Bassnectar Red Rocks 2015RED ROCKS 2015

Friday May 29th
Saturday May 30thΒ 
Sunday May 31st
Red Rocks Amphitheatre – Morrison, CO

Our annual Red Rocks events are some of the most special & magical nights each year. 2015 will be no exception, as we dive a bit further into the rabbit hole; this time offering THREE NIGHTS – basses loaded.

On deck as our musical guests is a list that has us laughing maniacally in anticipation: Joker, Benga, Nightmares On Wax, G Jones, Son Of Kick, Eskmo, Lindsay Lowend, Late Night Radio and jackLNDN – plus some extra special surprise guests!!!

Each year, the friends & the freaks come from miles around and whether you are a wild style Colorado Native, a freestyle intrepid traveller, an ultra-experienced old-schooler, or brand new to our underground community, we invite you with open arms! Last year both nights sold out of tickets in a day. We expect a similar frenzy even as we expand to a third night – as our community expands we want to remind you that you can be a visceral part of the experience. If you’re brand new come with an open heart and no expectations; if you’ve been to a hundred shows come show the newbies how it’s done or get behind-the-scenes to help enrich their experience; bring your friends & family and let’s shake the earth and ride across the diverse spectrum of noise vs beauty!!!!

GA tickets are all sold out!

  • Shawn Haught

    Looking to get a three day pass or 3 separate tickets if anyone has to sell theirs. I already got the time off work so if you don’t need the tickets or had something come up, email me and I will gladly take them off your hands.

  • Alix

    For anyone who has done VIP before… the only option for ticket delivery for me was will call, so am I correct in assuming that’s when we’ll get all of our other VIP goodies as well? Anybody know? Thanks!

    • Bassfreak2

      yeah i did VIP for madison square garden and you pick up all your stuff when you get there

      • Shawn Haught

        Not that it matters……..but what was the merchandise that you got for vip for NYE?
        I got vip for Saturday night, really for the poster since its the first 3 night red rocks show. I have been talking it over with some of my buddies and couldn’t find much on the net.

        • Bassfreak2

          for MSG it was a bassnectar hat and for NYE it was this doooope bassnectar winter hat. so youll get some kinda cool red rocks hat or sumthing. plus the poster like you said

  • Bass_Boarder

    Any one know how I can get in on a party bus for the 3 nights? I am coming from Denver.

    • Joe Conway


  • GA tickets are all sold out for all 3 nights. VIP still available:

    • captain obvious

      No shit. This has been the case for days! Got my tix though.

      • Chris Basscrew

        Well actually Sunday hasn’t been sold out for days – it was just a friendly update πŸ™‚

  • Tanzingore

    Does anyone know if it’s worth it to go just one day? I’m only in town for Friday’s show and I’am getting the vibe you may have to go all three days to see the entire show. Does a single day consist of a full length show like a tour show would be? Red rocks is the venue I’ve always wanted to go to and I’ve always wanted to see Bassnectar there, I just don’t want to be let down and get only a snippet of the full show.


    • Smoke

      In a word, GO!

      I have went when he did one show in 2011 and it was amazing.
      Saw both show last year and both were great, Saturday may have been better.

      Better to see the one that none by a long shot.

      • smoke

        Sorry for all the grammar errors. You get the point.

    • Chris Basscrew

      I would say do it πŸ™‚

    • Joel Munoz III

      I’m sure each day will be different, but each one will be it’s own concert. Definitely go! Or pack me into your carry-on and let me go πŸ™‚

  • Deeanna Bennett

    Anyone camping or have tips on good places nearby?

  • jacob

    So I got a Saturday VIP and a 3 day GA, was wondering if it would be possible to sell the Saturday GA by itself and keep the Friday and Sunday tix?

    • jacobbass2

      Yes you’re tix will come in individual days so you can sell just Saturday!

  • nalamama

    There are more than 1500 tickets on sale on stub hub and the cheapest are $90+….I call bullshit. Someone bought a shit ton of tickets and is selling them for double. Wouldn’t be surprised if this was all planned out to pay all of the fines he will rack up. Sucks, really wanted to see you Bassnectar but not worth the price.

