Bassnectar - Bass Center XI - The Fall Gathering - 2018

September 1st + 2nd, 2018
Hampton Coliseum : Hampton, VA

Hold your breath, make a wish, and count to ELEVEN!

We are thrilled to present the next chapter in our ongoing Bass Center series, and our third seasonal event of 2018!

Once again, we’ll be swarming the city of Hampton on Labor Day Weekend for a proper bass head getaway, and turning the Coliseum into our Interdimensional Adventure Ship. Come explore all the wonders of magic and music along with your best friends as we close out summertime and zoom into autumn… Our event is Saturday & Sunday night, since Monday is a holiday, to give you all ample time to travel in to town, and to take your time returning safely home.

We will have full day parties planned (all are welcome for free) as we bring back The Lots (a big hit at BCX), providing an area outside the venue that brings some festival vibes to the Bass Center experience. We will have a dedicated music stage with another finely-tuned lineup [to be announced ASAP!], loads of vendors + food trucks, non-profit area, Activation Zones, Love Here booth, live art, donation drives, and opportunities for YOU to bring your art/music/vibes and contribute in your own way! With a veritable amusement park of freaks, faeries and beautiful human beings roaming The Lots, grooving to good music, enjoying good food, exchanging art and gifts, and preparing for The Throwdown.

We will also have a special Friday Night warmup session at The Norva [more info soon] but for now, behold our amazing musical cast for the main event:

Barclay Crenshaw
Ana Sia

And of course each night will be capped off with a feature-length, fully customized, once-in-a-lifetime Bassnectar adventure : )

Inside the venue we will have The Haven, now a staple at our events, and your place to take a breath and get some space from all the overstimulation surrounding you, with chill out areas, massages, water and snacks. And of course other familiar favorites including the Gift Altar, roaming performers, more live art, and an extended team of Ambassadors + Bass Networkers on board to ensure our community is more than happy and taken care of.
