The Festival Fistful: Boo! Arizona 2017
Halloween is coming in HOT and things are getting all sorts of weird in Phoenix next weekend. On October 14th, Boo! Arizona will be returning to Rawhide Events Center with enough bass to blast away the ghouls, goblins and into some next level partying. We bring you the Festival Fistful to highlight our top 5 picks you can’t miss! You can also follow our Boo!AZ Spotify playlist to jam out to the Boo! Arizona lineup on the go!
The veteran bass-peddler and head honcho of SMOG Records is going to be bringing his OWSLA supported filth to Rawhide, making sure you’re ready to turn UP! Having recently played Excision’s Lost Lands festival and released the 5-track Let Us Pray EP and single Send It all on top of launching a new sub-label called Disciple Round Table, this man is on a mission for madness and we can’t wait to see him at Rawhide!
Austin’s very own will be traveling to Phoenix this Halloween to turn the heat up way past 10 in the desert. The king of Crunkstep will be dropping bombs on the crowd just like he’s done at Electric Daisy Carnival, Escape From Wonderland, Warped Tour, and Lollapalooza. His latest release ‘HITS’ on Bassrush records absolutely SLAPS and we can’t wait to catch him going b2b with 12th Planet to headline this one.
Little has to be said about the longtime legend of Laidback Luke to make you excited about seeing him. Completing the climb from graffiti artist to worldwide superstar, his loose, super live, off-the-cuff DJing style finds him playing Red Hot Chili Peppers at the world’s biggest raves, scratching on CDJs like it’s the 90’s on vinyl and upkeeping both a producer forum and a successful dance music label in Mixmash Records. In 2012, Laidback Luke was nominated for the best European DJ award from the 27th Dance Music Awards and he’ll be bringing the house down next weekend!
The LA based behemoth of bass is back in Phoenix for another round of madness at Boo! Arizona this year. His style’s range from the deep bassline house sound that gave rise to his majorly successful single Deep Down Low, to the sexy sounds of the demobow riddim and moombahton, which caught the eye of OWSLA head honcho Skrillex as well as Mad Decent’s Diplo and catapulted this mustached monster to the forefront of the world’s largest festivals.
This UK dubstep heavyweight has been a mainstay of every bassheads library since he burst onto the scene in 2011 with his track Organ Doner being licensed out to major compilations by Warner and Ministry of Sound. Zomboy has played the world’s biggest festivals and his most recent release on Never Say Die records received huge reviews and is sure to turn you upside down.
