Lorin Ashton knows exactly what it means to put on an earth-shattering show. Every performance Bassnectar delivers is unforgettable, something heavenly, something deep. Accompanied by his own top-of-the-line sound system, Bassnectar reaches into the depths of all musical genres and pulls out only the finest pieces to display. It's more than a concert, more than a show — it's an experience. Ashton and crew deliver a one-of-a-kind night, complete with groundbreaking visuals provided to complement the waves of bass that wobble your senses. With Diplo and Flying Lotus also on the bill, this weekend should solidify the notion that Bassnectar is the absolute best at what he does – and will explain why his shows often require noise permits simply to start.
