Tomorrow in AZ: La La Land Music Festival @ PHX Convention Center

Prepare for Electronic Dance Music to take over Phoenix, Arizona this Friday, December 7th at Arizona's hugest massive of the year with La La Land Music Festival, expected to be bigger than any other valley event to date. Five years in the making, this year's La La Land is expected to have an attendance of 10,000 EDM lovers from all over the nation! After being a go-to underground event within the Valley's rave scene for years, this year it's headed for the massive new Convention Center in Downtown Phoenix, and its three larger-than-life stages will be equipped to drop the bass in The Valley like we've never heard before. Unlike past editions this one isn't a dusk-til-dawn event, but will be held from 4 PM - 12 AM for obvious legal reasons. This event's lineup is extremely diverse and fully-loaded with super talented DJs with one-of-a-kind music styles. All together, there are thirty producers playing this event, with big names such as Lucky Date, Noisecontrollers, Bro Safari, and DJ BL3ND in attendance in addition to the headliners below. Watch out for our go-to photog with the blue hair at the event, and remember to say cheese people (not just cheese).

Datsik

Every time I see Canadian Dubstep artist Datsik, I leave with my face completely melted, and I know I can expect the same result after his headlining set at La La Land!  Datsik, whose real name Troy Beetles, describes his style as "dark and dirty", and this vibe never fails to disappoint. Be sure to catch his set if you don't want to miss out on bone-rattling beats and filthy bass that will blow your brains out. We're excited to see if he switches up the style this time and drops some of those Trap productions he's been working on!

Cosmic Gate

Our expectations for German Trance duo, Cosmic Gate are set high for their headlining show at La La Land. Known for their creative and illustrious live shows, we can not wait to see what they have in store for us. With their effortless, kinetic sound that incorporates riveting melodies and synths that can captivate the crowd instantly, Cosmic Gate is sure to leave the audience enthralled and connected not only to the music, but with one another as well.

 

Mat Zo 

La La Land was lucky to land yet another talented Trance/Progressive artistEnglish Anjunabeats producer Mat Zo will be gracing the stage with his stunning visuals and can always be counted on to bring on the lasers. With his newest collaboration with Porter Robinson, our favorite new track here at EDM Lounge, "Easy," we can expect to hear new sounds of Electro, House, and Trance all included in one spectacular set. Zo is known for being the master of buildups, and his beats are sure to carry you far above the floor on an intense emotional journey of sight and sound. Don't miss him!

 

Michael Woods

Earlier on this year, Michael Woods performed beautifully here in Phoenix at Hypnotica Music Festival, and the anticipation for his set just keeps growing. This English Tech/Progressive House producer never fails to give his listeners an eargasm (or multiple!), and always brings the most unexpected synths to the table. One can only hope he brings the vibrant lasers with him to wow the crowd once again.

Basshunter

"All I've Ever Wanted" was to see Basshunter! That track is engraved in our brains forever! Let's be honest, there's not many people out there who would admit that they don't love this Swedish song-writer and producer. He's one of those artists that takes you back into a techno time machine every time you listen to his music, and what raver doesn't love to look back on all their good times and artists they used to fawn over. Truth be told, this Swede never gets old for me, and I am excited to see his wild and outrageous stage presence that I have always loved him for. 

Tickets Still on Sale!
