BASSNECTAR COMMENCES EUROPEAN VACATION TOUR
“VAVA VOOM” EUROPEAN RELEASE DATE – 20TH AUGUST 2012
BASSNECTAR – the California-based DJ, producer and virtuosic maestro of all things bassy, and the man who has singlehandedly sold more hard concert tickets in North America than any other EDM artist this year (Deadmau5, Guetta, Skrillex, Avicii, Tiesto…the lot!) – is about to set off on his most gargantuan European tour yet!
Aptly christened “Bassnectar’s European Vacation” – and kicking off at the mighty Pukklepop Festival in Belgium tonight (Friday 17th August) – the original long-haired, dubbed-up superstar will play a total of 13 shows throughout Europe this summer, taking on a mixture of mammoth club gigs and eye-watering festival stages. Watch the official tour video right here…
In preparation for the colossal occasion – and to whet the appetites of music lovers across the continent – he’s also now decided to share a tasty, eclectic, bass-driven MIXTAPE to get us in the mood – ready for when his body-melting soundscapes reach a city near you. Premiered with MIXMAG as their official ‘Mix Of The Week’ on 15thAugust, Bassnectar’s “European Vacation Mix” is now available to download here for FREE!
“These are a few insane bangers which I decided to compile for my month long summer vacation in Europe. We will be hitting 13 shows (festivals & clubs) and this is a selection of dirty music which I hope you enjoy when you find yourself in a high-speed chase, or tightrope-walking between skyscrapers in a windy metropolis, or sumo-wrestling someone much larger than you…” – Bassnectar
And as if that wasn’t enough, his latest masterpiece long-player VAVA VOOM finally sees its official release throughout Europe on the 20th August. Watch this space – it’s going to be BIG.
