Local EDM event promoter Relentless Beats has announced the first wave of DJs for this year’s Decadence Arizona, the two-night EDM festival and New Year’s Eve party that takes place during the final two evenings of the year.
As such, the 2017 version of Decadence Arizona will happen on Saturday, December 30, and Sunday, December 31, at Rawhide in Chandler.
And now we know who will be performing at the event.
According to Relentless Beats, which co-produces Decadence along with Colorado-based EDM promoter Global Dance, the 2017 lineup currently includes French house/nu-disco duo Justice, legendary trance DJ/producer Armin van Buuren, and masked electro/dubstep trio Black Tiger Sex Machine.
Other DJs and EDM artists who have been announced thus far for the event include Australian-born hip-hop/trap producer What So Not, electronic music duo Louis the Child, and house/electro guru Destructo.

Further details and other artist announcements in regards to this year’s Decadence Arizona are still forthcoming. Last year’s event was certainly a lively affair, which featured a slew of carnival rides for attendees.
Here’s hoping that those make a return for this year’s event.
