Greetings Bassnectar Family!

We are rounding the bend into September, and with the advent of the Fall season comes the inevitable onslaught of bass, as the Divergent Spectrum Fall Tour will soon be dropped in your face.

Bassnectar’s Bass Center events, previously produced in North Carolina and Colorado, have a reputation for being the next level of the Bassnectar touring act, featuring larger sound, cutting edge production, special effects, and a jaw-dropping light show. These events are ground zero for Bass Culture, acting as a lightning rod for participation from the larger Bass Community that drives the show as much as the event production.

As you may be aware, on September 17th San Francisco will be host to Bass Center III. A week later, on the 24th, we will be on the opposite side of the country for Bass Center IV, which will go down in Washington, D.C. From coast to coast, we are extremely excited to bring you such fantastic events.

If you are just as stoked as we are, and are thinking to yourself “I AM SO EXCITED! I just wish I could help in some way!”, then look no further. We have an opportunity for you to be an integral part of the experience.

Ambassadors in Boston

If you are a personable, enthusiastic, responsible, and creative individual, we would be interested in having you join our team of Ambassadors. You may have seen or met some of our Ambassadors at previous events, decked out in white, traversing through the crowd bringing joy and happiness to those around them, and making sure everyone stays safe and well-hydrated. Ambassadors are dedicated to serving you, the audience, ensuring that your experience is as enjoyable as possible at each and every show.

If this is something that you think you are fit for, send an email to bassteam (at) bassnectar (dot) net with the subject “BASS CENTER # AUDITION – NAME”. Include in the email answers to ALL of the following:

1. Why would you be a good Ambassador?
2. What could you contribute to the Ambassador crew?
3. Do you have any relevant experience?
4. What inspired you to apply as an Ambassador?
5. Do you have a project or crew that you propose to create or join as an Ambassador?
6. How many Bassnectar shows have you been to?
7. How old are you?
8. Where do you live?
9. For both these events, we have a special request that you provide us details on what your “totem” would be and how you would build it for the event. Totems are figures, toys, shapes, etc. on long handles that are held above the head as in the picture.

As we only have a limited number of spots available, your answers will be weighed against each other, and the final crew will be chosen accordingly. If you are not accepted, fear not, for you will have other opportunities to apply in the future!

Applicants should be aware that an underlying theme of the Ambassadors is to fight the stigma that accompanies electronic music in the live setting. This stigma is a result of the rampant drug use and the widespread misconception that one cannot have a good time without the aid of intoxicants. Though it is not our place to tell you how to treat your mind and bodies at a show, if you are assuming the role of an Ambassador, you are working for us and are therefore expected to take on the responsibilities we give to you. Our number one rule is that you arrive on-site completely SOBER and remain so for the rest of the show, having an equally awesome experience without any foreign aid. We are trying to foster a very important community within Bass Music culture, and if you cannot comply with this requirement, please save us both the time and do not apply.

If everything else is in order, and you think you might be interested in contributing to a Bass Center, start crankin’ out an application! Do not hesitate to include evidence from friends and family of why you would be a great Ambassador. And regardless of whether or not you are accepted — thank you for the time. We appreciate it and can’t wait to see you at our Bass Center events!

APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR BASS CENTER III: FRIDAY, SEPT 9TH at NOON PST.
APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR BASS CENTER IV: FRIDAY, SEPT 16TH at NOON PST.
