Decadence, one of the world's biggest New Year's Eve music festivals, returns to Denver, Colorado, on December 30 and 31 to celebrate the arrival of 2023. Decadence has been blasting beats since 2012 and has since grown into one of the largest New Years' celebrations worldwide. The two-day festival hosted by Global Dance is held at the Colorado Convention Center in Downtown Denver. Doors open to ticket holders at 6:30 pm both nights and the venue is open for ravers to dance to their heart's content until 3:00 am.
This year’s lineup for Decadence blew away my expectations as it contains a wide variety of EDM genres and has some of the biggest names in the industry, headlining the event. Artists like Chris Lake and Porter Robinson will bring a blast of euphoric house to make everyone groove and smile, while artists Zeds Dead and Zomboy will hypnotize fans into a bass-filled trance, while Big Wild and Griz will bring the groove. Check out the lineup below:
Aside from a plethora of exquisite live music sets, Decadence also includes other activities to fill your New Years with joy. The 18+ festival has bars available for those who are 21 and up throughout the venue. The highly requested return of the silent disco has also been implemented and festival-goers will have the option to put on headphones and jam out with their friends to a station of their choice. Beautiful interactive art exhibits and colorful lights have been a super cool part of Decadence in the past as well, as there is always something new to explore throughout the venue.
Raves and music festivals are my favorite things in the world because I get to meet countless beautiful people, create new connections with friends, and make memories that will last a lifetime. New Year’s is also something that I thoroughly enjoy, as it is a time to be with people you love and celebrate a new beginning of positivity. Combining these wonderful events in my life into one celebration at Decadence is thrilling and I can not wait to hit the dance floor with everyone’s happy faces. If you do not have any New Year’s plans and would like to join me in spreading PLUR into 2023, Decadance still has single and two-day passes available. VIP tickets are also available and include separate and quicker entrances to the festival, elevated decks for viewing, as well as lounges and private bars throughout the venue. Get tickets here.
Decadence is going to be COLD. Luckily, there are some brand new warm pieces to shop from at iHeartRaves. I recommend a jacket, joggers or long chaps to keep you warm in the cold weather but still able to hit the dancefloor and heat things up without overdoing it.
The return of music festivals after the pandemic has been beautiful, and seeing people reconnect with the music they love makes me so happy. I am so excited to be back at Decadence and I hope everyone has a happy holiday season and a safe New Year's whether you are at Decadence or watching the ball drop from home.
