January 11th, 2012

Bassnectar Va Va Voom Tour 2012Very soon we’ll be announcing the dates for our Vava Voom Spring Tour 2012, but first we’re giving you a chance to guess what cities we’ll be visiting and win tickets in the process, with a grand prize VIP trip to our massive Bass Center V event, including airfare and accommodation.

The contest is now live! The bass head who can most accurately predict the exact routing for the Spring Tour 2012 will win the grand prize. (Grand prize open to entrants in USA aged 18+ only.) Other free tickets and runners up prizes available – more info on the contest page.

We’ve been posting clues on our site and social networks, and have gathered these cryptic tidbits from across the Bassnectar Community so you can piece some of the puzzle together before you enter. Check them out below.

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR ENTRIES – CHECK YOUR INBOX TO SEE IF YOU WON TICKETS!

Clue #1 – The tour kicks off on 4/11/12 with a visit to an Indiana city where Lorin once performed alongside a Russian cohort who remixed ‘Boombox’…

Clue #2 – Lorin held two jobs in the town we are visiting on 05/03/12: teaching music programs at Juvenile Hall, and dressing up as Barney The Purple Dinosaur as a birthday party entertainer.

Clue #3 -Bass Center V 4/20/12 – not far from Bass Island. MD DE NJ will be close to hand. Friends in CT + MA have further to travel…

Clue #4 – On 04/26/11 we’re returning to the town where Bassnectar played the first, last, and only “Girls Get In Free” show where only guys were charged admission (also one of the last shows where Lorin invited the entire party up on stage, back before that was “the thing to do”, and enjoyed having his computer shut down repeatedly by spilt beer and drunken enthusiasts.)

Clue #5 – Our target city on 04/18/12 was the first to sell out in advance last year when the Spring 2011 dates were announced”

Clue #6 – On 04/13/12 we return to the city where in 2011 we gave away event tickets to volunteers to help promote improvements in Public Education.

Clue #7 – 04/28/12 – sounds like Burningman.

Clue #8 – ‘What success I achieved in the theater is due to the fact that I have always worked just as hard when there were ten people in the house as when there were thousands.’ On 4/25/11 we’ll be visiting the birthplace of the famous musician whose quote is central to the Bassnectar ethos…

Clue #9 – On 05/05/12 we’ll be playing the only city where Bassnectar has performed live with a Gamelan Orchestra.

Clue #10 – The first Saturday of the tour lands us in a city that once hosted a festival attended by 27 million revelers. Lorin first played here at an underground party in an abandoned warehouse, circa 2002.”

Clue #11 – As promised, we return to this Southeast city 4/29/12, where the roar of ‘school spirit’ erupted during our last show there

Clue 12# – Often credited as the birthplace of an entire musical genre, the city we are coming to on 05/12/12 is a bridge between two fanatic territories of bass heads. During Lorin’s first set here, the promoters were upset when he jokingly closed with Salt N Peppa’s “Push It”.

CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED

    Ahhhhh when will the dates be posted I’m going insane with anticipation!!!

  • dubstep_fanatic

    I think some of these clues should have been more related around information available to everyone..

    • then everyone would win! in a perfect world… 🙂

    • But then it would be too easy! A race to see who can use Google the fastest isn’t as fun, I think.

    • Most of the clues were answered by the community in the comments/threads/tweets, so if you didn’t know the answers then you can check out what the general consensus is 🙂

    • The contest cut off is midnight PST tonight, but the tour dates aren’t announced until tomorrow 1pm PST, so you’ve a little longer to wait 🙂

  • Anonymous

    Are you guys counting off for spelling?…. because I left out a “d” on the end of a city. I sent in another entry with the correction. Thanks.

    • Nah don’t worry about that, it’s real humans sorting the results, so they will be kind when it comes to spelling and such.

    bass center 5 is probly in baltimore i bet…wtf boston needs a bass center

    the Northeast RAGES and how the fuck dont we ever get any fucking love…we were one of the towns who raged your shows so hard before you and dubstep blew the fuck up…hook us up…remember all those paradise shows back in the day?

    • Kyle

      Bassfreak,
      Lorin definitely spreads the bass love all over the United States.  BassCenters are a relatively new event, so they haven’t had a chance to hit many states.  There haven’t been two in the same place yet, so be patient and let the natural flow of bass take its course…  And you can always road trip.

      • Anonymous

        yeah it just sucks that one of the towns who truly loved him before 99% of his fans even knew what dubstep was, doesnt get much love

        im buying madd tickets for bassnectar at the boston HoB shows…ill rage both shows and probly make a bunch of money off selling tickets

        if lorin wants to play a shitty boston HoB venue, then fine, ill gladly reep the benefits…if he doesnt want scalpers, then play better venues

        he should have played a NoHo show near umass instead of 2 fucking HoB shows

        • Jpa18708

          NoHo fosho (or Mullins Center)

          • Jpa18708

            He would literally sell out in 2 minutes there

          • Anonymous

  • Foxman31292

    i bought my tickets online for Mat 5th at the civic and i wanna know when i can pick them up? i dont wanna wait till the night of the show, so i was wondering if i could get them via mail or if you could send them to the venue earlier and i can get them? it seems like that should be fair.

    • Anonymous

      huh?

    • looks like a sneaky way to try to figure out the location of the secret show…

      nice try! ;P

    • You did not say if you bought tickets from Inticketing or Tickets.com? If they are from Bassnectar Inticketing they are Will Call tickets and you will have to wait until the night of the show. I am not sure how the venue ticketing company is dealing with tickets.

      • Anonymous

        there are no tickets for 5/5

      • Foxman31292

        oh i see. i purchased them from the Bassnectar inticketing, so as you said i wont be able to get them till the show? thats a drag 🙁 but i know the show will be amazing. i talked to the venue and they said i should emil the site and see what i can do, but i guess there is nothing you can do. thanks anyways
