Bassnectar is a man that needs no introduction. Known for bringing one of the most epic live audio and visual experiences to his live sets, Bassnectar has played just about every notable festival and club across the globe such as the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater, where he has effortlessly sold out multiple dates for years. Earlier this year though, Lorin encountered a contentious dispute with the venue after they imposed lower decibel levels. The producer made sure to voice his frustration via twitter, making it clear he would never return to Red Rocks after the noise reductions and even going as far to say that, "Other than ambient music or rock, the venue is a bust sadly." He also sent out a mysterious tweet regarding a possible solution to the problem, stating:
"There will be no Red Rocks shows of any decent volume in 2016. They are gonna lower their DB level even more. We have other plans for CO ;)"
Now we have a even more exciting information about what exactly he was talking about. Bassnectar's website accidentally published an article that has news of his first ever multi-day festival, and a camping festival at that. An article that was set to go live at a later date covered a new Bassnectar chocolate bar. In the article it mentions the fact that 5 winners will be chosen to win VIP tickets to 2016's Bass Center. But it also says it will include "camping," making us believe Bassnectar has created his very own festival.
"To make it even more fun, we have a special surprise for 5 lucky chocolate lovers. Hidden inside 5 of these bars are Golden Tickets, each offering free weekend admission to next year’s ‘Bass Center 2016’ (2 full weekend VIP passes, plus camping) …more info to follow on that!"
He has thrown a handful of Bass Center events in the past, but none that have included camping. Does this mean that the petition started last year, which asked for a 3 day camping festival in Colorado, has finally been answered? We'll be sure to keep you updated! We have to admit that things are pointing in that direction, Lorin himself didn't even shy away from the mistake, see his exciting tweet below.

Songkick just unintentionally announced the long awaited news of Daft Punk playing headlining performances at Coachella 2013.
The legendary Daft Punk has become the most talked about and rumored electronic act in the entire world. The rocked the world with their iconic L.E.D. pyramid setup they took on their 2007 Alive World Tour. A few years later they got recruited to create the soundtrack for the blockbuster film Tron: Legacy taking the group to even bigger heights. Their hype has only grown every day since, with countless electronic fans hoping to get the chance to see the duo.
Well it now seems that all the rumors and waiting have possibly come an end. The concert monitoring service Songkick just sent those who follow Daft Punk the notie below letting them know that they will be appearing this year at Coachella, alongside The Rolling Stones, Phoenix, and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs I might add. This might be the moment that we have all been waiting for.
At first I grew skeptical as this wasn’t from any Daft Punk source. But then they have also confirmed to be working on the new album with legendary Nile Rogers on a new album set to come out in 2013. These Coachella headline dates would align with the release of this new album early next year.
Another point leading us to believe the Coachella leak, is a just earlier this year their was a massive information leak from world famous live muscian photographer Olver James L’eroe about DP playing the European festvial circuit (Danmark “Rosklide”, Spain “Primavera Sound”, Norway “Oyafestivalen” England “Glastonbury” and Sweden “Peace and Love”). The phographer has since gotten heat from the festival promoters, leading us to believe in it’s truth. Below is a Facebook conversation with the photagrpher Oliver leaking the European news.
With European festival speculations, Coachella near confirmation, new album in works, and their website even wen under construction earlier last month. All of these things add up to really let us believe that 2013 is finally the return of Daft Punk.. maybe they will throw in that World Tour we have been hearing about for so long. We will keep you update as we learn more details. And remember to follow our Twitter for the latest news. Enjoy!
