When a new festical comes to town, you can feel the excitement in the air, especially when it brings some excellent talent. This is the case for the newly announced Phoenix Lights Festival happening March 22nd. After announcing Hardwell would headline the event, the festival announced earlier this week that he would be joined by Robin Schulz, Route 94 and Lane 8 for the event. Talk about a lineup! Thess rockstar acts will be lighting up downtown Phoenix at Civic Space Park, located right across the street from the Arizona State Downtown Campus. Phoenix Lights Festival On top of these 4 artists, more will be announced soon as the festival will fill several stages with some of the world’s best DJs. At this event, music won’t be the only art on display. Over 30 local artists will be attending the event along with a live light themed installation by Isaac Caruso. I am always excited about festivals bringing in live artists to create works of art as the musicians strut their stuff. With artists like Isaac in attendance, Phoenix Lights is sure to have plenty of sights to behold other than the scantily-clad attendees. Isaac Caruso Artwork When hearing that the festival would host big name artists, my first thought was how much tickets would cost. My thoughts were around $150 to $200, but boy was I wrong. Right now, tickets are starting at $55. Yes you heard that right, $55! They will be raising ticket prices soon to $65 but still, this is a great deal to see some of the best DJ’s in the world at this moment. That’s a steal. VIP tickets are available for only $99 which includes priority access to preview and after parties, express entry, VIP lanyards along with a private bar and restroom. If you’re looking to splurge on a truly magical experience, they are offering the TrueVIP “Lights Out” package for $1500, which includes your own security, access to meet and greets of artists, car service to and from the event, concierge service along with luxury side stage suites. Yes, you can walk around the event with your own security looking and feeling like you’re the president of the world. You can purchase tickets now at their website, along with following all the latest news of the event through their Twitter and Facebook pages. Who said Phoenix doesn’t know how to rave? Have any spring break plans yet? This may be your answer.
