For the last seven years, Bass Coast Music Festival has provided a platform for rising talent in the world of bass music. Taking place July 10th to 13th in Merritt, British Columbia, Bass Coast features an intimate atmosphere that puts equal focus on music and art installations. In an effort to keep the festival true to its roots and original vision, venue capacity has been limited to 3,000 people. In the words of co-founder Andrea Graham, “Our goal is to inspire creativity in everyone who attends. It’s to empower our community to discover their own creativity, and I think that has a positive effect across the board.”

Unsurprisingly, bass music is the dominant genre on the Bass Coast lineup. G Jones, Dr Jeep, J:Kenzo, J Phlip, and Sam Binga are among the headliners announced so far. The festival has branched out in recent years to incorporate news styles and sub-genres as well; house artists like Justin Martin, Detroit Swindle, and Basic Soul Unit add some diversity to the initial lineup. The organizers behind Bass Coast pay close attention to creating a cohesive lineup that could function as if it were a single set. Each of the venue’s four stages has a specific theme chosen for them prior to the artist selection process. Artists are assigned to each stage by genre or style to ensure that the music has a nice flow throughout the festival.

Steve's obsession with music began when he was 16; he saw his then-favorite band, Metallica, play the TD Garden in Boston. His musical tastes have broadened since then, but he is still chasing that feeling of excitement & unity he felt at his first show. His introduction to the dance music came when friends brought him to a Bassnectar show, and he hasn't looked back since. When Steve heard MASS EDMC were looking for writers, he jumped at the chance to get more involved. Writing for MASS EDMC has given Steve a rare opportunity to combine two of his passions: writing & live music.
