Empty camelbacks, non-professional cameras and small searchable bags are all allowed. Totems are allowed – no sharp objects permitted, subject to venue discretion. No laser pointers or hula hoops.

A statement from Mullins Center regarding the process for Wristbanding is below:

“The process used for wristbanding at Mullins Center is based on two primary objectives: public safety and customer service

Given the building’s layout and proximity to Commonwealth Avenue, we needed to be certain that lines did not extend or back up to this very busy street, which is located just off the main entrance to the arena. By beginning the process earlier in the day, it would allow us to process the lines more efficiently, not coincide with guests coming for general entrance and avoid long lines extending toward Commonwealth.

This process also would provide the best service to those coming to the show because we would avoid having guests wait in a wristband line, then when wristbands hit the capacity, those in line having to switch to another line. At that point, they would then be at the back of the next line.

We gave this process much thought and consideration and feel we have the best possible approach for a safe entrance for the show.”

        How can you say *f* anything? Those Boston back-to-back shows was one of the best nectar experiences of my life man. Then again, I suppose you could say that about any nectar show if you lived next to it.

    • 518HamSolcomb

      Boston is not the surprise show. Lorin visited during the spring tour

      • dad2

        So? he also visited NYC and Burlington in the spring tour.

        Why would he go to NYC again but Boston is out of the question? he keeps selling out, so might as well keep coming.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=506475108 Craig L.

          I hope its a Rhode Island show, as he said (in providence) that he would return next year! ::checks the cosmos clock::

  • HappyBasshead

    hoorayy a little hometown pride over here :) it’s about time you returned to the Valley! Our hills are filled with quartz, ya know. i’m psyched for my 11th show! and the supports are so on point!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=506475108 Craig L.

    Noticed the image poster for this date doesn’t have other artists listed but the text does.

  • Biscobum

    Yuck, Amherst! Would love to go to this show but I’ll pass since I won’t like the vibe of the audience.

    • Biscobum

      Bros and hoes rolling balls, fuck that shit.

      • HappyBasshead

        hey, now, it’s not amherst that’s the problem, it’s the university. admittedly you will have the frat crowd but i guarantee if you get there earlier for the supports, you’ll connect with some beautiful people who truly care about the music and the bass. hope to see you there!

    • Bassfreak2

      lol u sound like such a bitch…skipping a nectar show because of the potential crowd?
      this is how i know ur not truly there for the music, please dont go to any concerts dude

      • Biscobum

        I do care about the music. I just don’t want to have to deal the frat boys that try to get as close as possible turning the crowd into a squished mess. Also, yes I’ll miss this nectar show because of the crowd but it really just means I’m going to be traveling a little longer to get to whatever show I do go to.

        • Bassfreak2

          no its means ur in it for the scene the drugs and the girls
          you are a frat bro, bro

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=506475108 Craig L.

            Enough back and forth ping-pong insults and UGLY tactics! Its udder insanity that because of how someone dresses or acts that you “would like to skip a show”. Everywhere, no-matter-where there is going to be someone that you disapprove of in their demeanor. But the virtuous choice is not to say “oh f-that” but rather show them the light and way and GET ALONG considering that you both have a love for Lorin’s artistic expression. If thats not enough, then why are you here? The only solution…

        • https://twitter.com/#!/hzaidi09 Hasan

          There’s plenty of space in the Mullins Center to avoid the crowd, just stay up in arena seating and enjoy the lightshow! The sound is dialed to sound bangin from all angles, so it is not necessary that you subject yourself to the squishiness.

    • biscobumhater

      fuck you

    • bassheadmeds

      are u serious amherst throws down they know how to rage the best clearly your a scene guy

  • Bassfreak2

    anyone remember the last Umass show???? we fucked shit up…cant wait for another umass show
    and fuck that KID who wont go cuz of a potential crowd, what a bitch

  • 518HamSolcomb

    Where ya’ll traveling in from?

    Sam checking in from Clifton Park, NY! Lets get nasty!

  • 518HamSolcomb

    I think this is a question only Lorin or Ed can answer, do you know how the venue stands on totems? I would love to show some NY pride!

