Bass Coast 2016 approaches

poster-2016

Three weeks ’till Bass Coast 2016! My personal favourite of BC’s artist-run electronic music festivals, Bass Coast is unique for its complete lack of corporate sponsorship, eclectic offering of interactive art, seamless professional execution, and largely female team of organizers (including co-founder The Librarian. Shhh…)

Nestled between the mountains in sunny Merritt, the eighth annual celebration has already made history for being the first time that the show has completely sold out. This year around 3000 people will be making their way to the valley oasis to peruse an innovative outdoor gallery of light and sound-based installations and throw down to a world-renowned roster of emerging Canadian and international talent. Sound like paradise? You’re not far off.

If you don’t already have a ticket I feel bad for you son, but hey, there’s always Craigslist. (Just be smart about it — scams suck and Bass Coast reserves the right to refuse any ticket bought from a third-party retailer.) Those that are on the fence may be interested in reading our review of last year’s event, which reads a bit like a tour of the grounds and gives you a pretty good sense of the experience & logistics. This year’s line-up is featured in the series below, pick a mix and kick back to gain some perspective on the type of music you can expect to hear at Bass Coast.

See you there!

The latest from BC’s chillest local underground electronic music fest … “Our festival site in the Nicola Valley has a distinct allure. Pitch your tent under a shady poplar tree and wade into the refreshing Coldwater River.

Our intimate setting ensures that you are close to the action: three stages with world class sound design by PK Sound, intriguing and illuminating workshops and over 50 original art installations.

Experience over 100 international and local artists, from NYC rapper Zebra Katz, to Berlin-based underground techno producer Kris Wadsworth, to the DJ/instrumental fusion of Vancouver’s own Funk Hunters.”

I love this festival, which is kept friendly and relaxed with a capped attendance at 3000 heads. Limited tickets are available online and at select retailers (Vancouverites, look for them at Beat Street Records). More information available at www.basscoast.ca.

Happy Bass Coast!
