Currently deeeeeep in the Labs getting ready to drop the next EP: Reflective Part 2 (pre-order Friday, full release Dec 1st) as well as refining a world of new content for our Basslanta NYE Celebration…
With New Years prep in full swing, we’re also set to slingshot straight into 2018 with a roadmap of select festivals which weave in and out of four Seasonal Special Events. In time we will reveal more hints and clues to help you connect the dots and assemble a clearer picture of the shining path ahead…

We’re wasting no time launching our Spring Gathering 2018 – see below! – and be on the lookout for Summer/Fall/Winter reveals over the coming months. We will be unveiling themes, dates, cities, venues, and support for all of these events ASAP, plus info on other incredible happenings.

OK, now you know the plan! Here’s the info on our Spring blowout:
We are creating four specially themed events next year, and have chosen a distinct epicenter of the Midwest to launch the first one: CHICAGO!
It’s been 7 years since we properly hit Chicago with a full-scale event (you may remember one of the hottest nights in our long history, practically soaked to the skin at the old Congress), and we can’t wait to return full power with friends and family coming from miles around. We are building a sonic magnet to draw you in from all over the country, taking over a huge room and transforming it into a full-on immersive sweatbox in the style of the raves I grew up on. Flickering lasers, writhing bodies, and undulating bass….all united together on one level!
For this first seasonal gathering we will celebrate the dawning of Spring: rebirth, regeneration, and a radiant gratitude for life. And the whole team is amping up on all levels: art, music, interactivity, and community.
And of course we are welcoming an awesome array of auditory talent:
• Rezz • TroyBoi • TOKiMONSTA • Ivy Lab • Danny Corn • Andreilien •
• Presale tickets go on sale Wednesday November 15th @ 12pm CST
• Public tickets go on sale Thursday November 16th @ 12pm CST
(This is an 18 + Age Limit event.)
• The VIP Experience includes:
> One VIP Ticket to the Chicago Spring Gathering
> Limited Edition Poster
> Early Entry
> Exclusive Space Inside the Venue including
— Viewing Platforms with seating
— VIP Restrooms
— VIP Bars
• VIP Price is $239 per package.
As usual the intention for our events is to gather together in celebration – a celebration of life, love, friends, family, health & gratitude. This is not a party, this is not a place to get high or fade out, this is a place to PLUG IN, make friends, and enjoy being wide awake and living in FULL BLOOM!
We will have all the special features and hallmarks that have become staples at our family gatherings: The Haven, Gift Altar, Interactive Art Zones, loads of Roaming Performers, Live Artists, and Ambassadors all over helping to ensure that you have a stellar experience. The Bass Network has been working hard over the last few years enrich our community in many ways, one of which is facilitating the road trippers and welcoming everyone from everywhere: building a reliable resource for you to find rides and places to stay if you travel from out of town.
So whether you’re looking to carpool, join in on a hotel room, or split a rental, you can find other Bass Heads looking for the same in the Ride Shares & BassBNB group:
