Crush Arizona 2019: Festival Review
Crush Arizona celebrates its ten year anniversary with sick bass drops, and enchanting beats. Centered around a theme of love; Crush Arizona is sure to make you find a passion for shuffling, fist bumping, head banging, and over all raving. The festival is located in the middle of the desert, Rawhide Western Town and Event Center 5700 W North Loop Rd, Chandler, AZ.
For its ten year anniversary Crush established one dynamic, super powered stage with multiple gigantic heart screens displayed. Other festivities included: merchandise for sale, a fantastic bar, a massive lit up heart sculpture, and photo opportunities in front of the wall of love.
This year Crush featured EDM artist like: Alesso, Kaivon, Wuki, Seven Lions, JOYRYDE, 3LAU, and so many more. I personally really enjoyed DJ Kaivon’s setlist. He had the perfect blend of uplifting melodies, and harsh bass drops. Kaivon also played around with the ‘love’ theme Crush was promoting. Throughout his show he encouraged the audience to spread the love by telling us to, “turn to the closest person next to us and give them a hug” or “to tell someone you don’t know that you love them.”