    • Joel Munoz III

      Have you ever been? If not, please know that it is TOTALLY worth the price. If you live close enough to RR to go, consider yourself lucky. Think of all of the people who would gladly go if they didn’t live across the country(or world). You should check and magnolia miracle religiously for tickets(face value sites). While it is worth it, it is BS, stub hub is such a con!..and there is no conspiracy, pretty sure he has enough $ from years of nonstop touring.

  • Jake Friedler

    heyyy Lorin! my name is Jake and I’m a current senior at Stanford working on an honors project in which i’m adapting an ancient Greek tragedy called ‘Bacchae’ to fit the sights and sounds of contemporary rave culture. i was inspired by Nietzsche’s ‘Birth of Tragedy’ to see electronic music as one of the most powerful Dionysian forces there has ever been, bringing people together, dissolving egos, and generally challenging the primacy of reason. your music, particularly NVSB, has been a huge inspiration to my adaptation, and i’ve even borrowed a few of the lyrics for the Greek chorus arrangements in the play. i feel like this is something you would be really interested in and i would love to talk to you about the project or just invite you to come see the show – it’s going to be staged as an immersive, site-specific rave experience in May of this year. i’m pasting some of the chorus lyrics below to give you a taste of what my script is like. you can also check out this review i wrote of your last SF show, which lays out much of the theoretical framework for my adaptation (again, inspired by your lyrics & set arrangement!). thank you so much for all that you do, you are the greatest DJ/shaman in the world πŸ™‚

    do gods still hear our rhythmic prayer?

    does heaven keep the time?
    does law divine still reign on earth?
    does spring still rain down wine?

    does thinking ever do us good?
    do mortals ever win?
    can truth be more than metaphor?
    can there be good in sin?

    take me to ibiza, sweet aphrodite’s land
    where truth dissolves in wine and sweat
    where youths make love on sand
    take me to detroit, where ares still presides
    where warring beats fill factories
    where cares recede like tides

    take me back to homer’s time, when everything was whole
    when law divine still reigned on earth
    when mortals knew their role
    take me back to festivals, when cities danced as one
    when wine ran rivers in the streets
    when worship still was fun

    let the music take control
    turn it up and let it go
    answer to the call of soul
    let the music take control

    let the bassline take your mind
    dance it out til you feel fine
    leave your home and join our roll
    let the music take control

    • that’s super rad πŸ™‚ im not lorin of course but would love to talk to you about it as a fellow basshead and classicist πŸ™‚ study classics at penn

    • Jake you are a nerd! i love it!!!!! Curious if the title is in reference to Bacchanalia (the Roman festival defined as “a wild drunken orgy”) or if it’s inspired by something else?

      • Jake Friedler

        we didn’t make up the name, it’s a real ancient Greek tragedy that i’m adapting and ‘Bacchae’ and ‘Bacchanalian’ both derive from Bacchus, the Latin name for Dionysus:

        you gotta hear more about the show we’re putting on, it’ll be wild! subs, DJs, lasers, kandi bracelets, all worked into a crazy beautiful poetic play about cult religion and violence… May 20-24 at Stanford pleeeeeease come play with us πŸ™‚

        • right, so, the greek tragedy was probably written a couple of hundred years before Bacchanalia and the associated cults/rituals actually arrived in Rome… but it’s directly derived from the greeks πŸ™‚ like a lot of things the romans did πŸ˜‰

          love this btw.

      • Jake Friedler

        hey Lorin, following up on this earlier comment, I would like to formally invite you to Bacchae, an audience-immersive rave experience which opens at Stanford tomorrow night! this project animates the parallels between ancient dionysian religion & 21st century rave culture. it was massively inspired by your music. learn more here:!bacchae/c79o

        begins at the front steps of Stanford’s Cantor Arts Center
        May 20 @ 8pm | May 21 @ 9pm | May 22-23 @ 7+9pm

  • Justin

    Are the VIP goodies different for each day or will they be the same?

  • Guest


    I don’t have Facebook or Twitter, but I wanted to make sure I told you – HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! You are the man, I can’t wait to see you play Red Rocks – I’ll be coming from NC for all three nights. Keep doing what you do, much love and respect.


    Trying to plan my stay…is the after party going to be in englewood at gothic theatre again?

  • Shawn Haught

    Is stub hub out of RR tickets for real or is my browser playing tricks on me?

    • DWTF

      shows 495 friday, 478 sunday tix left. Bowser be trippin!

