  • basshead

    please please please do an aftershow!!!

    • CStaff

      Seriously….What he said….SERIOUSLY

    • shastalee

      PLEASE! an after show would be great 🙂

  • Shasta Lee

    Lorin, idk if you've been to north coast in the past or not but you're guna love it. my best friend won tickets to this festival last year when neither of us had heard of it before. Saw future rock, small fest but packed with great vibes and i remember thinking that Bassnectar belonged at a festival of this kind. so happy it's finally announced, see ya there =]

    • North Coast last year was an amazing first year for the festival. I couldn’t agree more than when i saw the disco biscuits at the coast stage..crowd being squeezed with glowing trees and beautiful vibes…that this is where BASSNECTAR needs to be next year! I am so jitterbugged over this under-rated festi. An after show would make up for what a long break its been for Chicago to drown in that delicious nectar! Unless BASSCENTER3 is griddling your mind for ze fall 🙂 we got hella messy over the Aragon on hallowomp. Much Love to the basscrew that makes life even more beautiful:)

  • Madison hatter

    You’re skipping burning man?

    Madison hatter

  • Shasta Lee

    When will the exact day of this be announced? 
    I’m planning on buying a one day pass 
    for bassnectar.  

    • Dunwody

      Not sure yet, Let me see if i can get someone at the festival to answer this question for us.

      • Shasta Lee

         Thanks

      • Shasta Lee

        any word?

  • dusty

     we missed you for sunday sunrise last year and hope that is not case this year…. hope to see you out in the dust…

  • Shasta Lee

    fuck yeah, sts9 big gigantic lotus future rock and BASSNECTAR.
    northcoast got it right this year.

  • Nitsud028

    Any idea on how many tickets are still available???
    I’m broke right now and do not want to miss this!

    • Shasta Lee

      right now tickets ar $40 a day and $95 for the weekend pass.
      on the NorthCoast website it says that the three day pass price
      will be going up sometime in June.  I don’t know which you plan on
      getting but with tickets and concerts it’s *always* better to
      get it as soon as you can.  Last year I don’t remember the individual
      day passes going up at all, so if you only wanted to go see bassnectar
      i’m ALMOST positive they will still be forty.
      in terms of selling out, it didn’t last year, but that was the first year
      there were even a lot of free tickets given away (how i got mine), so
      i don’t think it was even close to selling out.
      but with this fest it’s hard to tell because it blew up last summer
      and came back this year with a KILLER hard hitting line up
      (SO THANKFUL BASSNECTAR IS INCLUDED IN IT). I’d say
      you’ll probably be good to buy tickets at least into early august.
      good luck, hope you make it!

  • Big G

     Lorin

    You da mannn..So the last time I was in the windy city was Hallowomp and ya murdered it…any chance you could remix Metallica’s Fade to Black for this show…since you’re headlining and all it would be killer…and Nashvillllle wants you BACKKKK!!!!! You know what I’m saying!!!

    • Shasta Lee

      Hey Big G
      put your Metallica request in the request line
      http://www.bassnectar.net/requestline/
      🙂

      • Big G

        Ha I did!! But oh myyy if he mixed that in with Nirvana In Bloom I think the USGS will record something majorrr 🙂

  • Nitsud028

    got my tix!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    after party??????????

  • Anonymous

    I think everyone could agree that you, Lorin, need to do a North Coast after party. mmhmm.

    • Shasta Lee

      i second this.
      AFTERPARTY…*please!*

  • AFTER SHOW HANDS DOWN NECTAR CLOWN. NCMF won’t be the same if you didn’t break the rafters of the H.O.B again…the energy in that room for the STS9 after party was unfathomable. Love the outdoor festi scene but we all know nothing beats a sardine packed venue of bass love! 

    • Shasta Lee

      yes… afterparty!
      & i definitely agree bassnectar is at prime
      in a small indoor venue.

    • Phillip Irwin

      That Late night set at the H.O.B. last Aug was EPIC!!! not only was the drive up from south Florida Longgggg! and being alone didnt help haha! But you made that night something I wont ever forget!!! Grace us with your presence again at the HOB people would go CRAZY!!!
      🙂

  • Shasta Lee

    Northcoast just released afterparty announcements.  STS9 and Big G will be playing together at Congress on Friday! so pumped for that.  Gotta have a ticket to northcoast already to buy afterparty tix, and each person is allowed three afterparties, so hopefully bassnectar announces one NOT on friday 😉

    thought i should warn my fellow bassheads

    • THE MID needs to wrecked by the force of Bassnectar. It is intimate & freshly equipped with a bangin sounds system that bass-freak-friendly:) 
      Not to mention every show i’ve been to at The Mid, I tell bystanders that Bassnectar needs to be on that stage. Please oh PLEASE basscrew grace us with a late night!
      Hallowomp was here for a reason and I know how much you love the “BASSment rave-like venues”, & this place is likely to inspire:)
      No late nights for Summercamp & Electric Forest, the mid-west needs some nectar in & around our insominiac selves!! Most of us couldn’t make it to the EPIC show at Red Rocks & this would make us soooperweird n basshappy.LOVE & CHEERS!

      • Shasta Lee

        I LOVE THIS COMMENT LOTZ

      • Shasta Lee

        I LOVE THIS COMMENT LOTZ

  • tim fox

    Lorin i just got done submitting a few request for the North Coast show…. I was recently able to experience  the best musical performance of my life a Red Rocks thank you so much for giving that memory ill have forever it was truly life changing! When it comes to requesting songs for your set i feel like i picked some old some new but i found it really hard to pick a few that i want to hear when i know that what ever you pick is gonna be epic in its own way…i feel like you could put a 15 hour concert and by the end my ears would turn into gold, i would have pissed my pants (due to know wanting to miss a single second) and finally i would surely be using a mega roll of duck tape to put my face back together. Any ways i cant wait for the set ill be sportin my red rocks tshirt for sure and dont care how many other performers i have to miss ill be up front for the family photo boooom! I might even bring my keys just for the hell of it just so i can whip my nectar lanyard around the air like a crazed basshead. Thanks for doing how you do lorin!

