can’t help but look at the lineup we have and feel like we are building
something massive for our fans,“ says Relentless Beats founder Thomas

about for a long time to come.”
The multi-stage festival will be held at Margaret T. Hance Park, an urban setting in Downtown Phoenix. The
32-acre park located on the “deck” over the Interstate Highway 10
Papago Freeway Tunnel, between 5th Ave. and 3rd Street, is the home of
the Japanese Friendship Garden, Irish Cultural Center, McClelland Irish
Library, Phoenix Center for the Arts, and Burton Barr Central Library.
