Last year’s 10th anniversary set the bar high for the future of this February festival, and Relentless Beats worked hard to make sure this year measured up. Crush 2020 did not disappoint.
As usual for AZ events, stage production was masterfully done. Massive heart shaped structures paired with a generous helping of lasers ensured that whether you were falling in love in the back or raging in the front, you had a great view of the show.
Every artist brought their A-game, throwing down their best. From Dark Mark opening up and setting the vibe, to Jauz bringing the heat with Arizona’s own Ghastly making a surprise appearance, the energy was through the roof. Teases of new tracks were interspersed with well known hits, keeping the crowd on their toes and excited for what would come next. Outside at the silent disco, two artists at a time competed for the crowd while patrons danced away the cold to different beats. Crush 2020 shows us that AZ is still a dominant force at the forefront of the EDM scene. If you’re heartbroken over not being able to attend this year, don’t worry, next year you’ll know exactly where to take your CRUSH.
