Bassnectar will be playing each night alongside a diverse cast of musical guests including Cashmere Cat, Dan Deacon, Mr. Carmack, CloZee, Tsuruda, Bleep Bloop, Shlump, Son of Kick, and CharlesTheFirst.

We have big plans for this one – three days means UNLIMITED possibilities! We will be bringing our special-event-mainstay features like The Haven with ambient DJs, yoga & massage therapists, free juice & water, and an interactive gift altar, so you will have sanctuary and chill space. PLUS, we’ll be assembling a massive Ambassador squad to welcome you, make sure you have all you need to have a safe and healthy experience: connecting bass heads from all over the country with tons of games, art projects, and ways to make new friends : )

We’ll also be unveiling “The Lot” in Hampton! This is an enhanced gathering space outside the venue with renegade sound systems, pop-up arts & crafts faire, and guest performances. Bring your arts, your crafts, your freak flag, your tailgating vibes, and participate fully. We’ll have more info to share soon, and if you want to participate, perform, or bring an art installation of some kind, as always please hit up the Bass Network to let them know. They will be working hard to coordinate rideshares, ‘bass head hotels’, and help you plan your best possible weekend.

We’re going all wonka for the 10th edition of Bass Center: The Mothership is our Chocolate Factory! We want to transform Hampton Coliseum and create our own Magical World. There will be expanded spaces to roam, opening up the entire venue to every human, with immersive production and the thickest, most all-engulfing sound imaginable.

Plan to blast off like never before : )

Bassnectar presents Bass Center X - Hampton VA

Due to the limited capacity of Hampton Coliseum (and because presale tickets for Atlantic City went instantly) we want to try a different approach for Bass Center X that makes for a less stressful experience for you, and helps level the playing field against scalpers…

(UPDATE: Presale Requests are now closed. If you requested presales you will have received an email letting you know if your purchase has been successful. If not, hit the general onsale!

General tickets are available now HERE.

VIP Offers and Travel Packages which include event tickets will go on sale HERE on Weds March 8th at 12pm EST, for those that want to turn up the WOO-HOO knob and splash out : )

  • Victoria Vini

    Is there anyway I can get tickets for only 1 day or maybe even just 2 days? I’m afraid I won’t be able to make the whole 3 days… 🙁

    • Alex Flaxenburg

      Tickets are for all 3 days. You will likely be able to sell the days you can go individually as they are most likely a package of 3 separate single day tickets. Hopefully this works for you 🙂

  • Kahla Keegan

    How do we do the payment plan?!

    • Vic Silva

      ^ ^ ^ ^ Lorin says be here at 12, we’re here at 12

      • Kahla Keegan

        The option is there now!

        • Vic Silva

          nvm found it

          • Kahla Keegan

            Go to the ticketmaster website and it gives you an option for the payment plan

  • Taylor C

    Was wondering if you are hiring any roving performers for Basscenter this year? Acrobatic duos possibly? 🙂

    • Chris Basscrew

      Would love to hear more! Email me please: chris(at)bassnectar(dot)net

      • Taylor C

        Thanks! Just sent you an email! 🙂

  • Alexandra Zannino

    I can’t find my presale confirmation email and I don’t remember which vendor sold the presale tickets. Anyone know which account I need to log into to get my tickets? Thanks!!

    • Chris Basscrew

      Presales were Tickets Today!

  • Chris

    Really think there should be single day options for this one. Having people take off for Friday on an already 3 day weekend is a lot to ask and is the only thing preventing me from being able to do this at all.

    • Chris Basscrew

      Single day tix are now available sir!

  • Sean

    If you purchase the GA tickets are they doing wristbands like last year? I see a print at home option so i just wanted to see if they were doing singles or if it is still going to be shipped to me wristband style?

    • Pam Charles Turzanski

      Hampton is all GA. There is no floor/stands like at BassCenter 9. Even with that, you basically traded your ticket for the floor wristband. Pretty sure it will just be tickets with no wristband necessary.

  • Adam Christopher France

    I can’t wait to hear about the possibility of live painting going down! I’m totally ready to make some big, bright, robot art and get mad funky to the Bass!! already have the VIP package and just patiently watching for an announcement about arting it up!!!

  • Chuck diesel

    What kind of work exchangel opportunities are there available?

  • Muke

    Will there be single day tickets available in the future leading up to this show?

    3 nights not in the budget but i want to go so bad, this is my only good chance to get to the mothership after years of missing basslights.

    • Chris Basscrew

      Hello Muke! Single day tickets are not available at the moment – maybe check back closer to the show to see if any Bass Heads are selling passes? You just missed the deadline for our payment plan option!

    • Chris Basscrew

      Hello again Muke! Single day tix are now available 🙂

  • Haylee

    I am having a hard time finding the payment plan option. Any tips?

    • Pam Charles Turzanski

      I believe the deadline has passed.

  • Elizabeth Kennedy

    anybody looking for a basshead to work at a vendor booth? better yet, does the bassnectar team need a hand?

  • Andres Kwart

    Hi! Is there any opportunity to volunteer in exchange for a free or discounted ticket?

  • Natalie Antoniades

    Will single day tickets be available for purchase at some point?

    • Chris Basscrew

      Single day tickets are not available for this event at the moment. Maybe come for the weekend??? 🙂

    • Chris Basscrew

      Hey @natalieantoniades:disqus! Single day tix are now available!!! Wanted to give you a heads up 🙂

  • Tanya

    anyone know if transferring tickets is available or how will call will work? im buying q tocket off someone and she said to get it from will call.

    • Chris Basscrew

      Who did she buy her tickets from? Might want to double check if they’re transferrable before purchasing!

