Beats AntiqueBeats Antique – Beats Antique is best imagined as an innovative creature built from the cumulative heritage of the world’s music chasing its tail. However vivid that image, when a marching band groove crashes into bluesy folk chords only to be accompanied by electronic beats and Middle Eastern melodies, you’ll still be surprised.

Big GiganticBig Gigantic – Dominic Lalli is responsible for this jazz meets electronic mix, with Jeremy Salkin on drums and beats. The duo mix both electronic and acoustic instruments to create an ethereal sound that defies genres as it ebbs and flows in symphonically surprising ways. Not a single beat is wasted as their textured music slips from one era to another, prepare to be dazzled and delighted!

BonoboBonobo – Simon Green, aka as Bonobo is back on the live circuit with us this fall. This London future jazz phenom is bringing his most impressive DJ set ever to Canada on the heels of his lauded ‘Black Sands’ LP. Bonobo’s music comes in lush, complicated layers edging close to many sub-genres but really creating its’ own. Swirling jazz, with a heavy bass line and a methodical linear progression, Bonobo represents electronic music in its’ most elevated state.

SuperDreSuperDre – In just a few short years, SuperDre has brought her unique sound and contagious stage energy to packed dance floors and events across the nation.
Releasing her funky, minimal techno sound on her boutique label, Bass Candi, SuperDre thrives in the live environment delivering most of her sets on turntables along with midi controllers, an art becoming more and more rare among Producers/DJs.

    This craziness over pit passes is becoming absurd. In my opinion the show is just as fun anywhere in the venue, because it is one massive community. Although the front row and pit is super rowdy, dont pay SCALPERS aka CHACHBAGS what they want. You will have an incredible experience no matter what, believe me. I find it absolutely insane that people are buying tickets above face value from these douchers for an event that IS NOT EVEN SOLD OUT. Just my 2 cents.

    • JMFC

      This is true people, Ive seen PHISH at this venue and the sound is absolutely amazing, no matter where you are.

  • Bucketbananas

    is there a lineup for the weekend?

  • Bucketbananas

    and by lineup i mean acts playing each night and times? thank you

    • JMFC

      try reading the top of the page….

      • JMFC

        the part where it says “line up will come out the week of the show” is pretty much a dead give away…

  • Jbrown

    sooooo who wants to make friends? i’m gunna bring stiiiiiickers…..!

  • Phillip Irwin

    1 WEEK people!!!! THIS show is going too EXPLODE!!!! Sooo Stokeddd

  • Mcanning112

    anybody selling a lawn ticket for saturday only? 

  • Jordan

    Lorin I know that Bass Centers are very special and extreme in production but please oh please bring the lasers to ATL!

    • yes please.

    • Phillip Irwin

      This show is gonna be BIGGER than any Bassnectar produced event YET!! if that 12,000 number holds true… Were gonna see there Best all around outing AND I CANT WAIT!!!! 🙂

  • are we allowed to bring rage poles to this venue?

  • centipede dream

    this line up is KILLLLLEEERRR… I might have to skip class and come from PA 

    • hell yeah, coming from philly and its totally worth the drive

      • centipede dream

        I meaaaannn I saw all of them at bisco buttttt… I just can’t get enough

        • yeah same, this’ll be the 11/12th nectar show and 6/7th PL show this year hahaha

      • centipede dream

        I meaaaannn I saw all of them at bisco buttttt… I just can’t get enough

  • Mckinnonjordan

    So Michael is not too fond of the lasers lol, doesnt even worry me!! Cant frikin wait, cant sleep, cant focus, just cant wait for this amazing spaceship to take off! Flying to Colorado for your biggest show and than your bringin it all back to my town, this is awesome, simply great karma

  • Bucketbananas

    any clue what this sunday surprise is?

  • again i’ll ask, are rage sticks allowed in?

    • Jordan

      I believe so Eric, shoot the venue a call, but Lorin heavily encourages them. I dont think they would be a problem at Verizon

    • projectpat

      I’m from Georgia and have been to Verizon many times but have never seen them there… BUT i just called Verizon Amphiteather and asked about them and they said that the bands granted the fans permission to use them.. So Bring that shit and rage HarD

    • awesome, figured as much. i know at governes island they normally dont let them in but for Bassisland they did. dopeness!

  • Brooke H

    do any of you guys know if both nights are different shows? like different setlists?

    • G

      of course they’ll be different

    • Shasta Lee

      Both nights will be different. In terms of line – up Bonobo and Big G will be the opening acts the first night.  And the second night will be opened up with SuperDre & Beats Antique. With Pretty lights closing out the first night and Bassnectar the second. (as listed above)
      In terms of what is played by Bassnectar and Pretty Lights, I’m sure there will be different music played.  Seeing as Friday and Saturday tickets were sold as one at first, I don’t think they’d make you pay to hear the EXACT same setlist two nights in a row. dats boringg

      have fun!

  • Anon

    Does anybody know who any of the photographers were at front row?

  • ailin

    i’m so disappointed about the show in Buenos Aires, Arg. i’m a huge fan, and i was extremely excited about the show, suddenly i realised  that BassNectar CHANGE THE PLACE OF THE SHOW and is actually doing just the “warm up” of Skrillex, and the tickets are all sold out, cuz skrillex is trendy after the Grammys, finally real fans of Bass Nectar have no tickets. 🙂

  • Leftyloopy97
