And you know what to do….

This will be the 3rd year in a row of Bass Center in Hampton, and we’re looking to once again make this an all day affair by setting up a massive amount of activations and activities for you in The Lots during Saturday and Sunday afternoon! But a few questions before we dig in…

What are you bringing to The Lots? What are you contributing outside before entering The Mothership??

Now let’s begin… here’s a list of what you can find in The Lots:
> Loads of vendors selling food, drinks, clothing, art, and more!
> The Bassnectar Pop-up Shop (selling limited edition Bass Center gear)
> Outdoor renegade soundsystem blasting curated playlists selected by Bassnectar and the Bass Crew.
> A Feminine Health Drive collecting donations to benefit students in the city of Hampton (CLICK HERE FOR THE DETAILS)
> Murals set up by The Bass Network using the current Be Interactive grant theme Heathcare – this year’s live painters will be creating large scale art with mental health and self-care as inspiration.
> The Love Here Booth where you can get water, drop off donations, grab some ear plugs, get a spray tattoo, and so much more!
> Hella Ambassadors running around making sure the community is well taken care of and ready for orbit.
> Activation Zones with lots of art projects, as well as games and activities to link new bass head buddies and deepen friendships.
> A bunch of roaming performers spinning, hooping, dancing, and more! Feel free to join them!!
> Meetups, workshops, and yoga! (details below)
> and so much more!

PLUS: some of Be Interactive’s favorite nonprofit partners will be joining us this year:
> To Write Love On Her Arms: dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and invest directly into treatment and recovery.

> Students For Sensible Drug Policy: mobilizes and empowers young people to participate in the political process, pushing for sensible policies to achieve a safer and more just future.
> Hampton Healthy Families: focuses on providing reactive social services. They offer parenting classes and other programs for teens that take place over multiple weeks, allowing them to be a primary resource provider for those experiencing poverty.
