After weeks of teasing fans with cryptic messages back and forth, giants Bassnectar and Pretty Lights have confirmed that their co-headling winter weekend, Basslights, will be happening for the fifth consecutive year. Unlike in the past when the weekend occurred close to New Year’s Eve, this year’s festivities will take place from December 19th to 20th, leaving fans plenty of time to recuperate for 2015’s send off. Though the headliners have not yet been announced, this weekend is unmissable for bass music fans. Check back to find out additional artist announcements.

 

 

Take A Bus To Basslights!

MASS EDMC has organized three round-trip coach buses to take bassheads down to Virginia. Buses will depart from Boston, Connecticut, Philadelphia and New York City; tickets and traveling to Basslights in Hampton VA for $130 dollars + fees.
The buses are standard coach buses with a bathroom. Each passenger will have a reclining seat, and room both underneath and inside the bus for luggage. Music will be played and watching a movie is always an option – feel free to bring your favorite DVD.

BUS POLICIES

By riding on these buses you are joining our family, our team, and our community for the weekend. We’re all here to have the best time possible and in order to achieve this goal, it’s imperative that each passenger is responsible and respectful. Please look out for each other. The following policies are in place to ensure we get to the festival as safely and timely as possible. Any passenger who does not adhere to any of the below policies may be removed from the bus at the Bus Captain’s discretion.

1) STATE LAWS.

We will be crossing state borders and stopping at rest stops where laws may be strict, not to mention potentially encountering law enforcement throughout our trip. This means absolutely no alcoholic beverages, illicit substances, or questionable behavior outside the bus throughout the trip. If we see you visibly participating in any questionable behavior, we will not hesitate to remove you from the bus. Keep it tight!

2) PUBLIC BEHAVIOR.

Please be mindful of your behavior when we are at rest-stops, Walmart, or public settings of any sort while on the bus trip. Your actions reflect on our trip and community as a whole.

3) BE TIMELY.

There are 50 others on the bus besides yourself, and we’re all trying to get to the destination. At rest stops, you must be mindful and return to the bus by the time set designated by the Bus Captain. Those who dawdle will delay the arrival time for all passangers – please aim to avoid holding up the bus.

3) NO OPEN FLAMES.
4) MUST BE 21+ TO DRINK ALCOHOL.
5) BE RESPECTFUL.

Though you may not know everyone on the bus and though it can sometimes be extremely difficult to control your emotions/fists/words while contained within a small space for an extended period of time, we ask that you are respectful at all times.