      • Tanya

        not sure i found her on fb but she said she would tell will call to put the ticket under my name. Just making sure that would work?

  • Giovanna FireFairy

    Curious about performance opportunities for this event? Would love to spin some fire and lights for this Lot party! Where can I apply?

  • Megan McDevitt

    Are there any volunteer/work
    opportunities available for this event?

  • Cassandra Rae Smith

    Will masks be allowed in the Coliseum this year?(:

    • Chris Basscrew

      That info will be released closer to the show! Please check back soon 🙂

      • Cassandra Rae Smith

        Any word? (:

  • Carlo Cataldo

    Carb free options would be great so we don’t get bloated ayeee

  • Turner West

    Wondering if there will be roaming flow artists and if there is anywhere I can apply. Would be v grateful for any info. Be easy!

  • Purple Flerp

    Any info on live painters/art installations for the lot? I don’t wanna miss the application!!

  • Matt

    When will the tickets be released from the delivery delay on Ticketmaster?

    • Chris Basscrew

      Tickets will be shipping out soon!!!

      • Matt

        Chris, thanks for the response. I noticed on Ticketmaster though my billing address is different from my current one, do I need to update this?

        • Chris Basscrew

          Definitely! You should let TM know this ASAP

          • Matt

            I let them know and they changed the address in their system and said it would update in yours automatically. I think I’m all good?

          • Chris Basscrew

            sounds like it 🙂

  • nick gyger

    Hey fam! anyone got a link to see what I can bring in and can’t bring in? thanks a ton!

  • Cassandra Rae Smith

    Are masks allowed in the Coliseum this year?

  • Chester Drago

    Does the “string style” bag rule mean no fanny packs?

  • Leon Zhou

    Why aren’t we allowed to bring small backpacks and only allowed to bring string only bags?

    How is someone supposed to lock up their valuables such as their wallet, money, id, led toys, clothes for when it gets cold, phone, water bottle, point and shoot camera, led toys? Its not going to fit in a string bag and you cant put locks on those types of cheap bags. This is really frustrating. I dont want be not let in because im just trying to keep me and my friend’s valuables SAFE.

    By allowing in cheap string bags, all youre doing is promoting theft of goods because people cant protect them. There is no logical reason why one type of bag is allowed but another is banned. .

    • Nick

      “Empty Camelbaks (bladder must be removable)”

      Think vibedration homie!! These bags are perfect for events like these

    • Nick

      Also just because I was looking deeper into this the text below is directly from the Coliseums webiste and it doesnt have the string bag reference:
      Allowed items:
      Face paint
      Hula hoops
      Non-professional digital and film cameras, including cellphone cameras
      Small backpacks and bags (8.5×11 or smaller)
      Totems that are not constructed in such a way to be dangerous to public safety (cardboard tubes only. Max length 6’)
      One (1) factory-sealed plastic bottle of water 20oz or less
      Sealed: cigarette packages, tampons, packs of gum, and chapstick/lip gloss
      Camelbak-style water bladder systems subject to specific conditions (transparent and removable bladders, 3 compartments max)
      Prescription medications subject to specific conditions (call or email Coliseum for details)
      Guide dogs for people with disabilities and other service animals with current rabies certification

    • Chris Basscrew

      You can bring in small backpacks! Please see above 🙂

      • Leon Zhou

        The list says drawstring backpacks only.

        • Chris Basscrew

          You are referring to a typo hat has been corrected – it says: “bags 8.5” x 11” or smaller”

          You can bring small backpacks to keep your valuables!

  • Patrick Hoffman

    Please rethink allowing totems in….. Totems block the stage and are very annoying when trying to watch the show. Pleaseeee please rethink being able to bring them in

  • Thankful Irvin

    What’s up with floor seats did I need to get a special ticket for that?

    • Chris Basscrew

      This is a free roam event – you can watch from the floor or the bowl 🙂

      • Thankful Irvin

        Sweet thanks

  • Brendan Pahlow

    How long of sets can we expect each night?

    • Chris Basscrew

      Hi Brendan! We don’t release set times, but be ready to go DEEP 🙂

  • Megan Cummings

    Can anyone tell me how to transfer tickets, unfortunately my brother can’t make it. But a friend wants the tickets

    • Chris Basscrew

      Are his tickets at Will Call or print at home?

      • Megan Cummings

        He has hard copies. But I think we read somewhere that the names don’t matter?

        • Chris Basscrew

          Then he can hand the friend the tickets?

  • BassFace

    I have to come from the airport to the venue so can I walk around with my suitcase in “The Lot” until my friends arrive? Will there be a bag check for “The Lot”?

    Thanks Chris! You rock!

  • Jenni H

    Are there set times for the openers in the venue?

  • rosie

    will Jansport type backbacks be allowed in the venue? also will empty reusable clear water bottles be allowed? i see it says empty camel baks but and factory sealed water bottles but nothing about reusable bottles?

  • Rachael

    Last night on the floor the vocals and when Lorin was speaking was all muffled, we couldn’t understand what he was saying :((

  • Lorraine Cashman

    My husband and I are seniors and stayed at the Embassy Suites during Bass Center X. We’d been called and warned by the hotel that there were a bunch of kids staying there and things might be very noisy. I’m so glad that we opted to go there anyway. The kids were polite, respectful, personable and fun to be around. Members of the hotel staff agreed. Good kids, great fun!

    • Chris Basscrew

      Always nice to hear! Next time we’ll have to get you into the show Lorraine 🙂

    • Pam Charles Turzanski

      That’s the way it should be! We have an awesome community! Come join us next time!
