NYE ATL 2017

September 19th, 2017


Bassnectar: NYE ATL 2017

The excitement is gathering to a frenzy as we prepare to head down south for our annual NYE celebration, this year we are convening in Atlanta!!!

Our intention is to design a magical portal into an Alternate Universe… when you cross the Threshold we intend to explore new undiscovered dimensions using a time machine built out of human energy… sound unrealistic? We don’t think it’s unrealistic – we think it is inevitable (: We are returning to the same place where we held The Gathering in 2016, except taking over a new level of the building and moving the walls to create a totally new physical space – a custom cut Portal where we can converge as one big family to bring in the The Future together.

Joining us as our special musical guests are What So Not, Ott, and Phutureprimitive – STACKED!!!!

As usual with our family gatherings, all the enhanced features will be in full effect:
The Haven, The Gift Altar, Interactive Art Zones, and the largest assembly of roaming Ambassadors to date (:

These special events have truly become a traveling circus! We have loads of freaks organizing and coming together to engage and connect the community. There will be lots of ways to get you all in the mix.

The Haven: Our safe space where you can relax, get a drink, a snack, a massage, get off your feet, and float before returning to the mayhem. This is a sanctuary to unwind and mingle and meet new friends, but it’s also YOUR SPACE so feel free to bring your own vibe and contribute. This is also the creative hub for our Ambassador team, they will be there to greet you with open arms and make sure you feel comfortable  (:

Gift Altar: Located inside The Haven, this has been a lovely addition to our events this year! All you have to do is bring a gift to contribute: it can be a small piece of art, a love note, a family heirloom, a note for a stranger, a tiny trinket, or just anything special you would like someone else to have. In return, you can pick up something for yourself, or something to give to a friend: a keepsake to help remind you of the memories we will be making to bring in the new year!

Interactive Zones + Art Stations: We will have areas set up where you can get creative, connect on a deeper level with one another, and interact with the community. There will be art stations for you to paint and make art as well as spots to get your face painted, hair braided, cover yourself in glitter, and embrace your inner weirdo! The Ambassadors will also have endless projects going so you can meet new friends and explore your thoughts and ideas in new ways. Plus we’ll be bringing non-profits and organizations through for you to link up with, get involved, and get active!

Live Art + Roaming Performers: We’ve been welcoming so many different artists and performers from this community to join in on enhancing the experience, bringing art in its many forms! Want to do live painting, flow/spin/hoop, be a roaming character, or bring an art installation? Hit up the Bass Network – they’ll be coordinating and helping to get as many involved as possible  (:

It’s months away, but our entire team is working overtime planning SO much magic in one massive space! We love these one-floor events, no seats, no stands, just everyone together on the same level. We love inclusivity, and there is no better time for that than New Year’s Eve <3 This is a family affair: so bring your crew, your family, your friends, your grampa, your gramma, your neighbor, and anyone else who wants to dive in deep with us as we welcome The Future together (:
