Relentless Beats and RBDeep’s Body Language Festival, the haven for house and techno snobs, returns after its two-year hiatus to Avondale, Arizona! This festival embraces the transcendental tempo of 120-130 beats per minute, so shuffle to your heart’s desire and  techno-snob your way through the crowd on February 16-17, 2024.

As this is the second reprisal of Body Language in Relentless Beats history, come join the juggernaut fun of experiencing underground EDM history during this poetic movement-inspired festival.  

Event and Lineup 

More than providing representation only for popular headliners, Body Language identifies as a “boutique festival experience” which seduces ravers with an intimate, yet sophisticated experience while honoring alternative forms of artistic expression in the underground scene. This is the place to stand close to Hugel at the decks but also to introduce yourself to your new underground artist as they jump off stage. 

Because Body Language evolved into its next phase of musical movement with lineup curation, this year welcomes two new stage takeovers presented by State Of Mind and Drumcode at The Mirage Stage alongside Charles D and Natalia Roth. Adding to the mix of stages of sweet rhythm, The Labyrinth Stage invites Eric Prydz, AC Slater, and OMNOM.

Meanwhile at The Abyss Stage, EMA, Christian Braun, and AVITAS are organized to demonstrate the depths of their discography. However, gates and music begin at 2pm and curfew is 11pm. Surprisingly, the only two headliners making a second appearance at Body Language are Dombresky and Walker and Royce. Other taste-breaking artists include Deadmau5, Meduza, Sofi Tukker (DJ set), and many more! Besides the three stages, The Weird and Wonderful Cast curated the new space, Cupid’s Groove featuring RESIDUO, CECE, and Safe Word. 

Take a gander at the full lineup to set your eyes and ears on a performance you’re living (and dying) to see. Single-day passes are available starting at $76, while two-day passes are priced at $150. 

Travel and Hotels

Unfortunately, ticket and hotel packages are unavailable for this event. After landing at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport (PHX) and checking into a nearby hotel, a 30-minute uber ride is required to arrive at Phoenix Raceway. Goodyear, Arizona is a neighboring city with plenty of hotels and access to ubers/rideshare. In fact, Goodyear is closer to Phoenix Raceway than Phoenix.

Arriving and exiting the event with a designated driver and vehicle is the best case scenario for transportation as parking is always free; premium parking is available. Plus, Uber rides may become too expensive at 2am or not enough drivers are able to complete your transformation request (speaking from experience).

Relentless Beats offers shuttle packages for roundtrip transportation from Downtown Tempe which is 25 minutes away from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. If absolutely necessary, it can be wise to buy a shuttle pass and request an Ubur transportation from the shuttle stop in Tempe because Tempe is a college town with many Lyft/Ubur drivers ready to bring you home! Single-day and 2-day shuttle passes range from $39-$75. 

What to Wear to Body Language

iHeartRaves’ new arrivals will always help you style the outfit hiding in your mind’s eye! With Valentine’s Day just a few days before the fest, you’ll be ready to prance around in pink hearts with Ari x iHeartRaves Love's A Mesh Pastel Rainbow Top and matching skirt. Want to express your inner cyberpunk during techno sets? The Circuit Board Long Sleeve Cutout Bodysuit and Special Agent LED Glasses can set your wires on fire! My personal favorite outfit I’d sport on the dance floor is the Eternal Sleep Halter Top and Eternal Sleep Skirt because of its detailed ribbons and classic black color perfect for anyone!

Can I get a moment of silence (or blasting basslines) for official Body Language after-parties? As a returning lover of Body Language, the official after-parties truly keep the party pumping as it is the main attraction to dance in all flavors of house and techno for 24+ hours! If you think ending your night at 11pm is too early, the after-parties have your name written all over them because official Relentless Beats after-parties usually end from 3am-6am. 

The lineup for day 1 and day 2 after-parties have not been announced just yet, but entry is currently $25. Secure your full nights of non-stop dancing and buy your passes here before prices increase or sell-out!