    • Shasta Lee

      Where’d you get your bassnectar lanyard?

      • tim fox

        At red rocks booomm

      • tim fox

  • Shasta Lee

    i’m really anticipating this festival. & especially
    your performance there.  uber happy i’ll finally
    be able to thank you in person for everything you
    and your crew has shared with me. reppin’ all the
    gear& sharin some with fellow basshead friends.
    spreadin the love

    can’t wait!!!

    • Bhaley

      Thank him in person? Does he have some sort of meet and greet set up for this show?

      • Shasta Lee

        no…that’d be sweeeeet
        but he usually comes down and signs shit aftera .show. but now that i think about it i’m not sure if it’s the same way at festivals. but i know indoorvenue shows afterwards he almost always signsshyt for people. i was gunna catch him then.

        anyone know if he does this for fests? i never
        stuck around after one to see if he was still there.

        • Yeah he does for fests as well, as long as time permits and there are no extra barriers in the way.

        • Bhaley

          Ok I get what your saying. He did that at electric forest I just wasn’t sure if he did it every time that was my first front row show.

          • usually i can, every once in a while it isnt possible, but it’s so fun to get to meet people even briefly. I sometimes wish i could just go hang out in the crowd, but that gets wierd

            and i gave up the crowd surfing idea 8 years ago because it feels rude to just jump on people and have them carry me around, id rather give hi 5s
            🙂

          • Bhaley

            Yea I can imagine things can get chaotic pretty fast but just being able to shake your hand and say what’s up really capped off my trip to MI to another level

          • CStaff

            (Kzoo show (thx for sayin it, sooo happy bout that))  
            Me- “Lorin ur the man dude, i’m CStaff i’ve talked to u online before”

            Lorin- “Oh yeah, CStaff. I know you.” (handshake and pat on shoulder)

            This man remembers people, seriously. Coolest feeling ever

  • Nitsund028

    make waves on lake michigan!!!!!!!!!!

  • Shasta Lee

    Three day passes for this festival just sold out! i got one of the last 50.
    There are still individual day passes available for fri, sat, and sunday.
     
    on the site, it lists Bassnectar as playing Sunday.
    so go snatch those tickets up!! the prices will be going up soon, then selling out.
    🙂

    • Phillip Irwin

      This is pretty AMAZING that 3 day passes ALREADY sold out more than a month before the Festival!!!!! WHAAATTT!?!?!? Would love to know the number of just how many were sold??? But I’m glad I have my tickets already! Cant wait to see what you got in store for the last BASSNECTAR Festival set of the summer Lorin?!?! Already forming a great crew at the front cant wait to feel the energy at this one 🙂

      Any idea how long your set will be here Mr. L-man??? see you there!

    • Bhaley

      Haha Shasta you probably got one of the last 20 or even 10. Kind of lame that they are forcing people to buy one day passes separately since all 3 days are still available

      • Shasta Lee

        I was totally caught off gaurd when you messaged me about it selling out
        so i had to hustle through my phone in search of someone that would lend me
        $120 dollars. found someone that would (such lovely people in my life) then i drove literally 70 miles an hour
        to and from the bank to deposit it in there and then bought the ticket.
        after i refreshed the pagge it was sold out. LUCKY ME!
        but there was no way in hell i was missing this. NO way.
        i had IDJ 2010 blaring the whole way there to keep me focused and driving fast.
        and it all worked out

        SEE ALL YOU CRAZY NECTAR NOGGINS THERE! 🙂

        • Bhaley

          Damn that’s intense. I didn’t expect tickets to sell out at all let alone over a month in advance

  • Russo660

    im a little confused. This website and Jambase.com  both seem to imply that ur playing all 3 days, but on the Northcoast site it just says sunday.

    • Anonymous

      just sunday

    • We are playing Sunday night at North Coast. DEFINITELY NOT all 3 days
      🙂

    • Shasta Lee

      three days would blow my mind…

  • M1ssMatrix

    I have a rather esoteric request… I know it’s not likely, but I would futurekick myself if I didn’t at least try 🙂
    My nom and I are coming to this show… and it would mean the world to hear you do something with Sam Cooke. Either “Bring it on Home” or “You’re Nobody till Somebody Loves You”.
    A bass fusion with one of these oldies samplage… love energygasm explosion fantastic.

    Can’t wait see you again… this will be my 6th show, his 8th. 
    Lots of love to Lorin and the whole BassCrew aka The Water Angels!!!

    • chelsey, you should always hit up bassnectar.net/requestline
      but i can tell you as our one Chicago play of the year, and having one hour to go bananas at North Coast, I am already pretty set on what kind of set I am gonna play (A+ highlights from all the summer festivals mixed with BN classics, and some new stuff off Divergent)

      but the creative/new mashup requests are always deeply appreciated, so keep em coming!
      🙂

  • Mskx97

    what is the name of the song where you sampled laughter?? 2:45ish in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzgaUIYtD88 (same song where everyone was told to look at the moon)

  • This was one of the best sets I’ve ever heard, and the perfect way to finish off the festival.
    Thanks for an awesome night and some excellent tunes.

    Oh, and by the way, if you ever decide to release a recording of the set, I’ll happily throw money at you.
