This year’s annual Wet Electric festival, presented by Relentless Beats, came and conquered this past weekend in Tempe, Arizona. Located at Big Surf Water Park, this event drew in a huge crowd of excited festivalgoers ready to hear some of EDM’s biggest artists.
This splash-tastic event is said to be the largest pool party in North America, and is filled with a 2.5 million gallon wave pool, huge slides with free inner tubes, syringe-filled Jell-O shots and two or three bars with the best tropical cocktails you could think of. The VIP section was simply the cherry on top. Set up like a fancy Hawaiian resort, there were cabanas lined up and roughly 50 beanbags laying on the grass to catch some Z’s, or just to get out of the beating sun.
All of the perks of the show couldn’t have been successful without the incredible artists performing. The day started with a little bit of thumpin’ house from Gerry Gonza and Wax Motif, but as the sun started to set Anna Lunoe, Borgore, and Diplo took the stage as the crowd continued to grow by the hour.
We cannot wait to attend next year’s Wet Electric as this rave should be on everyone’s to-do list! You can check out our official Spotify playlist for Wet Electric below.
