Typically, New Year’s Eve means one of a few options- working, a house party with cheap champagne, or piling into a car with a couple friends for a night of bar hopping and clubbing. Luckily for EDM fans, just as the scene continues to grow so does the spectrum of NYE possibilities ranging from epic club performances to multi-day festivals. Regardless if 2013 was your first year in the electronic dance community or whether you’ve been a fan for years, why not spend the final 48 hours of the year at Decadance – Colorado’s largest New Year’s Eve celebration.
Entering its third year of production, Decadence once again takes over downtown Denver’s Colorado Convention Center to give music fans 18 and over their chance to ring in 2014 with two days of the nation’s most talented electronic artists. Over 12,000 EDM fans descended upon downtown Denver last year, shattering the record for Colorado’s largest music festival.  Past acts to grace the Decadence stage have included Krewella, ATB, Flux Pavilion, Zeds Dead, Flosstradamus, Wolfgang Gartner, Feed Me, and Cookie Monsta. Decadence has maintained a strong tradition over the past two years of bringing together some of the biggest acts in EDM and their fans to create an unforgettable and positive end and new beginning to one’s year.
Starting December 30th, Decadance will take over the 600,000 square foot exhibition space of the Colorado Convention with two massive dance hall stages.  Day one will include the talents of Bassnectar, Tiësto, Triad Dragons, Break Science, and Dada Life (among others),while day two will feature Pretty Lights, 12th Planet, Above & Beyond, Ecotek, with more and more artists being added to the lineup.

By high school, he organized his area’s first electronic event. While this proved to be a disaster, he wrote a killer college acceptance letter about it - thus a music journalist was born. Today he continues to document from behind the keyboard. When he’s not searching for the perfect emoji or making festival posters/totems, he enjoys long walks into parallel universes, pulling off shameless dance moves, and leading the fight against kids from CT who feel wearing cowboy hats is okay.
