As the EDM community has been in a drought of live shows because of social distancing standards, a group of DJs and festival creators have brainstormed to create drive-in raves across the country to provide us with a way to enjoy the music and culture we love in a safe way. Road Rave, presented by Relentless Beats out of Arizona, is the first drive in rave to hit the west coast. Road Rave is changing the face of the rave scene during these times, and I’ve gathered some general information on the festival so you can prepare to headbang over your steering wheel and have all the facts on the up and coming show!
Here's everything you need to know about Road Rave Arizona:
When is Road Rave Arizona?
Road Rave will be held on Friday, May 29th & Saturday, May 30, 2020 from 7-11pm. Although the event was originally only scheduled for one night, after selling out the Saturday show, Relentless beats added a second night on Friday May 29th!
Where is Road Rave Arizona?
Wild Horse Motorsports Park - Chandler, AZ
What is the Road Rave Arizona Lineup?
Headlining Road Rave is Carnage, who will bring a wide variety of EDM with dubstep, trap, and hip hop incorporations, and will put on a killer show. Hulk Gang, SAYMYNAME, Dr. Fresch, Bijou, and Paz will also be playing, making for a diverse four-hour show.
The Friday night lineup is TBD - but will feature Carnage and friends again. Stay tuned for more information!
How Much are Road Rave Tickets?
Ticket prices vary based on where you want to park your car in the venue and how many people are in a car. Currently, car passes for 1-2 people as well as 3-5 people in the front, middle, and back lots are sold out, but there are still opportunities to grab tickets for a 6-8 person vehicle in each lot.
Important Things to Remember:
1. Don't forget your mask! Masks are heavily encouraged to be worn at all times in order to keep others safe!
Shop Face Masks
2. Social Distancing is important! Social distancing will be enforced with strict guidelines and restrictions on when attendees are allowed to safely leave their vehicles. Concessions will be available to order online with direct delivery to each vehicle.
3. Rideshare vehicles and busses are not permitted at this time, so plan accordingly!
4. And lastly, remember to have FUN! Although trading kandi and dancing with strangers will not be possible to do at Road Rave because of social distancing, there are lots of other ways to make your drive in rave experience super fun! Whether you decorate your windows with car chalk and glow sticks, hold totems out your windows, or wave your hands through your sunroof, there is always a way to spread PLUR!
I will be attending Road Rave with five of my friends and I can’t wait as the last show I saw was Liquid Stranger back in March and I’m having withdrawals from raving. This is also a historical moment in the music festival scene and I’m so excited to be a part of it. I’m a week away from getting to braid my hair, put on my face gems and leg wraps, and giving those I love light shows, and nothing makes me happier than getting back to the environment I love most!

In addition to this one-of-a-kind experience, Carnage is going to donate a portion of the proceeds from the event, and his forthcoming documentary to the ANF COVID-19 Relief Fund, which provides assistance to vulnerable communities in Nicaragua during the coronavirus outbreak. Just by attending Road Rave, you'll be helping others - how cool is that?!
