Hello Campers, and greetings from Bass Camp HQ in beautiful Lake Tahoe. We are pleased to announce two outdoor Electronic Music events in South Lake Tahoe and Reno this Summer. June 30, as we present “Bass Camp In The Park” outdoors next to the Truckee River in Wingfield Park, downtown Reno, featuring the Dancetronauts and a line-up of national artists, and July 14 it’s “Bass Camp On The Beach” at sunset in South Lake Tahoe, California. Both of these events will be all-ages. Look for the Facebook Event Pages, and announcement on our socials, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and SnapChat, all under @basscampfest

Since our very first festival in 2013 we have been in awe and inspired by you, the electronic music fans, whose smiley faces make up our fan base. Our mission has always been about you, making sure our events are fun, safe, and comfortable. We have heard your requests and suggestions loud and clear through our social networks, via email and even in person at our events throughout the year, and we have not wavered in our attempt to look for the definitive location for our summer festival that we can form a long-lasting relationship with, build infrastructure, and become an iconic destination for electronic music fans from around the world. The good news is we have found that location and it’s not in a casino parking lot. It’s nestled high up in the Sierra’s surrounded by thousands of acres of national forest land, with existing infrastructure that will allow us to offer tent camping, RV/Trailer camping, and even room to host over 1000 “glampers” in luxury tents. This exploration turned into reality at the beginning of this year when we met with the National Forest Service who are helping us with the necessary studies and due diligence. One of the most important studies has to do with wildlife and how an event of this size might impact the animals who live around the site. Those studies, along with other very important approvals are going to take longer than we expected, but we hope to have good news soon. We want to be able to announce a new, permanent home, in Lake Tahoe for Bass Camp. The sad and disappointing news for all of us is it’s not going to get done in time for us to produce our large summer festival in 2018, but we will be able to announce the new home for Bass Camp Festival 2019 early enough so everyone can plan their journey way in advance and enjoy all that Lake Tahoe and the new Bass Camp Festival will have to offer.

In the meantime, Bass Camp will continue to produce our two new outdoor summer events in 2018, as well as our annual staple events like Winter Whiteout, Spring Breaks, Back-To-School, etc., and we are pleased to bring back The Halloween Bass Ball this October. We will also continue to bring in all the national electronic dance music tours to Reno-Tahoe that you all have enjoyed over the years. We are now producing well over 40 events a year in the Northern California/Nevada region, and we do it because of you, the fans, and the electronic dance music community around us.

If you held onto your festival tickets from last year, you can still bank them to use for Bass Camp Festival 2019, or use any or part of the ticket credit for any our shows, including the new events mentioned above. You can also request a refund by emailing us at bass@basscampfest.com

In closing, we just want to thank you for your continued support for what we do, and hope we can count on you to help grow our community now and throughout the years.

See you at Bass Camp!
