As Summer is in full swing, it’s worth remembering the amazing festivals that brought us the Spring season. Wet Electric in Tempe, Arizona was the place to be this past April. Celebrating their 10th anniversary, they brought their A-game as well as some legendary artists. Wet Electric took place on Saturday, April 27th at Big Surf Waterpark. As the country’s largest waterpark music festival, they definitely brought the seismic vibrations to the forefront.
The artists that dominated the stages were What So Not, Benny Benassi, Rl Grime, Bonnie x Clyde, Will Clarke, and more. Out of all the years, this year brought the most eclectic group. You could pretend to be at any genre of festival that you please. The reason fans were instantly flocked to this lineup is that these artists don’t come around too often; and whenever they do, you wanna catch them. For example. Rl Grime is someone that Millenials spent lots of time listening to in their high school days. As he doesn’t perform too often, it was so incredible to be able to hear his old sounds again. His set focused on many of his beginning songs such as his Mercy Remix with Salva. The banger that got everyone splashing with his Love Sosa Remix.
Will Clarke was someone that I was particularly anxious to see. As I’ve followed his rapid progression on Soundcloud, he’s so current in today’s EDM scene and his bass house and trancy sound proved to be perfect for the sun. Check out his music by clicking here.
In my opinion, VIP was the way to go. Aside from the 2.5 million gallon wave pool which is the largest in the country, the amenities surely didn’t disappoint. If you had VIP, you were treated to a private section filled with a bar that offered jello shots in syringes. What more could you ask for? Concert-goers had the opportunity to chill out on bean bags as drops of water from the three waterslides above trickled down. If you really paid extra, attendees were able to rent out cabanas for an even bigger fiesta. No VIP? No worries. All guests could be knee-deep in the wavepool as they get up close and personal with the DJ playing. This was the perfect thing as Arizona brought the heat and sunburns.
