  • BassJimbo

    Hi, where in this world can I buy a 2-day Basslights ticket without going broke from a service fee in excess of $50 on top of a minimum $200 ticket?

    • Chris Basscrew

      Where are you seeing this? Hit up the @bass_network on Twitter for tickets floating around at face value.

  • Samson

    Are camelbaks allowed?

    • Chris Basscrew

      Please check back closer to the event for this info!

  • Robert

    I have 2 Basslights tickets available for trade for NYE tickets

  • Katie Murray

    Yea my Fiancee was going to take me for My birthday which is December 27th and now tickets are sold out after he looked this morning and their was a few we had a group going to go it is not fair to those who actually want to go.

  • OG

      • OG

  • bailey

    hey guys, im just researching some history for a design project im doing on the bass god himself. I came across the past 4 years of touring data, and it seems as though the number of shows that bassnectar has preformed have been decreasing each year. is there any feedback available as to why this is? I know that most shows are sold out for the love and energy we have for bassnectar, but is the decreasing number of shows simply because he is making enough money to not have to have as many or is the popularity of the music going down? im extremely curious for some feedback as I noticed 79 shows in 2011 compared to 39 in 2014 is quite a difference.

    • Bingo

      I’d need to see more numbers from 2013 and 2012. There was approximately half the number of shows this year because he decided not to do a spring tour this year. I think this may have been the first year he’s not done a spring tour, so that probably has something to do with it. I don’t blame him though, he tours constantly, probably needed some time off to chill (and work on NVSB)

  • haley

    is cutting edge tickets legit ?

    • Chris Basscrew

      Never heard of it – please be cautious.

  • Martin

    Hey fellow bass heads. Due to unforeseen circumstances I cannot make this event. I have two tickets for sale. I am selling at face value + a very minimal fee for any delivery charges incurred. (~$120 each) Add me on FB if you are interested and we can work something out. Thanks!

    • Robert

      I will take both of those tickets from you am willing to pay face value plus whatever delivery fees are necessary

  • Charlie

    Why save tickets ????????

  • Charlie

    He really wants that ????????????

  • Samantha Skates

    I am a huge fan of Bassnectar and Pretty Lights. I’ve seen Bassnectar 4 times and Pretty Lights 8 times. I’ve never missed a Basslights performance and I’ve been from Richmond, VA to Pomona, CA to catch Lorin and Derek play. That being said…I’m horribly disappointed to announce that I just got conned HARD on Craigslist from a guy in Georgia who claimed to be all about PLUR and would never hurt anyone and who seemed to be a true music lover like me. I sent him $400 for three two-day passes and then he fell off the face of the earth. Watch out for people like this my friends. Not only am I missing two of the best nights of the year now, but I’m also strapped for cash now and can’t afford life in general at the moment. Don’t be a victim of a scam artist like me. Watch out for an asshole named ERIC from ATLANTA.

    • Chris Basscrew

      This sucks to hear Samantha – This is why we always do our best to tell fans not to buy from scalpers of any kind! In the future, you can always check the event page of the show for real bass heads selling their tickets. Also you can hit up the @bass_network on Twitter to link up with others that may be looking to get rid of their tix. Finally, we always recommend sites like + to get legit, face-value tix. Hope things are looking up Samantha and we hope to see you soon 🙂

  • Michaela

    I have an extra ticket to Basslights that I’m looking to GIVE AWAY!

    • Robert

      I will pay you face value for the ticket please I desperately need a ticket

    • sammymagz

    • ayojayohh

  • patrick

    hey i am lookin for two tickets?! can anyone help me out?!

  • Hannah

    anyone know when single day tickets go on sale?

    • Cody McCarron

      sometime next year.

    • Chris Basscrew

      This show is completely sold out.

  • Tyler Raymond

    So buying a roundtrip bus ticket doesn’t include a ticket?

    • Chris Basscrew

      Not sure I understand your question – we did not offer travel packages for this event.

