we began at the Mothership stage where Yultron and Vanic threw down incredible sets. Following them, San Holo and Malaa brought their familiar tunes to Mothership stage. Instead of staying at Mothership to stage, we walked over to Invasion to see what Whipped Cream and Must Die had in store for us. At mainstage, Griz and Kaskade ended the weekend with two memorable performances. At the Invasion stage, Svdden Death and Doctor P B2B Cookie Monsta stunned us with bass heavy sounds to end the weekend.
We’re excited for what Relentless Beats has in store for us for the coming festivals this summer. Imagine Festival recently dropped their first line of artists. The lineup for Goldrush has yet to be dropped, we got word that this will be the biggest Goldrush to date, stay tuned.
