Bass Camp Festivaltook over South Lake Tahoe from August 6-7 to provide attendees with bass, unity, and so much more. Anyone who has ever been to Lake Tahoe knows it's one of the most beautiful gems nestled on the California and Nevada border. During the summer, the sun shines through the tall pines and the lake becomes home to tons of water activities, making it the perfect location for the annual Bass Camp Festival.
The grounds of the recently renovated Hard Rock Hotel and Casino paired perfectly with the intimate vibes set forth by the Bass Camp Crew. With huge headliners such as Nero, Krewella, and Arty, it was no surprise that the venue was comfortably packed with attendees of all ages, showing that the love of music really has no age limit. In addition to the main stage, the Dancetronauts who have been at festivals such as Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas to Burning Man and hundreds of stops in between, brought their party and pyrotechnics to create a stage of their own. With a silent disco, and a surprise Red Bull stage on the second day, Bass Camp Festival brought a stellar weekend to festival goers.
On day one, highlights included a live set from Australian duo, Hermitude, as well as a head-banging B2B from Protohype and Figure who just kicked off their 'Outta This World' tour. Dirtybird favorite Justin Jay had a killer set, bringing out friends for an extra special performance. Ending the night was a special live performance from female superstar duo, Krewella. The Dancetronauts stage was full of dancing and bass as up and comer Kayoh killed his set, and a closing set from Ranger Bass.
Day two was just as packed full of talent as main stage headliners brought strong vibes and even stronger sets. A personal favorite of the weekend was NIGHTOWLS, who just announced their coast to coast 'Full Moon Tour'. The electronic duo is currently killing it in the industry, grinding hard, making a name for themselves, and keeping their fans close to their hearts. NIGHTOWLS is definitely a name you don't want to sleep on in the upcoming year. In addition, Arty, who released his 'Glorious' album close to a year ago, took time out of his busy schedule to please fans with a No Arty, No Party performance that had the floor dancing from start to finish. Ending night two included crowd favorites Borgeous and Nero, who with different styles both captivated the crowd fully through. Opening the Dancetronauts stage was Sacramento based duo Joyzu who brought their own unique style to the dance floor. Joyzu is also a must-watch duo who is sure to bring the heat in upcoming months. Make sure to check out their new original release Hear You Say below. Other favorites include a kick-ass set from Aaron Jackson, our final must-watch upcoming artist and a B2B with Dack Janiels, Wednesday, Figure and Protohype.
Bass Camp Festival was definitely a summer festival we truly enjoyed. Be sure to check back at DamnThatsEpic.com for exclusive interviews from NIGHTOWLS, Arty, Figure and Protohype, Aaron Jackson, and Kayoh!