      • Tyler Raymond

        Yeah I get that now. I bought a round trip bus ticket, but it didn’t include a ticket to the show cause it is sold out. So now I have a way there but no way in aha

        • a round trip bus ticket wouldn’t come with a ticket to the show whether or not it was sold out… we aren’t affiliated with any shuttle services

          • Tyler Raymond

            I get that now and I shouldn’t have purchased the bus without knowing it didnt, but I got super lucky and found someone selling tickets 🙂 thankyou for responding!

  • D.J. Jones

    I was able to get a ticket….. kept hitting the refresh button and made it through. Can’t make it, though. Anybody wanting to buy it let me know with an offer. Happy holidays – D.j.

    • Johnson

      Hey man, I’d happily buy your ticket, contact me at

    • sammymagz

      Let me know if it’s still available

    • ayojayohh

      Still available?

      • Johnson

        He never emailed me, maybe you’ll have better luck

  • LampShade

    Will more news regarding what can be brought into the venue and opener schedules be posted eventually? Thanks!

    • Chris Basscrew

      The first bit will be put on this page closer to the week of the event – the second bit coming soon 😉

  • summer

  • Amanda

    I’m said that I won’t be able to attend my 3rd year in a row due to people buying loads of tickets and then jacking the price up to 400-500 dollars I love this show. And it breaks my heart it’s the only thing besides burning thy I look forward too :(. Disapointed I want get to relive the beauty it has created in my life

    • BassSnail

      There have been a decent number of tickets sold for face value on a number of Bassnectar related facebook pages. Last year there were also a number of people selling face value tickets outside the venue. You might have to put in a little effort but you’d definitely be able to find a ticket if you looked hard enough. I found two recently for a friend and I

  • NO crying is BASSBALL

    Sheesh! Somebody call the friggin’ WAMBULANCE already!!! Implementing a captcha, jumping through flaming hoops, requiring one to juggle cats cats, nor juggling cats while jumping through flaming hoops will make Nectar tickets sell any slower!! A Bassnectar experience is always indescribable, and SO MANY PEOPLE KNOW IT (especially you complainers!).The ticket situation is only going to get worse as our Bassnectar family grows, just stay determined and diligent in acquiring tickets and trust me you’ll get them… …in the meantime maybe do some yoga, or practice juggling cats or riding a unicycle!

    • Bassfreak2

      hahah its kiiiinda true tho, idk why so many people wait on tix these days

      if you wanna go to Bassnectars best events, get on that shit asap, like literally the second go on sale you gotta be on ticketmaster/live nation

  • yo

  • Marrissa

    Thanks guys, cant wait for basslights coming all the way from wisconsin (:

  • Tj

    I heard something about an afterparty can anybody confirm this?

  • Richie Gentile

    Is Bassnectar headlining the second night?

    • Riceman

      No, Pretty Lights is, he announced it on his facebook page

  • Brett

    Dear Mr. Nectar,

    Hi! Big fan here, love your stuff more than a baby loves boobies!

    I have some tickets to basslights this year, and I’d love go (especially since it’ll be my first time attending one of your shows!) but the problem is that I don’t have a ride at the moment. Mass edmc’s NYC/CT bus (the one I would have taken) has sold out, which is completely my own problem, but I’ve contacted them and they said if enough demand (about 20 more people) were there, they’d launch another bus!

    Do you have any advice for spreading this info? They said to send emails to if I found anyone, but most of my friends have rides. Who knows, maybe there isn’t demand at this point, but I thought I’d give it a go.

    Thanks very much for your time, I wish you an awesome day!

  • Jeff

    Hey everyone, I have a couple of questions…

    This is my first year finally able to attend Basslights, unfortunately I am only going to be able to make it for the second night due to work. That being said, if he announced that he will be headlining on the first night (I couldn’t find where he said that on his facebook) will he still play a set on the second night? And if so how long has the set on the night he hasn’t headlined been in past years? Super bummed I can’t make it to both nights, I was hoping he would headline on Sunday instead

    Thank you, can’t wait to see you all there

    • Chris Basscrew

      He will play a set both nights!
