Bassnectar announces fall North American tour

One of music’s most prominent and longest standing bass practitioners, Bassnectar, is gearing up for a busy fall in 2012 with a coast to coast tour that hits markets not covered on his VAVA VOOM Spring tour. His latest album of the same name peaked at #1 in the iTunes electronic chart (#9 overall) and showcases some of the most diverse influences in the EDM world, including hip hop collaborations with Lupe Fiasco and Amp Live, ethereal vocals from Mimi Page and a tribute to California Skate-punk legends Pennywise. Bassnectar’s highly original production style is spurred from a past of far reaching musical inspirations. His music is meticulously produced, consciously relevant and brazenly defies genre categorization.

The VAVA VOOM Spring tour brought over 80,000 Bass Heads together within the span of three weeks. In 2011 Bassnectar sold nearly 200,000 hard tickets ($1 of each goes to charity), with an astounding 72 dates sold out. Whether performing at auditoriums, coliseums, civic centers or a major festival, Bassnectar produces events with the same passion and creativity as when he is making music. Each tour ups the ante with a massive roadshow that packs its own custom sound system and light rig to compliment his expansive sets. Additionally, Bass Center VII comes to St Louis on October 6th with Zeds Dead. The tour kicks off September 27th in Greensboro, NC at the Greensboro Coliseum.
