Crush Arizona 2018 Set Times, Festival Map, & More!


Crush Arizona is coming up this weekend and we are definitely ready to celebrate love with this Valentine’s Day rave. Returning to the Rawhide Event Center, this single day event will feature both the wubs and the feels, the perfect combination for single pringles and couples alike.

EDM is built on a platform that embraces love, and on this day especially, that theme shines. I took a couple of friends to last year’s Crush Arizona event for their first time, and it was an eye-opening experience for them. With artists like Carnage, Getter, and Grand Theft on the lineup you know it will be a party, and Kaskade will close out the night with all the feels. So dress up, wear your kandi, and spread the love!

Be sure to open your heart to our playlist for Crush ahead of the event!

Reminder To Mind Your Belongings

Unfortunately, many people have reported pickpockets, bag slashings, and theft of wallets, smartphones, purses and other valuables during this festival season. While this small number of bad apples in the bunch doesn’t define an entire crowd, there are opportunistic people who come to these events to take advantage of unsuspecting partygoers and it’s important to be mindful of your valuables while at Crush 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.