    • http://www.bassnectar.net Ed Basscrew

      We have just requested this info from the venue (plus their policy re: bags, water etc) and will update above as soon as we hear back. Hopefully it’s Totems all the way!

      • http://twitter.com/Jpa18708 James Allen

        any word on the totems?

        • Colleen

          yup — they’re allowed. nothing sharp/pointed

          • Leo

            What exactly is a “Totem” in this context

          • Colleen

            i’m glad you asked :) totems aka “rage poles” are those strange contraptions you can often see bopping out of the crowd at a bassnectar show or festival. they’re just weird decorations/oddities/posters/LED wire/etc attached to the top of a short pole (painting poles work well!)
            they always light up the crowd

            you should make one :)

      • 518HamSolcomb

        The venue is large enough!

      • Bassfreak2

        im just happy we can use camelbaks in there, those things are fucking awesome

    • IHEG

      They are permitted if they are under 5′ tall and have no sharp objects attached.

  • facenectar

    grizmatik to nectar = jizz in my pants. fratstars gonna bring the ruckus, who gives a fuckus teehee

  • Nectar24

    Does anyone know what time the venue will start handing out floor wristbands?

    • Colleen

      not sure, but it’s usually before doors open, perhaps an hour or two, don’t quote me on that though! if that info becomes available i’ll let you know

  • joey soens

    hey i have a question i would love to go to a show but i just turned 16 in august and i dont have any real photo ID is there away i could go?

    • Colleen

      You can definitely still go! You need some form of identification, but there are a couple of options. Do you have a passport or anything else that has a photo and a birthdate on it? You can also get a state ID without having a driver’s license, so you could get one of those before the show as well.

  • Basshead213

    Never been to this venue and only the upper decks left. Is Mullins Center a theater deal or would you actually be able to dance up there?

    • Colleen

      You’ll definitely be able to dance up there!

    • Bassfreak2

      idk what ur talking about, i legit just bought the lower level tickets on ticketmaster with no issues like 2 minutes ago, ill be ragin the floor, cant fucking wait for another bassnectar umass show, even tho this one wont be the same since I and all my friends have graduated, but whatevs its all about bassnectar and grizmatik

      • http://www.bassnectar.net/ Shasta Lee

        Hey,
        Just so you know you are NOT guaranteed that you’ll be on the floor just because you bought a lower level ticket.


        FLOOR ACCES FOR THIS SHOW WILL NOT BE PREDETERMINED. A LIMITED NUMBER OF WRISTBANDS FOR FLOOR ACCESS WILL BE GIVEN OUT ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS ON THE NIGHT OF THE SHOW TO THOSE WHO PURCHASED LOWER LEVEL GA TICKETS. THOSE WHO PURCHASED UPPER LEVEL GA TICKETS WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR FLOOR ACCESS

        • Bassfreak2

          yeah i plan on gettin there early anyways for Griz but honestly its the mullins center. half the people that work there are students and dont give a shit. gettin on the floor shudnt be hard imo…but thanks for the heads up

          • http://www.bassnectar.net/ Shasta Lee

            No problem.
            Most shows this tour people have been lining up 3+ hours before wristbanding starts.

          • Bassfreak2

            def wont be there that early but whatevs ill find a way lol. wont be hard at this venue. wristbands are just a piece of paper. im. problem solver so ill figure it out

          • Basss12

            when does wristbanding start?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-Peter-Allen/567401709 James Peter Allen

    Are the lower level tickets for the lower seats and floor? I bought one of those tickets a little while ago. I went to ticketmaster a second ago and saw that the lower level tickets are sold out and there are upper level tickets on sale. I was wondering that if lower arena is sold out, does that mean that the actual floor is first come first serve for all the lower level ticket holders, and the rest will sit in the lower seats, or will there be enough room for all of the lower arena ticket holders?