  • Anna

    Does anyone know a safe place to buy 3 night GA tickets since they are all sold out here? Or how do i stay safe from being scammed ? Any advice helps thanks so much !!! ??????

  • Zack Summers

    Don’t know if the request line is still looked at by Lorin so I would like to make a request here. I was wondering if Hold On could be played and possibly transitioned into Fire. Holdin On got released with the NVSB album 3 days after my fiance and I delivered our stillborn son. This song got us through this hardship and would be therapeutic to be engulfed in all of its maximum energy. Thank you for everything.

  • Dubnectar

    DAMNIT!! I wish I can see Bassnectar for once in my life :'(

  • Dubnectar


  • Dubnectar

    My parents would NEVER let me EVER go see BASSNECTAR ive been having dreams about it and I listen to Bassnectar all the time just so I wont be so upset about it, but its been too long now, I HAVE to see Bassnectar no matter what!

  • Michal Terpilowski

    Just got my tickets last night!!!! Road trip from NJ to RedRocks with the crew!!!! Hope the frog song made the playlist for Saturday or Sunday πŸ˜€

  • Molly

    Looking to do a clean trade of 2 GA Sunday tickets for Saturday πŸ™‚

    • Chris Basscrew

      Anybody got any leads for Molly??

      Also Molly – you can hit up the @bass_network on Twitter and they can help spread the word πŸ™‚

  • zak spatafore

    I have always wanted to meet the king, how oh how do I become one of the lucky few to be in the presence of Lorin? I have a tattoo I did on myself that would look great with a signature on it πŸ˜‰

  • Joshua Thomas

    How can I volunteer or be ground control?

    • you could do some research into joining our ambassador program if you’d like to volunteer directly through us — otherwise i’d suggest contacting the venue about other volunteer or staffing opportunities

  • Casey O’Brien

    My girlfriend is now completely in love with you. She was never really into Electronic music but after seeing you in Baton Rouge a few months ago, for her first Nectar Experience, she was so excited to catch you at Buku and you blew her mind. She hasn’t stopped talking about it since. I’ve loved your music forever and it is so great seeing a fan be made before my eyes. Your music transcends genre and so many times I’ll be at your show with my mouth agape thinking ‘how the hell do you do it’. Please don’t ever stop doing what you do.

  • Joe Spak

    Driving up from El Paso to Red Rocks if anyone is looking for a ride and wants to share the driving expenses. I have three seats available. Hit my up here or on FB.

  • Brian David Gilbert

    Last year (my first time at red rocks) I literally PISSED MY PANTS over the noise and CRIED over the beauty! You changed my life drastically during that show (the other shows too)! I felt like I was a part of YOU (&your intensions)! literally the Bassnectar SYMBOL was everything!! (the outer rings were the rocks, the 2 dots was the croud, the middle ring was the BASS, the bottom ring was YOUR VIBE and the bottom circle was the UNKNOW) I was lucky enough to go for free (my friend new how deeply I love you) all I could think was “wow this is unreal I need to come back every year and bring ALL my friends’ then I heard Morrison didn’t want you back and I CRIED (of sadness) for like 2 days!! But your coming back!! and 3 nights!!! and ALL MY FRIENDS ARE COMING! Love you Lorin! I hope to meet you one day so I can give you a hug

  • John Derda

    I can’t wait to experience Bassnectar at Red Rocks! I’ve been on board with your music since I first saw you live in my hometown of Saint Louis 2 years ago. When you came to town last year, it was right around the time of the Michael Brown shooting and your show was just what the doctor ordered for that nasty black cloud hanging over my city. While some DJ’s were dropping out of performing in my area, you still came and it meant a lot. Each time I see you its been a total spiritual experience for me. Your music has become a part of my everyday life dude. Just wanted to say thanks. Red Rocks is gunna be bonkers! Keep an eye out for a ginger going ham in the VIP section during the Sunday show!

    • Thanks man! I never really thought about dropping out, and I love that you feel that connection! This is most definitely a labor of love, and Im glad you’re tuned in!

  • abernathy

    No bassnectar at shambhala this year… tell me it isn’t true πŸ™

    • Jami LeAnne

      I bet money that he’s the mystery headliner at the Pagoda. He has that weekend open on his schedule…

  • Clafuu

    Will Red Rocks be restricting totems again this year? Thanks team

    – C

    • Chris Basscrew

      We will release this info closer to the show – please check back!

