Summer Preview: Relentless Beats packs EDM calendar with massive season lineups
Live entertainment is back in action with a packed summer season after a year away. Arizona’s own Relentless Beats pioneered an extensive series of pod concerts through the end of 2020 into early 2021 and now they’re ready to resume a wild concert schedule.
The party kicked off this past Memorial Day weekend with Under Construction, a two-day Fisher b2b Chris Lake extravaganza. Fans turned out in droves for the first non-pod event in over a year and the vibes to begin the summer with a bang were immaculate.
Relentless is only getting started, though, as EDM powerhouse Deadmau5 rolls through on June 4 for a special set at Rawhide Event Center. He’ll be supported by a killer lineup that includes Spencer Brown, Nero, Lamorn and Speaker Honey for what’s sure to be one of the hottest tickets of the season. The very next night, things are Back to Business with Tiesto, Dillon Francis, Loud Luxury and more- another show that’s absolutely not to be missed.
June rounds out with another double header- Excision returns to the Valley for two nights of insanity, bringing along Sullivan King, Wooli, Svdden Death and so much more on June 18 and 19.
With the heat of July comes an equally scorching lineup, starting with heavy bass alien Rezz headlining her own AREZZONA event on July 3rd with support from G Jones, CharlesTheFirst, Of The Tree, and Youms. Third time’s a charm with this show after multiple instances of pandemic-related rescheduling.
The following week on the 10th, Deadbeats Arizona featuring tastemaker duo Zeds Dead is absolutely stacked. Support from Subtronics, Rusko, Dirt Monkey, Lick, Level Up, and Chiief will guarantee an all-night dance party and droves of fans eager to see a Relentless Beats favorite.
Finally, Louis the Child’s Euphoria tour, another gig that’s been in the works for over a year, rounds out the month when it graces Arizona on July 24th. Dreamy beats will be the name of the game with support from Jai Wolf, K.Flay, and ilo ilo, plus a playground set from Louis the Child.
