    Tennessee is thrilled to have you back, Lorin. kick some ass for the dirty south 😉

  3. CurryFever says:

    I can’t believe you’re not coming to Denver.

  4. Bassfreak2 says:

    going back to nashville is a fucking joke…spread the love…shuda just done Basslights on NYE instead…even tho Id rather see you, I think im going to PL on NYE simply bc its in a better city…nashville is weak as hell and a city that doesnt dserve a SECOND NYE show, like come on spread the love

    • Brack Tommie says:

      First, Nashville is an amazing city for NYE. Clearly you weren’t there last year. Secondly, he was required to sign a multi-year agreement with Bridgestone Arena.

      • Bassfreak2 says:

        idk it just sucks hes going to the same place again, like all the same people are gonna be going that live around there and really it just sucks…like back when nectar was playing in SF at sea of dreams on NYE for a couple years at least it was for a festival, in nashvillel its not even a city thats known for partying (the way bassnectar and dubstep fans party) or dubstep or just seems like hes ignoring a lot of people who would also like to see him on NYE and prefer to be in a cool place where theres stuff to do AFTER the show cuz face it, the show is only a few hours and after the show i still wanna be going HARD on NYE…but that sucks its a multi year contract thats pretty much some bullshit…but come on man nashville isnt shit compared to cities like LA or NYC or even chicago or miami, thats why Ill be at PL in NYC (assuming i can get tix)

        • Buzzkill says:

          Im from Indy and absolutely thrilled that he is going to be in Nashville again if you were there last year you would realize that The city is poping on New Years if you really wanted to go…. Make it happen anything is possible and to the comment that he is Ignoring alot of people…. how is that? He just did a tour across the country not to mention the festivals over the summer he played at….. your argument is invalid

          • Bassfreak2 says:

            i think its obvious that NYE shows are on another level and obviously im not just talking about general bassnectar shows, im talking about his NYE show that only happens once a year and now hes going back to the same spot again…and yeah id much rather party in NYC than nashville and anyone with half a brain would agree

          • Colleen says:

            nashville is so much more centrally located (at least for the east coasters) than NYC is. more bassheads will be able to travel from all over, rather than secluding the NYE fun to the northeast folk.

          • Bassfreak2 says:

            yeah but NYC is so much better and one of the biggest and most popular cities in the world…

          • Colleen says:

            what’s more important? popularity~* or making this epic event accessible to the widest range of people possible?

          • Bassfreak2 says:

            whats more important is being in a legit city, unless the show is gonna last all nite and end at 7 am…which it wont

          • Colleen says:

            to each his own! there will be 10,000+ people there who disagree

          • guitarmonsta says:

            aaahahahahahahaa the fucking truth if I’ve ever heard it. real talk.

          • Buzzkill says:

            How can you say that one city is better than another…. because of population? Size? lights? what are you judging this off of? Nashville is a great city and just because its there again and you might not be able to make it doesn’t mean you should be degrading the city its in. Hell if im not mistaken PL will be in NYC for NYE hit that if you wanna throw down in NYC dont get upset because of the location

          • Bassfreak2 says:

            well obviously thats what im gonna do, im going there simply bc its in a better town im not wasting my time and money in nashville fuck that…and anyone with half a brain knows NYC is better than nashville in every category except sucking

          • Shasta Lee says:

            Nashville is awesome! Music capitol 🙂

          • guitarmonsta says:

            damn right 🙂

          • Colleen says:

            Nashtyville PT 2

          • Tyler Lewis says:

            Well then ill be sure to send you a picture from the show in our sucky little town.

          • Alex says:

            I hate that your a fan of bassnectar =( You seem like a mean hard headed guy that just wants to hate </3

          • DubbaTyler says:

            Exactly so true, this guy needs to chill out and quit complaining and enjoy the Nectar regardless of where he’s playing.

          • Timmy Vansel says:

            youre an awful music fan lol….and you know nothing about nashville. but thats ok, i wont hold it against you friend

        • Tyler Lewis says:

          the fact that Nashville doesn’t throw down like dubsteppers is the reason he should play it. Nashville is fun as hell though, and new years last year was just last year. Personally I cant wait to see all the glow sticks and bassheads taking over 2nd avenue. And it doesnt sound like youve even been to nashville to me, theres a ton of things to do after the show, it may not be as big as New York City but if you don’t have fun in nashville you have either never been or you’re a misanthrope.

    • crackadelic says:

      ob your not a bassfreak for one cuz if your a true basshead it wouldnt matter if you could even go.. went to nashville last year for nye & im real upset i CANT go this year & nashville is one of the most clean cities ive ever been to.. nyc is a dirt hole newspapers flying everywhere trash lining the fences i think you need to take a trip somewhere else & stop complaining!! Im going to see pretty lights & bassnectar for basslights in virginia & i can tell you right now im not dropping my money to see pretty lights thats for sure youll be pissed you went to nyc cuz its a better city over seeing bassnectar in nashville. lol enjoy nye!

