Check out our playlist to get you amped for one of the best bass lineups all summer below.

The very first Bass Center was in Broomfield back in October 2010 and featured a more diverse lineup with OG talents Nosaj Thing, Brother Ali, Ott, Dan Deacon, and That 1 Guy. Bassnectar’s website states, “Originally designed to be special regional gatherings – travel destinations with a ‘come one come all’ atmosphere – the Bass Center events have become a traveling circus; the flagship shows of our tours, and a chance to go above & beyond and make things more special and adventurous than ever before.”

We know many of you were disappointed by last year’s news that Bassnectar would no longer play Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado. As an artist that has blown up massively in the past several years, Lorin Ashton has acquired an incredible network of support and devoted fans and Colorado has one of the strongest in the country.  Impacts on Nectar fans and other lovers of the bass experience at Red Rocks due to decibel and bass limits imposed by the park earlier that year has created tension and frustration in the community. Well cry no more Colorado bass heads, now we can go get our womp fix right here in Denver nonstop July 29 – 30 at Bass Center. See ya there!
