Some of you may have noticed at this point that we at Booms and Claps have quite the affinity for Bass Coast Electronic Music and Arts Festival, located in Merritt, B.C. In addition to the beautiful festival grounds, top notch vibes and aesthetic, and amazing food, a huge part of why we love Bass Coast so much is the world-renowned lineup curated by the festival co-founders Andrea Graham (The Librarian) and Liz Thompson. Every year, for a weekend in mid-July (8th to the 11th this year), they gather some of the most influential underground bass music artists in the world, many of whom have never been to North America before. To be quite honest, I have yet to see a festival lineup on this continent that meets the standard set by Bass Coast.
This year’s lineup is no different, and even though this is the just the first wave of artists and there are many more to be announced, we’ve already been thoroughly sold. The lineup announcement includes Booms and Claps favorites such as Ivy Lab (I can’t even stress how important this is), Machinedrum, Bleep Bloop, Stray, Sabre, Scratcha DVA, Ardalan, Kahn, Ekali, and many others.
Check out the full lineup announcement video below, and don’t forget to grab your tickets here!
See you all out in Merritt!
