Last weekend, Reno hosted the electrifying Bass Camp VI Festival, an EDM-lover’s dream come true.
From Friday, July 29, to Sunday, July 30, the city was alive with the pulsating beats of some of today’s best artists, creating an unforgettable experience for festival-goers.
The festival kicked off with a bang on Friday with a series of high-energy, pre-parties at Reno’s most popular clubs, including Deadringer, Virginia Street Brewhouse, Cargo Concert Hall, and Cypress. These parties set the tone for the weekend ahead, bringing the electronic music community together in anticipation of the main event. Attendees were treated to insane sets from renowned artists like BUKU, Zasz, Jantsen, Destructo, and Speaker Honey, each delivering unforgettable performances that left the crowd in awe.
Saturday’s main event took place at the picturesque Wingfield Park, located along the Truckee River in downtown Reno. The pre-party at J-Resort Casino’s pool provided the perfect vibe, with a large dance space and a pool equipped with impeccable sound, allowing festival-goers to dance and cool off simultaneously. DJs like David Aaron, Good Times Ahead, Fox&Buck, and the Kirkland Brothers served up infectious beats, creating an atmosphere of pure enjoyment.
Meanwhile, at the new headquarters in Wingfield Park, the main stage featured an all-star lineup that included Deadmau5, Madeon, Ghastly, Mitis, Charly Jordan, and Kaleena. The Dancetronauts Stage was ablaze with energy thanks to Good Times Ahead, Subdocta, Vampa, and the Dancetronauts DJs. Both stages boasted awe-inspiring pyrotechnics, state-of-the-art sound, and lighting systems that elevated the festival’s production value.
For those seeking a more intimate and immersive experience, The Giving Tree Stage offered a silent disco with two channels of House and Bass options, allowing attendees to choose their preferred vibe. The location alongside the Truckee River also allowed festival-goers to cool off and enjoy the music simultaneously, adding a unique touch to the event.
As the epic conclusion of Deadmau5’s set marked the end of Saturday night’s main event, the party was far from over. Festival-goers flocked to various after-parties at participating venues across Reno, where artists like Stylust, KYU, A-TRAK, VNSSA, Huerta, TRUTH x LIES, and many others kept the energy alive until the early hours of the morning, ensuring that the spirit of Bass Camp VI never waned.
