DENVER RESIDENTS MISTAKE BASSNECTAR FESTIVAL FOR EARTHQUAKE

News reporter demonstrates by standing next to loud car stereo...

All hell broke loose in Denver on Saturday night! Or at least that's what some of the residents of Commerce City, a suburb of the Colorado capital, would have you believe... 

In reality, the disturbance was caused by Bassnectar and his well... bass. The US producer put on his first two day festival at Dick's Sporting Goods Arena (we know it's childish but don't pretend you didn't chuckle at that one too), and citizens weren't too pleased, reportedly feeling the vibrations up to five miles away.

Local news station CBS4 Denver were straight on the case however, speaking to various disgruntled folk, one of whom claimed he thought the noise was "an earthquake", and another who said: "This was not a friendly event." To demonstrate the sheer horror of the event, CBS4's field reporter set up possibly the cheapest reinactment in news history, standing next to a car with a loud stereo whilst attempting to talk to the camera. 

Now don't get us wrong, we understand that people need to sleep, and not everybody likes big, bass-driven music. But as frequenters of many a city festival, we also can't help feeling there might be a spot of 'Old Man Yells At Cloud' syndrome going around in Denver. Check out the news report below.
