The music factory of PHAT Entertainment marks its 10-year anniversary by thumping and bumping downtown Tucson with a two-day celebration of elephantine beats and contagious dance music. More than 30 performers fill two kaleidoscopic stages and one seemingly boundless clown car. The first day of PHATFest takes over the Hotel Congress, infusing both the outside stage and Club Congress’ innards with a pulsating soundtrack. Friday night's line-up features a dozen specialists in electronic euphoria, including the Arizona debut of mixologist duo Run DMT, licensed knob-twiddler DJ mLe, and the first Tucson appearance of Parisian bass-blasters Dirtyphonics, who have played some of the biggest festivals and most intimate PTA meetings in the world.
