Bassnectar taps Lupe Fiasco, Z-Trip, Prefuse 73 for Bass Island


    Lorin Ashton, better known as Bassnectar, is a festival phenomenon. The bass music DJ already has plans for over a dozen summer music festivals, including appearances at Sasquatch! and Summer Camp during Memorial Day weekend, yet the central California native still finds time to curate mini-festivals all on his own. Like his previous “Bass Center” events in Colorado and Asheville, NC, Bassnectar is bringing an evening of diverse electronic music to New York City’s South Island Field on Governors Island.

    Dubbed “Bass Island”, the August 13th event features rapper Lupe Fiasco, Prefuse 73, Z-Trip, Virtual Boy, Dave Nada, and Bulgaria’s Joro Boro. For all of New York’s bass heads, pick up tickets quickly, because this will be Bassnectar’s only New York City appearance for the remainder of 2011. Tickets for the event come in at less than $50 including fees, and are available here. In the meantime, check out Bassnectar’s latest free release, a remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Lights” below.
