There’s no better way to kick off our scorching Arizona summer with an event coined as “America’s Largest Pool Party.”
It’s known as Wet Electric, and it has evolved the pool party into something utterly unforgettable. This year the event will be bigger and better than ever, with some of the most renowned names in EDM, including Tiesto, Dillion Francis, Tommy Trash and dozens more.
It all begins Saturday, April 25 at 12 p.m. at Big Surf Waterpark in Scottsdale. Pacing yourself is important, though. This event lasts until 9 p.m. and it goes for two full days!
Wet Electric is expected to have 15,000 to 20,000 wet, wild bodies, so plan ahead if you want to party in luxury. Sort out your action plan for cabanas, water park full rides, and your position to see the main stage, which is actually going to float. Yes, float! Last year everyone partied in the wave pool. This year, the stage will be directly in the middle of it!
The event has only grown in size since its kick-off four years ago. It brings an entire new element to the electronic scene. It basically turns any given weekend into a local spring break for whatever destination it is held at, packed with gorgeous, fit, affluent people, all half-naked prepared for an all day and night party. The energy is everywhere. Instead of feeling the bass move through the air, you feel the bass ripple through the water.
The show starts early enough to get an amazing tan and frolic in the pool for hours, but goes late enough to enjoy the shows headliners under the stars in a more intimate manner. There will be other stages to choose from, plus a swim-up bar, so you won’t even have to get out of the pool to grab a drink! If all of this isn’t enough to entice you, they have a zipline that goes over the wave pool and fireworks to cap it all off!
So prepare yourself for one crazy weekend. With tickets at over $150 for two-day passes, it’s advised that you to purchase them ASAP.
