1) DVBBS is playing.
If you’re over “Eat, Sleep Rave, Repeat” as your crew’s rave anthem, try this one on for size:
We were young.
We were dumb.
We would do it all again.
We will never sleep.
We will stay up with our friends.
Sound about right? I think so too. DVBBS are two dudes embodying two words — high energy. I’ve seen them spin at some of my lowest energy rave moments. I’m talking 5 a.m. day 3 of EDC 2015 and mid-day in Ensenada during Groove Cruise LA 2016. No matter my mood these two always get me to jump. They have solid lyrics backed by intense beats that get every crowd going, which is exactly why they are Crush Arizona’s can’t miss act.
2) Totems are allowed.
Any rave is an excuse for a new outfit and a new totem to match. Insomniac is one of the only event companies to embrace totems (reason 3289218 we love them so much), so get your creative juices flowing and have some thematic fun by giving your totem design some love. Just remember these guidelines so your crafty handy work makes it into the festival with you:
No more than 10 feet tall ( I suggest it be a lot less if you don’t want to get sick of carrying it around)
Made from lightweight material (foam noodles, hollow aluminum collapsible telescoping extenders: yes; PVC/metal poles: no)
Poles can be no thicker than 1 inch in diameter (*cue girth jokes*—I’m laughing too)
Any attached inflatables must remain deflated until you get inside
For you competitive types...here is a list of the Best Totems of EDC 2016.
3) We all LOVE love.
The commercialization and pressure of Valentine’s might not be your style, but who can resist a little love? Crush Arizona is the spot for simply enjoy friendships as much as it is for celebrating couples raving together staying together. It’s the no-pressure zone to celebrate V-Day in whatever way you choose, taking the standard lovey and inclusive festival feeling to a new level. It’s the season of love, after all.
4) FRW Vendor Booth.