  • Eli Gordon

    Lorin, I have been attending both nights of bassnectar at red rocks since I was 14. My birthday is on May 29th, and I have used your one or two nights a year as a celebration of my life with close friends and family. This year, I turn 20, and through my developing years you were one of my greatest influences in helping me decide to dedicate my life to helping others. I’m a junior International Affairs major at CU-Boulder, and I strive to be an ambassador or politician in efforts to help the less fortunate not only domestically, but globally. This year will be the last year I’m able to attend your show as I will begin my global travels next year to start helping those who need it most. I’ll be at your show on the 29th (the first year it’s fallen on my birthday), and I’ll be following you to Tennessee to see you at Bonarroo as well. The example you set with your music, philanthropic programs, and attitude in light of being a global star is both humbling and inspiring. While I understand that there are hundreds of thousands of dedicated fans, It would be an unforgettable experience for my 30 best friends and I if you would help send me off by playing my favorite song of all time, Timestretch. Your music continues to inspire me, lift me, and ground me, and I’ll carry it alongside the messages it sends while I strive to make this world a better place in the upcoming years. If there is any chance you could play timestretch, mention this message, or my name it would only further the life changing experience that is your show. I cannot overstate how impactful you have been in my life, and I only wish that I can begin to impact others like you have me. Thank you for doing what you do, and continuing to inspire people to be their best day in, and day out. I’ll see you on the 29th of May right above the sound booth in a hawaiian shirt and bucket hat, same as the last 5 years; Until then I wish you only happiness and success in all your endeavors.
    -Eli Gordon

    • Guest

  • Maximus

  • Tyler Erlandson

    Have we learned what F.U.N is a acronym for?

    • Joel Munoz III

      i would love to know that as well! F*cking Unbelievable Noise?

      • I don’t think it’s been officially confirmed but the rumor is Future Underground Nation

        • Joel Munoz III

          Future, future, future… πŸ™‚

  • Damon

    This has probably been covered, but I can’t find anything from my mobile device: are GoPros allowed in?

    • Shawn Haught

      I cant say 100% this year, but last year i was able to take mine in.

    • Chris Basscrew

      Hey Damon – we will have this info closer to the show!

      • Shawn Haught

        AHHHHHH pretty much a month away. That is all

      • Damon

        2 weeks and I’ll be on the road to red rocks! πŸ˜€

      • Damon

        1 week! Any word on go/no go for GoPros? I’ll be taking a cab to the show from my hotel so if I take it and its not allowed in I’m in a pinch!

  • Deeanna Bennett

    How many VIP tickets are sold per night?

  • Christine Askew

    I have one ticket for each night, face value if anyone is still looking.

    • Chris Basscrew

      Hey Christine! Not sure if you still have the tickets or not, but if you hit the @bass_network on Twitter I’m sure there will be plenty of bass heads ready to gobble them up πŸ™‚

  • azbasshead

    Any word on the new music?? My friends and I wanna get a little familiar with the new jams before they drop at RR!

  • Tyler

    I’m always just so frustrated because I feel like it’s so increasingly hard to see bassnectar live. All his shows are either at huge expensive festivals or completely sold out. I attempted to go see him at NYE last year because that’s the closest hes gotten to me, but the tickets sold out within a day without me even realizing it. It just sucks for the poor fans who can’t afford to see him. Not trying to complain but it’s just irritating because I feel like ill never be able to see my favorite dj. I’ve been spinning fire/LED poi to his music for about 3 years now. One of my dreams is just to be able to spin at one of his shows. But the way it’s looking, I won’t be able to see him this year either, unless I somehow manage to get ahold of this year’s NYE tickets. (Sigh) help me out bassnectar team. But Lorin I just wanna say thank you for all you do, I’m sure you already realize this but your music affects so many people in positive ways. For me, I found your music not too long after I “woke up” and started thinking for myself and becoming an enlightened individual and since then I’ve just been so inspired to deal with life head on and to love this life we all live together. Keep bringing that bass bro. I’ll always be a fan. <3

    • Chris Basscrew

      Hey Tyler! Where do you live????? Did you miss out on the NVSB Tour this past fall?! We do all we can to make sure shows are as accessible as possible to all bass heads πŸ™‚

