Decadence Arizona NYE 2022

by | Jan 10, 2022 | EVENTS, REVIEWS

There was no better way to wrap up…

Decadence AZ into 2022 with pouring rain as partygoers from all around the state rang in the New Year with some of the biggest names over a two days course with the likes of Excision, Marshmello, Dillon Francis, DJ Snake and much more; as it took place at Rawhide Event Center.

Day-1 eased us to the eve of the New Year`s Eve event, however the lineup heavy hitters were DJ Snake and Chris Lake but with support of Alesso, Alison Wonderland, Madeon as the list goes on. Bundled up or ignoring the cold, this party furnished the ideal runway for everyone’s best rave outfit.

Both the Grand Palace main stage and the Royal Ballroom second stage were packed all night long as rail riders headbanged and fans of all ages raised their glasses and bounced till well into the early hours of the morning. The silent disco showcased a number of smaller artists, letting everyone experience all the different flavors of EDM.

Off and on rain shower during Day-2 did not deter the eager crowd to see Excision, Loud Luxury, Marshmello, and the stellar New Year’s Eve lineup; though staying dry was on everyone’s top priority. However, Dillon Francis ushered us into the new year with hundreds of balloons as the crowd with nuts with his signature tracks and visuals. Counting down to midnight with a series of pyrotechnic effects announcing the new year. A moment favorite was a Betty White tribute, complete with the Golden Girls theme song and photos from over many years.

2021 was a struggle for the dance community but as we rung into 2022, hopefully this will lead us back to some sense of normalcy as we are still facing the pandemic (Covid-19).

Closing 2021, let’s be grateful and thankful for Decadence AZ and see you on the dance floor.
