Attention ravers! A legendary event is upon us: a stacked lineup (featuring legendary back-to-back sets), an old-country western theme (yeehaw!), DJ competitions and a new, larger-than-life stage production is about to take over the Rawhide Event Center in Chandler, Arizona this September 24th through 26th, 2021. Thanks to our good friends over at Relentless Beats, we have the initial lineup announcement for Goldrush 2021 that has any EDM-goer floored as is, but teasing of lineup additions has us wondering how it could get any better than this…?
Get your boots and hats on — it’s time for Goldrush Music Festival 2021!
The legends are out to play! One thing that we’ve really enjoyed seeing in the return of live music is seeing all the artists come out at once. First on the alphabetized bill is Above & Beyond — ACTUAL trance legends. Representing the trance and techno train with Above & Beyond is Devault and Vintage Culture for your brains electric enjoyment. In our popular dance music category is more household EDM names: Diplo, along with other dance music majors Illenium and Zedd. Speaking of house.. ohhh, boy the house… various categories are represented for any shuffler’s delight. ATLiens, Autograf, Camelphat, Dombresky, Ekonovah, Gorgon City, Green Velvet, Jame Hype, Jauz, Jessica Audiffred, Kyle Walker, Noizu, Omnom, Player Dave, Sidepiece and Tynan are all slated to play over the three-day weekend, bringing you deep bass, classic, funky, progressive, tech and many other kinds of house in between! In addition, we are graced with Chris Lorenzo and Wax Motif, performing a house back-to-back set. And, these are just some of the EDM artists thus far… we haven’t even gotten to our dubstep family, yet!
The dubstep scene is well represented, with its own share of heavyweight talent scheduled to perform at Goldrush. We have the wonderful deep world bass from CloZee to transport us to bass-fueled grooves, while, perhaps, being transported to a forest. Some grimier dubstep options include many great names like Cray, Decimate, Getter, Kayzo, KillTheNoise, LSDream, NGHTMRE, PhaseOne, SVDDENDEATH, Trampa, Troyboi and Virtual Riot. Yeah, Relentless Beats pretty much went off on this phase-one lineup (there’s MORE coming!!!). Finally, coming in hot with an incredible back-to-back set never-before-seen from Zedds Dead and Griz will potentially be the most iconic set to take place in the history of dubstep sets. From experience, we know that these guys tend to take their performances to a face-melting next level flying solo… so, I can’t even fathom what will come of this set! You’ll just have to be there! You will NOT want to miss history in the making of this never-before-witnessed b2b set!
Tickets are on sale now for this wild, wild west-themed three-day festival, so make sure to get them before the prices increase! With your old country-western attire in mind, don’t forget your clear bags, as with Rawhide’s policy (with exception of water camelback) and up to two sealed water bottles to stay hydrated! Can’t wait to catch ya’ll at Rawhide this September! Yeehaw!