      • Bassfreak2 says:

        LOL im DEF not a basshead…even tho ive seen bassnectar more than most of you and have seen him since before you guys have ever heard of him, but yeah DEF not a basshead….basshead is just a synonym for custy, which i clearly am not…bassnectar is awesome and my fav artist but fuck nashville ill be at the NYC ragin my face off to some Pretty Lights

    • themanyo says:

      you are ridiculous. if i wanted to get mugged by homeless crackheads I’d just go to atlanta. fuck NYC.

      • Bassfreak2 says:

        NYC is fucking infinitely better than fucking nashville…Lorin thats a lame ass move that your giving a city like nashville 2 NYE shows 2 years in a row, thats fucking bullshit

  5. Mr.Lady says:

    Thank goodness. Only 45 mins away from me.

  6. Matthew Evans says:

    so what if he’s playing in nashville for new years eve? At least he’s playing! (Thank you Lorin!!) I’m driving almost 8 hours for this show and this will be my 11th time seeing Bassnectar.

    • crackadelic says:

      i drove 9 hours last year for it!! girlfriend cant get off this year but atleast ill be able to go to basslights!! hopefully he does another nye on east coast next year!

  7. nectarhead says:

    nectar is back in smashville, lord its gonna be wild

  8. Guest says:

    Since the pre-sale tickets for New Years sold out in like 2 minutes, I looked on Ticketmaster’s website and they have “Advance Presales” starting Thursday at 10AM Central. Any idea how we access that before the tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday?

  9. N8digi says:

    What happened with the presales? I got kicked out several times while trying to purchase tickets. It seemed to happen to many people.

  10. ARdubstep says:

    So I see that VIP includes early entry into the arena. Does this mean guaranteed wristband for floor?

  11. Taylor Tengwall says:

    Bass Bus from Minneapolis/Madison/Chicago to BassLights and NYE?!?! I live in Duluth, MN and New Years is my birthday

  12. hayden says:

    driving 8 hours for this!!!!! cant wait!

  13. crackadelic says:

    i was just looking at pix of the coliseum & it does have stands so does presale from this website give you floor access i hope?

  14. Basshead says:

    Is VIP 21 and up. Or r they available to everyone

  15. BassHead17 says:

    Are all the presale tickets floor standing?

    • Colleen says:

      it’ll be first come first served, it’s likely that there will be a wristbanding situation with more details on that TBA

  16. Kyle says:

    Ed/Basscrew, Will a download link be available for Bassnectar’s BBC mix from the other night?

  17. Stomp says:

    Please share the ambassador info or application info!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! would love to be apart of that for new years and my 16th nectar show!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love

  18. HereWeGo! says:

    How much longer until we know who the opening DJ’s are? And will backpacks and glowsticks be confiscated again this year? Had to throw away a brand new bookbag last year 🙁 61 DAYS!

    • Shasta Lee says:

      Patience on the openers, they will be announced soon!
      Glowsticks will be confiscated at EVERY Bassnectar event. Please leave them at home, or better yet don’t buy them. They’re super wasteful! We do encourage LED toys however, as long as the venue permits them.
      More information of what exactly is and is not prohibited at this venue to come.

  19. Zoe says:

    HELP!! Just went to try and buy a travel package for 2 nights at the Renaissance with 2 basic tickets…. This website: me they are still available, but when I go to buy, it says the package is sold out. What’s going on Nectar Crew? I was really disappointed because I was holding out to book this.

  20. Bassstreet says:

    Anyone making the trip to Basslights from SC or GA – looking to carpool??

  21. 262basshead says:

    anybody that went to nashville last year for NYE how long was his set?!?!

  22. Garren says:

    Bringing in this crazy year right I can’t wait . Thank you lorin for showing ur love on good ole tenneessee. We Are Ready For Youuuuuu

  23. Timmy Vansel says:

    Thank you so very very very much Bassnectar for coming back to my home! This is my birthday, and the memories I made last year will last a lifetime. I cant believe its happening again lol YAYYYYYY

  24. Alex Benesch says:

    Where does one Request some tracks for NYE? 🙂

  25. keena says:

    hi i was wondering how close vip section will be to the stage??

  26. Dre Tavi says:

    Do we know who is opening??

  27. Zoë Hesp says:

    Is there a pre-party planned for NYE?

  28. Zoë Hesp says:

    Is there going to be any sort of official pre-party in Nashville like last year? I just assumed since you were selling two night hotel packages.

  29. Ryan Collins says:

    Driving 8 hours, nye here we come, let’s go bassheads

  30. FraserBass says:

    Will you be able to bring in backpacks

    • Colleen says:

      which show are you asking about? for basslights no large backpacks but small bags should get in. for NYE i’m still waiting to hear the final word about what will be allowed. i can get back to you!

  31. Burton says:

    I can’t believe I didn’t see that my bank cancelled my purchase of my ticket due to fear of fraudulent charges!!!! I just looked today and now I don’t have a ticket and they are sold out on ticketmaster?!?!?!?

    *I now want a VIP but they are sold out as well! Now time to go to craigslist to scalp a regular one…*

    • Colleen says:

      Aw i’m sorry that happened. I hope you find a ticket at a reasonable price… we always encourage our fans not to support scalpers, cuz they suck and screw over true fans like you all the time. Good luck!