    • spaceylacey

      you get what you put out.

      be positive that this winter run doses you up with the tastiest nectar sets!! πŸ™‚

      its kind of a bummer that youre facing this obstacle because a few years back i was able to make a bassnectar set every other month at least. and i live on the east coast. his touring has calmed SLIGHTLY i mean the dude needs some rest hes always at it nonstop. and these tickets do evaporate with the quickness. its just that this experience feeds soooooo many souls and we all want to be there to witness it. so i feel ya struggle.

      but keep hope alive and remember to keep positive and youll attract lots of nectar <3 <3 xoxox

  • Joel Munoz III

    @Bassnectar:disqus “I totally want to cut off your skin and wear it to my birthday… It’s coming up…” lol, not for real <3 see you at #basschurch

  • Zach Clark

    I am looking to sell 2 VIP tickets to the May 31st show. is there anyone looking to sell 2 VIP Saturday tickets at all? I really need help. I am desperate to see Bassnectar with my Lady on Saturday. Unfortunately I lost my job just recently, however, I’m starting a new job but there is a schedule conflict that messes with my whole plan to see Bassnectar on Sunday. Is there is anyone at all who can help me? Thank you!!!

    • Chris Basscrew

      Hey Zach! You can hit up the Bass Network on Twitter (@bass_network) too – they can help spread the word about your situation!

      • Zach Clark

        thank you so much!!!

  • Manhattan_24

    I attempt to buy the VIP for 5/29, and it says there are tickets available but it says the Event is not on sale and i’m unable to buy them, wtf.

  • Jenny

    NO TOTEMS?! D:

    • Joel Munoz III

      thank goodness right?

  • Alexandria

    Any word on the Pre-Party for VIP>>Times, etc? THANK YOU BASSTEAM!

    • Shawn Haught

      i got a email few days ago giving me details about the vip package i got for saturday.

    • Chris Basscrew

      Hi Alexandria! You should’ve received an email with this info – email me at chris(at)bassnectar(dot)net if you haven’t!

  • bassRAR

    Hello BassTeam!
    I have a 3-day ticket I got from the initial sale. I can’t go Friday anymore. Even though my name is on the ticket, can I give the Friday ticket to my bassfriend and she’ll be gouda? Thanks you, lotta love! πŸ™‚

    • Chris Basscrew

      As long as it is a physical ticket you should be good! Email me at chris(at)bassnectar(dot)net to confirm πŸ™‚

  • devinthado0od

    Hey Lorin! You should play hologram on 05/30. I have seen you 3 times at red rocks and still haven’t heard you play my favorite song. Would honestly melt my heart if you played it πŸ˜€ This week cant go by fast enough, from a Basshead for life…..Devinthadood

    • Joel Munoz III

      you have to request songs here …

      • devinthado0od

        Your a champ Joel. Thanks for the link, hope I finally get to see this beautiful song performed! πŸ™‚

        • Joel Munoz III

          I’m sure in 6+ hours of music with no repeats you’ll hear that jam at least sampled πŸ™‚ i guess i lucked out when i heard it at my first Nectar show at Boutwell Auditorium, Birmingham AL in 2013. It was love at first sight/sound/feel. btw-there is no limit to the requests you can send in either. I requested some live Tom Morello…you never know!

  • Brett McClelland

    Hey Bass Team. VIP gets early entrance, do they get free range over the whole venue?? I know they have a designated area, but everyone(who wants too wait early for a front spot) is thinking their just gonna take the front spots because they get in early, and we were gonna be waiting a while, and wana know maybe, we dont wana wait 6hrs in line and VIP already be sitting in the area we wanted b/c they got in early?? Referring too the first 3 rows, they usually hand out different wristbands…

  • Stankynugz

    A very good friend of mine invited me to come to my birth place where I left before I could remember. The entire trip was unplanned and random, the only thing planned was out tickets to this amazing show. From every occurrence to the next,bi was led to see primal one of the greatest shows of all time. I have never experienced such implexibilities as to what was encompassed those 3 extroidinaty nights. I will forever be changed from the land, the scenery, the people, the high vibes in the air, all the way to the impeccable music synchronizing it all together. You rocked that show, and I’ll never forget. Let that bass drop! 2016 I’m already there!!!!’ In Lak’3ch!
