Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two general-admission tickets to N9NE Fest on Friday, September 9, at Kino Sports Complex (up to a $50 value). Gates open at 6:30 p.m.
N9NE Fest immerses guests in a sensory celebration of electronica, hip-hop, and rock with a musical lineup that includes crunk connoisseur Lil Jon, high-energy dubstep artisan Rusko, and otherworldly electro-technician DJ Eye. More than 7,000 festivaliens will soak their groove things in clouds of foam fired into the air from giant cannons while being serenaded by 11 artists performing on two stages. Two enormous water slides will also be on hand, signifying the historical bond between pop music and Newtonian physics, and towers on each side of the stage will illuminate the proceedings with a syncopated light show. Foam-fatigued revelers can refuel courtesy of beer and food vendors, and shuttle buses are available to escort festival-goers to and from the park.
Thanks to an expansive layout stretching across the Tucson Electric Park field, patrons who prefer to stay dry may find solace in areas free from the foam and slides. However, since N9NE Fest plans to proceed rain or shine, the moisture-averse should consult weather charts, almanacs, and atmospheric prophets before stepping outside.
