You can’t win the title of “America’s biggest New Year’s celebration” without putting on a seriously spectacular show. Happening in three cities simultaneously, Decadence NYE is a final and epic hurrah to a year’s worth of amazing music and insane festivals.
In 2011, event production company Global Dance set out to create the wildest New Year’s Eve party Denver had ever seen. Thousands of dance music fans descended upon the Colorado Convention Center to ring in 2012 with a bang. With artists like Flux Pavilion, Feed Me, and Bad Boy Bill; costumed performers on stilts and on stage; and a year-end countdown like no other, this festival aims to become the premier New Year’s event for electronic music fans across the country.
These days, Decadence is a collaboration between event producing giants AEG and Live Nation, along with the founding party Global Dance. With events now taking place in Colorado, Arizona, and Utah as well, partiers from all over the country can gather to dance in the New Year with the help of their favorite headliners and the incredible visual production always guaranteed by a collaboration this big.
Decadent in Every Aspect
Decadence is aptly named, because it is exactly that: decadent. Because why not end the year with a bang? Over-the-top stage design featuring an incredible display of LEDs and lasers give attendees the kind of jaw-dropping visual experience one would expect to find at this celebration in the name of self indulgence. Aerial artists swing above, as costume-clad performers roam the stages and the crowds to suck you into the world that is Decadence.
Paired with the extravagant decorations and light installations, this festival will transport you to the world of tomorrow – that is, the new year ahead. With a soundtrack provided by the headliners of the night, attendees countdown the seconds to official end of the year. When the clock strikes midnight, smoke and confetti will fill the air, balloons will drop, and a crowd full of festies welcome in a whole new year in a unified state of euphoria.
During the festival, be sure to check out some of the other activities as well. The silent disco offers fans a more intimate experience than the madness at the mainstage. If you need a break from dancing, try taking the festival carousel for a spin.
A Deluxe Lineup
One of the things that makes Decadence one of the biggest electronic festivals of the year is its commitment to bringing amazing lineups year after year. In the past, festival-goers have been blessed with sets from fan favorites like deadmau5, Zedd, Disclosure, Armin Van Buuren, Bassnectar, Wolfgang Gartner, Excision, Big Gigantic, Odesza, Porter Robinson, Pretty Lights, Diplo, Hardwell, and Kaskade.
While bringing some of the biggest names in Electronic Dance Music (EDM), Decadence manages to create an experience that includes all dance music fans by offering a selection of diverse genres. Fans of house, trance, bass, and all the other genres will find their favorite headliners represented on lineups at Decadence events.
