Bass Camp Festival, Lake Tahoe’s largest summer electronic music festival, brings a full day and evening of national DJ headliners, art cars, live art, exhibitions, a vendor village and food trucks to Wingfield Park in downtown Reno for the first Bass Camp in the Park while kicking off this year’s Artown festival.
Revelers can celebrate the inaugural Reno event along the Truckee River on Saturday, June 30 from 3-10 p.m.
To serve as its main stage for the Reno event, Bass Camp Festival brings its acclaimed Dancetronauts Bass Station Stage/Art Car, a rocket-ship-style stage, replete with sound, lighting and flaming special-effects, dubbed for the Las Vegas-hailing DJs performing at the event.
It has also been featured at the South Lake Tahoe Bass Camp Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) and Burning Man over the years.
Australian DJ Thomas Jack, known for his upbeat dance tracks laden with live instruments like flute, saxophone, and guitar, headlines the event.
In direct support of Thomas Jack is global trailblazers in modern dance music, Hotel Garuda. Comprised of DJ/producers Manila Killa and Candleweather, the acclaimed duo will serve up an array of remixes that helped garner them four consecutive number one ratings on the Hype Machine charts, more than 25 million streams on SoundCloud alone and praise from Billboard, Harper’s Bazaar and Complex.
Ibiza-born Kryoman, now a northern Nevada local residing in Incline Village, brings his globally celebrated trap, EDM and future house music techniques and breathtaking robotic production—including two enormous, dynamic robots—to the festival stage.
Kryoman has performed with industry legends like Aoki, Guetta and the Black Eyed Peas.
Dancetronauts bring their riveting, multi-sensory production that includes dancers, lighting effects, world-class DJs and a pair of engaging frontmen to Base Camp in the Park. Other headliners will be announced closer to festival time.
