The sixth-annual Phoenix Lights Festival is an immersive electronic music experience presented by Relentless Beats, a dance music and promotion company. The festival has continued to grow over the years, specializing in creating an atmosphere of "big beats, big party." The 2020 festivities will take place at The Park at Wild Horse Pass, which is part of the Gila River Indian Community. For thousands of years, this ancient land along the Gila River has been home to the Maricopa and Pima Native American tribes. The park features picturesque views of the Sonoran Desert with mountainous backdrops. The event planners will transform this location into the music festival of the year in Arizona. The vast lineup of both upcoming and established musicians and DJs is sure to get you excited. This two-day festival features everything you need to have a good time, including VIP tickets, on-site vendors, festival T-shirts and more.
There will be a range of food vendors available inside the festival site. The event is cashless, so wristbands must be activated, or you can add cash at top-up stations for RFID payments at all on-site vendors.
