CALLING ALL BASS HEADS! It’s that time of the year again; MASS EDMC is making the trek to Hampton, VA and Nashville, TN for two of the biggest parties of the year – Basslights and Bassnectar’s 360 NYE.
Just like last year, we’ve organized round-trip coach buses departing from Boston, Connecticut, & New York City, and traveling to Basslights in Hampton, VA. In addition, this time around, we’ve added two other options: we’re offering a round-trip bus from Hampton, VA to Nashville, TN, as well as the option to join MASS EDMC on the Ultimate Journey, a spectacular seven-day journey of bass and revelry. The Ultimate Journey will take bassheads from Boston MA, Middletown CT, and New York City, to Hampton VA for Basslights; then from Basslights to Bassnectar NYE in Nashville, TN; and then back home to New England. For any serious Northeast Bassnectar fan, this bus tour is definitely something you should partake in – are you ready?
Have a question? Don’t see the bus pick-up location you were looking for? Need a bus to take you direct to NYE? Or maybe you need a ride just from Basslights to NYE? Comment below!

HOTEL

BASSLIGHTS: We have arranged a group rate discount on hotels rooms at the Days Inn. It costs $97.50 a night, it’s a 10 minute walk from the venue (cab not required), 2 double beds, non-smoking for FOUR adults. We’re going to need TWO nights at the hotel (Saturday the 27th & Sunday the 28th) so the total cost will be around $195 plus fees. The buyer of the room needs to be 21+, everyone else in the room can be 18+. If you’ve already purchased a room and would like to switch the name of the room to someone who is 21, please let us know here.

BASSNECTAR NYE: We have arranged a group rate discount at the Red Roof Inn in Nashville, TN. It costs $112.50 a night, it’s a 10 minute drive from the venue, 2 full beds, non-smoking for FOUR adults. We’re going to need TWO nights at the hotel (Tuesday the 30th & Wednesday the 31st) so the total cost will be around $225.00 plus fees. The Red Roof Inn was the least expensive, yet party-centric hotel we could find a group rate for. Hotels closer to the venue were double, or even triple the price.

PLEASE NOTE: whoever purchases the room will have to present their credit card and ID upon checking-in for incidentals. The room will be reserved under the person’s name who purchases the room. You are responsible financially for your room.

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.
