Hello I have a custom post type event and i have two custom fields:

  1. event_date
  2. event_type

I want to display all my events which has event_type = Featured and sorting should be by event_date in DESC order..

I have searched everywhere on SOF but unable to find any working solution.. Here is my code right now

$events = new WP_Query(
                                'post_type' => 'event',
                                'post_status' => 'publish',
                                'meta_key' => 'event_type',
                                'meta_value' => 'featured',
                                'posts_per_page' => -1,
                                'orderby' => 'event_date',
                                'order' => 'DESC'

Please change your args like this.

$meta_query = array(
        'key' => 'event_type',
        'value' => 'featured',
        'compare' => '='

$args = array(
    'post_type' => 'event',
    'posts_per_page' => -1,
    'order' => 'DESC',
    'orderby' => 'meta_value_num',
    'meta_key' => 'event_date',
    'meta_query' => $meta_query