    • http://www.bassnectar.net/ Shasta Lee

      THIS IS A GENERAL ADMISSION EVENT. FLOOR ACCES FOR THIS SHOW WILL NOT BE PREDETERMINED. A LIMITED NUMBER OF WRISTBANDS FOR FLOOR ACCESS WILL BE GIVEN OUT ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS ON THE NIGHT OF THE SHOW TO THOSE WHO PURCHASED LOWER LEVEL GA TICKETS. THOSE WHO PURCHASED UPPER LEVEL GA TICKETS WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR FLOOR ACCESS.

      -Sorry it’s in all caps, i just copy and pasted it from the ticketing purchase link.

  • Bass123

    What time will wristbands be handed out?

  • Basss23

    With the wristbands being handed out starting at 10AM what are my chances of getting one if i arrive at 4?

    • http://www.bassnectar.net/ Shasta Lee

      Questions like this are difficult to answer because the scale of each event varies.
      I’ve attended shows where wristbands ran out only an hour after.
      And I’ve also been to shows where they were handed out for 5 hours +
      Best advice I can give is to get there as early as possible and to not get upset if you don’t get one.
      The view from the balcony/seated area is AWESOME. I’d recommend standing so that you are looking directly at the stage, instead on the sides of the venue. You have a great view of the crowd and the light show, and if you need to get concessions or go to the bathroom you have a much easier time getting out and accessing those.
      Enjoy your night :)

  • Bassfreak2

    pretty fucking stupid that they are giving out wristbands at 10 am day of, so everyone that goes to Umass gets the floor but everyone who has a real fucking job gets fucked over…ima get there a early as work permits me to, but it shud be first come first serve ONCE the doors are open, cuz half the assholes who get wristbands early that day wont even be inside the venue til about when bassnectar starts and people like me will be in the seats the whole time cuz i care more about the music than the party and getting fucked up…im stealing wristbands from my work and hoping i grab one of the right colors, if i dont then im jumping to the floor lol, FUCK seats that shit ruins shows and u can barely dance in there…theres no fucking way im gonna stay in one spot for a WHOLE bassnectar show

    • 518HamSolcomb

      I COULD NOT BACK YOU MORE.

  • 518HamSolcomb

    Hoping Grizmatik brings the fire, I already know Lorin will do it big. Look out for the green and white pole with a departed Indian on it. BOOOOOOOOM

  • Mrorange002

    Only seen bassnecter at BM, I cannot imagine having to sit inside some stuffy venue to listen to him. I think I might need a bit more space…

  • ac1em

    as far as bringing a valid photo i.d. goes, is this just to show that you are 16+? or when you go to receive a wristband do you have to show your i.d. so they know the wristband is yours? like do they write down the wristband number with your name? or would it be possible to have a friend stand in line with a ticket, receive a wristband, then give me the wristband and ticket for later? i’m wondering this because im going to be late but want to guarantee myself floor access

    • Colleen

      you definitely need a valid ID to prove you’re 16+
      to get a wristband you just need to present a ticket. one ticket = one wristband and it goes on your wrist immediately, so each ticketholder has to be there.

      • UUUuuuUgly888

        What if I do not have my ID, i lost it last week, could i use a college ID???

        • Colleen

          Security needs to be able to match you with your photo and birthdate, so just a plain college ID wouldn’t work. If you can bring a copy of your birth certificate with your college ID then they can match it all up. A passport would also be solid ID. Also, if you go order your replacement ID, they would probably give you a temporary paper ID that you could use along with your college ID to prove your age.

  • Ala

    Sadly I cannot attend :< ..it's not yet sold out, but please reply to this post if, once tickets are out, you're interested in mine.

  • BassFacePace

    Anyone know how many wrist bands will be given out?

    • Colleen

      i believe it’s 2300

  • http://www.facebook.com/Eliasc.dib Elias Chehade Dib

    Where can I find the mix sound track for that night? It was epic !

    • Colleen

      you mean a recording of the set or something? that stuff is totally unreleased! lorin prefers to keep his live experiences precisely that — LIVE. every show is catered specifically to that audience, it’s a very fine-tuned and personal experience between lorin and the crowd, not intended for anyone else’s ears :) thus the live sets are on lockdown.

      you can always replay it in your head :)
