Going into Phoenix Lights, I had no idea what to expect. As a fairly small second-year festival in a brand new location, in a city I had never even visited prior to that weekend, it was completely unmarked territory for me. All I knew was that the weather was going to be perfect and the lineup was killer, and that's all the convincing I needed. As it turns out, there was way more to be excited about than sunshine and headliners. This extra-terrestrial-themed party known as Phoenix Lights turned out to be an out-of-this-world rave in the heart of the city.
