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!
Only 6 weeks ’till Babe Coast and tickets are already half-gone! Attendance is capped at 3000 so if you want to throw down… don’t wait. This festival is owned and run by artists, and showcases both local and international talent.
Options to escape the heat in the daytime include the cool shade of the trees or the creek running through the festival grounds.
For those looking to experience an outdoor celebration of art & music with a mature & intimate crowd, you’ve come to the right place. Now in its 6th year, Bass Coast boasts world-class audio/visual, seamless logistics, and truly inspired installations & performances.
Last year’s theme was “Mutiny”. Yes, that is a pirate ship coming out of the main stage…
BASS COAST PROJECT
A lofty collaboration from some of Vancouver’s hip hop & electronic talent. I met a guy at Celebrities last week and managed to catch his DJ name, Kandy Space. Kandy Space mixes a lot of R&B and does the production for laid back hip hop tracks of Vancouver rappers which everyone can appreciate. Find him posting new tracks at the speed of light on his Soundcloud. Pick up some free downloads while you’re there.
