The Valley’s electronic dance scene has had a longtime love affair with the Crush Arizona festival, and it stretches back more than a decade. Back in 2008, the now-annual EDM extravaganza began life as an underground dance party at a local warehouse venue that was attended by more than a 1,000 people.
Local EDM fans also have a special place in their hearts for Crush Arizona, as evidenced by the fact that thousands of them flock to Rawhide each year for the event, including many dressed in love-themed costumes like cupid or pink and red get-ups.
General admission tickets start at 96$ according to ticket provider StubHub.
