After touring America last year playing to stadiums of fuzzed up bass heads, the big drop dubstep ground shaker Bassnectar is heading out again to melt faces from April 12 – June 16. This time around, however, Bassnectar will be delivering his monster sounds in more intimate surrounds, stopping at a few select festivals, including Ultra Miami and Coachella, before hitting a string of venues from mid-April. Joining him for the ride are special guests GRiZ, Michal Menert and Thriftworks.
The breathtaking drops and mind-warping bass wobbles will be matched by Bassnectar's unmistakable mind-altering visual show, which will totally transform the packed venues along the way. Just because these parties are small, it doesn't mean that Bassnectar or any of his team are cutting back on production. Big things come in small packages. Full details below.
