Occurring annually for more than 85 years. The golf pros and fans love the WM. The Thunderbirds do an amazing job of organizing the event and keeping things above standard.

Birds Nest is always filled with the best entertainment and performers. The venue is 48,000 sq ft. The event is packed with good vibes and fun featuring live music, entertainment, food, drinks, games, and more. The event is sponsored by the Thunderbirds and they make it an event in the valley that you don’t want to miss! Special thank you to Ryan Woodcock for organizing our media coverage and helping make the Waste Management and Birds Nest event so unforgettable for everyone in attendance. We the Deluxe Version Magazine team are so grateful to have them host us in promoting the incredible event that is Waste Management Open and Birds Nest Phoenix.


The Birds Nest phx always has the best lineups from The Goo Goo Dolls in 2012, Kid Rock in 2015, and Machine Gun Kelly with Jaden Hossler, Dustin Lynch, Jason Aldean, Lainey Wilson, and the Chainsmokers in 2023. Machine Gun Kelly had an absolutely killer performance, where he played his hit songs such as “My Ex’s Best Friend” and “Bloody Valentine”. MGK even had celebrity guests watching his show like A-Rod, Dustin Lynch, and Marc Jacobs. Machine Gun Kelly is a complete rockstar with a heart of gold. Having personally attended Birds Nest in both 2023 and 2024, we have to say that it is a jam-packed fun event with a cool music festival atmosphere.



Bailey Zimmerman, Hardy, and Mike took the stage and the fans loved it! They did amazing. Bailey Zimmerman is pictured with Aly and MaryElizabeth wearing his Rockin Street Wear trucker hat. We got to spend some time with Bailey Zimmerman and we just have to say that he is a force to be reckoned with! Bailey has such an immense talent and ability to captivate the audience with his undeniable vocal range and capabilities. Bailey is so versatile he can dance and rock out around the whole stage and hype thousands in the crowd, but also tones things down, and peels back the layers with his vulnerable lyrics. It’s safe to say that Zimmerman wowed the audience and gave an incredible performance. Not only is Zimmerman a one-of-a-kind artist, But he is also a great guy. While talking with him it was refreshing to see how grounded and humble he is. Our favorite part about Bailey Zimmerman was his faith, to be able to speak to massive crowds about the goodness of God and how he has blessed Bailey’s life is amazing. Bailey Zimmerman truly deserves all of the recognition, awards, and milestones on his music journey that he has received, but we can’t wait to watch him grow even more! You can listen to his music on all streaming platforms or see him on “Religiously The Tour” now!
