Last night, Lorin Ashton (aka Bassnectar) brought his massive production to Red Rocks Amphitheatre for night one of the bass-infused mayhem. Backbeat's own Britt Chester (who was also commissioned by the Bassnectar camp to document the evening) was on-hand for the festivities and brought back these photos from the night showing everything that went down from start to finish.

A lot goes into the production and setup of a Bassnectar experience. Over twenty stagehands from both the Bassnectar camp and Red Rocks were on-site for the staging. Steve Conry, owner and founder of Cinesthetics, documented the production for a forthcoming video.

DJ Rootz opened the day and brought the crowd up perfectly without reaching into the depths of bass and hard hitting sounds. Mellow danceable grooves commenced, and the day was kicked off.

Keys N Krates followed Rootz, and they certainly know how to move a crowd. The place was filling in anticipation for the headlining acts, but Keys brought the tempo to the prime level.

Diplo played right before Bassnectar. The set was a moombahton dance party.

We heard a special remix of "Zombie Nation," but it couldn't have been a nod to recent happenings in Florida. Or was it?

The visuals set, yet again, a new precedent in the "awe" category.
