Bassnectar Announces the Highly-Anticipated Bass Center
Ending weeks of speculation and grueling anticipation by his fans, Bassnectar has officially announced Bass Center; the inaugural 2-day event curated by the man himself, Lorin Ashton.
Bass Center is a multi-day, immersive, camping festival that many bassheads have been clamoring for. Even going so far as to petition Ashton in 2015 requesting him to specifically create a camping festival with Bassnectar as the epicenter; and he delivered.
The festival will be held in Commerce City, CO at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park from July 29-30, 2016. This will, no doubt, be the most anticipated and talked-about event of the summer by bassheads nationwide as it is the first time ever that Bassnectar has played a festival (that he himself curated) for two nights, back-to-back.
Bass Center is a special experience spanning two days with limited camping, featuring the most expansive line-up for the event to date, including two extended Bassnectar sets. The packed lineup includes Flux Pavilion, Wu-Tang Clan, Flying Lotus, Porter Robinson, Lupe Fiasco, AlunaGeorge, Minnesota, G Jones, Dabin and Thriftworks. Music inside the stadium is only the beginning. Camping villages located outside on the event grounds will provide fans on-site pirate radio facilities, curated food trucks and more.
The event was first teased through two limited-run releases of Bassnectar Chocolate bars. Hidden inside 5 bars in each run were Golden Tickets, each granting the holder two VIP full-weekend passes (plus camping) to Bass Center 2016.
On top of performing every night, Ashton will not be limited by sound constraints, allowing fans to delve into the optimum viewing experience that he so desires to give – but often cannot – due to restrictions from external forces. Bass Center is replacing his annual Red Rocks shows, as he will not be returning to the amphitheater in 2016.
The previous Bass Center was held at NYC’s Madison Square Garden in 2014, but it was just a one-night event. What makes this year different is the location and the extended dates. The promise of it being a completely immersive camping festival captured the attention of every single fan because, let’s face it, we can never get enough of his amorphous, mesmerizing music.
Pre-sales will begin on Wednesday, January 13 at 10:00 a.m. MT with a full public on-sale starting Friday, January 15 at 10:00 a.m. MT. General Admission tickets will be available as single or 2-day passes for either field or stadium seating, with prices starting at $45. VIP field tickets are also available.
Bassnectar will once again partner with CID Entertainment to offer Premium VIP Experiences, Travel Packages (including admission, hotel stay and shuttle transportation) and various tent rental options equipped with bedding, furniture and more for attendees.
So pack your bags and get ready to travel from miles around, because this promises to be one of the most-talked about, “you just had to be there” bass event of the summer.
