Bassnectar. Bassnectar. Bassnectar. Guy has been racking up the accolades like no one’s business. Most recently NPR dubbed the man, “The most inventive electronic artist since Aphex Twin.” A big and lofty statement, indeed, but whether or not that’s true or false doesn’t really much matter because either way Bassnectar is an EDM culture force to be reckoned with. Guy has sold over 100,000 tickets this year alone (not including festival dates!).
We hear that this new Bassnectar show will have him taking shit to the next level by introducing a whole new stage setup for the special night. The big man of bass has two New Years Eve nights lined up: one in Hampton, Virginia followed by a performance at Bridgestone Arena and we’re told it’s going to be a completely different set up than his current rig featured on this 27-date fall tour. The new show features the EDM champion performing on a stage in the center of the fans in the crowd which rotates 360 degrees, giving all you merrymakers the opportunity to get a great view.
Presale tickets for both events will be available through the Bassnectar fan club on October 17, starting at 9 am CST. Public tickets for Hampton shows go on sale October 19, at 9am CST and the New Years show at 10am CST.
The "Freestyle" EP will be out on October 16th
