Arizona’s Phoenix Lights Festival Summons The Mothership

In 1997, a V-shaped UFO left the city of Phoenix scratching their heads and searching for answers. Two decades later, thousands of candy-colored festival fanatics are descending upon the city’s arts district for two days of nonstop bass and otherworldly experiences at Phoenix Lights, an electronic music festival themed after the ’97 phenomenon.



Phoenix Lights takes place April 8-9 at Margaret T. Hance Park with an impressive roster featuring Above & Beyond, Alesso, Tiesto, STS9, Vince Staples and many more. New this year, Relentless Beats – the brains behind the festival – will premiere their house, techno, and underground bass division, RBDeep. The dedicated stage boasts performances from some of the scene’s biggest names like Justin Martin, Lane 8, Pete Tong, Tiga, and others. If you’re looking for a chance to hitch a ride into space, get ready to summon the mothership and party under the Arizona sky like there’s no tomorrow. You might just get beamed up.
