To wrap up 2016 the day is finally upon us, Decadence Arizona is about to light up the night in Chandler, Arizona and we can’t wait to be a part of it. Featuring 3 stages and over 20 artists each night you will have to figure out which sets you can’t miss and which ones you will need to split time. Remember that just like any festival it’s a marathon and not a race to midnight, so stay hydrated, take a break for food or snacks and above all bring all the positive vibes you can. Be on the look out for the EDM Identity flag and come say hello if you see us!

Reminder To Mind Your Belongings

Unfortunately, many people have reported pickpockets, bag slashings, and theft of wallets, smartphones, purses and other valuables this year. While this small number of grinches doesn’t define an entire crowd, there are opportunistic people who come to these events to take advantage of unsuspecting party goers, and it’s important to be mindful of your valuables while at Decadence Arizona.

Pay attention to who’s around you and what’s going on around you. Keep your wallet and phone in your front pocket(s) if you can. Treat your phone the same way you would treat cash; don’t set it down on a table or bar and look away. If a friend isn’t standing behind you in a crowd, be careful of your backpack or purse, and don’t put valuables in a pocket that could easily be unzipped by someone behind in a crowded spot without you realizing.

Decadence Arizona, and festivals in general, are very densely populated and are a well-known place where pick-pocketing of unsuspecting people occurs. It’s easy to find yourself in a crowded environment in a line, crowd in the festival, elevator, or even out on the street where someone could slip your wallet or phone our of your pocket or bag in a matter of seconds. Stay alert, be careful, and make sure to not carry more than what you need!
